#photochallengesummer16 Sunday 24th July

Thank you to all of you who are joining in with the Summer 16 photo challenge. Sometimes I need more than 140 characters to explain the challenge and today is one of those days.

I want to challenge you to take creative photos in a particular way. Put your camera on the floor and shoot your subject in this way - don't angle your camera and in some cases e.g in a field or the garden - don't even look at what you are shooting. Yes you will get some dreadful images at first but you will surprise yourself and get some really artistic ones.

Even simple blades of grass can be effective if you shoot in this way. Break the rules, shoot into the sun, spray with water first...

This technique works well with street photography ( but you will get some strange looks), or even portraits with a difference like the one below.

What are you waiting for? get those old clothes on and lie on the floor :) J x

Almost there...

For most teachers the Summer break is within touching distance - so close! I know everyone has a long list of good intentions as to what they will do in the Summer but make sure you take some time for you. To that end I'm going to post random photography challenges that will hopefully encourage you to get those cameras or phones out and look at what is around you. Nothing serious just a bit of fun!

Today is 'Shadows' - as I sat drinking my coffee this morning I noticed some lovely shadows on the ceiling - a quick walk around with my phone and I found several more.

Use a collage app - any will do - I used #Moldiv - then an art filter - I used #Prisma which applies different art styles great fun but addictive
