Ok - I know it's slightly early - but different time zones you know ?

Anyway, just to reiterate the rules . . there are none really

people can commit as much or as little time as they feel possible.

You can use old shots / new shots
Black and white / Black and colour
Layers
Single shot / Dyptich

Your background can be - cut out, painted out, processed out, or taken without . . . so long as it's black ( or certainly black'ish )
Whatever works for you :- )

So far the following have expressed an interest in joining in - but all are welcome.

This will be my first side challenge. I think I am clear on the rules but I have a noob question. Where and how do we post photos?
05/31/2009 11:10:38 AM · #3
Hey Andrew - nice easy question :- )

You simply post the thumbnail in this thread, for an example look at this side challenge

Please count me in for this! I have been doing a lot of florals w/fade to black b/g's and I really like the concept. This should be great fun! Jo ;-)

I was once told this would be too "dark" for DPChallenge. Still it got two comments. I think it is one of my best.
05/31/2009 02:17:48 PM · #9
I'll probably submit a shot or two... I REALLY like the parameters and style!

Unemployed in need of things to do - I'd love to join in on this one!

Here's a shot that has been out of circulation for a while. I will be looking for situations and subjects that I can shoot specific to this S C this month.

EDIT: Per request... I shot this at an aquarium, but the water background was pretty dark already. I darkened it in PP to "black it out".

requested in the other thread as well...

Can people please include whether they shot it that way or processed it that way?

thanks!

i'll try to stop in once in a while.
05/31/2009 11:43:22 PM · #20
how many images, one?
submission/run dates, from - to?
who votes or judges?

Sorry for all the questions, but I've never entered a side challenge.
05/31/2009 11:52:45 PM · #21
If I can enter two sides challenges I'd like to be added to the list.. por favor
06/01/2009 12:01:51 AM · #22
I would love to join this side challenge - won't be able to enter every day, but I will join in when I can.

Here is one - I was contemplating putting it in the Free Study, but I think it has too shallow of a depth of field so I chose a different photo for the Free Study. I hope I made a good choice!

PM sent. Normally one image a day - across June - no judging, just comments and sharing.

Here's my first image hot off the press:

I am going to try to submit a mixture of new shots and older perhaps reworked shots for this side challenge.
That's the intention remains to be seen if it happens! :)
