Trevor is at it again — the July Challenge will be starting up soon. The topic of the month will be LIGHTING FIXTURES. You can shoot street lamps, head lights, tail lights, desk lamps, chandeliers, and whatever else you can find that can be called a lighting fixture.

If you’re new to these Photo Challenges, let me lay it out for you. The idea is to follow a predefined topic set by Trevor. Typically, you push yourself to take a photo every day for the entire month on that topic. When you upload your photos to Flickr or other photo sharing sites, you then tag your photos with the tags that Trevor sets on the project kickoff page. Trevor then highlights some of his favorites each week or at the end of the month.

I’ve participated in a few of these projects, and each time I do I learn a tremendous amount of new things. Focusing on a single topic for an entire month can really get your creative side going and expand your skills. So if you’re looking for a little project or a fun way to challenge yourself, check out the July Challenge.

You know, I have been meaning to participate in some of these. Maybe this is what I need to get me out of the rut that I have been in. Definitely going to take a look at it!
