Looking forward to 2019, we are announcing some changes that we plan to make to the weekly challenges:
For the last few years, the challenge write-ups have evolved to the point that they take a significant amount of time and effort to write. While we admins all love creating new, fun challenges for the group each week, the amount of effort needed to create the “long form” write-ups means that we’re spending lots of time behind a keyboard, and not as much time behind a camera.
As such, we are planning to simplify the challenge write-ups each week. The photo challenges themselves won’t change much— they will still be the same types of topics and challenges that we’ve had for the past several years. However, the write-ups themselves are expected to be much shorter— likely a title, plus a sentence or two describing the general goal(s) and themes of the challenge. Our hope is that this will open the door for more creativity, learning, and fun with the weekly challenges by relaxing the “rules” a little bit.
We’re open to any thoughts, comments, or suggestions that you might have. This is a fantastic group of photographers, and we want to do our best to keep it going strong. As always, you can participate in the Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge by posting your photos to our groups on Facebook and/or Flickr. We hope to see you there!
