This is a list of twenty-four ideas from which you can pick one – or more – to give yourself a personal photographic challenge. We have started this on Facebook, the object for members is to try something new. The list is based on Photo Tips cards. 


Jenny Young tackled several of the challenges and we are delighted to publish her top ten as a slideshow here! Her close-up of an eye is our featured photo here.

Hedon Viewfinders has utilised the personal challenge approach to photography a few times over the last few years. So, if you are still searching for inspiration on what to shoot, then check out our 52 Week Photo Challenge and our 52 Weekly Photography Ideas (next week, is week 30). Of course during Lockdown in 2020 members tackled 50 daily tasks which proved very popular.

If you want to share your photo challenge results with other members, then send them to us by email viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk, please.

The Five Challenges Night!

Hedon Viewfinders next meeting at the Haven Arms on Wednesday 19 February 2020 at 7pm will comprise five fun but technical and creative challenges. You’ll get a chance to work on each. If you’re unfamiliar with your camera settings, we can help you to get the shots whilst the more experienced will just get shooting.

1. Splash photography – Capture a dramatic splash effect with our drops apparatus.
2. Lighting a match – Think three parts of this with our giant matches; the ignition, the flare and the settling flame
3. Bokeh – Create an attractive background with points of light whilst keeping your subject clear.
4. Blowing bubbles – How creative can you get?
5. Eggs – Bring your own egg! What creative opportunities can you set up for the other photographers present?

This will be a learning opportunity with your cameras for some, and a whole host of photographic fun for everyone. We’ll be issuing some light-hearted spot prizes on the evening too!
