Ok, we've almost knocked out two months of this thing already. Hard to believe! I've just squeaked in enough time to come up with a shot a couple times already. Haven't missed one yet though. I hope I can make it all the way through!

Anyway... as always be sure to submit shots that are taken within the time frame of each week's thread. No cheating and using old shots! ::ke: Review the rules at the link below if you have any questions before submitting to the thread. I'd rather we police ourselves rather than having to have the moderators delete submissions that aren't in compliance.

~>Review Rules Here<~

Ok, now for the weekly theme. Starting this week I have already chosen the theme for the next four weeks. I won't go into any details at this point so that I don't spoil the following weeks' "challenge" by allowing anyone to have that long to think about a shot. Unfortunately I have no way of keeping it from myself so I am going to only shoot for each week's theme and purposefully throw out any ideas I might have prior to each week's time frame so I stay "challenged" as well...

Let's kick it off... This week's suggested theme is:

RED

It's up to you whether or not you simply make red the dominating color in a shot, or go a step further and tie the color into the dominating theme of the photo's subject matter as Feral One suggested last week.

As for tips on shooting for this theme, I'm at a loss. Nothing really comes to mind except maybe doing a custom white balance in camera to get as accurate a color as your camera's sensor and software is capable of capturing... :huh:

Anyone else have any tips regarding shooting a "color"?

to me color could also be an emotion like red would be anger or embarrasment and green jealous. i know that is deep but if the shot happens , shoot it !!! i got to get to lookin' !!!

I was having a tough time with this one. Photographer's block or something. Then baby girl asked me to take a picture of her red tongue. Hmmm... Ok, what's more fun than red Kool-aid tongue?!? :D

Here's my red submission. ;)

I hear ya... and baby girl is really learning how to use them eyes to her advantage. Takes everything I've got sometimes to not let her work me over with 'em to get her way. :D
