Extra Credit: TPE’s fresh look on Photo Challenges


There are a lot of photo challenges out there. But…
we promised TPE would be different.
Let’s introduce TPE’s version of a Photo Challenge.

We call it EXTRA CREDIT. 

February 2015:February-Extra-CreditJanuary 2015:

What is different?

We have not only prompted you with a theme (in January’s case:  Dinosaurs), but we have also restricted you to a technical skill (f/2.8). Combine the theme with your technical skill and you’ve got an entry for our EXTRA CREDIT.

Why is TPE limiting the photography challenge with a photography skill?

We firmly believe your creativity will expand, your skills will refine, and your confidence will blossom as you take these EXTRA CREDIT “limitations” and run with them!


  • ONE image per photographer
  • Submit your image on the TPE Facebook page timeline.
  • Submit your image with the hashtag #tpephotochallenge
  • Submit your image with the following stats:  Aperture/Shutter Speed/ISO  (ex: f/1.8 1/500th ISO400)
  • Submit your image with your business facebook page link (so we can say WOW to your page!)
  • Images should not be watermarked.
  • Follow TPE’s facebook page for extra credit deadlines.  Late images will not be considered.
  • The winning photograph will be chosen by a TPE panel and later featured on the TPE blog, will receive an EXTRA CREDIT WINNER button, + a bonus surprise.

Show us what you got!
