  Current challenge: Challenge #221 Long Exposure
Use a deliberately prolonged exposure time to achieve an effect on any moving subject that is the result of the passage of time, i.e., effects like blurred skies with streaks of clouds, smoothed out water, blurred or ghost-like people, light trails, etc. Blurring should not be the result of camera movement or added during post-processing The image must be the result of a single exposure frame (no multiple exposures or composites) Techniques for increasing exposure time may include lens filters (e.g., polarizing, neutral density, etc.), ISO, aperture, and naturally low lighting. There is no minimum or maximum exposure time. The point is to combine some form of motion of the subject with the passage of time (the opposite of freezing a moment in time with a short exposure).

  Past challenge: #220 Trash Street Photography
Photographing strangers in public can be intimidating. This street photography challenge instead focuses on something that is not intimidating trash or discarded stuff in public spaces. The only rule is do not alter the scene, because this is a street and documentary project, not a fine art shoot. Concentrate on the art of seeing, and on composition. Consider some of these tips:

* Try to include more of the scene to add more context to your image.
* Try to include people, such as their feet walking by or disappearing silhouettes in the background.
* Create abstract shots with visually pleasing lines, colors, or shapes.
* Use different angles.
* Use juxtaposition as a way of composing, for example, an object in contrast to its location, contrasting colors and more.
* Use light and shadow to your advantage to create interesting compositions.
