FreeLensing: People Portrait Challenge finished on Friday, 30 Oct 2015 I heard about freelensing from Sam Hurd (which if you don't know him please look him up!). He is a professional wedding photographer who likes to do things his own way and explore and discovery new things or perfect old technics with his own style. This will most likely be considered a niche challenge but is open to everyone with a DSLR and the ability to keep their aperture wide open while the lens is detached from the camera body. Please be careful as dust can go into your camera and/or you may drop your lens. Here is a description of how the process works. Take the challenge at your own risk http://www.samhurdphotography.com/2013/technique/freelensing-photography-techniques And please no trolling

Insects, mollusks, arachnids faces up close and personal (portrait) Challenge finished on Tuesday, 27 Oct 2015 This one if focused on getting right up and personal in the faces of insects, mollusks (snails, slugs), and arachnids. The idea is to get a head on photo of these creatures so the main focus is their face. This challenge requires taking their photos at a different perspective than normal. Kind of like a portrait for this mini guys. The idea for judging this challenge is to see who has the best "portrait" or facial shot of any one of these tiny little creatures. Entries must be focused on faces and not just full body photos. Full body is allowed as these animals are so small but please be the main focal point on faces. No dead or dying animal and no harming or moving the animal from its natural habitat. All animals must be in their home (plants, leaves, stumps,etc). No man made allowed (street, concrete, side of house, inside of house, hands, feet, body, etc). ***Photos below show what is boarder line acceptable and what are not acceptable*** (all photos taken by me)
Winner: Daimler-Hudson 1937

Insects are our flavour for this challenge. Find yourself a few bugs and become shutterbugs yourself. Click a few crickets or snap some spiders (Yes arachnids are included even though technically they are not insects). Remember that I can be meaner than Aragog and will disqualify anything that does not fit.
