As you may have noticed I have had a little bit of a blog freshen up . . .
I took my girl into Violet Posy’s blog salon and she beautified us a treat.
There was a purpose to all of this: I want to show my photos off more effectively because, well, photography is my ‘thing’, my love, my passion.
That’s not to say I’m particularly good at it or even know what I’m talking about, but I do appreciate good photos and want to be able to showcase them better.
And so, to really kick this off, I’m going to launch a new weekly feature for people like me to participate in.
It’s an idea I’ve stolen from another blogger I greatly admire who launched a fantastic Writing Workshop to encourage other writers, offer inspiration and give them all a place to showcase their work.
And it’s been a wonderful way to give writers a platform to launch themselves from.
I want to do that for our photographs.
So Josie, thank you for your idea. Now I’m stealing it x
Every week I will give you a prompt, an idea, a notion and you go out and take a photograph using that prompt. Or just use a photo you already have.
The prompt could be one word, an object, an idea, a phrase, anything, and you have to post a picture which you feel represents that prompt.
Post it on your blog and write about it.
It’s not about taking technically brilliant photos – although if you do, I’d love to see them too. It’s about having a passion for pictures; any photos, all photos whether you took it with your all singing all dancing SLR or snapped it on your camera phone.
You don’t even have to be a blogger to take part – just send me your photo and I will publish it on my blog for you. You don’t even have to include your name if you prefer.
When you’ve published it, come back on Wednesday and via a groovy widget thing you can add a link to your post and share it with everyone.
Visit others, comment if you like them or feel inspired by them. Just go out and encourage and support amateur photographers out there.
Here goes with number 1 then.
I’ll start with an easy one: Beauty.
Personally I find trees really really beautiful, but don’t get me started on that one again!
But what is beauty to you? Where do you see beauty?
Come back on Wednesday and join in. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
And if you want to make sure you don’t miss any prompts or entries in future, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed.
Go on, clicky click away, you know you want to …
