Task 18 SHADOWS are cast by the subject with the light in front of them. SILHOUETTES are created with the light behind the subject. Have a go at both – look for interesting shapes. Share your photos online #viewfinders #dailyphotos #keepsmiling #stayhome

Task 18 – Shadows and Silhouettes!


Shadows
are cast by the subject with the light in front of them.


Silhouettes
(yes, I had to check the spelling too!) are created with the light behind the subject. Have a go at both – look for interesting shapes.

This photo from Pam Watson is an example of both!

Daily Photos – Task 16 – The tablet/mobile phone trick

TASK 16: Tablet/Mobile phone trick. This needs a phone/tablet for the effect – and a camera or another device to take the photo. You also need a nice picture/painting/photo and need to place it on the floor.

TASK 16: Tablet/Mobile phone trick. This needs a camera phone/tablet for the effect – and a camera or another device to take the photo.

Put a nice picture on the floor. You take a photo of the picture using your phone/tablet – you need to make sure that you take the photo parallel to the picture and you can take a closer-up photo of part of the picture. You can tilt it. You can then zoom in on the first photo until the image you see is the same size as the picture when placed on it. With your second camera take the final pictures.

Fiddly but fun. Give it a go. Share your results online.

TASK 14: Creative Blur… or getting it wrong – but rightly so!

TASK 14: Creative Blur… or getting it wrong! This will make photographers of you all! Find out more…

TASK 14: Creative Blur… or getting it wrong – but rightly so!

This will make photographers of you all! Go to somewhere in the house where it is very bright and colourful (wallpaper perhaps?) As you take a photograph, move your phone or camera in a horizontal or vertical movement. Try to get a nice creative blur of colour. PS: You’ll find that ‘getting it wrong’ nicely, is quite difficult and will take a few attempts. But keep at it, you’ll get there!

As photographers, we call it Intentional Camera Movement – a deliberate act to create an effect.

Task 13 – Close-up puzzles

TASK 13 of our DAILY PHOTOS:

Close-up puzzles: Take a photo of something nearby, zoom in really close and get folks to guess what it is. Share your photo puzzles online. Don’t forget to give your audience the answer! The kids with their mobiles might enjoy this one too.

Share your photos on social media with the hashtags #viewfinders #dailyphotos #keepsmiling #stayhome

Whilst Hedon Viewfinders club members have done this photo challenge before, this idea was actually sent in by one of our viewing public who says “…I’m really loving your daily photo activity!”

If you’ve got ideas for Daily Tasks, then speak to Club Members or e-mail them through to us at viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk. We have some similar puzzles and games happening during the Club’s online Happy Hour on Saturday.

It’s Happy Hour! Sat 28 March 2020 at 9pm.

After our first trial using Zoom, we’ve agreed to have weekly Club Meetings online every Wednesday night at 7pm. And ‘Happy Hour’ every Saturday at 9pm.

At the Club Meetings, we’ll aim to continue having fun with the hobby and pastime that we love so much, whilst Happy Hour will be a much more relaxed affair!

We invite you to join us for our first Happy Hour event (actually just over half-an-hour) on Saturday at 9pm – and here is the invitation link:

https://us04web.zoom.us/j/836189559

If you have downloaded the Zoom software already, then the Meeting ID: 836-189-559 is what will be useful.

Upon joining the meeting just before 9pm you will find yourself in the ‘Waiting Room’ and I’ll invite you to join the meeting from there. In the waiting room, you will have the opportunity to test your computer/device audio and video settings for use in the Happy Hour. If you click the link now, nothing much will happen, although you can download the meeting software. Any difficulties with the technology then do get in touch and we’ll try to help.

The event will be a light-hearted occasion. We want to firstly check everyone’s okay at this unsettling time, and offer comfort and advice if need be.

During the event everybody will be offered a moment in the spotlight should they wish, a spot to do something, say something, share something, etc. This will be for a minute or two-minute spot depending on how many join in. So you might tell a joke, tell us how you’re passing the time, play the ukulele, or share a photo or something on your computer. We’ll let you know how to use the software as we go along.

Our meetings are normally open to the public, and this will be no different – however, if you’re a new member, we just need to know that you are coming along – we won’t let strangers join the meeting.

Do check out Zoom, it might be useful to you for other things too: https://zoom.us/docs/en-us/covid19.html

Sign up to get news from the club. CONTACT US for more information. Free, fun and friendly photographic club. Open to all. No waiting list. No membership required.
