Tuesday Photo Challenge - Forward

The Tuesday Photo Challenge is a weekly theme-based challenge for photographers of all kinds to share both new and old photography. This week's theme is forward.

I struggled with the challenge this week. When I could visualize the word "forward" I could not capture a photo. Some of the participants posted images of things in motion or the tracks left by moving things. I looked for ways to do that this week. The roads near my home are narrow one-lane-ditch-on-side country roads. There is no stopping to take a photo.

I had nothing in my catalogue similar to any of these. I shoot mostly architecture, landscape, and macros. I have some images I shot during a high school football game but I don't find them interesting. We only go to see our daughter perform in the marching band.

So what to do?

Post a randomly chosen image from the set of images of the marching band. I removed one of the field lights form the upper right-hand corner, applied a Fuji ACROS B&W filter, and used Nik's Dfine 2 to remove some high ISO noise.

Both of these images were shot on a Fuji X-T2 with the Fujinon 16-55mm f/2.8 XF R LM WR.

Fuji X-T2 + Fujinon XF16-55mm R LM WR @ 51.6mm , ISO 12800 , 1/400s , ƒ/5

UPDATE: After I posted this, I felt that an image of the marching band was more appropriate, so I added the band image as the feature image. I like the marching band photo better.

    I missed this on the first go-round. What a wonderful shot the band is, and football is good too.

    Great shots. Having been in a marching band, I naturally prefer that photo.

      The marching band may be the only reason my daughter still likes school. 🙂

      She's an excellent student but marching band is her passion.

      Thank you. I just wish I could have taken a new one instead of using the archives.

        I find that sometimes photo challenges bring new life and purpose to archived photos that would otherwise be forgotten.

          So true. It was only on Sunday while I was struggling to think of something to post for the challenge that it occured to me to use the football and marching band image.
