    Favourite Christmas SongCompleted Jan 14, 2018

    Happy Holiday greetings to everyone. Hard to believe that Christmas is a few weeks away but here it is. This month's challenge is to find an image that portrays either a title or part of your favourite Christmas song. It could be classic like "White Christmas" or a newer song such as "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus". Hopefully you will have fun with this one.

    In case you are stumped for a song, here is a list of popular Christmas songs.

      About Olaf Sztaba

      Olaf first picked up a camera thirty-five years ago. Since then his passion for “seeing” has become a lifetime journey with photography.

      Widely known as a visual poet, Olaf’s unique eye and relentless pursuit of visual simplicity allows him to capture “superbly creative and aesthetically pleasing images.” The images, along with his writings, can be found at www.olafphotoblog.com. Discussions on seeing, creativity, inspiration, street and fine art photography parallel the images.

      Olaf is a founder of Simplicity-In-Seeing – a subscription-based educational and mentoring platform dedicated to the craft of seeing. He is a columnist for the FujiLove Magazine and contributes to numerous online and print media.  

      Olaf spends most of his time writing and photographing in the field, usually exploring the side streets in big cities. He is a sought-after speaker and educator, leading photography workshops around the world. He is currently working on a series of books about creativity and his personal approach to image creation. 

      Olaf lives in Coquitlam, British Columbia with his wife Kasia, his son Olivier and their furry four-legged companion, Bailey.

  3. Theme
    Composition: TrianglesSubmissions due Jan 31, 2018

    One of the first things in photography you learn is composition so we are going back to basics to start off the new year - triangles in your composition. In construction, triangles are one of the strongest shapes because any force is evenly spread throughout all three sides. Subconsciously our brains associate triangles with strength. When presented base down they give an impression of stability and upended, an impression of instability.

    This month's challenge is to submit up to three images that best show triangles in your composition - either showing strength and stability or instability. I have included a couple of articles to explain triangular composition and examples.
