TOYS: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

Your challenge this week is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘TOYS’. The suggestion came from Patrick Carlos when I shared the picture below of Woody on my Google+ account this week.

L1000656.jpg

While not everyone might have access to kids toys in their home – feel free to interpret the topic more broadly and photograph anything you consider to be your ‘toy’ – it might be a gadget, hobby or maybe you have a toy from your own childhood in the attic that you could dig out and photograph. Alternatively you might like to photograph some kids playing with their own toys. Just have fun with the topic – toys are for playing and so I hope to see some playful and fun images.

Tip: if you’re looking for some inspiration check out our previous post – Getting started in Toy Photography.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Toys’ 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 #DPSTOYS 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 Reflections challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

    I was wondering... If we upload the photos to facebook, in their own album (Like, i was going to make a DPS album) could we just tag the DPS facebook page?

    I really wanted to do this, but i did find any actual toys around my house. So this had to do. I also wanted to keep this pretty much photoshop-free, only adjusted some tones.

  • Brook August 10, 2011 03:10 am

    I had already taken these but I wanted to show them anyhow. When I take photos of toys I think it's fun to make you want to take a second glance to make sure it is a toy. Silhouettes work well in this regard.

    Continuing .. you can try the 'a href=' .. that might work .. if my submission appears here then it worked for me !!

  • unes hassim August 10, 2011 12:46 am

    A comment to those experiencing posting difficulties .. first bear in mind the time zone. I believe DPS is situated in Oz so webmaster is right now probably in dream land. Second when submitting a pic in the 'Leave a Reply' section after keying in your name and email just add the link (http://etc etc) to your pic and see if that works. I suggested to another poster to make sure the link does in fact work.

    If you're attempting to insert your pic in the 'You can add images to your comment by clicking here' section - you're on your own. Doesnt work for me.

    Hope this helps or at the very least confirms your own steps.

    Could someone please contact me at claudiaward1@me.com. I have tried to provide links to photos and//or insert photos in a comment following all of the instructions specifically. To my recollection, I've made comments with links at least 3 if not 4 times and the only comment of mine I see is the one that had no link in it. I enjoy this sight and am learning a lot but would like to learn more through feed back, but that won't happen unless I can get the links to work. I have waited hours after submitting a comment but still see nothing. Any help would be appreciated.

    @ Thor, normally at the bottom of the article before you post, there is a check box thing, and if you click that you''ll get the emails. Try clicking "Manage your subscriptions" and see if that helps.

  • Toysoldier Thor August 8, 2011 12:47 am

    I have a question regarding this thread... I submitted my TOY photo on this thread and now I am geting an email notification for every subsequent posting - which when I woke up this morning there were about 60 emails in my inbox.. I cannot find the button to STOP Email notifications.

    I am posting this in part because I am NOT clicking the "notifiy me" option - hoping that will stop it. But, is there an easier way to stop notifications on a thread in this site?

    Thanks for facilitating the weekly challenge! This is fun. I wanted to let you know that Flickr doesn't like wanna play with your new embed tool. When you click a flickr link, it says it doesn't allow embedded links within frames. Otherwise, great site. Keep up the good work! ;o)

    I was photographing a 4 year old girl and gave her all my toys to play with and set up how she liked. This is what she came up with! I love it!
