A lot of people have mentioned that they missed this or that past challenge and would like to revisit them...how 'bout a challenge on past challenges. Choose any past challenge you'd like to photograph and put the name of the challenge in the title of your photo.

I second this. I think it sounds like fun.

I would also like to submit something like "In Someone Else's Shoes" -- Take a photo where the photographer has substituted him/herself for another person, and the photo shows what that person would see. For example, a doorman would see a cab whizzing by, a postal carrier would be dropping letters in the slot, etc...

I haven't read the whole thread- I hope I'm not repeating someone-

Find a Moment that is Irreversible-

This was the assignement that inspired one of the winning photos in the NYT High School Photoraphy and Writing contest printed last week in the NYT magazine section. A girl carefully positioned a camera to take a self portrait as her eyebrow was pierced.

How about "Oxymoron: You know, like Jumbo Shrimp, Pretty Ugly, or Alone Together. Dictionary definition: A rhetorical figure in which incongruous or contradictory terms are combined, as in a deafening silence and a mournful optimist.

How about a challenge where there is a specific item that is chosen and it has to appear in all the photos...for example something I am sure we all have laying around, a cd.

Go wild or stay tame with your shot as long as the cd appears in the photo.

How about a challenge where you have to replicate a winning photo from the past. Give a choice of 10 or 12 to choose from. Keep them fairly simple and easy to setup, of course, for the more challenged like myself. I know, probably a bit cheesey, eh?

I still like the poetry idea that John proposed, "Aquainted With the Night" was a good one and would coordinate with a "Night Shots" challenge. Other poems like, "The Road Less Travelled" and "Mending Wall" by Frost might be nice.

Duos

A pair of anything

Trios

Three of anything

Fairy Tales
Take a picture that illustrates your favorite scene from a fairy tale.

Symbols and Their Meanings
Take a shot of a familar symbol and it's meaning

Isles and Islands
Give us a shot of your favorite island. Cities have islands too!

Hobbies other than photography
Take a shot of your other favorite hobby!


I checked the Challenge archives to make sure I wasn't suggesting something that had already been done. I noticed that 4/quartets had been done but didn't see 2 or 3, maybe they aren't archived :) I'm new here, so apologies if I've suggested something old!

Something's Missing
Take a shot in which the absence of a particular element makes it clear what is missing.

Hidden Mysteries
Suggest something clearly without quite revealing it.

I haven't read through all of the suggestions below, so I apologize if I'm duplicating. This is an idea that was proposed several months ago already:

Place of Worship
Take a photo of or in a church, temple, mosque, or other place of worship.

Junk Box

Every body has a drawer or place that seems to catch those things that just can't be thrown away. Take a picture of your catch and be creative.

How about Photoshop tools

Say for "sharpen", you could do a whetstone or bench grinder, "cut" could be some shears or a knife, "crop" might be someone's agricultural field, stuff like that. It might be helpful to put a link on for the list of PS shortcuts (GORDON) so that those without PS could have knowledge of what all the tools are. I think the shortcut pages have just about all the tools. Just title the pictures after the tools so as not to confuse anyone voting.

Just a thought... Bob

Would we be allowed to photograph spot editing tools? ; )

feel free to submit your clone, or your first aid (healing) kits.

I heeded your warning Paul :) It was very warranted.

What about a seasonal challenge I realize that we have members in both hemispheres, but it would be an interesting look at this time of year all over the world.

Expansion can that be the expanding waistline?

Growth the kid who suddenly finds out he can ride everything at the amusement park cause he is now 48 inches tall

Ok I'm ready i like these ideas too when I think about it...

I like Setz's list also. It would be nice to have a string of challenges with no description. Some of these would be tough to do, but fun. Of course, I like a lot of the other ideas here, too. Looks like we've got a few months' worth of ideas here.
06/12/2003 09:06:25 AM · #97
Just one addition to the list. A previous idea of mine. SILENCE.
