Happy Halloween everybody! October is on it’s last leg, which normally would mean that a November Photography 101 challenge is right around the corner.
I am using today’s blog to let everyone know that I will not be hosting a new challenge for November.
It has been a good year for challenges, both photographically and physically, but I am still trying to fine tune the challenges. I have not been able to find balance between the difficulty of the challenges and the fun factor involved, but I will continue to tweak with the idea and come up with something fun for everyone.
It seems that the easier the subject list, the more entries I receive, but the diversity of the submissions is definitely lacking. If I make the challenge more difficult the diversity is there, but only a handful of pictures are submitted. September was a perfect example of the latter happening. 10 of the 18 subjects failed to have submissions. We have never had a Photography 101 challenge with empty subject pages. I see that as a clear sign that I have failed as host.
So please allow me the opportunity to re-evaluate my concept. I may have to take the rest of the year off from the website, but I have been using my camera more of late, so it is possible that I may find inspiration a bit more quickly. The holiday season is almost upon us, so let’s focus on spending time with family and friends and we will continue this journey together.
A special thank you to all of those who have contributed. I appreciate the support and inspiration you have given to me and the website. Without you the site would not exist.
