Monthly Photo Challenges and Live Feedback
Photo creative challenges are projects for you to practise your photography, creative skills and gain experience. The Photo Creative Facebook group has a lively, supportive community of over 4,000 photographers of all skill levels.
Current Challenge: The Elements
Here are some ideas ...
- Air: Capture the movement of wind through trees or the delicate flight of birds against the sky.
- Water: Photograph cascading waterfalls, clouds reflected in calm waters or crashing ocean waves.
- Fire: A crackling bonfire - or the vibrant glow of molten lava (if you have a volcano handy...)
- Light: Showcase the interplay of sunlight and shadows, creating dramatic contrasts and enhancing depth.
- Geology: Capture the intricate patterns of rock formations, ancient cliffs, or the raw beauty of geological landscapes.
Use light, composition and camera skills to make your chosen element the stand out subject. For example, this approaching storm on a Lanzarote workshop utilises composition to capture the elemental aspect. The storm is the dominant feature, not the landscape.
Have fun ...

No AI or Archive Images - Shoot For The Challenge
Please Do Not enter images from your archive. Shoot for the challenge. We learn and grow by doing - not sitting back and being lazy. Archive images will be disqualified as will AI. This is about photography skills not prompt writing skills. Thanks...
It's not expected - but your support is appreciated
We all like to be paid for our work and expertise and there are costs involved with running these challenges. If you have gotten value from them, please consider a small donation to help. A monthly donation equivalent to the cost of 1 take away coffee is very much appreciated.
- ONE entry per person - Include the weekly #hashtag in the text field
- Give your image a caption which includes the challenge title
- Entries MUST be posted to designated album in the Facebook group by 23:59pm [UK Time] on the closing date of each challenge
- No archive images. Entries must be taken specifically for each challenge
Judging and feedback sessions are Live on YouTube. Dates, times and challenge themes are published on this page and in the Facebook group.
My chosen 'Pic Of The Month' becomes the group banner image until the next challenge.
Good luck, get stuck in and I look forward to seeing your images...
