Photo Challenges:
October 2012


Last week, as I was writing the creativity exercise for the weekly Ultimate Photo Tips newsletter, I talked about an exercise where you come up with the title of the photo first. This can be a tough challenge! Having the title first is a big restriction on what you can shoot, but that's what gets you thinking creatively If you're stuck for titles, I suggested you try using a song title. I also gave you a few examples:

I gave a few examples to get you started with ideas.

  • Joy to the World
  • Dreamscape
  • Ode to Monet
  • Serenity
  • Transformation

And that gave me the idea to pick one for this month's photo challenge! So, "Serenity" it is. We all need a little serenity in our hectic lives. So please, share an image that says "serenity" to you.

Read the rules. One entry only each month per person, please!

Enter your super-amazing photos in our photo contests. The winning image will be featured on the Ultimate Photo Tips homepage for all of the following month.

Submit your image.
