Congratulations to Geof, winner of the latest Canon EOS Photochains hero-chain challenge!
We asked Geof a few questions to see what inspired this picture and why he chose ‘rows’ as the new tag. See his answers below.
1) What inspired this shot?
While taking snaps of our sunflowers I concentrated on this macro shot. When I viewed it through the lens, the close up of the flower head seemed to take on a somewhat "wacky" view of looking down on a very colourful forest!!
2) Why did you choose 'rows' as the link?
As per the previous answer, rows of strange colourful trees.
3) How would you describe yourself as a photographer?
I regard myself as a keen, amateur photographer hoping to take (with a bit of luck) a good shot of everyday subjects. I try to keep an open mind & hopefully, while taking "everyday subjects", see a different perspective.
4) Anything else you want to share with the EOS community?
If you are stuck for ideas keep an eye on the Canon photo competitions such as Photochains, 1Wall, Photo 5, or even the Peoples Gallery. It is also a great idea to look at other peoples photos & subjects for inspiration.
Geof has won a fantastic prize consisting of an EOS 550D Single IS Lens Kit valued at RRP $1,499. He has chosen ‘rows’ as the new tag for the hero chain.
Visit the hero-chain now to submit your interpretation of 'rows'. You have until Thursday 2nd September.
Good luck Photochainers!
