July Challenge, 2009: The Daily Grind

It’s almost July, which means that it’s time for another bi-monthly photo challenge! In May, the challenge was to shoot one photo per day. Since so many of you are doing the 2009 Challenge as well, we will only be asking for 3 photos per week for the July Challenge.

The theme for the July Challenge is “The Daily Grind”. What do you do for work? What work do you see being done around you? This month, we will be shooting work.

Since we will be shooting only three photos each week for this challenge, you should have time to plan out what type of work you would like to shoot each week. You could pick a theme for each week, such as “My Work”, “Food Service Work”, “Construction Work”, etc. Or you could shoot whatever catches your eye during the week. There is a lot of flexibility in this theme, so you can use your imagination and have some fun!

Take a look at the few examples I’ve included for you to get started. Make sure to tag all your work correctly; “julychallenge2009″. You can add others, but that is the most important one. As you post your shots, be sure to add them to the photochallenge pool on Flickr. You can submit all three photos for the week on the same day if you wish, but keep in mind that the pool has a limit of four photos per day. If you want to see all the photos for this challenge that have been submitted to the pool, you can us this link: https://www.flickr.com/search/groups/?q=julychallenge2009&w=658128%40N22&m=pool

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
