Reclaim

This week’s challenge is exploring reclamation: retrieve or recover (something previously lost, given, or paid), or to bring something or somewhere under cultivation.
You could go for nature’s reclamation, or reclaiming and using old photography equipment or techniques… it’s up to you!
Entries in by noon next Wednesday 14th September!🙂

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.

Entries to be in by 12:00 noon on Wednesday 10th August.

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.
