The MPC Photo Challenge

After spending the past couple of years trying out a new web host for our challenges, we’ve decided to return to hosting them on Meetup.com. Both platforms have their advantages and disadvantages, but we believe Meetup provides a slightly better experience for everyone.

Our November/December challenge theme is “Holiday Lights”. Entries can be uploaded to the Marin Photography Club page on Meetup.com.

Holiday Lights

It’s the Holidaze!  The time of year where a wonderland of opportunities exists to photograph the holiday lights. During these long winter nights, opportunities abound for you to try your hand at capturing the beautiful lights illuminating the night and early morning. Need some ideas?  Take a walk downtown or drive to your favorite decorated house on the block. Shoot with a small aperture to make star points or try for a bokeh effect with a wide-angle lens. 

Be creative, have fun and bedazzle us with your photo techniques. 

Good luck!

  • Photos MUST be taken during the challenge period, November 15 – December 31.
  • The date captured must be entered in the Title area, along with your title.
  • Unlike PollUnit, you can only vote for one image.
  • To vote, write in the comments section “I VOTE FOR THIS ONE”
  • You can NOT vote for your own.
