The AUGUST Photo Challenge With Cozy Clicks: BOKEH

The theme for the August photo challenge is: BOKEH

Photographers are encouraged to get creative with their photography and think about bokeh and ways that you can capture it in your photos!  The theme is ALL up to your interpretation. Photographers of ALL types and skill levels are encouraged to participate!


Not sure what bokeh is or how you can achieve it?  Check out this tutorial here: How to Shoot A Photo With Bokeh in the Background

OR listen and learn all thing BOKEH on this week’s episode of The Stay Focused Podcast


The August theme goes right along with the NEW Bokeh Pack that was Released in the Cozy Clicks shop earlier this week!  You can even grab a FREEBIE sample bokeh overlay to play with for your entry OR simply get a great shot with bokeh in camera.  You DO NOT need to use the bokeh overlays to enter.



To encourage growth and maybe take you out of your comfort zone a bit, these challenges are intended for you to get out there and shoot something NEW! You have time- this August  challenge ends on August 18th ,2019.  There is no advantage- or disadvantage to submitting your photos right away or right at the last minute!

This year’s challenges have also been created to foster support for each other in the photography community, by commenting, liking and showing encouragement on others’ work! (see rules below)
