December Photo Challenge
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
Hello, friends! Before we get to the monthly challenge, I have a quick request. We’re fast approaching the new year, and I’d like to give you all the opportunity to suggest some article topics to be featured here on Beyond Megapixels. So, what kinds of articles would you like to see in the new year? Any specific product reviews, a technique you’ve been wanting to learn, suggestions for community challenges? Do you have an idea for a guest entry that you’d like to write for us? I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please feel free to leave suggestions in the comments, or drop me an e-mail. Thanks!
We’ve been doing these monthly photo challenges for an entire year now, can you believe it? In celebration of that fact, this month’s photo challenge is to revisit any and all of the prior challenges that you enjoyed, and post your new contributions to the Flickr group. Here’s a recap of past challenges:
January – Theme: “Beginnings”; Technique: “Bokeh”
February – Theme: “Motion”; Technique: “Long Exposure”
March – Theme: “Simplicity”; Technique: “Macro”
April – Theme: “Home”; Technique: “Still Life”
May – Theme: “Portrait”; Technique: “Black and White”
June – Theme: “City”; Technique: “HDR”
July – Theme: “Color”; Technique: “SOOC”
August – Theme and Technique: “Landscape”
September – Theme: “Angles”; Technique: “Black and White”
October – Theme: “Autumn”; Technique: “Flash”
November – Theme: “Open Subject”; Technique: “Soft Focus”
And a new for December: Theme: “Winter”; Technique: “Natural Light”.
As always, contributors can either combine the theme and the technique in a single photograph, or in individual photographs that demonstrate one or the other. Everyone is encouraged to post their results in the Beyond Megapixels Photo Pool on Flickr, or the Beyond Megapixels Facebook page. Ensure that you tag your photos with “December Photo Challenge”, and PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that if you wish your photograph to be featured in the mid-month contributor’s post, you will need to ensure your photographs are able to be downloaded from Flickr. Otherwise, I cannot obtain the code required to share your photo on the website. The Attribution-NoDerivs Creative Commons license, or the Attribution-ShareAlike license, gives the most protection to your photo, while still allowing it to be downloaded.
We also post a group discussion thread in the Flickr Group at the beginning of each month, for contributors to share their experiences about the challenge. Or, if you’d like, you can also post a link to your contribution in the comments of this article. Have fun, and we look forward to seeing your results!
