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.
April Challenge -
Theme: Night Photography
Closing Date: April 30th
This thread is for the May Challenge (suggestions for the theme and general discussion) which will have a closing date of May 31st. In a few days I'll post another thread to poll the suggestions.
Why let other people have all the fun?! Post your suggestions here!
Question - This system's been running for a few months now. Is it giving people enough time to sort out their shots? If not, then I could run the second place suggestion as June's theme and thus extend the timescale by a month.
All the best,
