get pushed #171 - the 10-metre collage

wow! did i get really pushed this week. april @aecasey is my partner and she gave me this challenge: "follow Richard's @vignouse challenge of moving 10 meters and composing a new shot of an area and get three shots which you can then create a triptych with."

i thought about this challenge long and hard all week. visited a couple of other places to see what i can make of it. not real happy with what i came up with. doesn't it just eat away at you when you know it's an easy challenge but at the same time you know it's going to take a lot to accomplish?

finally, i decided the pink beach umbrellas would make for a good subject. so off to the sugar beach i went this morning before i went to the gym. it was one fine morning, sun is out, air is a little bit on the coolish side, especially by the lake. hah! and it was still too early for people to come out ergo no one to photobomb my shots.

so, left photo - placed the camera down on the ground, on top of a pile of dead branches so there's no danger of getting sand on the new(ish) camera. there's a large rock about 5 yards away from that willow tree on the left.

middle photo - vantage point, i climbed the said large rock which is probably about 10 metres away from my original position (knees took a bit of a beating climbing that tall rock, but one's gotta do what's gotta be done!) to take this shot. the umbrella on the right of the left photo (yeah, you gotta figure that one, okay? tee-hee!) is not in this middle photo because it's way out there to the right.

right photo - moved another 10 metres. thankfully there was still a lot of space before the edge of the beach so no danger of falling into the cold lake.

maybe you can tell my positions by the shadows. the willow on the right photo is not the same willow tree as in the left of the left photo. also, i locked my lens so that it stayed at 18mm.

i think it's mission accomplished. i'm happy with this.

tomorrow, one night stand starts!
@aecasey - april, is this what you wanted?

@vignouse - how'd i do, sir?

10 metres is good - you just get a bit of the other photo in. You could of course, just do a panorama! But this particular idea is that you frame each one for the wall with a gap in between!

@summerfield I think the girl done good! This complements what I did because I didn't move sideways but backwards and forwards... and my shots were actually only 5 metres apart. I think there's some fun to be had by trying different distances and different directions. After ONS perhaps...

Well done my friend

This is cool! I like looking back and forth and seeing how its the same and how its different. Well done!
November 9th, 2015  
Well done! It turned out very nicely!!

@vignouse - thank you, richard. i appreciate the feedback, and yes, i definitely will give this a go after ONS.

I think this is a great challenge and you have executed it perfectly! I think I will have to experiment with this in the future.

I like all three. I hadn't really thought about deliberately taking multiple pictures at the same time (since if you come back to a site, the scene changes without you even having to move).

great challenge

Like how this works. Reminds me of when a couple of 365'r get together and you see the same scene through different lens.
