Here's Gary's 2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE for WEEK 37: B&W – SHAPE

http://www.photochallenge.org/2016-photochallenge-week-37-bw-shape/
One of the key elements of black and white photography is SHAPE. Using shapes effectively leads to strong compositions that draw in the eye of the viewer. Our world is filled with shapes that humans have created like the great pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge, or the quilted patterns of farmland you see from planes. But nature also provides …

2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE WEEK 36: GROUND LEVEL PERSPECTIVE – GUEST POST

The challenge this week is to stretch your imagination and shift your perspective. Photographs from ground level offer a very different view of everyday scenes. Shooting from ground level is beautiful in nature photography, often giving plants and wildlife a prominent position in the frame.

2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 33: B&W – HUMAN BODY

http://www.photochallenge.org/2016-photochallenge-week-33-bw-human-body/
Sometimes the best photography subjects are right in front of us – something or someone you see everyday, but don’t think about as a subject. We see and interact with people everyday, but may not think of the human body as subject of our photography. The challenge this week is the Human Body shot in black …

2016 Photochallenge, Week 32: White on White – Guest Post

This is our Challenge for Week 32 starting Sunday the 7th PST (Pacific Standard Time)

http://www.photochallenge.org/2016-photochallenge-week-32-white-white-guest-post/
The first thing to understand about this challenge is that it is NOT a black and white assignment. Your subject should be white and your background should be white. This challenge is about texture, shadow, light and composition. About seeing form and shape, and about understanding that there are many, many shades of white. …

2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 29: B&W – CONTRAST
This week we’ll explore another key aspect of Black and White photography – Contrast. For this challenge you’re looking for shots with a dramatic difference between the lightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image. Many photos have contrast that ranges from black to white, but you are looking for shots …

2016 Challenge, WEEK 27 – PORTRAIT – Abastract

Abstract is open to interpretation. This challenge gives you the opportunity to get creative with your subject. You don’t need Photoshop or other software tools to take an abstract portrait. You just have to expand your definition of portrait and find ways to explore different techniques with framing and lighting.

http://www.photochallenge.org/2016-challenge-week-27-portrait-abastract/

The rules are pretty simple:

Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+, Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org or #photochallenge2016.

The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.

The posted image should be a photograph, not a video.

Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2016 PhotoChallenge is fun and easy.
Everyone who has picked up a camera has undoubtedly taken a picture of someone. Whether or not you call that a “portrait” depends on your definition of portraits. The portrait challenges have hopefully expanded on your idea of a portrait, and helped you learn some techniques for making great portraits. This week we’re going to …

2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 39: PORTRAITS IN NATURE

Our next portrait challenge starting Sunday September 25 PST

Gary and I are filling in for Trevor on the Portrait Challenges. Portraiture is far from my forte, and this one kept me up all night as I tried to come up with something new and unique in order to break the monotony of portraits. Being outdoors in the wilderness for the better part of my days, I figured Nature could be an intricate part of a portrait, not just a background, but a prop for your subject to immerse in.

http://www.photochallenge.org/2016-photochallenge-week-38-mirrored-water-reflections/
Water from puddles to the Oceans is an incredible medium in photography. Still water has the ability to produce stunning mirror-like reflections. I took the above image at the World Trade Center in Montreal. The double staircase harbors a statue of the Sea-Goddess, Amphitrite. In front, a large table slab of black marble with water evenly flowing …

2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 35: LIGHT PAINTING PORTRAITS

We're trying to post challenges a little early to help out everyone in different time zones. This challenge officially starts tomorrow morning (Sunday the 28th of August PST) so please don't post images before then. I hope you have fun with this one.

I'm back in civilization so I will be following the group more closely this week. We're also working hard throughout September to finalize the HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE :-)

http://www.photochallenge.org/2016-photochallenge-week-35-light-painting-portraits/
We’ve used traditional lighting techniques in previous portrait challenges. This time around I thought we could make things funky by using LIGHT PAINTING to enhance our portraiture. The above image is the simple and clean approach. One source of light for the subject and the light painting effect. Things can get crazier even with only …

http://www.photochallenge.org/2016-photochallenge-week-31-people-animals-portraits/
No matter where you live or where you find yourself, there’s always a tight and unique relationship formed between mankind and the animal kingdom. Sometimes the bond between two living creatures of two different species can be one at the heart of the greatest friendships. Although we often take pictures, sometimes portraits of our pets, …
