Task 39: Create your own rainbow colours…

Task 39 Create a rainbow… from a CD/DVD.

Simply hold up a CD/DVD into any light (window, torch, lamp, etc). Capture a photo of the rainbow effect. Once you have got the basics – how creative can you be, how else might you affect that light and reflection you see?

This challenge is similar to the ones that we are going to set for people tonight live at our Facebook meeting. Do apply to join our page and take part!

Why use the #hashtags? The hashtag is widely used in social media and creates a hyperlink so that all those using the same one can share content. So for example on Facebook, if you click the #viewfinders one, you’ll see content from other public sources, friends, etc.

—————-

Don’t forget! It’s LIVE CHALLENGES NIGHT on Facebook at 7pm on Wednesday 29 April. Just be ready to join in from 7pm at Hedon Viewfinders – Through the Lens (Members).

Three challenges. We’ll offer prints of the photos of the ‘winning’ images posted on Facebook.

Regulars can still join on Zoom from 6:30pm and watch the challenges go live on Facebook at 7pm – but the challenge photos must be posted on Facebook.

Task 36 – Your daily cuppa!

36 Your daily cuppa!

The daily intake of your favourite brew has probably gone up. So have you raided the Christmas presents yet? Are you trying something new?

Show us your daily cuppa in all its glory… or mundaneness! What’s keeping you going during lockdown?

Task 35 – Photo Sharing – Where to share your photos!

This task is about what you might do with your photos once you’ve taken them. Join a photo-sharing service. Online sharing is still by far the most popular thing to do with your photos.

Task 35 – Photo Sharing.

This task is about what you might do with your photos once you’ve taken them.

Join a photo-sharing service. Online sharing is still by far the most popular thing to do with your photos – with an astounding estimate of 2 billion digital images uploaded to the internet every day!  On Facebook alone, there are some 14 million photographs uploaded every hour! But Facebook is not designed specifically for photo sharing.

Here are some online services primarily for photographs that you might like to find out more about and perhaps even join. And you may know other services, so please share those too.

Each is free and easy to join, you don’t need to enter any card details, etc, but you can opt later to buy additional services.
