WEEK 21: May 2008 Challenge Flashback

WEEK 20: Happy Mother’s Day 2018

This year it came more clearly to my attention that not everyone for their own personal reasons welcome Mother’s Day. Since we’re taking TWO very different approaches to Mother’s Day here at the Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge, you’re going to have a choice as to which path you want to take. You can even take on both challenges and post TWO DIFFERENT IMAGES this WEEK. READ MORE →

A great image will always portray a part of you. READ MORE →

WEEK 50: Intentional Camera Movement – 2017 Trevor Carpenter Photochallenge

 Without getting into too much technical detail, I think Aaron Chang pretty much sums it up. Thanks to Instagram, square format images live on well into the digital age. READ MORE →
