Announcing the WINNER of the TRACING RABBITS PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE

Vintaged Rabbit and Traci Sewell Photography are excited to announce our winner of the Tracing Rabbits Photography Challenge! BUT before we do that, we thought we should share the story of how this challenge came about.

Vintaged Rabbit and Traci Sewell Photography have worked together on some photography project in the past and while doing that, we found that we challenge eachother to look at our creative and technical sides a little differently. Having someone to challenge how you see the world through your lens is a good thing and it has certianly helped us develop our style and improve our technical abilities. Through this activity, we decided that it would be fun if we challeneged other people too and even more fun if we offer a prize for the winners. So we set out looking for sponsor and were so fortunate to have found five wonderful sponsor step forward and support the challenge. We have been working with them throughout the challenge and would quickly reccommend them to everyone!

So, with all of that said, we would like to THANK everyone who participated in the photography challenge and our sponsors. We hope you all participants were challenged and learned something about themselves and photography while participating.

Enough of the small chat… time to announce the winner!

Week 5 – Rule of Thirds

 

Hello Challengers!

Week 5’s challenge is to use the Rule of Thirds. The composition of your photograph really determines what the viewer sees in the picture. Try to imagine your view finder as divided into nine boxes, equally sized. Generally you want to try to choose to place your subject in one of the four spot where the lines intersect. 

(Granted I could have cropped this better so that he could have been on the upper right intersection point but motor bike racing is motor bike racing. They don’t always land and take off where you want them to!) Another consideration is to either “see” where the subject is going or where they were previously. In this spot above it found it more important to see the jump that the rider took off on. In the picture below from Traci Sewell, baby girl is showing you where to look by placing her in the right third of the screen. This creates so much more interest in the picture, instead of just seeing a picture of her adorable face…even though that would be ok too!

Challengers have fun and don’t forget to submit your pictures by Sunday night at 8:00pm MST!!!
