2014 New Year, New Hunt Photography Scavenger Hunt

The following are my submissions for the Autumn 2013 edition of the +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt.

The hunt works like this, We are given 10 categories, and 2 months to shoot them in. At the end everyones photos are revealed, and the winners announced. 500 of the finest photographers compete in the hunt so competition is fierce. You can see my previous hunts here.

Sharp eyed readers may note that there are not 10 photos here.  This is because I only had the time and energy to get some of them done.  It is a lot of work getting Lego minifigs to come out this way, especially when all I have for a camera is a Canon S100 point and shoot with limited focus.  Still, I got a lot of laughs from my shots, and people seemed to enjoy them, so I am grateful that my work is appreciated.

So, onto the photos!

Category: Healthy: (all submissions)  I received an honorable mention for this photo.

The inspiration is obviously Sweating To The Oldies.

Category: Hungover (all submissions)

Indiana Jones gets into all sorts of mischief, doesn't he?

Category: Embrace (all submissions)

It is almost impossible to get Lego minifigs in a hug, so I went with the obvious pun.

Category: Careless (all submissions)


Category: Circle (SOOC) (all submissions)

This category was designated "Straight Out Of Camera", which means, aside from cropping, no Photoshopping of the photo is allowed.  However nothing said no photoshopping of the props.  I took a screen shot of one of my G+ circles pages, then 'shopped in various photos of Stormtrooper minifigs.  I then displayed that on a Nexus 7 tablet, arranged the two minifigs on the end, and the results are what you see here.

Category: Fuschia (all submissions)

I am a man, which means I only know the following colours: red green orange yellow blue, black, white, brown.  Everything else I add an -eenie or an i-sh: "It's greenie blueish".

Once again I went with the obvious pun:

(I still have no idea what colour fuschia is.)

So what do you think?  How can I improve my work?  Let me know in the comments below.
