Facebook Pixel Weekly Photo Challenge - Leaves

Weekly Photo Challenge – Leaves

Lots of you got involved in last week’s challenge ‘phones’ well done! This week we want you back on your actual cameras and we want you turning your attention to the trees, but more specifically their leaves! Lots of detail to be found in leaves, interesting patterns, shadows, reflections, mottled sun shining through, etc.

Make sure you read to the end of this post, there’s a little bonus in there for you**

Share your photographs of leaves – make sure it’s a NEW photo for this challenge! You have to take your camera and go take a NEW photo for this one, no photos from your previously shot leaves folder, got it! 🙂

Tag your photos with #dPSLeaves and make sure you tag us on social media.

This leaf was on its plant on a rocky bridge in Scotland, they were in shadow and this one was sitting out in the sun.

During Covid lockdown here in Melbourne, I’d go walking each day with my kids, challenge myself to find a new leaf.

Sun burning through a tree on a cold day here in Melbourne, over-exposed to kill detail and give it a ghostly look.

Well, you get the idea, we want to see you be creative with leaves! Simple really… Take a simple, easy to find subject and try to make it stand out through working on your skill and trial & error! Mostly we’re shooting digital I guess, so it doesn’t really cost much to try, try and try again!

**Here’s that little bonus I was talking about, we want to hear YOUR weekly challenge theme ideas – make sure when you post your photo below that you let us know your theme that you’d like everyone to try! We’ll feature your photo for that challenge.

If you get stuck for ideas, jump into the Facebook group and see what others are doing!

How do I upload my photo to the comments?

Simply upload your shot into the comments field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see. Or, if you’d prefer, upload them to your favorite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them.
