Third Thursday Challenge
NOTE: The Third Thursday Challenge ran from September 2012 thru July 2013. It has since been discontinued – but there was a lot of learning and challenging that occurred during its run.
Welcome to the Third Thursday Challenge. Once a month, on the third Thursday, I will take the plunge into something new, challenging myself to expand my photographic vision.
And I’d like to invite you to join me in investigating something different – no matter how big or small. Something that makes you tingle with excitement or tremble with fear. Together, we can help each other explore new creative paths.
There aren’t any rules – just share with us something different from your normal way of shooting; experiment with various subjects or perspectives or points-of-view. Play with a new lens. Try out a feature on your camera that you’ve never used before. Add a texture or a border. Convert to black and white.
Or maybe write a haiku or a word poem. Tell a story. Dabble in words.
Do whatever scares you or challenges you or intrigues you. Give yourself permission to play; to try and fail; maybe even crash and burn. What have you got to lose?
Join in, won’t you?
