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. 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."
The Challenge is currently running.
March Challenge -
Theme: Geometry / Angles
Closing Date: Mar 31
This thread is for the April Challenge (suggestions for the theme and general discussion). At the weekend (26/27 March) or slightly before I'll set up another thread to poll the themes that have been suggested. (Sorry about the tighter-than-usual timescale for suggestions / polling, but I'm going to be offline from Easter for two or three weeks so I'm afraid it's the best I can do.)
What we need now are some good, imaginative suggestions for April's challenge.
Over to you!
