Kitchens: Weekly Photography Challenge


Easter BreakfastKitchens – we all have one (or at least should have access to something resembling one) – so lets make our kitchens the focus of this weekends photography challenge.

The task is simple – take the best possible shot that you can in your kitchen.

Let your imagination run wild – you might snap a food image of something in your kitchen, you might take a shot out of your kitchen window, you may choose to sit a portrait subject in your kitchen, you could set up a still life shot on your kitchen table, you might try your hand at a self portrait in the kitchen….. anything goes.

Feel free to take a humorous approach, a serious one, or to be as creative as you’d like.

I can’t wait to see what you cook up (sorry)!

Note: We’re looking for ‘new’ shots – this is a challenge rather than a look through your archives for a shot!

Here are a few shots to get your imagination flowing:

158/365 - Oh, Veronica Mars!!!

Large Order Of Toast

Day 354 - Tea is drunk to forget the din of the world

Once you’ve taken your ‘KITCHEN’ 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 #DPSKITCHENS 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 – Seasonal challenge where there were some great images submitted.

    I nearly didn't contribute this week, got an essay due. But I've been thinking about the dPS post on creating a story in one image. I can't claim this is a strong image or a gripping story. However, I did have fun working out which aspect ratio might contribute to the story and tension that I wanted in the final image.
