February Photo Challenge

Written by:

Each month we feature a month-long “challenge”: one photographic “theme” in which participants are encouraged to take photos of a certain subject, and one “technical challenge” in which participants will use a certain photography technique. Readers are encouraged to post their results in the Beyond Megapixels Photo Pool on Flickr.

This month’s theme is “motion”. You may interpret “motion” in any way you like, by photographing something in motion, or by photographing while you yourself are in motion. Some synonyms to help give you some ideas would be act, advance, change, direction, drift, flow, fluctuation, gesture, kinetics, mobility, passage, progress, sign, signal, stir, stream, sway, travel, or wave.

This month’s technical challenge is “long exposure”. Readers are encouraged to experiment with this photography technique, which we talked about a bit back in this article from last September.

To post your submissions in the Beyond Megapixels Flickr Group Pool, go to this link. Only members can post to the pool, but it’s a very simple and FREE process (you must have a Flickr account, which is also simple and free). Simply click on the “Join This Group” link (as illustrated in the screen shot below) and follow the prompts to join the pool.

Please tag each contribution with “February Photo Challenge”.

If you’d like, you can also post a link to your contribution in the comments. Have fun, and we look forward to seeing your results!
