Baking

Inspired this week by the Great British Bake Off which started tonight in the UK.

When taking photographs of food there is a real emphasis on composition & styling.

Three other important things to consider with food styling:

  • Embrace natural light
  • Get up close
  • Accessorise/styling

Entries to be in by 12:00 Noon on 31 August 2016.

Have a lovely week🙂

 

Achievement

 

I remember 4 years ago Jonathan setting a challenge with an Olympic theme – it therefore only feels right that we should do the same this time round.

Rather than suggest sport as the theme I have decided on the challenge of ‘achievement’.  Although, bonus points go to those with some sport captured!

Have a great week, as always.

Entries should be in by 12:00 Noon on Wednesday 17th Auagust 2016.

Be bold

The problem with photography in summer is that by 08:00 the sun (when it decides to show an appearance) can often be quite high in the sky.  This leads to harsh and intense sunlight with shadows far and few in-between!

This type of light however is quite good for graphic photography – Buildings or bridges for example.  Typically manmade structures on a natural background.

This week try and experiment with different viewpoints to what you normally would. Shooting wide may also benefit your shots this week.

Happy shooting!

Books

After tomorrow I am lucky enough to have two weeks off work in between finishing at one job and starting at another. I am hoping to spend much of the two weeks (besides enjoying every second being a mummy to a toddler) doing much of my two favourite things – taking photos and reading.

This weeks theme is therefore inspired by another group I take part in – Poppy Loves Book Club

Photos for this challenge could be literally of a book/bookcase or a shot inspired by a book you have read (or want to read!)

Please submit entries to be in by 12:00 Noon Wednesday 3rd August 2016.

Hope you all have a great week.

Go see go do

Hi guys!

This week’s challenge is to take a photo of something or somewhere you’ve planned to see, go to or do for a long time, but haven’t had the opportunity to! This could be a long lost hobby, a favourite place or even something you don’t get much time to do (even Pokemon Go if you’re so inclined🙂 )

All entries in by noon next Wednesday 27th July!🙂
