DIY Lighting: Photography Challenge

This week’s photography challenge is a little different – we’re not telling you what to photograph, but we’re challenging you to light your shot with some kind of lighting gear that is not designed for photographic lighting.

Your challenge is to take and share an image that does use some kind of artificial lighting – but it can’t be a flash, studio light etc.

We want to see what you can do with a lamp, or a torch, or an LED, or a candle, or the light from an iPad, the light from your refrigerator, the light from a TV…. you get the picture?

Once you’ve taken your ‘DIY Lighting’ Images – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to them or – embed them 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 #DPSDIYLIGHT 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.

Note: while we don’t mind you posting previous images that you’ve taken that fit this topic – the real point of these ‘challenges’ is to inspire you to go out and take NEW photos. So perhaps instead of just trawling through your old photos to find one that fits – grab that camera and go use it too!
