Long Shadows – 52 Week Photography Challenge 2022.

It’s the season of ‘Long Shadows’ in the UK – and this is an observational and creative challenge to inspire your next photo!

Hedon Viewfinders – 52 Week Photography Challenge 2022.

#viewfinderschallengeweek3

WEEK 3
LONG SHADOWS:
With the sun low in the sky (in the UK) then it’s the perfect time of year to observe the elongated shadows cast.

Your challenge is to photograph those unusual shadows. If taking your own shadow, then look for ways your cast shadow can interact with its environment.

No sun, or stuck indoors? No problem! Your torch or another light source can cast your long shadows!

This is one of those challenges that will improve your observational skills as well as inspire creativity.


EACH WEEK for 2022, we will introduce a new Challenge, Task or Idea to stimulate you into taking new photographs. It’s just for fun. We hope you join in each week. If you’ve had a go at one of the ideas before, then don’t miss it out; instead, try to approach the challenge in a new way.

52 Week Photography Challenge 2022

Forced perspective optical illusion – Hedon Viewfinders Photography Club.

Employ optical illusion to convince the viewer that something strange is happening!

FORCED PERSPECTIVE is a photography technique that makes an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is in relation to other things in the scene. It can be quite fun and employs optical illusion!

We are going to have a look at this fun technique at our meeting on Wednesday 19 January 2022.

Wednesday 19 January, 7pm at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH. All Welcome. Free, fun and friendly!

WEEK 2
FIND THE LINES:
Vertical lines, horizontal lines, diagonal lines, zigzag lines, and curved lines, etc, can all add interesting elements to your photographs. Your challenge this week is to find those interesting lines whether in nature or the human-made world.

‘Leading lines’ is an additional composition technique where lines in your image lead the viewer’s eyes around the photograph and into the main subjects.

Your challenge this week is to find those interesting lines to photograph and discover leading lines where you can!

WEEK 1
CREATIVE WITH PAPER:
What can you do with simple sheets of paper (or thin cards) as photo subjects? You can use white or coloured paper. By clipping sheets together you can create some wonderful curves. With window light and artificial light, you can create shadows and a wonderful contrast between light and dark. Do you keep your papers sharp with a narrow aperture, or creatively blur with a wider aperture? There are wonderful abstracts to create. What can you do with sheets of paper?
