Weekly Theme - Motion

by bilbaroo on Dec 5th 2017

Another goal for many budding, and experienced photographers, is to be able to capture some action, which is the inspiration behind this week'd theme: motion!

Wherever you are, theres a good chance you won't have to look far to spot something moving, whether it's a car zooming past, a bird flying overhead or a morning jogger striding past.

Maybe you'll create your own motion, perhaps by causing ripples in water (inspired by the latest theme winner!), drawing in a dark sky with flashlights, or asking your children to leap in the air.

What ever you decide, try swotting up on how to take burst shots and have fun with it!

How to enter this week's theme

When uploading your photos use the tag section (on the edit/organise screen) and insert this week's theme tag: theme-motion.

Entry Guidelines: Photos must be your own and must have been taken and uploaded from Monday 4th December until the following Saturday (6 days). 5 finalists will be chosen on the Sunday afternoon (PST), then you get to vote for the winner.

Winner of the 'Zoom' theme

Thanks again to everyone who cast a vote for this week's finalists, we're excited to announce @christinabengephotography as the winner of the zoom theme!

What looks so simple and sleek, can be a real challenge to master, which is what we love most about @christinabengephotography's stunning photograph. Everything is working in harmony, from the crisp capture of movement, to a tightly cropped frame and bold contrast between the red dyed water and grey background. It was especially lovely reading the secret behind the shot in the comments too!

Vote for the 'Rule of Thirds' theme winner

We loved looking through all of your entries to the rule of thirds theme - so, thanks for all the submissions!

As usual, it wasn't easy to choose just five finalists, but we got there in the end!

To vote, just reply to this blog post with the number (in digit form) of the photo you would like to see win.

QUESTION: Has theme-motion been used before? I'm seeing entries from 2010 under that tab...

@byrdlip Hi! Apologies for not explaining sooner - if a word has already been used for a theme we'll recycle it if there are only a handful of old submissions that show up. It's easy enough to exclude a couple of entries for the previous time round, plus it's getting very tricky to think of brand new themes every week!

Thanks again to everyone who voted, the new theme is now live :-) I hope you enjoy it!
