Instagram Winners - Love

Love was in the air and it meant a good time to get your camera out to shoot the holiday. Theme’s like this are nice to include as love is universal but also means something just slightly different for each person. Those differences bring us together, tear people apart, and make for some great photos this week that vary from photographer to photographer. This week we also had a tutorial by Rose for the DIY Heart Shaped Bokeh for Valentine’s Day and thank you to those who participated.For next week as love was a bit of an easier assignment for everyone with the holiday, next week’s will be a bit trickier. As we are slowly seeing spring come closer and winter start to fade your challenge this week will be shooting a transition. A process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. This could mean life to death, such as cut flowers, or here in Michigan the coming of Robins as the transition to spring. To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_transition.

Toby’s Winner: moment - I like the off-center subjects and the soft muted colors.

Toby’s Honorable Mentions: for effort and A for execution - nicely done!, pretty though I would have cropped it enough to fill the frame with the pink rose.And final mention - Rose had lots of great examples but I really like the cute little playmobile people with heart bokeh - Thanks for taking the time to share your articles with the community Rose.

Rose’s Winner: so many great shots I picked a bokeh winner and a non-bokeh winner! I love the composition and the monochromatic treatment. image is so sweet, and I love the soft treatment. It’s perfect for the subject.

Rose’s Honorable Mentions:

Roy’s Winner: Rose’s tutorial from a background element to prop works well. It’s a nice cute shot that works well for this challenge.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions: to the future in love can make for a great moment. Shooting down the path with the trees acting as a natural frame puts all the focus on the lovely couple.’s Valentine’s without candy? You made a really great photo that incorporates the color theme well with your shot and used a pile large enough to fill the frame nicely.
