Are you ready? May Challenge, let's go!

The May Challenge begins tomorrow! That means the April Challenge finishes today. Have you been enjoying this so far?

As you know, this challenge has us shooting a new object each week of May. This week is the first week in May, and right now I’m announcing the first object.

beverage

It’s that easy. Select a beverage and shoot it for the next 3 days. If you have speed-lights or strobes, set up a studio and get creative. Get out and shoot it as many different ways as possible. Below I’ve selected a sample beverage, coffee.

Now, let me make it clearer. You need to stick to the same object. So, the samples are geared to get your imagination going. But, what I’m looking for is a constant use of the same object. That doesn’t mean that you have to shoot the same cup of coffee. Just stick with the same identifiable object.

Don’t forget to tag all your submissions correctly; “photochallenge”, “maychallenge, “maychallenge2008″.

  1. This will be my first time joining the challenge crew here, so I hope to be up to par. I’m excited about getting started. :)

  2. I liked how December and April made me look differently at things. I want to participate in this as well. It is great to see Chica getting involved too.

  3. I’m still not completely clear on the “same object” part. Does this mean the following?

    Let’s say I choose Coca Cola as my beverage. Do I need to take 3 pictures of Coca Cola, maybe one in a glass bottle, one in a glass, and one being drunk through a straw? Or should I use the same container for all 3 pictures, as well? I think you mean the second (same container with same kind of beverage in it). Is that right?

  4. Thanks for the question Spencer. Your example is correct, when you suggest shooting 3 pictures of Coca Cola.

    I’m most interested in the beverage itself, not any packaging or container.

    (BTW, thanks for using Coca Cola as your example! See my own submissions beginning today.)
