Water Photo Challenge

The theme for the February photo challenge is Water!

Like light (last month’s challenge), water is the source of life. More than half of our bodies are made up of water. Our beautiful planet is covered with water. It’s everywhere and everything. Water gives us serenity when we look out over a tranquil lake, it energizes us when we breathe in the salty sea air and it quenches our thirst.

For the Water Photo Challenge, you’ll be photographing water in all its manifestations. Have fun!

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 February the theme is Water.
  • You can send in your photos for this challenge until February 28, 2023.
  • 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)
  • You can submit your photos by emailing karin@photography-playground.com and/or sharing them in the Photography Playground Facebook Group.
  • If you’re posting in the Facebook group, please, mention the challenge. Photos without a proper description will not be considered for the challenge.

So, what are you waiting for? Go and get your camera and dive into water photography.

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.”
