This way we will have a single easy place to draw ideas from.
To save thread space shall i just edit this first reply as i think of new ideas?
Framed - a subject that has been framed naturally or artificially in some way
Not all there - an image that only shows part of the main subject, be it a close up, an off center view or a main subject obscured
Pick a colour - we had green a while back so another colour one at some point
Your country - things that are only found in your country and no where else
Three of a kinda-sorta - Three different things you have put together or seen together that make a threesome, ie, a wine glass, a glass ornament in front of a window because they are all glass
Sticky - something that is sticky
Cloudy - Something that is cloudy, a glass, a sky, something that has moved in an image to make itself appear cloudy
Single colour background - bit different from the pick a colour idea, your subject has one colour / colour tone to the background
Motion captured - the capture of something in motion this could be either the freezing of something in motion or the capture of the motion itself with longer exposure
Wavy / curvy - something that is wavy or curvy like sea / water or a persons hair, a winding road or path etc
Broken - something thats broken
New to You - An item that you have just bought, been given or found. this could be anything at all, it has to be yours or something that you are in possession of like a hired or borrowed item.
3 way - take a picture of something from 3 different directions
Made by me - take an image of something you have made, made happen or a composition that didn't exist without your doing
Signs of life - something left behind by a living thing that is not in the image, ie foot prints be it human or animal, bird poo, an empty spiders web, an abandoned deserted building etc
Some nice ideas Laura, Framed sounds good and Not all, there sounds like a challenge.
Just a quick few off the top of my head for people who are in a lockdown should be able to do.
A technique sort of thing. Using flash, thin depth of field, fast/slow shutter speed, macro/close up.
Confectionary. And you can eat the subject afterwards
It's the first day of October and time for a new contest, many of us are stuck in lock-down so may I suggest native vegetation around our homes, things such as parks and reserves, around our communities and suburbs. Possibly the native wildlife that inhabit these environments.
I am house bound mostly as well since my wife works and I am retired. The only wild life I have around here are feral cats and starlings, so maybe our pets?
Things that are local would cover the suggestions made and broaden it out quite a bit, maybe just things in our homes?
It's the first day of December, two suggestions, it is nearly Christmas, so the Christmas theme and In and around our suburban parks and reserves.
For the love of god noooooooooooooooooooo, bah humbug.
though, one of my added suggestions of "new to you" would cover the gifts of christmas, it also keeps it open to people stuck indoors for the cold weather (northeners) or covid restrictive areas
I understand the sentiment that not everyone celebrates the holiday season, so I made it open-ended "holidays" you can photograph this time of year however it appeals to you. Even if its not holiday related We can re-visit new o you as a option here in the coming months.
Not for the love of god, yeeeeees, it's a great time of the year, down here in Tasmania it was 28 degrees and sunny yesterday. Covid restrictions are only minor, That would be a bah humbug to your bah humbug and have a merry Xmas and a smile is a doorway to your heart.
