At our pub night in October, we had a pretty enthusiastic discussion about creating a virtual challenge focused on processed photos... and all the possibilities.
The idea is to create artistic images from your own photos.
This challenge is intended to learn and practice using a variety of processes to create interesting images with the pictures we take -- and inform and inspire each other. It's a great opportunity to try out some things you've never tried before with encouragement from others in the group.
For this challenge, the following applications, or combination, can be used to alter your photos:
1) in-camera settings
2) smart phone & tablet (eg, iPad) apps
3) computer applications (from free to professional)
For this challenge ALL photos you choose to alter must be taken in your camera between the date you sign up and December 8th... AND all post-processing work must be performed by December 8th. No archived images are allowed.
You can post up to 25 of your best processed images to the Designated Album for this challenge.
NOTE: if you want to show the before and after images, then make sure you upload them as a pair and post links to each other in comments. Only the processed image counts as one of the 25 allowed (the original doesn't count). Thanks.
Photos for this challenge must be taken in your camera between the date you sign up and December 8, 2013, and all post processing on your photos must be done before December 8th. No archived images are allowed.
No more than 25 images per member are to be posted to the album for this challenge.
Members are encouraged to discuss their original photos and camera settings, and the chosen post-processing application and key settings, in the Caption for the image posted.
As well, all members are encouraged to discuss and help each other with post-processing questions, ideas and explanations of applications and settings, using comments on this event and on individual photos.
Use of all of your cameras are welcome, such as SLR, phone, toy, and point & shoots.
PLEASE NOTE: Any photos posted to the Album for this challenge that do not adhere to the instructions will be moved to the Monthly album without notice.
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.
