Photoh Competition 118: Using Blur in Photography Finalists Montage

The theme for our photography competition was Using Blur in Photography

Blur...whether you love it or loathe it, welcome it or avoid it, blur can actually play a great part in getting creative with your camera.

Blur can be one of your biggest enemies when you're first getting to grips with using shutter speed, and when you check the back of the camera to see your 100th blurry photo in a row. But it can also be used to capture things like movement, or abstract scenes.

We asked you to take the shutter speed down a notch this fortnight, and discover ways in which to embrace the blur!

All of the photos from this competition theme can be seen on the Photoh Facebook page competition here.

Here are our finalists for the Using Blur in Photography competition:

Samantha Lodge, Adelaide

‎Dez Mack, Brisbane

David Reichert, Melbourne

Lesley Florey, Perth

Jocelyn Aldis, Sydney

The Winner

The winner this fortnight is...David Reichert from Melbourne!

Congratulations! You have won a $100 photography voucher!
It can be incredibly tricky to think outside the box when photographing a familiar object or subject. We think that David has nailed it here, and reduced a passing bird into an abstract concoction of beautiful blur.

There's just enough shape and form to immediately signal to the viewer that this is a bird passing the lens, and enough blur to give you an idea of the speed and movement of the wings.

This photo offers us something unusual; a movement slowed down so much that it would be impossible to see without a camera to capture the seconds passing by.

Thank you David for embracing the blur and showing us something unusual!

The theme for next fortnight is Photo Walk: Your city

Photoh Competition Photography Classes Brisbane Melbourne Adelaide Sydney Perth Australia

Many of us walk the streets of our town or city each day, passing familiar landmarks, buildings and places. How often do you stop and appreciate the scenes you see every day?

This challenge is all about slowing down, and seeing your city through the eyes of a tourist, or perhaps a photojournalist.

If you were approached to take photos to represent your city, what would you capture? How could you sum up your local area on a postcard?

We want to see photos that champion and celebrate your city, and we hope you enjoy discovering what's on your doorstep!
