52 Week Challenge 2015

Written by Alan Chun on January 4th, 2015

52 week challenge banner

Welcome to the weekly photography challenge.

From 5th January 2015 I am starting a 52 week photography challenge for people to take part in. Each Sunday a new challenge will be announced on my FaceBook page. You will then have 1 week, until the following Sunday evening, to make your picture and upload it to the page. There will also be a gallery added to this page for all of the entries each week.

This is designed to be a bit of fun while improving your photography skills over the 52 weeks. The challenges will be fun to do and will get your creative minds working and your photography skills honed. I will help out with advice on techniques and settings as much as I can. But you can all bounce ideas of each other and offer each other advice and help as well.

What this is NOT is a competition. Nobody has to beat anybody else or compete on any level. There are no prizes at the end of it, just the new skills and knowledge you will hopefully gain and the satisfaction of producing 52 masterpieces. If you take part then it becomes your own personal challenge to produce something each week that has, in some way or another, tried to get you to up your game a bit, both creatively and in technique.

It doesn’t matter what level your photography is currently at, anybody from novice to seasoned pro can join in, nobody is going to judge you. You will just get encouragement and support.

Feel free to join in at any time during the 52 weeks and please share this page with your friends and ask them if they would like to join in as well.

I look forward to having a bit of fun with everyone over the coming year.

You can follow the challenge photos here

All the best

Alan :)

 

The Reason Why…

Written by Alan Chun on November 11th, 2014

I saw this gentleman on his way back from the remembrance service in Gateshead. The look on his face showed a kind of sadness only a veteran would feel after spending time remembering the pals he’d lost so long ago.

But when he saw the children his face changed, a knowing smile was allowed to make its way across his face. It made me think, this is why he fought and why others gave their everything, so those children could play freely, so we could all be free.

God bless you sir, you are a true hero and thank you.

This grand veteran fought so he could.....

This grand veteran fought so he could…..

Walk proud and see children play freely...

Walk proud and see children play freely…

Smile to himself knowingly....

Smile to himself knowingly….

And always remember those who gave everything so we could be free.

And always remember those who gave everything so we could be free.
