Facebook Pixel Weekly Photography Challenge – Iconic

Weekly Photography Challenge – Iconic

This week we want to see something iconic, that can be a landmark or place or just something that you think people will immediately recognise, like… A certain brand of toothpaste, for example, photographed in an interesting way (Bonus points if you try that!) or the London Eye! (This was a photo I made of the Eye in 2007… on a 6mp camera… those days were fun!) It just has to be instantly recognisable to the viewer. Do your best and have fun! #dPSIconic – Think outside the box!

If you don’t have an iconic building handy, think smaller like ‘Lego’ for example, most people know what Lego is! (Or have stepped on it in the dead of night while checking on the sleeping kids!) The goal is to photograph something instantly recognisable and try to do it in an interesting way!

Great! Where do I upload my photos?

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 favourite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them.
