This week we introduced a new photo challenge on the MCP Shoot Me Facebook page. This week’s challenge is to capture emotion with a single shot. We loved seeing everyone’s work on this theme, the range of emotions and techniques used to capture it were amazing! Here are a few of the team’s favorites from this week:

Use the photography challenges as a way to grow as a photographer. Be creative, try new things and shoot these images for yourself. You have the support of a large group of photographers who can assist you and give you feedback as you work on specific themes and skills.
The team would like to thank everyone who submitted a photo for the challenge. You have one more week on this theme, so come join our Facebook Group and participate now. Also, make sure to check the album on the group page for more emotional inspiration.

The photo editing challenge gives you a chance to edit other photographer’s images, share them for critique, and see how others edit the same photographs. Participating allows you to practice editing, learn how to give constructive criticism, and watch what steps or Photoshop actions and Lightroom presets are used in various edits. Join us to edit the bi-weekly photos.
If you have an idea on how you’d edit the image below, or want to see and learn what others did, JOIN US HERE.
Thank you again to Angela McNaul for allowing us to use this photo. The current challenges are linked at the top of the group. Remember, you can also ask for critique on your edit.
There will be a new editing challenge beginning on Monday, so come join the fun.Previous Post: How to Edit Butterfly Images in Photoshop
