Scale is an interesting concept as it’s an effect of you telling a story. Controlling perspective, and therein scale, it effects how we view the overall subject and it’s environment. From toy’s and Minnie Mouse to tilt shifts and forced perspectives we had a bit of everything this week. You guys did great!

Winners this week were chosen by Toby and Scott for the challenge.

You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s Instagram challenge #prtv_abstract. Usually we look for the subject and details then shoot to capture the object. Abstract photography is the opposite in that you don’t have a clear objective and it’s somewhat up to the viewer to decide the meaning of the photo. It’s a different way of thinking for those technical and detail oriented, playing to the more artistic side of things. To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_abstract.

I do wish the hiker was up higher – framed inside the brown, but still alovely image and a great use of scale

Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

The little people make it work – what is that thing on the left side though?

Perspective. #prtv #prtv_scale

Scale in every meaning! Creative and beautifully executed, well done!

Scott’s Honorable Mentions:

I like the depth of field and the framing with Minnie Mouse off centre – nice work!

Two clear points of interest well framed. This one caught the eye scrolling through the feed, the colours especially are great.

  1. Thanks for selecting my photo Toby! The thing on the left hand side is a small ‘igloo’ tent with three people sat by it. Unfortunately, although I uploaded the full width pano photo to Instagram, it has chopped off a fair bit on either side.
