Check out the Digital Photography School, each week they have a new assignment. It's free and fun, you just need to sign up. This week was "Shadows" I took this last March, I wanted to draw a 'simple ' shape of a scottie, what better way than to get an image from the shadow of the real thing. Your contest photo has to be taken during the week the contest is posted. Maybe next time, I'll get it right. This weekend's challenge is RED. We'll have to see what we can come up with for that one. (Actually taken this weekend.)

Donna 4 Squared

I've been playing this weekend over on They are having an "sisiversay" celebration with fun tutorials, on-line classes and challenges. I found the photo scavenger hunt to fit it best with my current art pursuits. But all is fun there. You may need to sign in to get to the forums, but it's free. this is the link to the scavenger hunt, there are lots of other challenges as well.!
My photo was taken with the iPhone and modified with the Art Camera Application, I then adjusted the color a bit to pull in some more orange. The challenge was to take a self-portrait and in your portrait incorporate each color of the any way you choose. I have a large star, each point is a different color. I thought it would probably show up in the Art Camera application, as assorted colors. It did!!!
