2010 Challenge

Photos from the 2010 Challenge, with music by Doctor Popular.

2010 Challenge from Jeremy Brooks on Vimeo.

This video is a compilation of my shots for the 2010 Challenge. The challenge for 2010 was to shoot one photo each week on a specific theme. The theme changed every four weeks. The themes were:

  • Resolution
  • Natural Landscape
  • Signs
  • Down Low
  • Flowers
  • Gadgets
  • Color Theory
  • Symmetry
  • Macro
  • Doorways
  • Architecture
  • Shifting Season
  • Feet

Shooting the 2010 Challenge was a lot of fun. The changing theme kept it interesting, and having a whole week to choose a shot meant that I could take my time and think about what I wanted it to look like.

The soundtrack for this video is Technitonics by Doctor Popular, from the Beeps and Smudges album. Thanks for licensing your music under the Creative Commons, Doc!

The August Challenge was a fun one: One photo each day of a vehicle. That provided a challenge with no shortage of subject matter. In fact, I often had multiple shots each day to choose from.

Many of the photos for this challenge were taken with the iPhone app Hipstamatic. I think it worked very well, especially for some of the older vehicles. You can see my August Challenge shots on Flickr as well, or as a slideshow. You can see all the submissions for the August Challenge here.

The 2009 September Challenge was another photo-per-day challenge at photochallenge.org. The goal was to shoot and post one photo per day in black and white. As usual, I feel that the challenge helped me to grow as a photographer. As the days went by, I began seeing shots that I knew were destined to be black and white. I saw shots that I would not have seen before.

This video is a compilation of my shots for the September Challenge. You can see all the shots in my September Challenge Set on Flickr, and you can see all the participants shots here.

The soundtrack is “Infornography” by Revolution Void.

2008 Challenge from Jeremy Brooks on Vimeo.

The 2008 Challenge was a challenge. One photo per week, documenting my community. Committing to shoot the same theme every week was not always easy. Some weeks I had no idea what I was going to shoot. Some weeks I just didn’t want to shoot. But I managed complete it. Here are some things I learned from the experience:

  1. Planning is essential
  2. Doing some research about my community and planning to shoot specific things greatly helped in completing the project. I found a list of Richmond fire stations and a list of public art in Richmond. These lists provided an abundance of subject matter. Each week I picked one of the items on the list to shoot.

  3. Don’t wait until the last minute
  4. It was much easier to pick a subject and attempt to shoot it at the beginning of the week. If the subject was no longer there (as was the case for some of the public art I tried to shoot), I could pick another subject and shoot it later in the week.

  5. Make the project public
  6. Posting the shots on flickr, zooomr, and my blog gave me incentive to complete the project once I had started it. The shots appeared at photochallenge.org as well.

  7. Tag the photos and make a set
  8. Tagging each photo with ‘2008challenge’ made it possible to see everybody’s 2008 Challenge photos. In addition, it made it simple to automatically add my photos to a 2008 Challenge set. Flickr does not have the ability to create sets automatically based on tags, but you can use SmartSetr to do it.

Some of the project photos are not very inspired. Some are quite boring. Some I am really not happy with at all. But I posted them anyway, and I am happy with the project as a whole.
I’m really looking forward to the 2009 Challenge, and seeing what the completed project will look like at the end of next year. Can you do the 2009 Challenge as well? Why not give it a shot? It will be interesting to see a whole pool of photos from the year!

The next challenge will most likely be in September. What do you have in store for us next, Trevor?
