[SI] Mandate - Filtration

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Simon Wellington, Dec 5, 2004.

  1. Hi folks. I posted the mandate on Friday evening, as per the schedule,
    but for some reason it did not propagate. Here goes, again;


    Filtration ... Time to get creative! You must use a filter of some
    sort, over the lens, to achieve an effect that could not have been
    achieved without using a filter. Commercially sold, traditional filters
    would be great, but if you don't have any you can make your own filter
    (examples might include a 'pinhole' covering of the lens with paper,
    drastic vignetting filter).


    (I will also e-mail the mandate directly to Al Denelsbeck, to be sure
    that it gets posted this time, one way or another.)

  2. Here is the link to the challenge page ...


    Alan Browne is correct. The mandate calls for the use of one or more
    analog filters, used at the point of capture, to achieve the desired
    effect. Standard SI rules apply; nothing has been waived. This is an
    exercise in photography ... not in software manipulation. :)


    You are not required to use an SLR, or even a store-bought filter.
    There is no requirement that the filter needs to mount onto the lens.
    Use your imagination. :)
