To get a head start on this week’s challenge, first head over to see these 19 images of round subjects. Then come right back!

Weekly Photography Challenge – Round

By FraserElliot

As you set out to photograph round things this week, keep in mind you don’t need to show the full circumference of it, as in the photo above of the lime slices. The viewer can still get the idea that the object is round even if it is only partially shown.

Look all around you (no pun intended) and see what types of things are in fact round or circular. How can you photograph them to look interesting? Think about lens selection, lighting, composition, and processing.

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 favorite 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.

Share in the dPS Facebook Group

You can also share your images on the dPS Facebook group as the challenge is posted there each week as well.
