HEDON VIEWFINDERS PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB is running a 52 Week Photography Challenge project which is now into its 11th week. The aim is to encourage people to take new photographs each week. Participants enjoying the experience of meeting the challenges will hopefully learn something each week about their hobby. They are encouraged to share their resulting photographs on social media using the hashtags #viewfinderschallenge and #viewfinderschallengeweek(number).
The current challenge – each new one is announced on the Hedon Viewfinders website on Monday morning – is WEEK 11 – TREES.
HEDON VIEWFINDERS – 52 WEEK PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE 2022 – WEEK 11 – TREES
Trees are the perfect subject for UK photographers at this time of year. There are those that still have winter skeletal shapes reaching upwards and outwards. Others have new growth and buds of leaves and flowers, while others already have a full set of colourful leaves or ferns.
Look at your trees in their environment – whether a lone tree or woodland, both offer photographic opportunities. Look up at tall trees for unusual viewpoints. Seek the close-up view of the details in leaves, blossom and bark.
Your challenge this week is to look at the trees around you in more detail and discover the photo opportunities. Spend some time enjoying your study of trees – the mindfulness and wellbeing derived from an hour amongst trees can be very beneficial.
A secondary project that this might inspire, is to follow a tree through the seasons – see how your tree or trees change with the environment.
Your challenge: Observe, appreciate, enjoy and photograph trees.
The Photography Challenge 2022 is just for fun therefore you can play catchup or just play along with the ones that interest you until the new one is announced each week. The Hedon Viewfinders website publishes some entries each week, and participants can opt to join in with the challenges on Facebook too: Hedon Viewfinders – Through the Lens (Members).
