NOTE: You can start taking photos as soon as you sign up -- but wait until the start date of the challenge to post your images to the album.
At this time of year, Trees really make themselves known. It's the height of their time of year - plumage at their fullest, they seem to project themselves with personality as they reach toward their source of sustenance, their mysterious roots beneath the earth absorbing nutrients out of sight.
Our challenge this time is to shoot some really great trees that we come in contact with. Using one of the themes provided (or one of your own), give a sense of a personality or trait that your "tree subject" may be portraying.
To join in, sign up anytime between now and the start time of 7am on Wednesday, August 28th.
As with previous challenges, if you RSVP to attend this event, you are making a personal commitment to take at least ONE photo according to your interpretation of a theme, and post at least ONE image in the Designated Album for this challenge.
By signing up you commit to take at least ONE photo representing your choice of the themes provided - or make up your own themes if you like.
You may take as many photos as you like (in your camera), but post a maximum of 5 images only. Here are some themes to get you started:
TREES WITH PERSONALITY
HOW IT WORKS
To participate, you must sign up before the start date of this challenge. For this challenge, you can start taking photos as soon as you sign up - but wait until the start date of the challenge before posting to the Album.
Your own personal challenge starts when you RSVP to join us on the challenge. You commit to taking at least ONE photo, based on your interpretation of your choice of themes.
You must post at least ONE image to the Designated Photo Album for this Challenge, and you MUST use the Caption to name a theme which inspired your image.
NOTE: any image posted to the album for this challenge that doesn't include an appropriate Caption will be automatically moved to the Members' Monthly Miscellaneous album without notice.
No other photos are allowed. Your photos must be taken with your camera between the date you signed up and end dates of this challenge. If you cannot post your images between the start and end date of the challenge, you can post later; there is no time limit for posting your images to the Album once the challenge begins.
Use of all of your cameras are welcome, such as SLR, phone, toy, and point & shoots. Computer post-processing techniques (crop, colour correction, etc.) are allowed. To make it more challenging, we encourage use of "in-camera" settings and framing and minimal computer post-processing.
All group members are encouraged to enjoy the photos that are posted by the participants of this challenge and add comments of encouragement and appreciation.
REMEMBER: we will NOT meet in person because this is a VIRTUAL challenge. There will be no judging and no prizes. If you sign up for the challenge, you are making a personal agreement with yourself to take photos and then post your best photos as laid out in the instructions.
Note: If you miss the start date and cannot RSVP, then you must wait for the next challenge... :)
