Howdy fellow Seibertronians and welcome to a very spooky episode of the Transformers weekly photo challenge.

Halloween is just around the corner and a lot of you may be gearing up the lil bots (or even the big bots for that matter) to do some Treat or Treating. So why not get the even littler bots into the spirit of things. Put on your hockey mask, jump in your mystery machine and don't forget your boom stick for this one kiddies; this week's theme is Halloween.

Send your bots out on a dark and foggy night and let's see what kind of hi-jinks they get into. Use whatever techniques you need to set the mood. Photo-shoppers, go wild!

This weeks challenge will run from 10/24/15 until the stroke of midnight on 10/31/15.

Submission post use TFPC #6 in the subject line. Non submitters, please feel free to join the conversation.

And remember to keep your browser pointed to Seibertron.com for the latest Transformer news, most extensive galleries and the most fun you can have this side of a space bridge.

Don't worry I won't be posting any more "irrelevant" pictures any time soon on this forum, but I want to raise awareness. :saint:

Updated PSA with a better message:

Now it's more of a precautionary PSA rather than one to scare people with half-truths. (And I personally thought it was true so don't call me a liar.)

That's a good idea, I like it.


And just a reminder. Today is the last day to get in those TFPC#6 submissions.

Well that brings TFPC#6 to a close. I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween. We had some really great submissions and even a PSA.

Thanks SillySpringy
I laughed, I cried I even learned to do the Thriller dance. I'm going to go recover from last night's festivities and try and decide this week's theme.

Suggestions and feedback are always welcomed. What themes would you like to see featured in upcoming challenges?

I want to thank everyone who posted :BOWDOWN:

Howdy fellow Seibertronians and welcome to this week's episode of the Transformers weekly photo challenge.

This week we will be exploring the themes and camera techniques of Film Noir. There are a few ground rules to follow this week. All submissions will need to be in black and white and use low-key lighting.

EDIT: Just to clarify; this challenge is about the themes and style of film noir movies not about recreating a specific movie. You however are welcomed to do so as long as you follow the guide lines of this challenge.

I want to step out of my comfort zone and challenge both myself and you. This is a technique that I'm not very familiar with, so I've opened a post in the Focal Point: Level Up Those Photography Skills thread and can be found by clicking here. Let's use that thread to discuss tips and technique and come back here to post the final result.

I'm a little late on getting this week's challenge post up, so this challenge will run from 11/04/15 to 11/13/15.

Submission post use TFPC #7 in the subject line. Non submitters, please feel free to join the conversation.

Posted by Susha on November 8th, 2015 @ 10:29am CST
so as i look into the low key lighting
here's some movies which I didn't consider noirs and that are game.

- bladerunner
- the usual suspects (not the unusual suspects, but the movie tarantino waz inspired from)
.. but does this make the unusual suspects a noir too?
- Once upon a time in America.. and the godfather. I know they started a genre of their own but .. well...

do we need a more consistent definition of what is considered noir or not for us or can we just leave it at the broadest possible definition? lets just hope no one advocates for jurassic park to be on the list... :HEADHURTS:

I'm sorry, I forgot to be more specific; just the style and themes of old B&W "noir" films. I was aiming this one to more of a technical challenge then the previous ones.

You are welcome to recreate one, but I wasn't asking for that. There is a really cool thread for recreating films with bots that can be found here.

I'll go update the original post.

During my research I was surprised to see that Bladerunner was considered a film noir or a sci-fi noir as Wikipedia called it. Definitely one of my favorite movies; maybe there is some subconscious logic behind all this. :-?
