Re: Contest Corner Challenge #83: In the Background

Is there any place here where we can see the photos that have been already entered for cc#83?

HI Lisa. Unfortunatly, the entries are kept secret untill the voting thread is up. Some of the things you might try are say.....find a subject at the end of a fence, or say....looking out an open door at a subject in the distance, or,.....looking through a bunch of wine glasses at the bottle of wine in the distance. There are a pile of possibilities. Another approach, which might be hard....find a subject, and start walking backwards, till you have enough forground to make the image interesting.
Sometimes even a sign....say....No trespassing, and keep it in the forground, but in the distance, there is somebody walking away.
Sorry...not the greatist idea, but I hope it helps you a bit. If you get stuck, you are welcome to PM me.
Im still trying to get my rear end out there to find something. Have some ideas, but work is keeping me busy.

Thanks Carl. That was helpful. I'm having a hard time here figuring it out. Not quite sure what to do.

No probs. It wasnt much. Just stuff that came to me while I read this thread. I think another way to explain it would be, your eye must lead the viewer to something in the distance, but also leaving enough forground to keep the photo interesting. Say...a beach sunset, with a couple way off in the distance for a stroll, or a winding road, with a car at the end just about to go out of site. Sure the road could be a subject, but the main subject would be the car in the distance.
Now I just have to get my butt out and shoot something too. I have a ton of ideas, but need to get there.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #83: In the Background

You might also consider taking the shot with a larger f/stop. Putting the focus on the subject in the background would then cause some 'blur' in the foreground. So for example, if you shot a person in a crowd, where there were people between you and the main subject, using an f/stop like f/4 or f/5.6 and a longer focal length could render the subject in focus and the people between you and the subject into an out of focus blur. Just another idea to play with.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #83: In the Background

This isn't a great photo but an example of one view of the challenge in my opinion.
