Yes, you did read correct - a new photography challenge is about to be born!
4 Ways Photography Challenge is a creative photography meme, which I'll be co-hosting together with my friends Diana from the Studio 56, Liz from Belles Belongings and Margie from Nihao, Cupcake!. We met one another via Art of Composition online photography course. You might remember that we held a mini-blog hop a month ago, to cherish the good time we had in the class - learning of composition and photography, shooting a whole lot of pictures and sharing them with one another.
We've been talking about finding a way to keep the flame alive, that was awakened during the photography course. Our wish is to keep on taking pictures of new themes, looking at the world around us with curiosity - seing things in our everyday environment in a new light.
The fruit of this wish is "4 Ways Photography Challenge", which will be launched this Thursday.
4 Ways Photography Challenge is a monthly creative meme, where we wish to challenge you and one another in finding 4 ways of photographing the monthly theme, which in April is
Self Portraits in 4 Ways
4 Ways Photography Challenge is open to everyone!
No experience is needed, every sort of camera is usable - both cell phones and iPhones have good quality cameras today. I wouldn't know how to take pictures with an SLR-camera, since I'm used to take photos with my little and handy Canon IXUS point & shoot camera and iPhone. (An SLR is on my wish list ... I hope to get one and learn to use it one day :)
If you wish to sharpen your photos or adjust the light or saturation, there's plenty of free programs to do it with, I use PicMonkey and Pixrl - I've heard that Photobucket and Picasa are also easy to use.
The theme self portraits arose from our inexperience - self portraits was actually the assignment, which I found as the most difficult one ... I still don't think it's easy. Therefore - more pictures, more practice, more experience ...
The themes will change from month to month, we'll let you know on Thirsday the themes for May to August.
The afternoon sun made such a nice reflection on the red onion ... it caught my eyes and I caught my camera, taking 4 different pictures of it
- this is my pre- 4 Ways Photography Challenge :)
A warm welcome to my new blog friends Anne and Kelekia!
I hope to see many of you on Thurdsay!
PS: We've decided that 4 is the maximum amount of views / photos - not a minimum - so you're more than welcome to join also with one self portrait
