“The Decisive Moment” was a term coined by the pioneer of street photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson. During his time, photography was still a relatively new art medium and it wasn’t taken seriously. Furthermore, photographers were often criticised for not having the same discipline and creativity as traditional artists as photographers can create their images in a matter of seconds, not hours.
This month we've done something different for our photo competition, instead of a literal theme (sports, wildlife, landscape etc.), we've opted for something more creative.
We've asked you to show us your "Different Perspective", we want to see how you view the world. Whether it's a birdseye view, fisheye or any view your imagination can conjure up, we want to see it :-)
To help you along, this weeks Flickr Friday is all about different perspectives, we've searched the web for images to inspire you and spark your creativity.
So have a look, be inspired and join the fun.
Once again, with the support of Canon Australia, the Ted's Fountain Gate team have held another successful Canon Lens Day. This was all about macro and the use of speedlights with close up capabilities. Having this on the weekend of Ted's huge "Friday the 13th" lens sale was perfect timing for photographers to test some lenses in the real world and grab some great deals!
If you happened to miss out on this event, don't worry, there are more to come :-) Just make sure you follow Ted's on Facebook HERE, or sign up to our mailing list HERE to get exclusive invites to these great FREE events.... Read More
