Photography is my ‘thing’, my love, my passion.
And so, I launched The Photo Gallery, a weekly feature for people like me to participate in.
I want to encourage other bloggers to take more photos, offer inspiration, give them all a place to showcase their work.
It’s essentially a virtual art gallery of photographs which opens its doors every week for everyone and anyone to join in.
Here’s how The Photo Gallery works:
➤ Visit this blog every Friday to see what the new photography theme is for the coming week.
➤ Take a photo using the theme I’ve given as your inspiration. There are no rules and you can interpret the theme any way you like.
➤ Now share your photo. Write a blog post using your photo. You can write as many or as few words as you choose, but you should use your photo as the inspiration. You don’t even need to use a new photo; it can be something from your archives. Just a photo which you think represents the prompt.
➤ Come back here on Wednesday when the Photo Gallery linky goes live on this blog. Leave a link back to your blog using the linky tool at the bottom of the Gallery post.
➤ Now here’s the best bit. Go visit as many of the other entries as you can. Leave a comment, discover new blogs, discover new ways of taking photos and maybe share any tips you have. It’s about going out and encouraging each other.
➤ The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.
➤ If you’re using Twitter you can find us on the hashtag #TheGallery.
➤ To ensure you don’t miss a prompt, you can subscribe to the Sticky Fingers feed to have them delivered directly to your inbox.
The Gallery is now entering it’s 5th year which is gives me a huge smile. I have seen people discovering each other, I have seen people really push themselves, I have seen fantastic writing to accompany photographs and best of all I have seen people rediscover their love of photographs.
If you like what you’ve read here then come join in. We really are a lovely bunch.
And if you’d like the fancy pants code for yourself, I have that too . . .
