Epic Photo Challenges

Epic Photo Challenges - joelalain.com

The Epic Photo Challenge is one I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while now. After receiving my first DSLR camera back in 2004, I wanted to kick things into gear and learn the basic photography skills. Unfortunately, I became really busy and never “found” the time to start.

Enter 2014

Now, with this blog and my new series of epic challenges that I’m doing left and right, I thought that this was the PERFECT opportunity to stop procrastinating and start doing. Hence this challenge:

Epic Photo Challenges

Each month, I’ll create and execute a few 10-photo mini challenges to test/develop my photography skills. These challenges can be absolutely anything, as long as I keep active and take photos. So I won’t be allowed to procrastinate, find reasons to prepare forever, or wait to find the perfect idea for photos. I will need to quickly find ideas and start executing right away. The rules are simple:

  • Think and execute 30  photo challenges containing each 10 photos before December 31st, 2014
  • Create 30 picture galleries on flickr.com

 

All challenges so far:
