Outdoor Market Weekend Art Project #WAPoutdoormarket
For last week’s Weekend Art Project, PicsArtists were challenged to go out and shoot photos of outdoor markets and capture all of the hustle and bustle that goes along with them. In total, 705 entries were submitted, images displaying all sorts of goods being stacked, displayed, and sold in the streets. Headbanger @tombaldave earned the top spot with this awesome photo.
House Drawing Challenge #DChouse
The House Drawing Challenge last week, meanwhile, drew 309 entries of a wide variety of homes; some taken from real life, others purely inspired by users’ imaginations. In the end, So Shy @kimoo123 took first place with this elegant, simplistic, and almost folkloric house sketch.
Best of the Blog
Fall is one of a photographer’s favorite seasons. Not only is the light in the autumn months a lot less harsh than in the midday hours of the summer, but there is such a gorgeous natural color scheme from September onwards that it’s impossible not to want to shoot pictures every day, and the falling leaves line the streets making every image picture perfect.
Most of the images on the internet come in some form of rectangle, but every now and then, you need to get a little crafty and think outside the box, or at least change the shape of the box. Shape Crop allows you to cut your photos into all sorts of shapes, anything from perfect circles to stars, and hearts!
The House Drawing Challenge last week had PicsArtists sketch amazing houses, and we have collected the user tutorials from some of the contests most stunning entries.
