No colors (or colours if you’re Scott) anymore, I want them to turn black, and you guys did this week with our dark challenge.  From clever dark chocolate and a holocaust memorial to underwater cave snorkeling you guys didn’t pull any punches this week. We had almost 200 photos to choose from making it a hard choice to pick our winners.

Winners this week were chosen by Scott and Roy.

You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s challenge #prtv_motion. Time to practice your slow shutter speeds. We’re looking for a bit of motion in your photos! To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_motion.

And the team!

Scott’s Winner: 

This jumped right off my feed – a fantastic self portrait.
I love the way it’s composed and lit. It’s crunchy and sums up the dark and moody look. Well done!

Scott’s Honorable Mentions:


A photo posted by Matt Demke (@demke_matt) on

Beautifully composed abstract shot – this is very pleasing to the eye – I love the way the light get blocked and reflected by different elements of the object.

Awesome Panorama! This really pops off the screen for me, I like the light creeping over the horizon leading you up to the stars.

Roy’s Winner: 

Dark clouds and mountains contrast the tiny bit of light from the city making for a great moody dark photo. I like the red sunset as it adds a nice horizon peaking through the clouds.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Playing with marbles☺ #marble #prtv #prtv_dark #nofilter #dark

Heather’s use of playing with marbles in a blacked out background make for a great dark shot. Using blue to go with the dark background makes for a great shot.

More from the Harrington Foundation shoot. #harringtonfoundation #prtv #prtv_dark

A photo posted by Denae Branch (@branchphotos) on

Something I had in mind for the challenge was seeing silhouettes. Denae has a great location and subject with the dark theme giving it a great look. My one issue would be the light stand which could have been removed digitally or just held in place with gaffers tape.

 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
