    Picture This Challenge

    This month we are seeking the photographer in you! We are looking for natural shots of your vape gear in way you think is the best way to present it...

    For instance It could be that nature shot, arranged with objects, a collage, a location shot etc...something to get those creative juices flowing.

    Of course if you want to use this challenge to develop those photography skills, or just improve by bouncing questions and answers from others using different editing suits, stacking photos, lighting etc by all means do so as well.

    The point of this month is trying to make the most of what you have, we fully appreciate not everyone out there has a DSLR camera or light box etc, and it really doesn’t matter if you don’t, it’s about putting up a pic you’re proud of, and perhaps learning a few tricks along the way.


    Rules For This Challenge

    1. Shots must be original, natural, lighting editing is fine but no adding other images, or putting them through crazy apps to change the raw photo please.

    2. Unless you are trying to make a photo better as you go, please don’t keep posting the same photo over and over again.

    3. If your photography preference are products with juice then by all means post them up, likewise if you prefer macro shots on a particular part they are welcome too ...just keep in mind we are looking for a theme of sorts...what makes that picture visually striking.

    4. Please give us details of how the photo came to be in terms of how you achieved the shot.

    5. Don’t worry if you don’t have loads of gear, you’re all welcome regardless, as long as you try to change the pictures theme setting as you go it’s a welcomed contribution.

    6. We are not using, nor will will accept any products that would breach forum rules (herb, wax etc) these products are cause for disqualification and will be removed from posts

    7. VU Challenge Team members have chosen to excuse themselves from all prizes, however are free to give hints and tips if the community gets stuck.

    8. Global Forum rules apply at all times (http://vapingunderground.com/threads/rules-of-the-forum.255/).

    9. Challenge Global Rules apply at all times (http://vapingunderground.com/threads/global-challenge-rules.433025/)

    For more info on how the VU Challenges work please see http://vapingunderground.com/threads/how’s-it-all-work-see-here.433027/

    -shots must be original for this challenge and not published works.

    How The Prizes Will Be Selected

    The challenge team will vote on a final list based on helpfulness and shots we think are great….we will announce the winners after it closes.

    (No random roll for this one)

    Edit to withdraw this one. I missed the line about being taken for this challenge.

    I guess I can start this off. I've recently just started taking pictures of my stuff around the house.

    Not much to say about how this one came to be. I was just walking around the yard looking for a spot to try and decided the sandbox might work. It is all natural lighting and unedited. Taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8. I liked the old wood colrs on the bottom.[​IMG]

    Thanks! I've never been into photos much, but the Double Barrel is such a clean looking mod, it made me want to try. It's actually on my vape account on there already..

    It really is. I try to include that mod in most vape pictures for the same reason.
    It really pops in Lightroom too.

    This is NOT eligible for the contest. I posted it somewhere else a while ago. Shame cause Dax looks so good but I want to follow the rules.
    I was trying to take a picture combining my two favorite subjects. My cats and my vapes/pods. I came up with this. Taken with my Galaxy S6 Edge + 20180912_174737.jpg

    So just how inappropriate are we allowed to be? I can see somebody takin a few pics of nude supermodels with a lonely mod just for the sake of "standing out" lol.

    Love the idea of this challenge. I cant wait to see a pic of @wllmc with vapegear in his beard lol.

    Unfortunately in this case forum rules apply; therefore, no pink parts.

    Reminder folks:

    This means, if you have posted them anywhere else (not just VU) it is not considered a valid entry for this contest!

    So lets get out there and take some snaps!

    Open up the aperture, so mod is focused, kitty is blurry, and that'd be great

    Please explain the relationship between these?

    No heavy editing, but post to get tips on editing?

    The idea is to create a good image from the start, not try and make a shit image good by turning it into a cartoon or photoshopping it to death. If you have the photographic touch of death, you can ask for help and you can use this challenge to grow your image capturing skills.

    People with photo skills/ editing skills can chime in and offer advice. Composition, framing, lighting, subject all play into a well rounded image. With an age of digital cameras it can sometimes be lost in post production that capturing a good image from the start was the goal. While some editing with digital cameras may be a requirement, spending more time post processing an image than taking it is usually a sign the image wasn't that good to begin with.

    Post #3 is the spirit of this challenge. Create something beautiful with what you have and share it.

    Are we allowed to throw out ideas of pics we would like to see that we may not be able to create ourselves? Something along the lines of "hey it would be awesome if somebody could do a pic of blank with a blank in the background".

    Purge-Slim-Piece-Carnage-Ultem2048x1367.jpg

    This was shot with a D810 and a Rokinon 100mm Macro lens and a very selective focus from a distance while in macro mode. It was lit by a single window light bouncing off a reflector and the goldish hue is from gold Christmas wrapping cellophane which I use as a warming filter by putting a sheet of it between the light and subject. This keeps the light from washing out the metal. I almost always use ISO 160 when shooting stationary objects, and take a longer exposure since the camera is out of hand. This for me yields a much better image with lots of detail.

    Not an entry.

    This was June of 2017. I was at a public landing close to where I live with some family. I broke the Alien, and gave the Battlestar away since this was taken. I like to look at this picture to remember that day. It also reminds me of how I loved vaping on those devices. Everything seemed new and exciting vaping-wise back then. A lot can change in a couple of years.

    This post made me realize that I've been a member here for over two years! I didn't even notice that bar by my name changed. I feel like such a veteran now :D.

    Similar shot before the sun started breaking through. The mod is sitting on my balcony rail. I tried to eliminate everything else in the photo. Also, like the washed out focus on the all black mod.
    Always thought lighting is key to photography. Sometimes you want flat light, sometimes you don't......subject matter and composition somewhat dictate needed lighting.

    The illustrious Cut Profile combo. Taken with an LG Q7+. Used a light filter to brighten just a touch. Was surprised this phone picked up the wood grain so well. Inspired by the last day of my family vacation this year. Great scenery, great time[​IMG]

    The markings on the side of the SX always reminded me of pirate stuff, so I did this. No filters.

    if your LG has a HDR setting, it'll bring out the grain

    HDR shoots 3 shots in succession, 1 dark, 1 normal, 1 light, then combines the best bits. Really bring out textures

    3rd party apps in the app store will if not, including open camera and hedgecam :)

    No heavy editing, meaning not cutting and pasting pieces of pictures into each other or using the goofy Instagram Style filters.

    something like Lightroom, ultralight or resolve (something similar) would be ok.
