The Daily Focal Point


What’s with these Photo Challenges?
Each week I will issue a different photo challenge for readers to participate in. Participants respond by sending me their picture that fits the photo challenge for that week.

Why do them?
I get asked this question a lot. It’s the same reason I started this P-LOG, I want this to be a place where people can learn. I want to be able to challenge individuals to not only take their pictures but to showcase their work. I wanted to create a platform where others could see not only my work but each others as well. In my opinion we learn most when we challenge ourselves and learn from others. Participating with this P-LOG requires a lot, it is my goal that if you do you will be able to take your photography to the next level!

How do I submit my picture?
Since I post all my pictures on this site through Flickr. If you have a Flickr account I would ask that you upload your photo (if it’s not already on) to Flickr and follow these simple instructions. THIS IS THE BEST METHOD
* Upload your photo to Flickr
* Click on the “All Sizes Tab” right above the photo
* Select the “MEDIUM” sized (500×335)
* Then just email me the “Copy and Paste the HTML link into your webpage” link
This link is in the first box right below the picture and it will be pretty long. Email me this link at cabenelson (at) gmail (dot) com
This allows me to link it straight to your Flickr account and simply copy and paste it into The Daily Focal Point

If you don’t have a Flickr account DON’T WORRY! Just email me your picture as an attached file and I’ll upload it! Again, send me your picture at cabenelson (at) gmail (dot) com

What’s your email?
Email me at cabenelson (at) gmail (dot) com

What else do I need to do?
I also encourage participants to describe their photo, what they like about it, or what they were trying to accomplish.
And oh yeah… HAVE FUN! The Daily Focal Point is all about learning and participating. We want everyone to have fun!


  1. Oh man! I had my first real “outing” with our new camera the other day. Listen, I want to enter your weekly challenge. So I read this page – it says I need to submit a photo that fits the particular challenge. So next week, request one about DUCKS. Haha. I got lots of shots about ducks. Or dogs. So much that it drove Jenny nuts.
