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 →

WEEK 19: B&W – Water

Long exposures of running water can add a sense of motion to our images. Yes, majestic waterfalls make for beautiful images, but small streams are often easier to find and beautiful in their own way. You might need to search a little harder for a good composition, but the concept is the same. Use a tripod and experiment with different shutter speeds to figure out how blurred you want the water to be. READ MORE →

Week 18: Abstract Macro

This week, I want everyone to take a macro shot that highlights the curves, patterns, colors, and shapes within your subject. You should try to get close enough to at least partially obscure what the subject actually is. Ideally, your photograph should capture the viewer’s attention, while they try to figure out what they’re seeing. READ MORE →

Week 11: OUT OF PLACE – 2018 Trevor Carpenter Photochallenge

We can all agree that trash and litter doesn’t have its place on our streets or in nature. The possibilities are endless, they will depend on your interpretation of the theme and your lifestyle. I’m an outdoor individual who loves nature, therefore my examples are nature-related but in no way shape or form should you feel that my priorities should reflect your priorities when it comes to this challenge. A great image will always portray a part of you. READ MORE →

WEEK 47: Left to the Imagination – 2017 TREVOR CARPENTER PHOTOCHALLENGE

For this week’s challenge, the goal is to take a photo where the viewer’s imagination fills in the blanks. How you do that is completely up to you– Obscure part of the image; make the viewer wonder about something; leave part open to interpretation; or leave something out entirely. As always, I encourage creativity, or any out of the box ideas you may have. Get your camera, be creative, and enjoy! READ MORE →
