Project MCP: Highlights for June, Challenge #2

This week’s challenge was to snap a night photo. Night photos can be tricky to capture, but are oftentimes some of the most dramatic and beautiful images caught on film (or SD card).  This week’s Flickr gallery is full of night landscapes, activities and portraits taken in dynamic night settings.  Here are a few of the Project MCP Team’s favorites:

 June, Challenge #3 is to snap a candid shot.  A candid photo is one that focuses on people and spontaneity. Candid photos capture the emotion and relationships of life unscripted. No poses, no fancy lighting, no difficult techniques; just you, the people around you and your camera.

You be sure to take a fabulous candid shot by following a couple of simple tips:

  • Use the auto setting on your camera – No need to worry about lighting or complicated techniques, just point and click,
  • Take your camera everywhere you go – You never know when the perfect candid shot might present itself,
  • Use your zoom – Sit back, observe and capture a shot from afar.
We cannot wait to see your shots!

We want to thank our corporate sponsors for Project MCP:

    I love the first one in the tent. I think removing the color really made it more peaceful!
