The theme for the photography challenge for the group classes this fortnight was backlighting. The aim of the classes was to explain how to get better exposed and well focused photos when shooting straight into the sun, and even capturing starbursts and a bit of haze, too.
The sun shone bright in Brisbane and Sydney, but didn't cooperate in the other cities. Make up classes for backlighting are being held in Melbourne and Perth for the students in those cities who missed out. We received a wide range of images regardless, from people who attended the classes as well as from others practising at home.
You can view all the photos that were entered in the album on the Photoh Facebook page. The finalists for this fortnight are:
Marnie Sullivan – Adelaide
Rebecca Collins – Brisbane
Gavin Marsh – Brisbane
Pio Marceline – Melbourne
Leece Johnson – Perth
Wendy Couzens – Perth

The winner for first prize this fortnight is...Gavin Marsh from Brisbane! He will receive a $100 JB HiFi voucher.
