2020 Edition

After a 4 year hiatus, 7Lens.es is back with a new spin on this creative endeavor. From October 2019 – October 2020, follow us on the journey, as we post a photo challenge every two weeks for our lenses to tackle. Different from our previous years, we are going to focus on these “challenges” with a dump of photos onto the blog at the end of the bi-weekly challenge. These challenges will be oriented around areas for us to improve creatively and technically, utilizing The Photographer’s Playbook: 307 Assignments and Ideas. The format will be simple, every first and 15th of the month we will post a challenge and then you will have the remaining days to respond to the challenge with images. Ultimately we will have the posts of the previous challenge posted on the 1st and the 15th, so images will always be looking back to the previous challenge. Hope I didn’t lose you there.

I’m working on ways to make this open to the public, so bear with me as I test out different platforms for this purpose.

Updates will come on this blog post. See below for the list of photographers joining as 7Lens Members.

And after we had a few acquaintances join in organically with tagged posts related to the week’s theme, we just knew it was time to invite the world to officially join in on Instagram with posts of your own.

Back for another year…

Three and a half years since finishing out our first collaboration, we are back. From June 2016 – June 2017, follow us on the journey of 7 Lenses now 8 lenses, as we post a photo a day based on a weekly theme. This year our themes are a bit more open to different perspectives which should yield a more interesting curation of photos! I’m really looking forward to what everyone brings to the submission table (and what might hit the cutting floor).
