  • August 2012 Photography **56K Warning**



    To encourage forum users to converse and share ideas and generally inject some community spirit we are holding a monthly photography theme to help get all you nice people use the creative side of your brain. Themes and advice can be discussed and shared here too. There will be no 'best photo' polls nor winners, its just all good fun for anyone who would like to get involved.



    Rules

    -Any camera will do!
    -Photos must be your own
    -Post only your best shots so choose carefully!
    -Post processing to enhance your images is fine but keep it tasteful...

    This months theme is:

    'A Summers Walk'

    Tips:


    • Take a walk, Capture and share.
    • Sunny days can make for harsh lighting, keep in mind the position of the sun. (may end up raining all month ;D)
    • Try to tell a story of your journey
    • If you are out on a sunny day, capitalise using low ISO
    • Remember have fun, and treat yourself to some ice cream!

    Monday 30 July—Sunday 5 August

    Low pressure returns with cooler, wetter weather

    It will be a cool end to the month as frontal systems bring wet weather back to most areas.
    Generally it will be an unsettled start to the week with sunshine and showers. During the middle of the week, low pressure will approach from the west bringing cloudy skies and outbreaks of rain to all. Rain will be heavy in the west with gusty winds.
    The low pressure will sit to the west for the end of the week bringing a mix of sunny spells and showers to all areas, possibly merging into persistent rain across the north and west. The best of any sunny spells will be in the east. It will be windy at times with temperatures close to or just below average, especially in any rain.

    Monday 6 August—Sunday 12 August

    Still sunshine and showers

    High pressure will linger close to the south and lower pressure will sit close to the north. The remainder of the period will see further sunshine and showers, again merging into longer spells of rain in places, particularly towards the far north.
    It will continue to be rather cool but temperatures may recover in any sunnier spells towards the south and east. By the end of the period, some longer spells of drier weather may develop across southern parts with temperatures recovering closer to average.

    Monday 13 August—Sunday 26 August

    No heat wave


    A lengthy spell of hot, sunny weather across the whole country currently looks unlikely towards the end of August. It is most likely that the weather will remain changeable with southern areas having the best of any dry, bright and at times warm weather. Some rain is likely in places, which may be heavy at times, most likely further north.
    I'd suggest making the most of any sunny days to come in your area and keep an eye on the forecasts though its not a problem, rain is part of our summer anyway so don't let it hold you back!

                thanks guys shot in RAW and used the histogram sliders to show off the sky as I was seeing it in the flesh. The atmosphere was so close and moody, ended up getting drenched to the skin 10 mins later, the lowepro 160 storm cover saved the camera from an early death

                      2nd shot is brilliant.

                      for first shot, you could use an ultra wide angle lens to make it even more dramatic.

                        Subtle hints like that are tempting me. Ban plz.

                          I've been out in to the sea off Portsmouth with my old a200 and 75-300 lens - was great fun just trying not to lose in over the end of the boat!

                          Not really a "walk" though, so won't be doing it again for this month
