My entry to Photography Locked Down Week 8 – Let's Be Negative
Mike Browne found a way to help photographers creatively through the pandemic Lockdown by setting photo challenges for 12 weeks, which included a tutorial video with suggestions about how to approach the given challenge theme. All entries had to be taken under Lockdown conditions, i.e. in one's home or garden, had to be shot specifically for the challenge, and Facebook was used as a platform. Mike, or a guest judge, provided live YouTube feedback on select entries, gave helpful suggestions on how a particular shot could have been made stronger, and selected runners-up and a winner for each challenge. He did this for free!!! – Nature and wildlife photographers found ways to look at their immediate environment "with new eyes" and people crawled around their homes on their back and moved objects around on their dining table to put their ideas into pixels. – The programme proved so popular that it continues to this day – no longer under Lockdown conditions but we have it "Locked Down". To make it viable for Mike Browne, he asks for a small monthly donation covering the two monthly challenges. The themes are usually very broad to force us to think...
