Coastlens : Famous Portrait Challenge

Greetings fellow Lensers …

We’re delighted about how the year is unfolding so far and excited for the year ahead.

Now that the school holidays are upon us it’s time for our first 2011 “challenge” …

This term’s “Coastlens Photography Challenge” is to recreate a famous portrait.

You might like to choose a famous photograph portrait or a painting (or even a sculpture) – but the key is to identify one and see what you can do to recreate it. Feel free to be a little creative with the task and to take either a serious or humorous approach – the main thing is that you’re playing with your camera and hopefully learning to use it better!

Once you’ve taken your photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your Flickr account and be sure to add them to our Coastlens Group or tag them with #CoastlensFamous to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Due by :  May 1 .. we’d love to be able to discuss them at our next meetup

Here’s some ideas to get you thinking but you are not limited by them .. think outside the box!

We can’t wait to see your portraits and hope you have a lot of fun with this term’s challenge!
