Welcome to the Ditch Auto Weekly Photography Challenge. The goal of this challenge is to get out and use your camera. At Ditch Auto, we are all about getting out of manual. That means learning how to use your camera and it’s settings to capture fantastic photos.
This challenge is not about rating or winning. It is about learning. Each week we will introduce a new challenge. You can start anytime. This 6-month challenge has new people joining it all the time.
Our Ditch Auto Community on Facebook is the hub for discussion and sharing of photos. 100’s of people are taking the challenge with us. Each week the challenge is posted to the Facebook Group where we discuss the challenge and cheer each other on. There is a Facebook Group Photo Album to upload the photos to so everybody can view, like, and comment on each other’s photos. It’s been pretty awesome so far and we are just getting started.
The premise of each challenge is that you will be growing and stretching yourself in three key areas: Technical, Composition, and Artistic. I break this down in the announcement video.
