How we challenge ourselves in the group…
Our Digital Photography Group decides on themes to expand our knowledge of the use of cameras and Photo editing software such as Photoshop Elements or other programs to create the best results.
We have decided that this year we will set monthly challenges and extract one to three photos from each month starting in September to put in the 2022 Digital Photography Calendar.
We also have a long term challenge which we do all year, click here to see the results.
May 2021 – ‘Shadows’ & ‘Shoot from the Boot’
For May we chose two themes, Shadows, and Shoot from the Boot to use different techniques.
Shoot From the Boot
April 2021 – Rain showers and water in all its forms
Who would have thought when we chose the theme of rain showers and water this month, that it would be one of the driest and frostiest Aprils on record, so it was hard to get any photos of rain showers, but we persevered up till the last couple of days, even reverting to looking at water in other forms such as snow or hail, or stretches of water such as lakes and waterfalls.
March 2021 – Spring Has Sprung in Full Frame
This month we had a combined challenge, Spring has Sprung and using Full Frame, filling all the photo with beautiful spring flowers we have seen
January & February 2021 – Frost and Minimalism
For 2021 we have started off with two challenges, Frost and Minimalism, over the first two months of the year, this is because of the lockdown we haven’t been able to get out and about too much in the field.
