Weekly Photography Challenge – Lightweight


Each week we try and come up with something interesting and different for the weekly photography challenge here on dPS. The images I shared earlier of: 25 Floaty Images of Lightweight Objects might give you a hint! If you haven’t already seen them, take a look.

Weekly Photography Challenge – Lightweight

You could take the term literally, like the image above of lightweight boxers, or figuratively – the choice is yours. Get creative. What things around your own home could be considered lightweight? Something soft and fluffy like a kitten, a tissue, or a feather – or perhaps something even lighter like puffy clouds on a nice day, or marshmallows.

Share your images below:

Simply upload your shot into the comment 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. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.

(Seriously, how cute are these little guys?!)

    Thank you Arthur, it was a real treat to be able to shoot that night. I think I took over 1000 shots in total and perhaps came away with 20 that captured the moment! Hard work!
