Backyard: Weekly Photography Challenge

Article from Digital Photography School

This week your photographic challenge is to take and share a photo from your backyard. If you don’t have a back yard – you’re welcome to substitute your front yard, a local park or some other outdoor garden type area.

The key is to explore an area that may not spring to mind as a great photographic location but which might contain some interesting subjects if you let your mind go there.

As those who follow me on Instagram know – I did this recently in my own yard with my iPhone and ended up attempting some macro photography of some bees buzzing around.

While I’d have had better results with my DSLR the challenge of capturing them with my iPhone was a fun challenge and the results were surprising.

You might like to try photographing insects, flowers or something else with some Macro shots – or perhaps you want to set up a portrait shoot, or shoot some still life objects or do something else. Anything goes.

Once you’ve taken and selected the ‘backyard’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using our embed tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSBACKYARD to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Favorite Gear challenge where there were some great shots submitted.
