Photo Challenge Autumn Colors

The theme for the October photo challenge is Autumn Colors!

When I still lived in the Netherlands, I always loved autumn with its beautiful warm colors and the transformational course nature takes. It’s a season that entices you to cuddle up inside and reflect. But also to take a walk through the fallen leaves and have hot cocoa afterward.

So, this is your challenge for October. Immerse yourself and us in the warm colors of this transformational season. And you can interpret colors as widely as you like. It can also be a mood, a feeling, a sensation, and so on.

Photography Playground’s photo challenge is all about enticing you to pick up your camera and share the beauty you’re creating.

The Photo Challenge Rules

  • Stick to the theme. For October the theme is Autumn Colors.
  • You can send in your photos for this challenge until October 31, 2022.
  • Karin van Mierlo will choose up to six of her favorite images as winners.
  • The winning photos will be published on the Photography Playground website and social media channels.
  • You can submit a maximum of four photos per challenge.
  • Include a title, the month of the challenge, and your full name when you name your files. (ex: sunset_august_your-name)
  • Please, share your Instagram account if you have one, so I can credit you when I share the winners on Instagram.
  • You can submit your photos by sending an email to karin@photography-playground.com and/or by sharing them in the Photography Playground Facebook Group in the designated thread.
  • If you’re posting outside of the thread, please, mention the challenge. Photos without a proper description will not be considered as challenge submissions.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and dive into Autumn Colors!

Follow your creative impulses, open your senses, and tap into your curiosity!

Above all, be mindful and surrender yourself to the moment.

Hi, I’m Karin

Your Photography Mentor

You want to pick up your camera with confidence and joy but the truth is your camera is a mystery to you.

You’re stuck in auto mode because you don’t want to miss the moments that matter while you’re fumbling with your settings.

I feel you and I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be this way. Join Photography Playground now for overwhelm-free training and creative empowerment!


“Her unique approach produced almost immediate results. I would highly recommend Karin as a warm, talented, and effective instructor.”


See Fresh

“See Fresh shifted my perspective and gave me a much-needed reminder of the beauty each day brings. It brought back freshness and zest for life.”



“Thank you Karin for your presence, generosity, and patience. I am excited to see where this photographic journey takes me!”



“Your approach to photography inspires me and is wonderful to read. In contrast to all those websites and books about technology and gear, your approach opens a completely different door for me. Instead of reasoning, it triggers my imagination.”


See Fresh

“Great examples were given to illustrate what we would try to capture via the prompts.  Most of all Karin and the other students were very supportive – a no-judgment zone.”
