Subject: SHADOWS
Focus on: FLOWING
Style: NIGHT-LIT
Optional Challenge: Shutter speed - Focus on the shutter speed setting when shooting




This week's challenge will use SHADOWS as the subject matter, with a focus on the concept of FLOWING in a NIGHT-LIT style.




The optional challenge is: Shutter speed - Focus on the shutter speed setting when shooting

All images you take must emphasise the shutter speed. Take 2-3 shots of the same subject that 'show off' the difference that shutter speed makes. Finally, capture both a fast and a slow moving object with both a long and short shutter speed.

Using your Camera's Shutter-Priority Mode (usually marked 'Tv' or 'F') is advisable

(The purpose of this is to reinforce practical understanding of the shutter speed corner of the exposure triangle.)

Subject: DROPLETS
Focus on: INORGANIC SHAPES
Style: VINTAGE
Optional Challenge: Maximum of 30-shots - Take a MAXIMUM of 30-shots




This week's challenge will use DROPLETS as the subject matter, with a focus on the concept of INORGANIC SHAPES in a VINTAGE style.




The optional challenge is: Maximum of 30-shots - Take a MAXIMUM of 30-shots

Let us harken back to the days of film: you have only 30 shots to spend on your journey... use them wisely!

(The purpose of this is to encourage photographers to plan and treasure every shot, and to use their resources sparingly)





Got the week off! Hopefully going to get this week and last week's challenges done! No idea hwt I'm doing for this weeks challenge, but for last week, I want to try going out at night with my diving torch and shining it at a river while taking a long exposure. Being a diving torch, I can submerge it with no problems, but I also want to play around with a polarising filter and also see what the reflections are like in a long exposure when the background isn't illuminated (just first order reflections and scattered light).

...So if I dissapear during the course of last week's challenge, it's because I got mugged and thrown in the river. Pretty rude of them.

Sorry for the missed week! I've been decorating and not had access to my computer

I'll pre-gen a bunch of challenges so I can draw from them as-needed in future

Focus on: THE OTHER
Style: COMMANDING
Optional Challenge: Polarising Filter - Emphasise the use of a polarising filter




This week's challenge will use WHATEVER THAT IS as the subject matter, with a focus on the concept of THE OTHER in a COMMANDING style.




The optional challenge is: Polarising Filter - Emphasise the use of a polarising filter

All shots you take must make use of a polarising filter (CPL or otherwise). Either:

Judging:


Subject: GLORY
Focus on: EPHEMERALITY
Style: DULL
Optional Challenge: Single Lens - Do not change lenses: choose one and use it for the day!




This week's challenge will use GLORY as the subject matter, with a focus on the concept of EPHEMERALITY in a DULL style.




The optional challenge is: Single Lens - Do not change lenses: choose one and use it for the day!

Use only a single lens for the duration of your journey; choose beforehand and don't take any spare with you!

For bonus points, make it a prime lens!

(The purpose of this is to encourage photographers to become intimately familiar with their lenses - and to practice footwork rather than merely zooming in (or out) of their subject)

I have been out of "real" photography for too long now, but I think/hope that the joy might be returning ever so slowly

In the meantime I will cheat once again and post something from the past



A glorious sunset, I'd say, and they are all rather short lived. I can assure you that the photographer is rather dull and so is his style most of the time!
