(Y) We kept going back and forth between tied and not tied after the poll was supposed to be closed. It was just my first try anyway. Good theme pick by the way. I was just shooting some shadow pics the other day. I'll have to try to get a good one and make sure I have no competition this time! :laugh:

I did try something this weekend but I wasn't happy with the outcome, I'll try again but I think I may have to come up with something new.

Too much football to take pictures. I should have taken a time lapse of the shadow of me on my couch, hahaha.

Im close to giving up on this month, no matter what I try, what is in my head is not showing in the photo :(

 

I don't think this helps with lack of things like flashes or softboxes which most of my ideas would be infinitely easier if I owned. I'll keep try and keep thinking but I don't think i'll make this one

It was raining, short of fludding, on my side this weekend.... so getting out was a no go ;(

 

Could have maybe done a few shadows in doors... but my flat isn't big enough for anything special...

 

Hope to still have something this month before the closing date ;)

I'm starting to think we should give this up... So many people with a lot of gear, who do post, just don't care :/ have the time / want to. etc...

 

Or perhaps turn it into a yearly thing with a prize at the end?

I think my lack of entries is down to lack of time skill with the camera, however that's one reason why I now come in here so much because it keeps my camera in my mind and whilst I don't always get to post something I think stands a chance, I certainly do get my camera out a lot more then I used to, just to try a few things.

 

One Thing you could perhaps do with a yearly challenge is to only allow one photo from each entrant but they are allowed to change it throughout the year. So they are always striving throughout to get something better,

I could post but the problem i have are the themes. I am sure if you got rid of the themes and made it the best picture taken this month wins, then you would see a few more entries.

Well that is the point of a monthly competition actually... Otherwise, we could just chose out of the yearly photography thread.

Man, I wish I had the motivation and time. I've actually got a few concepts in mind for the theme, hmmm.

Maybe just a standard user could take over for them? I'm happy to do it if need be. So I should be around each month to get things started.

Maybe that's a change we could make, I like the idea of the theme but maybe try a "themeless" few months to see if we get more entries. I know it means the winner will technically get nothing but at the same time that wouldn't bother me at all and would hopefully still give me some motivation to try something.
