We love parties, and who doesn't? That is why this week we propose that you "work" but in a festive atmosphere.


Every week I will propose a new challenge , it is a topic that you will have to capture in a photograph and upload it to the Facebook page of the blog, putting in the description the keyword that I will indicate for each topic. The themes will be varied, from portraits to Macro photography, going through landscapes, black and white photography, or babies. The themes will be proposed on Fridays , so that you have the whole weekend to work on them. You will have one week to upload your photograph (one photo per participant), until Thursdayof the following week. On Thursday I will update the article with the photo that has captivated me the most and on Friday I will propose a new topic so that you have the whole weekend to capture your images, and so on…

WEEKLY CHALLENGE 182: HALLOWEEN (FROM 10/28/2016 TO 11/03/2016)

Halloween, Day of the Dead, Day of the Saints, no matter what or how you celebrate it, what is clear is that it is a holiday on more than half the planet and we did not want to miss it.

It is an excellent opportunity to go out into the street to capture images and that will be this week's exercise. You can capture hyper-expressive nocturnal portraits , convey mystery , document what's going on in a graveyard, or get photos that inspire joy (it's a party, right?). The important thing is that you don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to shoot (with your camera, of course!) and show us your talent. I can't wait to see the results!


Those of you who are not from Facebook have the following social networks to participate.

  • Flickr: Accessing the Photographer's Blog Group Wall and uploading the photo directly. Give your photo a caption and be sure to mention “ Halloween Challenge ” in it.

Twitter: uploading the photo directly to Twitter with the hashtag RetoHalloween BdF

Happy photography.


Here I leave you with a small sample of photographs... to start trembling! Thanks for participating!

This week's featured photo is that of Arantxa Gutiérrez Fernandez, “The witch who ate the princess”. An excellent portrait that has captivated me, due to the quality of its execution and the way in which the author has stolen a little bit of the girl's soul. It is a very cute photograph, she wants to pose and even be scary with her witch costume but she can't help but let a smile escape her, because she is happy, vivacious and full of energy. That expressive look says it all and Arantxa has managed to capture it with just one image. The color was superfluous, of course, because the subject suits it, but, in addition, those eyes don't need anything else, they are so transparent and give off so much strength that black and white does nothing more than focus attention on them. The paint also helps to frame them naturally and make them even more apparent. A portrait with soul, very well composed and a very worked black and white. A precious photo. Congratulations, Arantxa! And congratulations to everyone else!
