This week the challenge was left to the patreon group and they chose shiny as your challenge for the week. With that you guys did a great job with finding the shiniest objects you could or being a bit creative with the idea. With Toby on a McKay Live trip there was no live show this week but Roy and Scott have picked your best shiny photos.

The weekly challenges are still going! You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s challenge #prtv_framing. A bit of a TBT to our older non Instagram challenges on Flickr. Like always to enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Wednesday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_framing.

So as Toby is in Cuba, you can still get a bit of advice for this weeks challenge from this Think Before You Click video on framing.

You can follow Photorec.TV on Instagram here: Photorec.tv

And the team!

I love the angle these are shot at and the shadow cast really adds drama to the shot. Nice work!

Scott’s Honorable Mentions:

I like the perspective of this – it popped out at me in the feed

I like the way depth of field has been used and the clean background to highlight the subject. Nice detail too.

Roy’s Winner:

#135mm #girl #reflection #canal #prtv_shiny

Peter did a good job taking a challenge and tipping it to an advantage. Using a lake to reflect and make a back lit portrait was a good job of thinking outside the box. And with that it’s a great shot that follows the rule of thirds with a balance of the subject to the sun in the background.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

A photo posted by bob grzembski (@bobbiog_) on

This photo from Bob shows you should always examine your surroundings. Not everyone that shoots takes the time to notice the small things and this is a good example of just that. It’s a nice balanced shot with a shallow depth of field that puts all of the focus on the subject.

Can’t get more shiny then a bit of hidden treasure per say. Greg did a great job of finding a bit of shiny booty to photograph. Going for a shallow depth of field with the large gem was a good choice as it puts the focus on the forefront. A lot of people shooting product photography try to get the whole item in crisp focus when sometimes its best to put the showstopper in focus and let the rest fade out.

 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
