52 Week Photography Challenge

Do you want even more photographic inspiration than the monthly photo club assignments? Here’s an interesting year-long challenge for you:

Dogwood 52 Week Photography Challenge
Each week, the weekly challenge will be in one of 3 categories:

  • Story Telling: Good photographers can take beautiful images of something. Great photographers can tell a story with an image. In this category you will take a prompt and turn it into a photographic story.
  • Compositional Eye: In past challenges we have explored the rules of composition. This year we push the rules even further by using them in specific ways to train your compositional eye.
  • Inspiration: In this wide-open category, we start with a simple inspiration. Use this inspiration as creatively as you can. There are no rules so feel free to think outside of the box.
