A couple of weeks ago, the challenge Anxiety was set. It strangely came at a time for me when I was and still am mid diagnosis of anxiety. That struggle for me has inspired the challenge this week: Courage. So whether you face your fears or show the moment of another facing their’s, it’s up to you! Inspire yourself and others :)

This week’s challenge will be in at noon on the 4th August.

Industrial macro

This week your challenge is to take a macro picture in an “industrial” style. Don’t worry if you don’t have a macro lens – in this context, macro just means close-up.

If you’re not sure what is meant by “industrial macro” – don’t worry, I don’t either! Have a look at some of these images on Google for inspiration.

Please send your photo in by noon on Tuesday 28th July. Good luck!

This week, your challenge is to take a photograph where the key element of the composition is in the background, not the foreground. This twists our usual understanding of photography and should be quite challenging!

There does have to be a foreground element too – but it should be clear that the background is the key to the image. Use selective focus, contrasting colours, leading lines or any other techniques you can think of to draw the eye to the key element in the background.

Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 21st July. Good luck!

Some of the most compelling photos are ones that make us uncomfortable to look at. This week, I want everyone to take a picture of a situation that makes them anxious, tense or uncomfortable. If you are fortunate enough to have no anxieties, then take a picture that is likely to make the viewer feel anxious, tense or uncomfortable. I’m aiming for mild unease here, rather than full-blown trauma and all the readers of this site having sleepless nights!

Let’s see how we get on. Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 14th July. Good luck!

Song lyrics – results

Phew what a hot night it’s turning out to be sat with a Macbook on your lap!

If everyone else was like me, this challenge was much harder than I originally anticipated so well done to everyone who entered this week.

Apologies in advance as my entry will no doubt give everyone an ear worm and you’ll be cursing me!    

I have found links to all the songs incase you want to have a listen  & bonus points for anyone who matches the songs to the photos WITHOUT looking at the answers!
