Concepts of Photography: Shapes

  • Nov 29, 2013 · 3:30 PM

The fifth in our series of concept photowalks examining the elements of design will be about shapes. A shape is a two-dimensional area that stands out from the area next to or around it. This can be because of some kind of boundary, such as a line, or because of a difference in color or texture. Simple shapes are easier to understand or remember than complex ones. Silhouettes can be a great way to show shapes. To learn more about shapes, click here.

We will meet just inside Gate 1 of Creekside Park. There will be plenty of free parking. Coming by metro? Expect to walk 15 minutes from the Healthcare City Station. If you need help finding us, call the EPyC hotline on 052 9288432.

When you are finished, upload your best work here for critique; post images of different subjects to make your work interesting to others. Please only post images where shapes are a prominent part of the picture.

We strongly encourage each of you to critique other people's work by first telling us what you like about it, and then what you think could be improved. (Or as one member put it, "a kiss and a slap.") Remember, critiques are meant to help us improve our skills, so please try to make sure your comments on pictures are meaningful, and don't take any criticisms personally.

Before we set out, your hosts will say a few words, and then you will be free to wander around, either by yourself with them. The sun will set at 5:28 PM, so if you want to keep shooting as the light fades, consider carrying a tripod.

      I don't think there is any problem with the meetup page... have you tried to browse the photos from another device?

    Hello Nitin, This is what I am saying. I did not enter the park. I was parked on the opposite side, very very far from the park. There was some government building next to me.

    Went round in circles. This is it. No more photo walk meetups, for me, in overcrowded public places. Maybe I will only attend those held on outside Dubai or on its outskirts.
