July 4th is coming up...do fireworks. No imagination involved in that, just a few camera settings.

All great suggestions! I will add them to the list of upcoming challenges. The 4th of July one is a good idea also, probably just fireworks would be too narrow, since that really only leaves most people with 1 day to get shots unless they go to multiple events.

Well.........I LIKE the fireworks suggestion. But OK~let's broaden it. 4th of July. Use your imagination. What's the 4th mean to you.........parades, picnics, boating, swimming, the day at the beach. The problem with that is, it's almost the same as the current challange. Summer. But hey, you're the boss.

Well I was thinking more of a patriotic theme for Independence Day, not necessarily just fireworks. Something patriotic such as a flag, or some type of war memorial, etc...

I took a couple photography classes and we had a few different assignments that I think would be fun for a challenge. One that I thought was fun was abstract, close up pictures of something that is difficult to tell just what it is. There is delayed shutter speeds to capture moving lights on things like cars or stars (which I think you may have done already or something similar with the fire). We also did reflections which was cool. I took a picture of a tree reflection in a puddle and used toner to change the color and it turned out really nice. Just recently I did one in Monkeyevils Jeep ganges and caught the reflections of the passing trees on the trail. I like close up pictures of bugs, flowers, plants, people, anything really. Shadows are also an idea. Somone in one of my class had someone dress in a costume and took pictures of their shadow. You could get very creative with that. Industrial buildings or architecture, looking up shots, self portraits, at work photos (not necessarily at your job, but someones). You could also do a wild card challenge, just post your favorite anything.

There are so many things to do, but those are some of my ideas. I will post more I something strikes me. :)

Firengel~sounds like you had the same inst. I had 12 or so years ago..........all great ideas, too! Shadows are great, I did shadows of my jeep one day on a flat sandy area, a few as the sun changed location in the sky..very cool! I still want to see action shots, which are not really as easy as it sounds. They need to show movement. It's way easier to freeze everything then it is to have say, blurred wheels (cause they're moving) with the truck totally in focus. I tried one whole summer to get the perfect action shot of a humming bird with blurred wings and sharp body, I finally did get it..........but it wasn't all that easy! (or maybe it's just me........)

I will try
I actually took the camera to work with me today to start on this challenge, When I got to my morning coffee spot in the park and got the camera out of the bag, I realized I left the freaking card in the computer.
I'll try again over the weekend
