With the start of 2019 we thought it would be entertaining, inspiring and of course fun to do a 52 week photography challenge. Out of the many out there this one looked like it would be most appealing to professional photographers. There is a page here on the website to upload your images each week. We will post the topic on the Facebook group page on Monday.
The challenge if you choose to participate is the Dogwood 52 Week Photography Challenge created by photographer Dale Foshe of Dogwood Photography. This popular challenge is in its fourth year, after successful runs in 2016, 2017 & 2018 which tens of thousands of photographers around the world participated in.
Each week, the challenge rotates through three categories:
Storytelling (taking a prompt and turning it into a photo story)
Compositional Eye (using rules of composition to train your eye),
Inspiration (using a simple inspiration as creatively as you can).
If you’d like to do this challenge alongside photographers around the world, you can share your resulting photos with the community by hashtagging each week’s photos with #dogwood52, #dogwood2019, and #dogwoodweek[number] (e.g. #dogwoodweek7 for week 7’s photo).
