June Photograph Challenge


I always look forward to new challenges, what ever they are. As we have been undertaking these photograph challenges for quite sometime now, I try and choose themes that are both fun but also stretch the imagination. I can honestly say that you all always come up with the goods, your photographs never stop amazing me. Your creativity, ingenuity and sometimes dexterity is quite awe-inspiring. I hope this month's theme provides you with a little fun too!

I am sat here, writing this post at the ridiculous time of 1am. At the same time I am wondering why I am not tucked in bed sound asleep!!! This moment of madness gave me the idea of photographing different times of the day. Therefore, the challenge will not be for one photograph, but will be five photographs (an odd number is always more aesthetically!). The theme title is "Moments in the day" and the challenge is to capture a set of photographs that represent the times of "Morning", "Lunctime", "Afternoon", "Evening" and "Night". Oh! I really can't wait to see what people come up with!!!!

Just to recap, the guidelines for the challenge are as follows:

1) Take a set of photographs that in some way, manner or form represents the theme of"Moments in the day". You are welcome to use your artistic touch to manipulate the photographs using a photopackage such as photoshop. Be as creative as you desire!!! You are even welcome to submit a video clip, if that is your preferred media.

2) Include a brief explanation of how the photograph(s) relate to the theme.

3) When you have posted your challenge, be sure to send me a link so that I can include it on my "The 'Moments in the day' Photography Challenge Entry" post early next month!

4) You want to join in with the challenge but don't have a blog or website to display your photograph on?

No problem, either:

a)Just email me copy of the image, along with your name and a brief description of how the photograph(s) relate to the theme. I will then include your entry on my "Moments in the day ~ Photography Challenge Entry" post early next month!!!

b)Join up to a photo storage site like Redbubble or upload your photograph, then leave a link to the photograph in the comments box on this post.

!!Happy Photography!!

That's it, I'm tackling this one next week so that I will submit on time!

By the way, I chocked on my Coke earlier this evening reading the comments on my blog... the story of some Englsih guy ordering a cheesecake and ending up with a nice steak with cheese - have you heard that one? :$

You always make me laugh! :D

Mmmm, time to put my thinking cap on or wait for a spontaneous moment. You’ll just have to wait until the end of the month to see what I come up with.

How I wish I have a proper camera to take great shots with. Although, I'm not much of a photographer, so I'll just wish good luck for those who are. Best of luck guys....this challenge sounds wonderfully fun. Great idea graham =)

Liss, that's not fair! You have me in suspense now...lolol! I am really looking forward to seeing your ideas :)

Thrice, I am overjoyed that you are joining in :D You have such a great imagination and I am sure you are going to come up with some amazing entries :)

Awww, MArjie. Have you got a camera on your phone? If you have, you should try with that. Remember, it is not the camera that makes a good photo, it is the photographer :)
