This week's contest will be something that I'm hoping will be fun to experiment with, be it in the garden, on the street, inside your house or in a studio. I'm talking about a cucoloris (or a "cookie") effect, where there is a shadow pattern on your subject. You can spend any amount of time to create the exact pattern you want by cutting shapes into cardboard and using it with sun or a flash, or you can just go outside and see what happens when people are walking in a garden on a sunny day. Or something completely different. Of course, you subject doesn't have to be human, sometimes clouds create fantastic patterns on landscape. The photographs must be your own work. Be creative and have fun. You may only submit one photo per contest. Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place. The contest runs for one week, starting NOW! At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place). Winners please update the Weekly Photo Contest Master thread As an example of the technique, I'm using a school project we just did the other day with my mate Mika Levälampi and others. This is Mika's shot and edit, while I was holding the cardboard: And of course there are thousands of photos for inspiration when you google "cucoloris photography".
