Environmental Challenge and Online Assignment

enviro-110px.jpgLooking for inspiration or maybe just something new and challenging to shoot. Our Environmental Challenge and the Online Assignment are a great place to start.

The 2021 Environmental Challenge:
Lets see your best attempt to create images depicting either positive or negative effects on the environment from human or animal activity. Subject matter could include natural events, human caused destruction or activities intended to improve the environment such as clean energy alternatives or clean-up activities, just to name a few. People or animals may or may not be included in the image.

Click here to enter. Open trough June 15, 2021


The May - June Online Assignment is "Night Photography" (no Flash)

Put away those speedlights everyone - for this assignment you don't get to use them. If you have never tried night photography, then the time has come. And if you're skilled at night photography, then it's time to stretch your skills and share with us your techniques.

So keep your eyes open for possible subject matter. Will it be lit by street lights?
Neon signs?
Buildings lit from the inside or by floodlights?
Is there water involved?
Are there reflections that need to be included?

There are no other restrictions except that your image(s) MUST BE TAKEN DURING THE MONTHS OF May or June, 2021.

Click here to enter. Open trough June 30, 2021.


We look forward to seeing how you fulfill these challenges!
