Nice work guys!!

Thanks @Deeperblue for organising these challenges, and thanks @Chunghauphoto for last weeks theme, judging, and advice.

Having thought about it, and looking at some of last weeks entries, and inspired by some art photography back in the day, I thought a good theme might be ‘Indirect’. It should open the field to some interesting use of distortion, reflection, projection, and all manner of things. It in some ways may also lead to thinking more about the photo as image, rather than specifically about the watch being photographed. Be as tangential as you like… that’s indirect in itself.

Here’s a collage of some I whipped up this afternoon, and from existing shots, using household objects really — just to get a feel, and hopefully they might give some good ideas how to go about it for you guys:

So.

‘Indirect’

I look forwards to seeing what comes up. 🙂

Edit:

And of course, as @Chunghauphoto started last week, remember you can always post images for critique — rather than as entries — by simply labelling them as such!

Oh wow!

This is going to be interesting!

I am happy to put my photo forward for critique when I've done it and will tag @JaimeMadeira and @Chunghauphoto for their kind advice when I do 👍

I would add my favorite indirect photo, but I think I’ve posted it like 200+ times on WC now, so won’t force it on y’all yet again!

a) How come we can't do gifs anymore??? (Actually, I know the answer... they're like 1MB files, while photos are much smaller.)

b) Here it is in all its glory!

Had to wake my colleagues up for this💤💤😉

Don’t forget you guys can crop and tinker with images in apps like Snapseed and Lightroom (both free, both handy) as well as bunches of others to bring a finish to your photo. It’s like using a polishing cloth (or Scotchbrite) to your watch.
