2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 20 : GUEST POST – DOORS

This week’s challenge will be photographing Doors. This may seem easy enough you may think… however, there are many concepts to keep in mind. It can be any type of door, so let your creativity flow! The following photos are those that I have taken in my hometown, the City of Detroit. A.k.a. The Motor City, The D, Hitsville USA, HockeyTown…The Renaissance City!

My eye was especially drawn to the contrast in colors, as well as the textured bricks here.

Black and white photos bring a whole different essence to the eye. IMO

Don’t forget the basics: lighting/shadows, composition, cropping, balance and symmetry, perspective, negative space, patterns, repetition, etc., etc,.

You may find it necessary to use a tripod as well.

The rules are pretty simple:

  • Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge.org or #photochallenge2016.
  • The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • The posted image should be a photograph, not a video.
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2016 PhotoChallenge is fun and easy.
