Monthly Flickr Photography Challenge – August 2014 – ANIMALS

Have you ever set yourself a specific project or challenge to improve your photography? If not, let me tell you that not only is it an excellent way of developing a specific skill, but it also encourages you to learn about a genre in which you may have had very little interest.

Since we as artists all enjoy exercising our creative abilities and sharing our imagery with a wider audience, Mathieu and I at Mirrorlessons in association with Tyson Robichaud Photography Blog have decided to embark on a monthly Flickr photography challenge, and we invite all of you to join us for the ride!

Each month there will be a theme posted in a Theme Thread on our respective Flickr pages. In the thread, participants will be invited to share the photo (medium sized) they’ve created for the challenge along with the gear used, setups, lighting and settings so that we may learn new techniques from each other through this collaborative process.

At the end of the month, Tyson, Mathieu and I will each pick our favourite entry (three images in total), post them on our respective blogs, and open them up for a vote in the comments section. The winner will be invited to choose the theme for the next round.

Last month’s winner Graham Gibson has chosen the theme “ANIMALS” for the month of August.

I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who doesn’t enjoy photographing animals, be they wild or your average household pet, so I think we’ll see lots of submissions this time around, hopefully with a creative spin on them!

Keep in mind that upon the completion of this month’s challenge, we and Tyson will be posting the six images that won in between March and August, and holding a final vote. The winner will receive a little prize in the post! :-)

So, what are you waiting for? Start posting some great images of our animal friends…it may just be a winner!
