I decided to set some photography themes for the Project 52 which I am doing this year on shanemcdonald.me. I have not set dates against these as I want to be able to use them when ever I find a suitable subject or opportunity.

I will then link up the themes below to the corresponding post later in the year. It might be interesting to see how many I actually get […]

The photo below is one which I took on the new iPhone 4S, in the rain, on a cloudy day […]

A recent club competition was a photo theme “BLUE’ – therefore any photo which could fall under the style or theme of blue. I had a selection problem on my hands as I had 2 main contenders. Photo selection is critical when submitting your work to a portfolio or photography competition. Sometimes your personal feelings of a photo can overweigh the ‘better’ photo. Therefore you may have 2 or 3 photos which you can’t decide between – the wrong choice might be your favourite one, the right choice is the better photo. (I think on this occasion I let my […]
