LOOK UP! A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE

A Photo a Week Challenge: Look Up


From Nancy Merrill:

Looking back through past challenges, I found that I haven’t done a “look up” challenge for a long time, if ever. Trying a different perspective is a great way to enhance your photography. Looking up, looking down, taking a picture from ground level or from an airplane window. All of these are fun ways to change things up. My photo is the ceiling of the Fribourg Cathedral in Fribourg, Switzerland. I’m really glad my husband said, “Look up!” Otherwise, I would have missed this amazing view.


Looking up. Ceilings, of course and some of the concert halls we have visited have ceilings almost as amazing as a cathedral. Clouds and sunrises and sunsets are always worth looking up.

But there are other things in the air …

Little plane up in the air!

  2. I love the second one of the airplane shots best! The clouds in the background are wonderful (and ever so slightly threatening).

    • With a really long lens and better luck than I usually have when shooting things that are very far away and moving. Usually, when my lens is that far extended, I lose my subject. This time, I saw the plane take off and followed it with the camera. So did Garry, but I had a longer lens.

      I have a Panasonic Lumix FZ300 that goes from 24 mm wide angle to 600 mm long all at f2.8, so it’s really good for that kind of shooting. It’s a Leica lens, so generally, I get pretty good results. It’s not my most expensive camera or, in theory, my best camera … but when I don’t know what I’m going to be doing, that’s the camera I take with me because it’s by far the most versatile.
