2017 PHOTO CHALLENGES



Welcome to All About Paper's Photo Enthusiasts Group
Photo Challenge Blog!

Each month a photo challenge will be presented with a focus on using a specific function of your camera or taking photos based on a specific theme or subject matter.

You are welcomed to follow along with the monthly challenges through this blog.

Once a month our group meets and shares our 3 best challenge photos for that month. 
We discuss methods, difficulties, new things learned, etc.

For additional inspiration check out:

If you would like to join our monthly meetings...we meet on the 3rd Sunday of every month, 
from 2-4pm, at The Partridge House, 777 Lafayette Rd., Hampton, NH

Remember to bring your 3 best photos from that month's challenge.

And this year we are asking for 3 Bonus photos each month;
of anything you have taken photos of during the challenge month.
 We would like to see what everyone is shooting photos of outside of the challenges!
