The dPS At-Home 7-Day Photography Challenge – Week Three


As many of us around the world are continuing self-isolation, and social distancing (whoever thought that would be a thing?) due to the C-word, we thought we’d make it a little less boring and stressful and give you (and us) an “At-Home, 7-Day Photography Challenge.”

This is week three of the challenge (see week one here, and week two here. You can still do those challenges, as there are no deadlines on any of these).

These are all things you can try in and around your home.

As always, we would love to see your results in the comments section. That way, we can connect and share, and keep ourselves occupied with something positive and creative!

At-Home, 7-Day Photography Challenge – Week Three

Day 1

Go through some of your photos on your computer or hard drive, and give this post-processing challenge a try: Simulating False-Color Infrared Photography in Photoshop. You can get some fantastic results.

Day 2

This one uses the open-source editing program, GIMP. Download it and give this a try: Creative Uses for the GIMP Jigsaw Pattern.

Day 3

This one requires some close-up filters, but if you don’t have those, try macro lenses or even try putting a magnifying glass in front of your lens! Just experiment. Exploring Your Home with Close-Up Filters

Day 4

This one can be fun too. DIY: How to Create a Coffee-Stained Texture for Aging Images in Photoshop. If you aren’t a coffee drinker, use tea 🙂

Day 5

Look for patterns and repetition around your home or garden. Photograph them and then play with them in edit to make them black and white, or bold and bright! How to Use Pattern and Repetition in Photography Effectively

Day 6

Take photos (or use ones you already have), and turn them into monochromatic images in your favorite post-processing application: How to use Monochromatic Color to Convey more Emotion in your Photography

Day 7

This is another color-focussed one. How to Create Abstract Photos with Colored Paper. Find some colored bits of paper (or material) around your home and try this one out.

I can’t wait to see your images!
