Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Looking Up, Looking Down.
“The world looks a bit different depending on your viewpoint. In taking photographs I’ve always been encouraged to shoot from various angles as a slight change can substantially alter and perhaps improve the resulting photograph…. especially true when using a wide angle lens. And we know sometimes we should get down on our knees to take a photo, but then, for me, it seems to be getting harder to get back up again. So for this challenge, I want to go for the extremes of Looking Up, and Looking Down, to show the effects of what you can capture at these angles and get a different perspective on our view of the world.”
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Filling the Frame.
“In the last two weeks, we’ve learned about symmetry and asymmetry—two basic forms of composition. Now we’re going to delve into another: filling the frame. When you want your subject to stand out, fill the frame! When you fill the frame with your subject, you eliminate various background distractions. The viewer’s eyes have nowhere to wander. Their attention is where you want it.”
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Symmetry .
“This week’s challenge may look at first a hard one but, in reality, symmetry is everywhere. It’s also not as static a concept as it may seem. Why is symmetry important as a composition tool in photography? It creates strong and balanced images, affecting the way we feel the subject. Our eyes find symmetry harmonious and pleasing.”

Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is On the Edge.
“This week the Lens-Artists are heading in a new direction. We’re exploring “the edges.” What have you captured “On the Edge” of buildings, cliffs, rivers, beaches, tables, shelves, your finger, or your dinner plate? Feel free to use any kind of edge you can think of. You can also take the theme sideways…veering off into another meaning of “on the edge.” Think of “unconventional” or “edgy” or “avant garde.” ”
Are these photos on the edge?
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Black and White or Monochrome.
“Are you ready to show off your black and white or monochrome images? I’d like to see them. Did you shoot them in color and how did you process them? When you post, remember to link to this post and use the Lens-Artists tag so we can find your wonderful images.”
Oh, Black & White is my favourite! These are only a very few recent ones…
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Primary Colours.
“This week I invite you to play with primary colours. You can pick one colour or show us examples of all 3, separately or together. What kind of feelings or moods do any of them instill in your photography, do you actively look for them or enjoy being surprised by the possibilities they present? I’m looking forward to seeing your replies. Please link back to this post and tag Lens-Artists so we can easily find you.”
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Work in Progress.
“If you think about it, everything is a work in progress, isn’t it? So, this should be a challenge open to endless possibilities – I can’t wait to see what YOU think when you hear this phrase. Here are some things I came to think of – hopefully they will help refreshing your thinking cap…Everybody’s a work in progress. I’m a work in progress. I mean, I’ve never arrived. I’m still learning all the time. – Renée Fleming”
The work in progress that is the transition from door to nowhere to amazing stained glass…not done yet, but close!
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Overlooked.
“As a photographer, I love showing the viewers something they’ve missed, whether because they’re in a hurry, because they never really take their eyes off a screen (which is unlikely with my blog followers), or because they look but don’t really see. I hope they’ll say, “I never thought that could be beautiful, never thought to take a photo of that, or never really saw that…and then have them look differently to see what they normally overlook. This week I’d like you to share photos of something you normally overlook or something you think other people would overlook. Have fun seeing what’s out there and I can’t wait to see what I’ve overlooked. ”
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Unbound.
“This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is to capture moments that break the boundaries of your routine.”
If I were to ride one of these…well, let’s just say I am not ready to break that boundary just yet.
Welcome to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! The theme for this week’s Challenge is Fences.
“First I would like to thank the LAPC group for inviting me to host this week. I’ve been blogging for twelve years, so I have lots of images in my archives but I am going to try to keep it fresh today. So here goes…a post about fences. I think any person with a photographer’s eye is drawn to fences. Leading lines are a favorite composition technique that uses, in this case, a fence, to draw the eye to a focal point, usually the horizon, in the image.”
