K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

05 Sep

Hello and welcome to another Monday and the latest edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which I have dictated the theme for this week.

I asked you to go Into the light, break the rules of conventional wisdom and shoot your photos directly towards a light source; let us see some creative (lens)flair and bright ideas.

I have compiled half a dozen shining examples of excessive brilliance, as well as creating a piece of video artwork (using just my phone, a kaleidoscope and a small flashlight) for one of my recent musical experiments, Inner Sphear.


Update: Here’s an old layering experiment I just found, merging Rhonda with the first of today’s photos…

…and I little gif I made today, using two glitter lamps.

K’lee’s photo for the day can be seen HERE.


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

    Dale, these are really really good! I especially like the ones with trees. I’ll keep watching for Dale and K’lee challenges 🙂

    Wow! Another home run with this one. The musical finish is the kicker. Well done, dude! (I can’t believe I’m running so late today…)

      Thanks, K’lee. It’s ok, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait. ;~}

        Whew! Finally seeing the light today (no pun intended!) Just went with the one photo this time. I figure Mr. Swan’s cool enough to stand on his own.

      I could have synched the music with the visuals better if I’d had more time, but it was a quick job. I might try fine tuning it later.

        Dude, it’s very good! I like to think of it as this was the expression that made it ‘into the light’ this time…
