Welcome all to the "official" LGK Photo Challenge for the month of August.
The theme this month is going to be "Shape(s)". Basically, show us a photo of something with a shape. Any kind you like. Very simple and also wide-ranging. Maybe you want to use the arch of a bridge. Maybe the curve of a road. It's really up to you and there are no wrong answers here. Try and be creative and try new things. Don't be shy or afraid. The idea here is to share with other like-minded folks and maybe give them some ideas and/or help for the future. This challenge will go until the end of the month (Aug. 31st) and you should only use photos you've taken within that time frame.
At this point in time I don't have any thoughts about judging or voting, but if you guys want to do that, by all means we can. Mostly just try and have fun and give yourself an excuse to get out and do some shooting. So, here's what I'd like people to do. Keep in mind, this is all optional. Fill out as much or as little as you like.
Description: Give us a brief description of what the photograph is of. Where did you take it at? What time of day was it? What IS it? In some cases that might not be so obvious. Fell free to give location information as well for people who might want to go and see where/what you shot.
Technical Settings: How did you shoot the photograph? Was there any setup involved in it (lighting or something like that)? What sort of speeds and/or filters did you use? What sort of weather were you looking for/hoping for/ended up getting? Basically, anything you feel could help others understand what you did to get the shot.
Inspiration or any other information: Was there a reason you chose this angle or subject? Is this something you've shot before or a favorite of yours? Some place or thing you've thought about shooting before?
With all that being said, feel free to let others know about this too. Doesn't have to be confined to the 3-5 of us who "regularly" visit this sub-forum. Full-frame, P&S, iPhone, whatever. An interesting photo is an interesting photo. We all learned on something other than a fancy camera at first. So, there you all have it. An assignment for the month. Let's get to shooting!
