Week 26 and Your Personal Challenge this week

THE WEEK 26 CHALLENGE of your 52-Week Group Challenge is… KEEP FIT.

There is an important human element that is included here and can build upon the street photography skills explored last week. But you can opt to photo the people you know. You can also interpret the challenge with as much imagination as you can muster!

Exercise, running, sports, etc, incorporating human effort and endeavour… your theme this week is Keep Fit!

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.

Week 23 Challenge and Club News

New Challenge for this week 23 and Club News about our next few meetings –

WEEK 23 of 52-Week Photography Challenge – FANTASIA

Mythology, magic and fairy tales. Create an image that fits the theme. You might create a still life of magical objects, or visit a real-life scene that could be a setting for a fairy tale or home to fairies and elves. You could photograph something that depicts the theme. You might create an image that makes us believe in magical powers!
Your challenge: Have fun and use your imagination to create fantasia.

#viewfinderschallengeweek23

Meetings:

  • Wed 8 June at 7pm will be an informal networking meeting with an opportunity for practice and skill sharing. Bring your camera and kit if you have questions about settings and use. We ask more experienced members to bring their kit bags and reveal all their secrets about what they carry on photographic excursions in “What’s in my kit bag!?”
  • Wed 15 June is already looking to be a busy meeting when Mike Covell speaks on “East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars”. Please arrive by 6.45pm for a prompt 7pm start. A collection will be taken at the meeting to cover costs.
  • Wed 22 June, 7pm. Old images – rescued and brought back to life! The talk is by Dave Prideaux who presents a selection of his restored and digitised images – also a look at some of his extraordinary aerial photographs.

New weekly photography game:

Wednesdays will also feature our new weekly photography tasks game. Pick out your own random challenge and enter into the competition album on our Facebook Group. Not on Facebook? You should still be able to see our public page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/166927467046058/ at the preceding link. If Facebook adds any additional text as it tries to encourage you to sign up to it, click at the end of the link in your browser and backspace delete letters until you see the link exactly as highlighted. You can then see the competition album and email your votes and entry each week to glenn.stallard@gmx.co.uk (this is what I’ll be doing – Ray).

Mike Covell talk revealed… and Week 22 Challenge: Jubilee!

“East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2” is our talk by Mike Covell, and perhaps unsurprisingly our Week 22 Challenge is the #PlatinumJubilee

East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2

FOLLOWING the recent poll then the talk by Mike Covell (author, historian, researcher) most requested by members is “East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2“. The talk by Mike will take place on Wednesday 15 June at the Haven Arms promptly at 7pm. Members and visitors are asked to arrive early to find their seats and get their drinks ready for a 7pm start.

Take a walk along the coast or the countryside and the likelihood of finding remnants of the defences put in place to protect the country from invasion is higher than you might think. Some are better preserved than others, and of course, as photographers, many of these make exciting subjects to discover and make images from!

The meeting is FREE to attend, but we will be making a collection to cover costs.


Week 22 of 52-Week Challenge – The Jubilee!

Millions will be marking the Platinum Jubilee over the next few days. Your challenge this week is not only to capture the events in images but to record those parts of the celebrations that might be overlooked by others. Millions of photos will be taken during the long bank holiday weekend, whilst many will sit on phones or camera memory cards remaining unseen, others will be pored over by future generations as unique pictures capturing the mood, atmosphere and characters involved. You know what YOUR challenge is for this Week 22!

FLYING! Week 20 challenge of 52 Week Photography

Your challenge for Week 20 of the 52 Week Photography Challenge: FLYING. It’s the subject of our meeting on Wednesday too!

Hedon Viewfinders – 52 Week Photography Challenge 2022.

#viewfinderschallenge
#viewfinderschallengeweek20

WEEK 20
FLYING!

Whether it’s real flight, a camera trick or an editing illusion, make us believe that your subject can fly! It might be an actual bird or an aircraft in flight, but equally valid is a subject frozen in motion. Flying can also be represented by the effective use of blur. You could take an editing route and try to convince the viewer that levitation is real!

Your challenge: Represent “Flying!” in your image.

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.

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


MEETING WEDNESDAY:

Meeting 7pm on 18 May 2022 at The Haven Arms, Havenside, HU12 8HH is also on FLYING!

We are Flying on Wednesday at Hedon Viewfinders too! But there will be a much wider subject matter for you to explore than the Week 20 Challenge.

This will be both a creative and technical session. Creatively, how can you interpret “Flying”? What props, kit, and gear can you bring to implement your project around the theme of flying?

flying picture
“I want to fly!”

