Welcome to latenyte photography’s Moonlit Monthly Photo Challenge!
Every month there will be a new challenge subject for submissions and all submissions must follow a few simple rules. The Moonlit Monthly Photo Challenge subject for January 2019 is…”Color”. I would like to see how well you can capture color with low light. If you have never attempted a shot by moonlight before and want to give it a go, awesome. Shoot, if you don’t have a camera use your cellphone. There are no requirements to make a submission other than following the rules.
If you have never shot via moonlight and would like a few tips, YouTube is full of videos. Not everyone likes to read the instructions. Here is a link to Karl Taylor’s video on YouTube titled “Photography Under Moonlight“. It’s a pretty good video discussing the setup of a night shot highlighted by the moon.
- Only your first submission of the month will be judged as your entry, so make it count.
- Your submission must be an original piece that you produced.
- The moon is not required to be in the shot, but can be if you like.
- There can be no artificial source of light from you. If it takes batteries, plugs in or has a switch you can’t use it. Only the creative use of the light from the moon and from using light being wasted from other sources can be used. Trust me I have seen some pretty crazy setups to capture and redistribute moonlight. ( I am not going to be the light police, you know who you are.)
- Tag your submission with #latenytemmpc
- Post in the comments for the month, a link to your submission. That is it.
- Submissions will be accepted during the first 3 weeks of the month.
- The last week of the month will be voting for the winner with the winner being announced in the 1st week of the following month.
- Winners get bragging rights and exposure for your work.
