Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning yourself (or your subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details, but the effect varies from picture to picture.  Read more from Cheri Lucas Rowlands, and view her incredible shot.

While capturing the sunset, this shot picked up silhouettes of the trees.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

The quickest way between two points might be a straight line, but it’s rarely the most interesting one. From strolling around a new city to browsing the shelves at a neighborhood bookstore, it’s so often the unexpected turns that give meaning to our journeys.  Read more from Ben Huberman for the Weekly Photo Challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

From “Don’t judge a book by its cover” to “Don’t look at the jug, but at what it contains” (an old Rabbinic saying), we’re constantly taught that the contents of things are more important than the vessels, wrappers, and boxes that hold them in place. This week, let’s give outer shells their due and focus our lenses on things that contain other things.  CONTAINERS, this week’s challenge by Ben Huberman.  Read on.
