Community Photo Challenge-Our Personal Challenge

Personal Challenge

Our Personal Challenge

Michael Staley said it perfectly....."There is no challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself"

This next challenge will be ANYTHING that you want it to be, but it must be something new to you. I have decided to work on a few different types of photography this summer. I am concentrating on HDR & digital Infrared photography. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. You use bracketing on your camera & Photomatix to transform your images into HDR. Visit Trey Ratcliff @ Stuck In Customs & scroll down to his video at Google.

Infrared Photography has always been an interest for me since the late 1970s, but now with digital, it is done a lot differently...
These are my personal challenges.... What are yours??

With the summer approaching & a low participation anticipated.....we will make this a 2 1/2 month challenge. You have 2 1/2 months to challenge yourself.....& post here. On your blog, post as many images as you want with an explanation of your goal, & what you've accomplished. You can go into detail, if you want. When you post here, it can only be of one image.

Your challenge could be very simple, does not have to be difficult. If your new to photography you can concentrate on "composition", or "Black & White Photography" OR even RAW images
The idea it to select something that you will learn from. has many tutorials. Google anything that you might want to improve on & see what comes up.

Here are some suggestions.....Macro, Bokeh, Color, Black & White, Infrared, HDR, Composition, Textures, Portraits, Still Lifes, Nature, Underwater photography, Night photography, RAW images.....the list is endless. Just select something that is new to you.
Have fun!!! Ü

I decided not to wait until the last possible minute (as I usually do) to join in this challenge. I've been playing with the information I learned as outlined in my post...using Camera Raw 6 to process my images. What people might not realize is that Camera Raw is equivalent to the Lightroom Develop Module and that improvements to one or the other of these programs ends up being included in the next release of the, as a photoshop user (with the newest version), I have the same capabilities of Lightroom, without having to buy 2 programs.
