Welcome to Week 37 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. The final TPC of 2016. After last week’s wonderful response for the theme of Lights, I figured that there might be a very opportune challenge theme to follow the brightness of Lights…
Yes, I could have gone to the dark side, which would not exactly make me a Rogue One (bad pun, but hard to resist 🙂 ), but with the short days and long nights in the Northern Hemisphere, there’s enough darkness already. Therefore, this week’s challenge of New Year, which I would encourage you to take into any direction that you might like.
Your direction can be a representation of what you hope and expect to see in the New Year, or how you plan to celebrate the New Year, what you’d like to eat on New Year’s Eve… You get the idea, be creative and don’t hold back. As bit of inspiration, I’m taking a darker direction, as it crossed my view, as I was looking for some images (I promise that the round-up image will be happier!):
This creation by Dave Webb, whose works are very imaginative, is from his Corporate series. I photographed it several years ago to show off the cool characteristics of this sculpture. Plus it was a great exercise in studio lighting to get the deep black backdrop. And yes, it does make me think of 2017…
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
Have fun going out there (or staying indoors) and finding the light! I’m looking forward to the great images that you’ll come up with!
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D MkIII using an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. Exposure settings were at f/8 and 1/100 second with 100 ISO. Studio lights were used to get the amount of light just right.
