Indore : In our childhood days, parents challenged us to take up a task, so that we could move out of our comfort zone and try new things. Challenges have taken a fun turn on Facebook, where friends are challenging each other to try black and white photography, spread the love of music and polish their photography skills.
Talking about the challenge that he took up, nature photographer Sanjeet Swain said, “I was challenged by one of my friends to post innovative nature pictures for a week.” He elaborated that the terms of the challenge were: location of the picture had to be mentioned and picture cannot have any living beings.
Swain participated in the challenge as he felt that it was a great way to challenge his skills. “I might not have considered stopping at far off location for clicking such pictures, if I was not challenged,” he said. He added that the challenge helped him in adding great pictures to his collection.
Sharing another interesting challenge that recently starting trending, communication in-charge Leena Sharma said, “I got a challenge from a friend to come up with my favourite song on the alphabet given.” She explained that it was similar to Antakshari, where people shared their favourite songs on Facebook instead of discussing politics.
Another challenge that is going viral is posting of black and white pictures. “I got a challenge from my friend to post my black and white photo,” management professional Geeta Kataria said. She added that she took up the challenge, because she liked herself in that picture.
