We’ve had a few weeks of indoor challenges so it’s time to get outside! This week we’ll focus on trees. You can photograph a single tree or many trees, an entire tree or just parts of it, only trees or trees as part of a larger scene. The choice is yours. If you want to further challenge for yourself, consider adding another parameter to this challenge such as:
- A technique such as double exposure, long exposure, infrared or intentional camera movement (to name just a few)
- A unique perspective
- Limiting yourself to a particular focal length such as wide angle, 50mm, etc.
I encourage you to be creative. How might you photograph trees in a way that you haven’t tried before?
If you would like some inspiration, I encourage you to scroll through the results of this search I did for “fine art photography trees“. Also, this search on Flickr.
To recap this week’s challenge:
- Take a new photo that contains one or more trees. Don’t forget to think about composition, lighting, mood, etc. in your pursuit of finding tree(s) to photograph.
- Post your photo during the week of Sunday, Feb 17 and Saturday, Feb 23.
- Please remember to comment on at least FIVE photo submissions this week by answering the question “why?” in your comments. In other words, “why do I like (or not like) this photo?” or “why did this photo catch my eye?” Thank you!
The friendly community guidelines are pretty simple:
- Take a new photo for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
- Post your photo each week to our active communities on Facebook or Flickr (or both). Tag the photo: #2019photochallenge #photochallenge #tempusaura
- Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2019 Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge is fun and easy.
