UWOL #6 Theme Announcement...Take Your Best Shot!

Ok gang, as the curtain draws on the conclusion of our first year of The UWOL Challenge, I'm drawing the curtain on all of you. As nature and outdoor shooters, you're spoiled rotten with easy access to the largest and most flexible light source in the galaxy, our fabulous sun. You've all grown soft, bathed in its perfect glory! Well, no more. You are going to have to work for your light in your cameras this time because our final theme of the year is...

NIGHT

You are going to have to pierce the veil in any unique and original way that you can think of...flashlights, campfires, on-camera lights, leftover pumpkins, candles (just don't burn anything down, we've had enough of that this year....). Your mission: find out the ways that the NIGHT is alive and bring them back to us here.

How are we defining night: The sun is down already, and 50 per cent or more of the light has faded from the sky (use your judgment here a bit, it's ok....), anything from twilight into say, about half an hour before the sun peeks over your horizon is fair game.

That cushy thing that you've grown used to, where you get to rest your weary head on a soft pillow and drool up on it for eight hours is over, at least for the next 3 weeks--wake up, get out there, and shoot something!

Deadline is November 19, anywhere in the world!

More instructions, as usual, will be forthcoming in e-mail, as soon as I get all your sign-ups collated. Best of luck to all players, old and new.

Advantage: Norwegians! And Brian! who are getting extra shoot time for this theme, yes?...

I tried to shoot video only once in a dimly lit room,and a combination of my cam and my lack of skill sucked.Therefore I have never bothered to try and film at night.This will be a steep learning curve and some carefull thinking on how to pull something halfr decent out of the box.

NIGHT, I knew it would be a spectacular theme, but who could imagine NIGHT?

The ideas are coming... the hard part will be to turn them into a storyline.

GOOD LUCK to everyone!! We will need it this time.

Night....she said Night. Your a crazy women completely out of your mind. What the heck do I do with that theme...leave on the lens cover and shoot for 3 minutes?

Just kidding, the wheels are turning slow mind you but turning.

Nice thing about up here is I can sleep in untill 9:00 or 9:30 and still shoot at night or leave the office at 3:00 in the afternoon and again it will be night. Now to find something to point the camera at.
