    January 2005 - APUG Photo Challenge

    The APUG Photo Challenge is a monthly bash where members go and make a photograph fitting a given theme and upload the result to the APUG Challenge Gallery (towards the bottom of the page on the Galleries menu). The original idea came from APUG member (and B&WP UK editor) Ailsa who said (in part):

    "I was pondering the other day that I often produce my best work when given a brief or a project, whereas when an idea is self-imposed, I tend to just float around it and not really knuckle down. So I got to thinking, how about setting up an APUG photographic challenge thread?"

    "The themes can be as open or as specific as you like, within reason - obviously there wouldn't be much point in telling me to photograph a tree in Yosemite, unless the person setting the challenge was willing to pay my air fare and accommodation..."

    "...it could be a great opportunity to break out of our usual styles and try something completely different."


    And so, the theme for this month has been selected as :-

    "A self portrait that says something about where you live. That could mean your house, your street, your city, whatever. " as suggested by Andrew Moodie.

    Yes, I don't like getting in front of the lens either... ...but that's the point; to try something new!

    Closing date is, as always, the 10th of next month. Let's see what you can do!

    Around the start of next month we'll start a new thread to discuss the theme for February's Challenge.

    All the best,

    Frank

    Thanks for the new thread with the info! I never kept up with the old challenges since they got lost in that huge thread...

    I think having a thread per challenge is a good idea, and we may get more participants. Going through that long thread was getting a little tedious. Can we link the gallery to the new thread each month, rather than leading folks to that long thread?

    OHhhh, was that the thread about? Yah, I didn't even bother looking at it. This it the internet--I have very low attention span

    And so, the theme for this month has been selected as :-

    "A self portrait that says something about where you live. That could mean your house, your street, your city, whatever. " as suggested by Andrew Moodie.

    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Wait'll you get a load of my environmental self-portrait: "Moonrise over Mahwah, NJ."
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
