Those wonderful orbs (Light Painting) Challenge finished on Thursday, 06 Aug 2015 Welcome to the first challenge in The Technique Factory. Light painting has been used in photography since the dawn of photography. Even the word photography loosely translates to drawing with light....Picasso even tried his hand at light painting. The orb is a simple technique in light painting. Research Orbs and light painting and create something wonderful! The images entered must have at least one orb in them. Try this technique at dusk in the blue hour for something really dramatic. If you are doing steel wool orbs please be safe and be aware of the fire risks in your area. Have fun creating.

Reptiles and Amphibians up close Challenge finished on Tuesday, 04 Aug 2015 The idea of this challenge if for the photographer to get down and dirty trying to find these animals in their habitat. This challenge is meant to show off how beautiful the natural world is and all the creatures living in it. I also want it to help bring to light that amazing creatures are right in your backyard and to hopefully help inspire people to go out and look for them and protect them. With our natural world rapidly decline it is important to know who you share your space with so when they're in trouble, you'll know.

Headshots with Painted Backgroung Challenge finished on Tuesday, 04 Aug 2015 How much attention do you pay to your background?
