Tourist (in your own town)

Inspired this week by being on holiday I remembered a challenge I did a while ago for another website.

I appreciate that most people won’t be on holiday this week so I’d like everyone to pretend instead  (unless you actually are!) and be a tourist in your own town/city – try and see your chosen location through the eyes of a tourist rather than a local.

Go on……have a 99 ice cream cone too ;)

Fruit – Results

Well done to our eight entrants this week who sent in their interpretations of a still life scene with fruit.

This is a rather classic photo assignment – to take a fruit-based still life photo. This might sound easy, but there’s quite a lot to creating a successful still life image, from choosing your subject matter and composition through to lighting. I picked out some links but there is a vast ocean of information out there :)

Your still life must contain fruit but can also contain other objects. Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 21st April. Have fun!

Sesame Street

This challenge is inspired by Sesame Street, in particular the bit where they say

Today’s episode of Sesame Street has been brought to you by the letters A and S, and the number 7.

I think it would be quite hard to specify letters and numbers and still have a meaningful challenge, but I want us to stick to the principle. Everyone should take a picture that was inspired by two letters and one number! You can choose the letters and the number and I would prefer it if these letters and numbers were found rather than created for this challenge.

Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 14th April. Good luck!

I came up with this weeks challenge after Katy asked what software was used to create the ‘two pictures in one’ for last weeks challenge.

Whilst I couldn’t use it this evening to put diptychs together for last weeks challenge, this website is very useful in making photo mosaics –  I first came across it on New Years Day when another challenge website I participate in set it as a topic for us to create one with our favourite 12 photos from last year (1 from each month).

This week I want everyone to tell a story through your photography and then showcase it by creating a mosaic.  The story can be of anything you want – a day out of your week, a photo a day, a day in the life of a teddy bear going on a picnic! Just be as creative as you feel like :)
