Me and my camera

Firstly, need to say a big thank you to Jonathan for trusting me to take the reins this week – I am very much looking forward to helping with the admin and coming up with new ways to inspire us all!  If anyone has any photo challenges (or techniques) they would like to explore don’t hesitate to let Jonathan or me know :)

The idea for this weeks challenge came to me as we have so many new people participating in the recent weeks that I thought it might be good to get to know a little bit about each other through our kit!

All you need to do is include you and your camera!

Below are some of my favourites from flickr for inspiration……..

Carole Stevens

This week I am delighted to welcome Carole to the Photo Challenge admin team!

Carole has been entering the Photo Challenge regularly since 2012 and has decided to step up and start publishing challenges and results too. This is good news for everyone – I get an extra pair of hands and everyone benefits from fresh inspiration and perspective! :D

Everyone on their best behaviour this week as Carole takes the reins! :P

This week we move away from the physical theme of wood, towards the conceptual theme of greed. This one was suggested ages ago by Joe, whom we haven’t seen for ages.

The two most common manifestations of greed are for money and for food, but the people here are so creative that I’m sure we’ll see many more ideas by Tuesday.

Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 4th March and I’ll do my utmost to have the results ready on the same day – fire, flood, IT managers and pantomimes notwithstanding ;)

Wood – Results

February 25, 2015 by Jonathan | 12 Comments

Hi folks – so sorry for publishing a day late. It’s the usual situation of being too busy at work, with a side helping of doing the sound for a pantomime, and being in rehearsals in the evenings.

Thanks to everyone who sent in an entry even though I didn’t :( Once again the standard is really high and there are some amazing photos.

Please also welcome Jakomie, who joins us from the Democratic Republic of Congo. I’ve updated the map on the say hello page to add the DRC and a few other places that people had mentioned recently. It seems we’re a truly international bunch. If you want your city on the map, let me know!

This week, the challenge was suggested by Rob. He said we should take an interesting photo of something wooden.

This seems quite self-explanatory so I won’t add any more! Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 24th February. Good luck!

Old & New – Results

February 17, 2015 by Jonathan | 7 Comments

It’s been another bumper week with 17 entries! Please give a warm welcome to this week’s new starters: Rose, Jane, Nick and Cristina :D If you haven’t done so already, please have a look at our usual rules and introduce yourself.

Andrea, I noticed your entry was taken in 2013. The usual rules say the photo must be taken during the week of the challenge. This week I’m so happy with all the entries I’ll let you off, but normally we don’t accept old photos :)

Old & New

This week’s theme is one we’ve done before, but it was a while ago and I think it would be fun to do it again.

The theme is old & new, and it’s pretty self-explanatory. Basically you have to take a picture that incorporates something old, and something new. These can be physical objects, people, concepts or ideas.

Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 17th February. Good luck!

Musical instruments – Results

February 10, 2015 by Jonathan | 9 Comments

Wow, what a response we’ve had this week! Not only are there 18 entries, we’ve also had several new people enter and a load of likes on the Facebook page! :D

Welcome to everyone who has joined this week – we hope you have fun here. If you haven’t done so already, please introduce yourself and have a quick look at the usual rules. Don’t worry, there’s nothing scary but it does say that your entry has to be taken during the week of the challenge. One or two of the entries this week were older pictures but I’ll turn a blind eye this week!

So here are this week’s entries. There’s a really fantastic selection, so for best effect click on the pictures to see the larger version and move through them with the arrow keys. When you’re done enjoying the photography, leave a comment to say which entries you like and why, and say a few words about your own work too. I bet lots of these musical instruments have a back story.

Musical instruments

This week’s challenge is to take a picture of a musical instrument. Many instruments are works of art in themselves, and there are lots of opportunities for beautiful photos.

If you don’t have a musical instrument then you can loosen the scope of the challenge and take some music-related picture instead.

Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 10th February. Have fun!
