Top 10 WeeklyFstops: Music

Top 10 WeeklyFstops: Music

This week's theme called for "music" and the results were great as usual. There is a lot of diversity on all of our WeeklyFstop lists and this one is no exception. One featured photographer almost had to be disqualified after turning in multiple entries. Luckily they both rocked and the show went on! 

In a way our list this week is like music for the eyes. I don't know what is on your playlist, but I'm all over the new Beck album. If there are any good bands I should be checking out while editing, let me know in the comments. I trust your opinion based on two good qualities I already know, you're a photographer and a Fstoppers reader.

Honorable Mentions:

Eneko Saratxaga Zorrilla


Greg Rutland

Vitor Munhoz

Alan Godfrey

Lane Weinberg

So Lane's number three selection above almost had to be disallowed due to the old "one entry per week" rule. Luckily the rules committee not lacking taste, enjoyed the French Horn photo below and chose to look the other way.


Fuji Traveller  

Great universal shot here. The blasted out stage has a ton of energy and could be anyone.


Chris Ward Photography

The potential energy of that piano sitting in the vast empty hall is perfect. I really like the lighting and overall feel in the photo. The symmetry and composition achieved from the photographer's point of view are stunning.

Be sure to check out all the entries here: #weeklyFstop on Instagram A big thanks to everyone for joining in. As always, my opinion is subjective, so if you think I missed some good ones feel free to share them in the comments.

What is This Week's Theme?

Unless you are into pitch black photography, part of every photo you capture is light. Light makes a shot. The better you get at working with the light you have, or the light you add, the more control you will have in your photography. So with that, this week's theme is:


The hashtag to use is #weeklyFstop. If you are tagging an old shot that is fine, but please try and keep it to one shot picked for the theme per week.

Here are the previous week's results for anyone who may have missed:

  1. Leading Lines
  2. Bold
  3. Color
  4. Yours
  5. Simplicity
  6. Monochrome

Remember, there is no guarantee posting a photo will result in it being featured. If we get going and you fall short, keep shooting and try and learn from the photos that are selected. We can all learn to like our work a little less sometimes in order to grow. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas feel free to contribute in the comments.

Before you run off to get your next #weeklyFstop submission ready, are you all aware of the ongoing Fstoppers Photographer of the Month contest leading up to the Fstoppers Community Photographer of the Year? Alex Cooke covers how to be selected at the bottom of the above post.

Speaking of the Fstoppers community are you part of it? Did you know you can have your own portfolio here with chances to be featured on the homepage as Photo of the Day? If not be sure to check it out. If you already comment then you have an account.
