It’s October which means that it is
CHALLENGE REVIEW TIME basically Christmas! No, I joke, it’s challenge review time! Let’s go allocate those Pins (if you’re lost, check this page here) and announce the next month’s challenge. Let’s get started…
The September challenge was the Human challenge. I asked you to shoot and submit one image that includes a human being. The human must be a major part of the image or the main subject, they can’t just have a leg popping in from a side, tiny in the frame.
The video for this month’s review is here:
Anyone with an image in either the shortlist or the short-shortlist or just the entries, in general, should be very, very proud!
That being said, there can only be one winner. Therefore, the winners of the pins this month are:
(If you don’t know what Pins are, please check out the section on pins here.)
But what is the October challenge? This month’s challenge is:
The “White” Challenge.
The aim of this month’s challenge is to shoot and submit one image that shows a subject that is white. A tough one, but one that I think is super interesting for testing technical skill. For this challenge you have to photograph something white – no, golden things or light coloured won’t count – it must be white. Keep a close eye on your highlights. Any subject is eligible.
Only entires which completely meet the criteria below will be collected for judging.
How to enter:
- Select ONE image shot in the last 12 months (or shoot a new one!) to enter into the challenge
- Add “WHITE” in the caption along with the hashtag #ThatTogSpotChallenge
- Post your piece to Instagram and tag @thattogspot in the image
- (optional) Share the post to your story (bonus points for adding a before and after) and tag @thattogspot and #ThatTogSpotChallenge in the story
- Entries close at midnight (UK time) on the last day of October
The image will be judged on all the normal things (focus, composition, clipped highlights or shadows, focus, exposure, editing quality (not quantity!), and white balance) in line with Print comps…
As always, no purchased/downloaded assets are allowed – these include overlays, composite elements and brushes.
The judging will take place at the start of Norvember and the judge’s decision is final.
