This fortnight's photography challenge is....Photographing Winter!
We may not have the typical postcard picture of winter here in Australia in the sense that our major cities aren't blanketed in snow every season, but that doesn't mean that you can't 'do' winter photography.
Think about how you can capture winter by showing stories of the changing nature, such as bare branches or reflections in puddles from downpours of rain. People's attitudes and outfits can change with the seasons too, so you could capture people snuggling up in big coats, or huddling together!
Our winter also brings late sunrises and early sunsets, which means it can be easier to go out and practice some night photography or long exposures - just remember some gloves and a hot chocolate to keep you going!
Perhaps there are Christmas in July events in your local area, or winter festivals? Photographing events can be a great way to get shots of decorative details that can sum up the wintery season.
Think about how your editing can emphasise the wintery feeling too. Taking your colour temperature down to a cooler setting can make the scene look colder, or you could experiment with black&white to take away the colour completely.
Competition entries opened on Friday 29th June, and will close on Thursday 12th July at 23.59 AEST.
To enter (it's free!) you can do one of the following:
Post your photo (one per person unless it's a collage saved as a single image) on the Photoh Facebook wall stating your city. Once on the Facebook page, you'll just need to scroll down to the 'Visitor Posts' tab on the right, and add your own.
