2014 Photography Challenge

Does your camera have so many bells and whistles that it frustrates you to take a great shot?  Are you struggling to come up with some artistic photos?  Do you just love photography and any excuse to take a photo is a good one?  Well, then the 2014 Photography Challenge is right up your alley!

2014 photography challenge

In an effort to improve my photography and to be inspired by those that actually know what they are doing with their fancy cameras, I will be doing a new photo challenge for 2014.  Each weekend, I will announce a new theme for the following week.

I will create a photo for that theme to show you at the end of the week.  Want to be challenged also?  Submit your photos and I will add them to the weekly post !  Check out the Submission Guidelines!  This is a great way to promote your photography or even your website if you happen to have one! And a fun way to share.

Look here for all the previous and current photography challenges!

So check back every weekend to see what the theme is for the week!

Hi Suzy,
Love, love, love the challenges. I am wondering what the photo topic is for this week. I can’t find the photos from last week and didn’t get the new topic. I’d like to keep up with it each week as it keeps me looking and shooting as necessary.

Hi Louise!

The last photography challenge post is here: http://suzyssitcom.com/2014/06/2014-photography-challenge-the-color-red.html

We are doing the challenges every other week for a bit as with summer, submissions have slowed down quite a bit. The theme for this coming Sunday is Vacation photos! I believe I have a Wyoming shot from you…so you are caught up for the moment. Thanks so much for joining along with the challenge!

Hi Suzy!
I am new to your blog and I LOVE,LOVE, LOVE, your cookie sheet art! It seems all the comments have been closed at this time so I cannot comment. So I went a different rout and here I am. We are going to redo our bath and I’m wanting to decorate with a beach theme. I’m thinking I could use shells, sand dollars, and star fish as a pattern for a backsplash at the sink area. Have you seen, or done anything with shells this way?

Hi Teresa!

Thank you so much for you kind words! It always makes my day to know that I have inspired others!

Regarding bathrooms, I have one post where I created a textured chair rail of shells- you can find it here: http://suzyssitcom.com/2012/05/feature-friday-faux-chair-rail-tutorial.html

I have quite a few patterns out there including the Sleeping Mermaid (also done on a cookie sheet)- you can find the tutorial here: http://suzyssitcom.com/2012/10/feature-friday-introducing-the-sleeping-mermaid-pattern.html

And also on the ocean/fish theme, there is my Enchanted Fish Pattern: http://suzyssitcom.com/2012/08/feature-friday-enchanted-fish.html

Hope that helps!

Hmm….I’ve looked all over, but am unable to find the current photo challenge theme. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong place?
