The MPC Photo Challenge

The August 2022 MPC Photo Challenge Theme is…

Hand Tools

What does a pencil, garden hoe, kitchen spatula and screwdriver have in common? They are all hand tools. Can you imagine your life without your favorite tools at hand? This month’s photography challenge is about hand tools. They may be mechanical, electrical, or handmade. The choice is yours. 

Let’s see how creative you can get. The only requirement is it be a hand tool or device used to carry out a particular function. So, grab your camera or phone, get those creative juices flowing, express yourself. Good luck! 

NOTE: In your title, include the date the image was captured. Please include the metadata with your entry.


We ask that you include the camera metadata when you upload your image.

* Lightroom: Select “all metadata” in the Export window under Metadata.

* Photoshop: Use “Save As” jpg and not “Export As” or “Quick Export” * Capture One:
