  Current challenge: #230 High Angle Shot
Shoot any subject from a high angle perspective, i.e with the camera angled downward. Shooting from above can simplify an image by eliminating distractions in the background as well as creating a more unusual view of the subject. One can create a high angle by just shooting with the camera held above your head. If the subject is short like pets and children you may be able to simply shoot down from eye level. We are all aware that many of you are facing restrictions or even prohibition of leaving your homes during this COVID-19 crisis. Show us your creative side by finding vantage points within your homes or places you can travel to safely. If your entry uses multiple exposures, please mention it in the Extra Info.

Please refer to the following links for further definition and examples.

  Past challenge: Mini#46 Stuck Inside
As we continue to battle the pandemic, we decided to do another Mini-challenge in the hopes that this will bring you some distraction and a much needed smile. Since most of us have been staying-safe-at-home for the past several weeks, we thought it would be fun to see what Stuck Inside looks like to everyone. The entry can depict what life is like to be stuck inside, any photo of the inside of your home, or view of looking out from inside. As is the case of the current Mini Challenge, judging should be a minor part of this challenge. But, we would love to hear any background story to go with your entry.
