Wonderful job everyone on the Creative Long Exposure. There are some very creative shots in there. You’ve got just under two weeks left to get really crazy. Since August was exhausting and September is challenging, I thought I would take it easier on you guys for October. The next challenge will begin on October 1st, so watch for the new word/subject.
For you veteran challengers, you are familiar with the guidelines. But just in case you want to refresh your memory and for all new challengers, here is a review.
For all of you who want to have a little fun with photography, we are going to have a monthly photo challenge. Each month there will be a new word or topic to photograph. How you interpret that word or topic is up to you. The guidelines are very simple. They are:
A new album will be opened on the first of each month. The opening picture will be your word or topic for the month. Posting can start once the word is revealed and you’ve taken a picture you want to share with everyone.
Pictures must be taken during the month of the challenge. No going back and finding an old photo that you think is perfect for the challenge. It defeats the purpose of this challenge which is to get you out there shooting new stuff and having fun.
Please remember that you are not the only one submitting photos so please edit down your own work and submit no more than ten pictures per month. This allows for plenty of interpretation of the work without overwhelming the viewers.
Post processing is allowed, in fact, it is recommended. You want your pictures looking the best that they can, so go to town.
There are no official judges. You are all the judges when you view each other’s work. Please remember to be considerate when commenting on someone’s photo. Constructive criticism is usually welcome but rudeness is not.
And the most important rule…HAVE FUN.
These challenges are being set up to help challenge you in the way you view the world. Be creative, be inventive. Try new techniques. Try new software. Just have fun. So watch for the album on October 1st.
