Whew.  What a week it has been!  I was the featured artist for an online magazine that some friends of mine run called The Kingdom Life Now (http://thekingdomlifenow.com/) and today officially rounds up the first month of #ThePhotoChallenge.  This months word was Abstract and I can't wait to see what my fellow Challengers have created!  Next months word will be revealed on Saturday.

Make sure that you plus me on your post Challengers!  That way I can collect your work and showcase them on my blog so that all can see.  If you still want to get involved with #ThePhotoChallenge , you most certainly may!  It is open at any point for any and all to join :)

The Photo Challenge

I had posted this last year but I don't think everyone got to see it, as is normal with web postings, so I am posting again :)

On February 1st, I am unveiling a new Photography challenge simply called, The Photo Challenge - as the title of this post suggests.  The idea is simple; each month on the 1st of the month I will give you a word starting with a letter of the alphabet.  You have until the last day of the month to go out and photograph whatever that word means to you.  I will, of course, be participating too :)

I have made a few adjustments to the rules I originally set out but it is basically still the same.

Rules:

1.)  You must GO OUT and photograph in the time allotted.  Old photographs are not to be used.  Granted, I will not be able to tell if it was a photograph you took a year ago so I am hoping everyone will stick to the honor code on this one.

2.) You may photograph, post-process and edit with ANY means that you decide proper.  The whole idea of this project is to create art and I believe every artist should use what tools helps them to create their own beautiful work.  Digital, film and composite work are all acceptable. 

3.)  When you submit your work, please put it in a special folder here on G+ and upload a high res image.  Tag me in the album and I will download your image to my computer and add it to the blog on my website - which is launching this week, yay!!!! - so that everyone can go to the blog and see all the work for that month from the submitting artists.  

4.)  When posting photos here, use #ThePhotoChallenge  for all posts and photos.  I hope that we may be able to get this trending one day :)

5.)  Last one, I promise :) I ask that you stick with this to the very end, regardless of whichever month you jump in on.  I predict that you will see a change and a focus to your art and for those who are still finding their Photographic voice, perhaps this will help you along.  I hope to see a maturity to my own work evolve and I am excited to see where this project goes.  This is a 26-month project and I am also excited to see what sort of community comes out of this.  

So that is it!  Word #1 will be revealed on February 1st.  Good luck everyone and I hope you will share this with your friends to get the word around.

Balance

I've been away for a while, apologies for that, but today marks the end of month #2 for #ThePhotoChallenge  !!!  Yay!  

This past months word was Balance and I will be revealing next months word tomorrow on the 1st.  That is how this whole challenge works; it is open to anyone who wants to join, at any time.  On the 1st of each month, I put out a word and you have until the last day of that month to go out and photograph what that word means to you.  

This was my image that I captured for Balance and you can read the whole story on my blog at kmccallumphotography.com.  The lovely +Rachel Weymouth agreed to be my model for this shoot and she could not have done a better job.  

I hope you enjoyed the photo and that you will consider joining my challenge :)