Think of ‘flying’ in the broadest sense. It might not be just drones, helicopters and UFOs, but might be objects or people frozen in flight, your project might employ feathers and paper – imagination is key here!

Think about using some of the technical skills we’ve practised in recent weeks to help create your images.

PANNING Week 19 – and at Wednesday’s meeting too

PANNING is our Week 19 photography challenge! And we’ll be discussing this at the next meeting too!

#viewfinderschallenge
#viewfinderschallengeweek19

WEEK 19 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge 2022 – PANNING:
Take a picture of a moving subject whilst moving the camera so that you blur the background to show movement. Shutter speed and handling your camera are crucial here.
It takes a bit of practice, but you can create a relatively sharp subject combined with a background that features motion blur for some stunning images.
Your challenge: Practice, and try to master panning.

A Frame within a Frame: Week 16

Week 16 of 52 Week Photography Challenge 2022…

WEEK 16 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge is Frame within a Frame which is a compositional tool that can add interest to an image.

WEEK 16 – FRAME WITHIN A FRAME

#ViewfindersChallenge #ViewfindersChallengeWeek16

Using something in your image to frame your main subject can draw attention to it while often adding more depth to the overall photograph.

You can specifically add a frame to your composition before you take a shot, or even add them in post-editing, but this challenge is about observation too, so your aim is to discover naturally occurring frames. But anything goes!

Once you start looking for ways to frame your subject you will find more than you realise.

Your challenge: Look for and use frames within your photographs!

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.

What to do with your images? Week 15 Photography Challenge

Your challenge for Week 15 of the 52 Week Photography Challenge: DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT WITH YOUR DIGITAL IMAGES

Hedon Viewfinders – 52 Week Photography Challenge 2022.

#viewfinderschallenge
#viewfinderschallengeweeek15

WEEK 15
WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR DIGITAL PHOTOS?
You’ve captured some images with your mobile phone or camera. They have survived the delete button and you are quite pleased with them. What to do with them next?

Your challenge this week is to do something different with your images rather than sit in phone storage, memory cards or hard drives. Some ideas and there are lots more:

1) Print them out!
A quaint old-fashioned idea perhaps, but many photographers argue that a photo is not a photo until it’s a print. Your online image won’t take pride of place on anyone’s wall or desk!
Consider producing your own Photo Book or Pamphlet.
There are lots of print shops or online services that can produce your photos as photo books and also as images e.g. on cushions, cups, teeshirts and lots of other products. Check what’s available. Found a good service? Share with your photographer friends.

2) Open an online photo sharing account. You can then invite family and friends to view your work or make it available for public viewing. Try:
Instagram
Flickr
500px

Clickasnap

3) Open a Photo Page on Facebook just to showcase your photos i.e. Jane Doe’s Photography page.

4) Enter competitions. Your aim at first might not be to win but to learn more about what judges are looking for in winning images. This will help you improve your photography skills.

Your challenge – Do something different with your images. Share your results over time with us and remember the hashtag #viewfinderschallengeweeek15.


As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.


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.

Bright and Backlit! Week 13 of 52 Week Photography

Your challenge for Week 13 of the 52 Week Photography Challenge: Brightly backlit subjects!

Hedon Viewfinders – 52 Week Photography Challenge 2022.

#viewfinderschallenge
#viewfinderschallengeweek13

WEEK 13
BRIGHT AND BACKLIT
:

Backlighting can reveal detail in translucent items; think glass, plastic, liquids and thin materials.

Think about how you might backlight your subjects; it might be window light, a torch, flash, or a desk lamp. You might light your subject from behind, or from underneath. Use a tripod if you have one to lock off your camera, and move your subject and light to experiment with your results.

Pick your translucent subject, choose your lighting source. And create a brilliant, backlit image.

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.

“Flowers are the Stars!” Hedon Viewfinders Club News

Everyone is welcome at Hedon Viewfinders meetings, which will look at Flower Photography on Wednesday 30 March

On Wednesday 30 March, 7pm at the Haven Arms the session is on flower photography – and building on what we learned in recent meetings (please send your images in to publish on the website) the aim will be to “Make the Flower the Star!”.

Members are encouraged to bring their own flowers in, but we’ll have some special ‘candidates’ for stardom available. We’ll approach flower photography in the same way as studio portraits with attention to lighting and backgrounds. We’ll also look at some other techniques for creating different photographic effects.


Club Photo Walk.

At Humber Bridge Country Park on Sunday 3 April (weather permitting). Meet in the car park outside the Tourist Information Office at 11am.

All Welcome. Just turn up. There are always members present willing to help with camera settings and other advice: https://what3words.com/eating.deed.vote.
