Week 38 – Technical: 50mm [Shot with Canon EF 50mm/f1.8 II]
Learn to sneaker zoom! Shoot an image using only the 50mm Focal Length. Either use a fixed 50mm lens or set your zoom lens to 50mm. Since this is the advanced challenge make sure the image is compelling.
This image compels me to eat, I’ll tell you that! Kidding…I took a photo walk by my house with my 50mm and happened upon this sign in a nearby cafe. As it happens, that’s the lens I usually shoot with, so no biggie.
Week 39 – Art: Water [Shot with Canon EF 50mm/f1.8 II]
Your inspiration this week is water. Interpret this how you will.
Another favorite shot of the challenge, taken just as light turned to golden on the Venice Canals. Spot the little water bird in the shadows!
Week 40 – Story: Colorful B & W [Shot with Canon EF 50mm/f1.8 II]
Tell the story of a colorful scene. Because this is the advanced challenge, no flowers. Do it in Black and White.
This one was HARD – I didn’t find many opportunities that were both colorful and would read in black and white, so eventually took this shot of L.A. at sunset. It’s pretty, but I’m not sure it captures the heart of the challenge…
