A Photo a Week Challenge: Red

red_nmp

It’s another color challenge! We love color challenges. I do love color challenges, because they allow a lot more freedom. Red has become one of my favorite colors. My closet is full of various shades of reds. I think it’s because red goes so well with my first favorite color, green. When photographing red, it can be tricky to make sure the color doesn’t take over too much. It can also shade the rest of the image, depending on the lighting. Good luck, photogbugs! Have fun with the color red.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A SERIES OF PHOTOS THAT FEATURE THE COLOR RED.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge Rain Drops

As  spring comes to an end here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are experiencing wonderful rain and thunderstorms. In Utah, the moisture is especially needed for the long, hot summer months ahead until we get our second monsoon season in late August. We were at a family wedding waiting in the rain for the couple to make their first appearance after the ceremony when I spotted these lovely tulips dripping from the storm. My husband helped me out by holding the umbrella over me as I captured some fun shots.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT FEATURE RAIN DROPS.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Stripes

Striped yellow tulip

Our world is a maze of shapes, colors, and images. Without any one of them, it wouldn’t be nearly as fascinating to look at and photograph. This week is all about stripes: stripes in nature, buildings, clothing, anything. What’s the most unusual place you’ve found stripes? This tulip is one of my favorites. It was in a bed with other beautiful tulips and flowers, but this is the one that really caught my eye.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE STRIPES OF SOME KIND.

Have fun experimenting with finding stripes all around you.  Then blog your finds and post a link to your masterpieces here.
