Sony World Photography Awards 2013 - Open Competition Skip to main Content You are here Home Competitions Shooting Challenge #7 Results: Still Life It's getting exceedingly difficult to pick the winner of each fortnight's Shooting Challenge, and this one was no different. Thanks to everyone that took the time to create their images; I can see that many of you went the extra mile. This involved the ‘borrowing’ of their wife’s underwear; stealing children’s toys (may not be true,) and lots of spillage. So, thanks for all your hard work. A couple of people didn’t adhere to the rules (dates of shots in EXIF date; filesize under 3MB) and so were disqualified -- sorry. Keep to the rules next time, people! It gives me great pleasure in announcing Adam Westwell as the winner of this Shooting Challenge with his fantastic shot of a ukulele. Here’s how he did it: ‘Photo of my Ohana Ukelele, carefully positioned in front of a table lamp. Well done Adam! High fives must also go to the following (in alphabetical first name order): Andy Adams Darius Sirvinskas James Farley Milad Gol Muntzeem Nazir Nicolas Billy

Photographing the Sky with your DSLR Camera - The Canadian Nature Photorapher by Dr. Robert Berdan October 17, 2011 My first picture of the Night Sky taken with an Olympus OM-1 SLR camera on tripod on Kodachrome 64. The stars making up the big dipper are circled. Photographing the night sky requires nothing more then a digital single lens reflex (DSLR ) camera and a tripod. A good subject to start with on a clear night are constellations. Orion constellation, Fort McMurray - January around midnight. 20-30 mm Zoom lens, At F2.8. The Big dipper is the easiest constellation to see - the stars have been circled to see them better. There are many subjects you can photograph at night. Viewing and photographing the milky way requires a reasonable dark site. This is a photo of the Milky way taken with a 24 mm F1.4 Canon lens at F2.2 - 30 second exposure ISO 1600 TIn this photo the Milky way extends right down to the horizon, The Crossing resort, Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan. Noctilucent clouds are high altitude clouds visible at twilight. Recommend Reading
