PROJECT 52-8-28-PEOPLE- Social gatherings
Posted By: noelcmn, 07-11-2016, 01:11 AM

Welcome to Project 52-8 for the year 2016. We move onto the exciting subject of people, a favorite with many a photographer.. For this week, the challenge is social gatherings, and suitably broad enough. Churches, political, or just plain family gatherings. Picnics in the park, sporting events or a factory of workers are all possibilities. This is a new challenge for Project 52. Remember 2 is company, 3 a crowd. Lets see what we come up with.

Images for Project 52-8-28 are to be taken between Monday 11th July 2016 through to Sunday 17th July 2016. Closing times is midnight in your time Zone

1. Anyone and everyone interested in the challenge is eligible. The goal continues to be to have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques
with fellow Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore. The theme/sub-concepts are chosen by the facilitator every week. You are only
required to submit a photo taken during the week of the challenge, and in keeping with the theme/sub-concept and be willing to be the judge if you win.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-8 thread for the week. Explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed. Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot,
Medium Format, et cetera. And we will include images taken with phones as well.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is active to be eligible for judging. It is up to the discretion of the current week's
Judge to accept or decline early/late entries i.e. a day earlier or a day late. Usually there is some flexibility here to allow as many entrants as possible. BUT
8. Additional images are welcome, but please keep them to a minimum. If more than one image is posted, make sure you identify your entry for the challenge.
Additional images should also please comply with rule 1 and rule 7.
9. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.
10. The WINNER of each weekly challenge is the JUDGE of the next weeks Project 52-8 and may not participate in the challenge.
11. The host/facilitator (in this case noelcmn) may participate in the challenge, provided he/she is not the judge.

Happy clicking.

I'm afraid that this is the best I could do this week, and had to use my point-and-shoot camera.

Gathered But Not Social Canon PowerShot A1400, 1/160s, f2.8, ISO 100, handheld.

Just returned from the 5 nights/6 day camp with out youth, I should have loads of images of them, covering the different educational exercises that they had to do. I'll go with this one- the 2nd hike we did along a river. This is more or less at the start.
