Spirit: Weekly Photography Challenge

Spirit: Weekly Photography Challenge


SpiritYesterday we published a post from Hailey Bartholomew with Tips for Taking Portraits that Reflect the Character and Spirit of Your Subject that gave me the theme of this weeks challenge.

Your challenge is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘Spirit’.

Feel free to approach the theme in any way that you wish – you might want to take a portrait that shows someones true spirit or you could photograph something that is ‘Spiritual’ or even photograph something that represents your spirit.

Be as creative as you’d like!

Once you’ve taken your ‘Spirit’ Photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – 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 #DPSSPIRIT 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 great shots posted in last weeks Curves challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    The weather in the west of Scotland has been pretty poor this spring. The flowers which are appearing have needed a real spirit of perseverance as they burst into colour despite it all.

    After some traumatic events this year, I had to go for optimism and think this shot sums that up.

    Fighting spirit:

    My daughter running in the 2012 Stockholm Jubilee Marathon to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis only a couple of years after she herself had a mastectomy.

    I admire her!
