Melbourne's PhotoMarathon 2017

April 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I had a lot of fun participating in Melbourne's Photo Marathon last year. It wasn't difficult to sign up for another one this year. The challenge is to take 9 pictures of 9 topics in 9 hours. The rules are no post production; photos must be taken on the same day, in the sequence which the topics released during the day.  

There's no drama like 'battery ran out' like last year. However, it was challenging to shoot the topics given, and I was not entirely happy with the shots. Some participants I spoke to were having issues find new ideas of the previous topic while shooting another topic. I was having some mental block a few times.  Here are the 9 topics: 

  1. My photoMarathon entry number 
  2. Survival of the fittest
  3. Blue
  4. Juxtaposition
  5. Bird's eye view
  6. Quirky
  7. Food for thought 
  8. My little secret
  9. Underground 

Here are the photos I took:

My PhotoMarathon entry numberTook me at least 90 minutes to find this number.

Survival of the fittestYou need water to survive after a great work out

Bluehmm ... it has blue

Juxtaposition I need to look up the dictionary to find out the meaning of the word, but then it's hard to interpret that too.

Bird's eye viewLighting was a challenge and I wished I had a graduated density filter at that time to balance out the sky and the stairs.

QuirkyProbably my favourite, as people will be looking for characters or people. I was looking for the meaning so to speak.

Food for thoughtThinking that it should speak to people who are trapped in their situation.

My Little SecretWas looking for something that is not so obvious

UndergroundI think I may get quite a lot of similar pictures

The exhibition of all the participants photos will be held on 13 May 2017 for 2 weeks at Magnet Gallery.  Hughe thank you to the organisers this year again.
