    Default More HDR fun...

    Great sunrise this morning! Decided to get in some quick HDR practice as my daughter was getting ready for school.

    Here are the three exposures:




    And here's the tonemapped HDR image:


    The mistake I made was accidentally leaving the camera in a a high-ISO setting I'd previously used. I was in such a hurry to set up the tripod that I forgot to check it.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Here's one of my favorite pictures I've ever taken. Used my old Pentax Optio 430 for this one.

    I think it is a fantastic idea, with the one hesitation of:

    3) Participants have to submit a minimum of 24 of your best captures,
    Is that 24 images per "challenge"? That is a lot of frames (as in I don't know if I could make 24 interesting fames of something every week, but perhaps that is part of the challenge)! Or is it 24 gets you into the group?

    Also, I wonder if it might get more traffic here if we did perhaps a new "Photo challenge of the week / bi-week / month" thread for each challenge, or would that overload the board? But I do like the idea of the Flickr group. Perhaps a combo of the two, a Flickr group, but have the thread here where we can link the images to try and entice more entrants?

    I was thinking 24 per month and having the challenge change once a month. If you wanted to change things up more often than once a month, then fewer captures for shorter periods. I do think more frames might make things more challenging, though.

    Flickr would be good for hosting, and an invite-only group could be created there where we can all post images. The groups even come with a built-in bbs of sorts, so the challenge could be posted there as well as here. Best images could be put up here, linked from the flickr group so as not to completely wreck LGK's bandwidth.

    Sounds good. So what is first up? Here is a (very incomplete) list of things I think might be challenging / interesting:

    - Since it has been hot here for a while, HDR, although this isn't something that everyone has the software (Photoshop at least) to do, so it might not be a good one for the challenge.
    - Metal object
    - Glass
    - Fluid (liquid in a glass, puddle, water in a pot, smoke, air current)
    - Fabric
    - Product photo (like trying to shoot something for an advert)
    - Lit portrait (can be lit with just lamps if no flash available)
    - Available light portrait
    - Animal (maybe narrowed down to something like a bird? Most people have birds in their back yard, although the lenses needed might make this out of bounds)

    Again, cool idea Glenn!

    I like the ideas that I highlighted in your quote, Sam. I think that focusing on key-words or phrases that might get people's imaginations going and get them viewing the world with the photographer's eye would be a better way to do it rather than getting into particular methods or genres (like "lit portrait" or "product photography"). Though if individuals want to work on those techniques while taking pictures that fall under the challenge, that should certainly be acceptable.

    Some of the key-words I was thinking of:

    - Green (or some other color)
    - Showing emotion without having any people's faces in the image
    - Movement
    - Red, White, and Blue
    - Candid
    - Still life (though that might fall into "technique?")
    - Hands (as in go out and try and shoot pictures of people's hands doing interesting things)
    - Geometric shapes
    - Play/Sport
    - Old
    - Low
    - Reflections
    - Signs

    First we've got to get an idea of how many people are really interested. I think I'll create the Flickr group and then make a new thread here in the Tech Forum. Give me a day or so.

    Just another PNS'er here, but a big fan of this thread and I'd love to participate if possible (especially for the constructive criticism element...)

    Alright, it took me a lot less time than I thought to get the Flickr group set up. Now we just need to figure out exactly how many of us are interested in doing this.

    So far, I've got:

    Me,
    ValleyFan
    Watti
    BleedingPurple
    Unfiltered
    Blurker
    Deuce
    Deaderfan

    You all create a Flickr account and PM me the screen name. In the mean time, I'm going to PM some of the others in this thread to see if I can drum up anymore interest in this.

    If you've got a Flickr account set up already, search for the group LGK Photo Challenge and request an invite. If your screen name on flickr doesn't match your screen name on here, make sure you let me know who you are on LGK.

    I like the idea except the part about a community Flickr gallery. I think we should just have a thread here that is the topic of the month and everyone hosts their stuff wherever they want and post your best here or link to your gallery, wherever it may be.

    Also, instead of a limit of at least 24 pics how about a cap of at most 24 pics?
