CHAT - Out of Focus - Weekly Competition 18/24th January 2010
« on: January 17, 2010, 05:49:13 PM »
The subject for next weeks competition is .....

'OUT OF FOCUS'

We all strive to get our shots perfectly in focus with the details pin sharp.  So this week, let's go against this photography 'rule' and do the complete opposite.  Despite your photo being out of focus, it should still retain enough shape/form/definition so that the subject is still identifiable.  

For clarification:
  • shots with a narrow depth of field do NOT count
  • the entire photo should be out of focus

Have fun  :)

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 18th to Sunday 24th January.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 25th January.
Poll will be up Tuesday 26th January until 23.59pm Friday 29th January.
Winner to be announced Saturday 30th January (winner should post the new topic no later than 23.59 Sunday 31st January).


The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win
create an entries thread
create a chat thread
create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie sunday xx to Monday xx

pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59 Monday night

Poll to be created Tuesday to run till Friday, winner declared Saturday

Editing limits to be specified by the person choosing the competition subject, if nothing is mentioned then there is no limit to editing allowed.

Montage images should only contain images taken within specified dates

Please don't vote for your own entry

Everyone is welcome and comments and critique on the entries are also welcome

No problem. Getting anything in focus is hard labour for me. I hope you can tell the difference between motion blur and bad focusing.  ;)

Oh Joy!  Instead of "keep 1, delete 99", this week might be "keep 100".

Actually, this sounds really difficult - produce an out of focus photo and convince everyone it was supposed to be like that  :legit:

Ok, I'll be first this week..  great fun subject, as you can see my props mean that I am no longer sure if any shots in the galleries are in focus or not  :beer:  and I hope the poll for last weeks is ok lmao..  This is allmost a true idea of how I am seeing right now...  Actually I even had to refer to my camera manual believe it or not, I found that the wireless finction on the 7D cant give you second curtain flash functions :)  I'm going to post the third shot in this series for my entry as its quite hard to keep the shot oof when using the zoom technique :)

Hope you have as much fun as I have, hic  :beer:

Those pictures are outrageous. Coke? Next to Whisky? Unbelievable.

Thanks for doing the poll - looks fine, so obviously you did it afterwards.  :beer:
