52 Frames - a weekly photography challenge

So I've found a new creative challenge! I'm going to try adding the weekly photos I create to this one post so the blog doesn't get all cluttered and confusing!

Here's a link to the website that organises it: 52 Frames
Here's their official facebook page: 52 Frames FB page
And here's a link to the discussions around the challenge: 52 Frames photographers

Each week there is a challenge theme - sometimes a subject, sometimes a technique, and an 'extra credit' theme.
Photos must be taken within a strict 7 day time frame and after a few days, 52 photos are selected to showcase, including the one with most likes.
As a community there is a strong ethos of encouragement and critique, it is a great opportunity for me - and everyone in it - to improve technically and support others.

My most recent photos will be added at the top of the post
Week 22: Geometric Shapes


Week 21: Edited by Someone Else
Thank you to Tom Flynn for being my editor!
It was really good to have someone else put their stamp on my photo and open me up to new ideas

Week 20: Looking into frame
Extra credit: Panning
I made a spinning contraption to help me pan
Very little editing other than removing the spike that holds up the model.
This was chosen for the 52 picks
The album can be found here (if you have facebook)
Here's my setup for the photo:


Week 19: Paper (Use one piece of A4 paper)
Extra challenge: high key
You tube helped me to make the flower
Everything you can see is paper, including the background
Lighting was threefold: natural light from the window, a lightbox under the paper and a flash.
Week 18: Abandoned Extra challenge: HDR
I took the wrong lens with me.
Note to self: always listen to your inner voice!
My inner voice told me to take a tripod and the kit lens. Both of which would have been very helpful.
However, I got a shot that isn't too bad and I held the camera steady enough to merge three shots for HDR. It's a very subtle HDR - just enough to get all areas exposed how I wanted them.
It was a little scary on location - I wasn't completely certain I would come out alive!
