It's been a while since I've done a Round Robin challenge, and the new year seems like a good time to get back into the swing of things.
The assignment this time is to choose three things we'd like to photograph or techniques we'd like to learn. We were to choose one and present it this week, and offer the other two as suggestions for upcoming challenges.
One thing I'd like to learn to do is panning, or following a moving object with the camera so that it stays in focus while the background blurs, giving a sense of motion. I tried it while my son flew his model airplane this fall, without much success. This shot might not have been bad if I had had more of the ground in the frame. Let's call this challenge "Greased Lightning!"
And here are my other two:
The Color Purple. You don't see it much, and it's hard to capture in a photo. You'll have to look around to find it, and you'll have to get your settings right. But it is the color of royalty and magic, so the possibilities could be worth the hunt.
Door Number Three. I love doors of all sorts: old ones, new ones, hidden ones, forgotten ones. How about doing a set of three, each with its own personality and story?
As always, there's more to see over at Round Robins: Camera Resolutions.
