Group Description52 WEEK PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE - 2016
Weekly Challenge Categories:
Each week, the weekly assignment will be in one of 3 categories:
Portrait: Portrait photography is really about capturing the essence of a person in an image. A portrait image can range from a classic portrait to candid, or from street photography to a selfie. Each time this category comes up we will dive into a different area of portrait photography. The main focus should always be a person/persons (or maybe a pet).
Landscape: In the context of the #dogwood52 photography challenge, this category is pretty broad covering both traditional landscapes, and some non-traditional areas such as urbanscapes. Don’t be afraid to really explore your surroundings in this category. If the focus is the environment you are in, it will qualify as Landscape in this category.
Artistic Impression: When this category comes up, you really have room to express yourself. You can interpret the assignment literally or figuratively. Unlike the other two categories that are more focused, the main focus of this category is to let your creativity shine.
Group Rules1: BE NICE. No personal attacks. Criticize the photo, not the person.
2: CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM (CC): If you don’t want any CC, label your photo No CC. If a photo is labeled No CC, please don’t provide and CC.
3: See Rule 1.
