52 Week Photography Challenge (Week 3)


And here is our third theme:

Week 3: CLOSE UP

In 2014 I will post a theme every Monday.  Your challenge is to photograph according to the theme.  Publishing one photograph per week based on the 52 per-determined themes on our Shoot Miami meetup page.  Every week will have it's own album.  Please note that you have 1 week to take a photo and to post it.  Photos posted after the 1 week deadline will be removed from the album (no exceptions).

Some of the themes are simple and some not so simple. The goal is to challenge yourself and to "think outside the box".  This allows you to be more creative and expand your view as a photographer.  Please feel free to post details about the photo (when and where you took it and other aspects like why you picked that shot and or what technique you used).

This is a challenge and submissions should be new work taken the week of the challenge.  Remember that there is a way for us to know when the photo was taken ;-)

One photo will be picked every week and the winners will be announced at our Main Meetups as well as online.  In February of 2015 we will be hosting a photography exhibit for all the winners to have a total of 52 photos ;-)

Please note that you can only post 1 photo per week so pick your best shot.


So try it, challenge yourself!

    Close-Up Or Macro?

    Close-up photography refers to taking pictures of objects at close distances, generally less than two feet. Macro photography is about taking pictures of objects at extremely close distances; the traditional definition says that this occurs when the object itself is the same size in real life as on film, so magnification is 1:1. Macro photography is technically a subset of close-up photography, and it’s often used to describe any extreme close-up work.

      Jesus, it says close up, not macro!

      Yuri is correct. It's close up. NOT MACRO.
