Photo Challenge 7 – Selfies that don’t suck – DigiDIRECT TV Ep 027

This week on DDTV,  the “LIGHT” photo-challenge entries reviewed, and launching the the next of our monthly Photo challenges, with a nifty prize of course — to give you even more reason to enter — y’know aside form the fun of sharing and discussing a themed shoot with other photographers :)

To see who posted what in last months “LIGHT” challenge and comment on, or just +1 your favourites click here;




The Photo challenge will run until the 2nd July 2013 — winner to be announced in Episode 031 on the 3rd.

This month’s theme is “Photographers Selfie”; a self portrait, including a camera as a prop — style and general approach are completely up to you, but please, enter only photos shot specifically for this Photo challenge — digging out old stuff from your archives is missing the whole point… and is lame. ;P


We strongly suggest being brutally honest with yourself and culling it down to one or two of your best shots, a blanket “shotgun” approach of  multiple entries isn’t going to benefit you as only your best one will even be in for a chance anyway right? :)


Entry is open to all, whatever your skill level, or how fancy your gear is… the spirit here is exploring how the theme is interpreted, not necessarily how awesome your gear is.

Filters and minor edits (like contrast, saturation, white-balance, cropping etc). are fine — but do try to keep it “pure”, going nuts in advanced editors to ad or remove things from a photo is discouraged…


Enter by posting your photo in the Google+ DigiDIRECT TV Photography community with the hash-tag; #DDTVpc7 — feel free to offer an explanation of the shot or your thoughts on why you did what you did with it.


A prize will be awarded thanks to

The winner will be contacted privately through Google+ and asked to provide shipping details.

Judges decision on who gets the prize is of course final… but if you do disagree,  feel free to join the community in, constructively, discussing what shot you’d have picked to win, and why.
