I thought it might be fun to have a "Speed Side Challenge" this weekend.

Challenge: Single Portrait with at least 6 Variations

Type: Open to all who like a challenge

Award: A special SemperAward will be given to each participant. :)

Rules: Sempermarine Expert Editing. (Normal DPC expert editing with one exception. Only one photograph allowed.)

Submission Deadline: Sunday, March 9th, 2014 (Midnight EST)

Description: Choose one portrait of your liking and edit it using different techniques to produce at least 6 unique portraits. Here is an example:

Original

Have fun!

I'm in.

Love the idea.

Ok!
03/07/2014 06:36:19 AM · #5
Intriguing!!! If we can only use one photo, does that mean no textures? Or can we have a textures special rule?

Sounds fun! I will try!

Textures are encouraged! I wanted to enforce a photograph rule to keep me under control! I have a tendency to rely on other photographs on occasion in an attempt to enhance my work. I need a side challenge with some structure and I thought it might be fun to see what others come up with. I often will experiment with techniques, but seem to revert back to my comfort zone. I'm concerned that I am missing out on something by not sharing my "experiments". So this is an attempt for me to break some creative walls I have unconsciously developed.

I really hope you participate. The more who participate, the more we can share and learn.

great idea, will give it a try!

Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm in! ( even without the textures I'd be in. :)

Now I have to figure out which portrait to pick! Or take.

Sounds like fun, actually. I might nibble :-)

Yay! You're SO welcome back, big boy!

This will be a real challenge with one arm immobile - the taking anyway. It will be interesting to see what I can do.

I hate (making) portraits, but I like speed challenges!

As I walked by with my portfolio of goodies, I saw that this challenge was on. There were, just by chance, [nudge-nudge, wink-wink] ten useless images that fit the bill, so here they are. Well my definition of the bill in any case.

Well I had an SP I was gonna use, but the wife decided to let me shoot her, so I had to start over late in the game here. Better her than me for your sakes. :)

who knows what else...

KILL me for if she sees it -
an Age Progression edit because
I just got bored and went to town ;-)
