Photography Challenge 86: Finding a Viewpoint Montage

Our theme this fortnight at the Photoh groups was 'Finding a Viewpoint'.

We all see and interpret the world around us in our own unique way, so this challenge was all about showing that in your photography.

We were looking for photographers who showed thought about the angle or perspective when taking their shot. Moving your camera into a low or high angle can make such a difference to your final photo, and can help tell a story about the subject.

You can see all of the competition entries here on the Photoh Facebook page .

Judging is now only done for first and second place winners only. Any feedback on images can be sought in our Facebook groups during Critique Me Tuesday, both before and after the competitions, just be sure to tag the instructor in each group, who is identified each Tuesday night.

The finalists this fortnight are:

Nichola Johnson, Adelaide

The winner this fortnight is...David Tillett ffrom Sydney! Congratulations David! You have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
David has been clever here by using a frame found from his surroundings to capture the colourful scene in the background. The colours of the waterfront workshops are emphasised by the fact that the frame is a neutral tone, allowing the small slice of view to really shine. Everyone who has taken this ferry route in Sydney will be familiar with those colourful workshops, but David has shown them in a whole new light!

And in second place we have...Nichola Johnson from Adelaide, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher!
Nichola's photo is a spot-on example of how just moving your camera away from an eye-level view can really help tell a story about the subject.
Also the way Nichola has cropped this image is clever as all the focus remains on the hands - a very subtle way of showing human gestures and feelings. The high angle looking down creates a sense of vulnerability in a way - think about how the story would be different if the person was photographed from a low angle; they might be perceived as powerful and confident.

The theme for next fortnight is Capturing Winter Photography.
We may not have the typical postcard picture of winter here in Australia in the sense that our major cities aren't blanketed in snow every season, but that doesn't mean that you can't 'do' winter photography.
Think about how you can capture winter by showing stories of: the changing nature, people wrapping up warm, the early sunsets and dark evenings. Perhaps there are Christmas in July events in your local area, or winter festivals?

Get some ideas from our Winter Photography blog article here.
