Hedon Viewfinders – 52 Week Photography Challenge 2022.
“Close up” photography
Taking close up photos of objects and subjects can reveal details that perhaps go unnoticed otherwise.
Whether it’s flowers, insects, textures, etc, a close-up photo can lead to a very different viewpoint and make for a dramatic print or online image. You need to work out just how close your camera or lens needs to be to focus. The objective is to try and fill the frame with your subject, but sometimes you might need to crop the subject in editing software to give the appearance of it being closer.
Your challenge this week is to capture some close up images!
For inspiration and guidance, you might want to have a look at the Close-Up Photographer of the Year website and blog – and you never know, perhaps your image might be an entry for this annual competition!?
As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.
Jo-Anne Powney responded to last week’s “Watch the Sky” challenge and on the last day of what was (locally) a seemingly grey and featureless week, captured these shots! Thank you, Jo-Anne.
EACH WEEK for 2022, we will introduce a new Challenge, Task or Idea to stimulate you into taking new photographs. It’s just for fun. We hope you join in each week. If you’ve had a go at one of the ideas before, then don’t miss it out; instead, try to approach the challenge in a new way.
