Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round-Up 6

Cloudy is a good forecast!

Another week with fantastic entries, which were a delight to see, as it looked like you found some inspiration in this week’s topic.  In this sixth installment of the Tuesday Photo Challenge, the theme was clouds, particularly keeping in mind how they can enhance the scene that is captured in an image.


For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge:

  • iballrtw of the Eyeball Around the World blog, posted a beautifully lit cloud image with sunlight streaming around the edges of the cloud.
  • Sonya of Middleton Road, posted a landscape image that together with the beautiful clouds made me feel like I was in a fairy tale.
  • Miriam of the Out an’ About blog, wove an entire story around the cloud photos that she posted, which were fantastic.
  • Nikki, who writes A Kinder Way showed some of the great Texas skies and provided interpretation to some of the great clouds in her images.
  • Debbie, of ForgivingJournal got some of her creative energy expressed through her cloud images, which inspired!
  • Steve, who writes Meandering Maverick, was stymied by a week of perfect, cloudless weather, so he regaled us with some fantastic cloud images from before.

Thank you to all of you who participated and everyone who supported by reading these posts.  Hope you had as much fun as I did!

Next Tuesday, it will be time for another topic…  I have something in mind already, that I hope will give you a bit of inspiration.

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!
