Transport: Weekly Photography Challenge - Digital Photography School

Transport: Weekly Photography Challenge

This week your photographic challenge is to shoot and share a photo or two on the theme of transport.

biG miNiaTURe wOrLd

Feel free you take any approach you like – you can photograph a car, bus, plane, bike, horse and cart, skateboard, train, hand glider…. if you travel with it you can photograph it.

Feel free also to shoot it from inside the transport, outside the transport, with it moving or at a stand still… it’s totally up to you!

Can’t wait to see what you come up with this week!

Once you’ve taken your ‘TRANSPORT’ image and have upload it to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to it or – embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSTRANSPORT 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 images posted in our last challenge – Simplicity challenge where there were some great images submitted.

    NYC subway and bicycling - polar opposites when it comes to transportation other than being better for the environment than driving.

    This is a night pic near the White House in D.C. Loved how it captured the long lasting history of the structures but revealed the speed at which day to day life occurs as well. D.C. is definitely the city where time stands still and flies by simultaneously.

    I accepted a challenge in 1967 while I was serving in SouthEast Asia; it was to display a series of prints themed on transportation. I decided that a package focused around the rickshaws; both pedi-cabs and auto-cabs and dramatic portraits of the drivers of these vehicles. I took the challenge and delivered a large package to the Chicago Tribune that resulted in a Pulitzer nomination. Failed that but, the kudos were great when I came back to the World. Transportation is a great theme. "duaego"
