Looking for a Photo Challenge?

So, 52 Pick Up started out at a personal photo challenge.  Its purpose has always been to “pick up” photographic skills.  My thought was the more I practiced my photography, the better I would become.  In 10 weeks I have been quite pleased with my efforts.

Now, quite surprisingly my blog has experienced exponential growth in both daily visitors and followers this week.  Thank you, by the way, to everyone who has stopped by.  I have enjoyed both your comments and your own photos.  That got me thinking, perhaps some of you might want to join me in my weekly challenge.

So if you wish to join in, post a comment below with the link to where your photo is posted.  That way we can all enjoy and appreciate your efforts.  When you post your image it would be greatly appreciated if you could be so kind as to link this challenge on your blog, facebook, flikr or other photo sharing site.

Please note, the purpose of this challenge is not to win a prize.  The purpose has, and always will be to ‘pick up’ photographic skills.  Thus the name 52 Pick Up.   In reading many of the blogs of others out there I have discovered my photography skill has improved by simply sharing in the absolutely stunning  photography of others.   There are so many talented photographers out there and I appreciate the work you put into your art.  I invite you all to share your photos and take the time to enjoy the work of others.

They say the eyes are the window to the soul

This week’s challenge is all about eyes.  

Please check out the 52 Pick Up page for the current challenge!

Feel free to interpret this challenge as you wish.  All images should be posted by Sunday March 18th, 2012.

I look forward to seeing what you have to share.

    • These are awesome! I’m so glad you submitted these. I especially like the second photo. The soft colours and details are lovely. FYI the challenge for this week is 50 Steps from Home or Work. So put on your walking shoes, grab your camera and get snapping ~ Sherene

    • They were all good, but I liked the second one the best. Something about the eye looking like it’s just floating there in space was both interesting and cool. Were you the eye model for the pictures?

      • Yes I was. LOL. This was quite a challenge for me first because I’m very new at photography and second, eyes are not as easy to photograph as I would have thought. But it was definitely and I learned some things. But, thank you for your comments. 😀

      • Well, I think you did a good job! Yes, I think it would be difficult to photograph eyes because it would be difficult to see exactly what your shooting and what’s in focus.

  3. What a great blog you have here and quite a challenge. Yes, it’s just like you say…we learn so much from each other and it’s quite fun and so interesting to see what others come up with. I really enjoy! Thanks for a lovely blog. Your photo’s are stunning! 🙂

      • You are very welcome Sherene, and it’s always great to meet others who shares the same passion. It’s only a pleasure and I am sure it will inspire a whole lot of other people. Thanks for a lovely and inspiring blog. 🙂

  4. I’m up for another challenge. Like Judy above, I have just found JakesPrinter challenge, and I am doing the Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress, along with my own photo a day challenge. Why not add another one. Having some themes to work with helps. So, let’s see what I can find with this week’s theme. Thank you.

  5. It’s a great idea….challenging yourself. That’s exactly why I am part of two challenges (https://jakesprinter.wordpress.com) Sunday Water Dragon Weekly Post, and the Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge 2012. It’s been good for me to be part of challenges.
    I’d like to follow you. I need all the tips I can get on photography! 😉
    Thanks for a great idea and a great post! I love your blog!

    • Thank you for your kind words. I have two other challenges I’m doing on top of my own as well. Paint the Moon and MCP are both hosting photo challenges this year. Ithey’ve kept me snapping a ton of photos
      I’m glad you enjoyed reading my blog, I’ve quite enjoyed writing it. And by all means follow along and check out the other posts. Sherene

  6. Hi … Came across your blog and I love it. I’m in for the challenge. I am brand spanking new at this photography thing so I figured a challenge will push me to do something new and of course I love anything that gets me practicing … I will post the finished product before Sunday. Thanks.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a reply.
