2013 Challenge, Week 39: Sky

For this week, all you have to do is look up. The theme is SKY. Shoot anything that incorporates the sky as the key element of the shot. Sunsets and sunrises are always good for sky shots, but venture out and get creative.

Looking up in the city usually means you’ll be including skyscrapers, which make for great leading lines that seem to stretch into infinity.

Night skies can be dramatic, and challenging. I’ve never taken a long exposure of the sky that I liked. It’s a technique that requires practice, patience, and plenty of spare batteries.

You can also incorporate a main subject set against the sky as backdrop.

This week’s challenge is good opportunity to experiment and try something new. The sky is everywhere, even if it’s cloudy. The sky changes throughout the day, so you can take shots just about anytime you’re in the mood. Look up, and shoot.

As always post your best shot and share with the Photo Challenge Community. Participating in the 2013 Photo Challenge is fun and easy. Post and share your images with the Photo Challenge Community on  Google+, Facebook,or Flickr.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
