Mobile Photography Challenge March Theme

by Patrick Gervais

Hey there,

So February is over and we’re into March. Sixteen images were submitted for last month’s theme “Letting go” to the Flickr group pool. We’ve had some new people join the challenge and I thought I would welcome them here. Paul Johnrou BechaydaPison Jaujip, Harper Bloom and Nakeva Corothers have all joined in February. So thanks to you all. If you haven’t peeked into their photo streams yet please do and show a little love :-)

So the theme for March is “contrast“. Simple and nothing flashy but I expect the images you all submit to be, well real contrasty. The contrast doesn’t necessarily have to be in the tones but can be in the subject matter as well, so think about that also.

I had a little scare this week when the camera on my iPhone wouldn’t focus anymore. I tried the native phone camera app and other apps as well but none of them could focus, so I was convinced it was a hardware problem. I made a service call to Apple and in the end went to the Apple store where they replaced the camera. It was covered under warranty so it didn’t cost me a penny. Woohoo :-). I thought they might replace the phone and give me an iPhone 4s but no luck! Oh well it’s all good. I also appear to have a battery issue. It is draining very quickly. The genius at the Apple store told me to wipe my iPhone clean and then configure it up again like it was a new iPhone. I backed up the camera roll and made sure iCloud was up to date and will try to wipe it this weekend.

We’ve just received a nice amount of fresh awesome fluffy white snow, yahoo. Here’s a shot from last weekend taken in Montreal after another bit of snow. Winter has come late this year.

Thanks for reading and good luck with this month’s challenge.

    Ahh, Patrick, thank you for listing the new members. I have a few photos I wanted to submit to the Flickr group after organizing and forgot to add them before March 1! Yikes! I’ll visit the group and show some love to those who did post. So happy to find some activity and share.

    Cheers to a great month of March MobilePhotography Madness ;)

      Nakeva, you could still post for February’s theme, you are only limited to 3 uploads per month so you would have less for March. It’s up to you. :-)

        Cool. I will look at the best one or two images I want to share and subtract that from March. Thanks Patrick!

    Very cool idea. I might have to get involved.
