We asked you in the Plus community to choose a reverse photo challenge mission for Blake and I this month and we were blown away by how many great suggestions you came back with. Again and again we heard a couple of themes pop up. Lots of you wanted to see us work with a limited number of frames. Still another group wanted us to focus on street or city photography. Blake and I got together and decided to combine these two great ideas into the City & Street in 24 Frames Reverse Photo Challenge.
Happy August everyone! Blake is our guest coach this month and he has graciously agreed to take on a reverse photo challenge with me. What is a reverse photo challenge? Well, most months we coaches set a photographic challenge for you guys to submit images on a specific theme. In a reverse challenge we turn that on its head and you get to send us on an assignment instead. That’s right, you as a community can challenge us to accomplish some photographic mission and we will each go out and tackle it while creating videos about the process and results. This is the call for you to submit those ideas for the challenge. Anything goes within the realm of the reasonable. Below are a few simple ground rules:
Let’s see your absolute best long exposure image. My friends at Hoya have been kind enough to sponsor this challenge by providing Solas 3.0 (10-stop) infra-red-neutral-density filters to the first, second, and third place winners. First place will also receive $150 in cash, while second gets $100. Matt and I will select the winning images as well as some runners up to showcase in a Long Exposure Challenge video we will produce at the end of the month. Below are the rules, how to enter and some tips on working with long exposures from both Matt and me.
It’s an exciting time in the Henry household! Those of you who’ve been around Plus from the outset might remember that my wife Stacey and I had a little boy we named Pike Henry the winter before last. Well after an amazing first year and a half, Pike is about to have a baby sister literally any second. If I disappear for a few days from the forums or am slow to respond to emails, you know what’s up.
