May Photo a Day Challenge

>> Monday, April 30, 2012

I have had a blast participating in the April Photo a Day Challenge hosted by Chantelle at Fat Mum Slim. This has been my first month with this challenge and I’m officially signing up for the May challenge.

Every month Chantelle posts a list of subjects or prompts for each day of the month.

This is the list for May:

May Photo a Day

Are you ready for a month of photo-taking fun? I am and hope you are too! The hashtag for May is #photoadayMay

For those stumbling across this for the first time, this is a photo a day challenge. Each day you look at the list and there will be a prompt that corresponds with the date of the month. For example day one is peace, so for day one you'll take a photo of something around the peace {a peace sign, something that's peaceful in your life, you doing a peace sign with your hands etc}. You then share the photo on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, your blog, Pinterest, Flickr or where ever you want to share it.

It's a fun way to be creative every day and it's so much to be part of. Anyone can play {even if you haven't played before}.

Here's how to share your photo:

INSTAGRAM: Upload your photo to Instagram, add a sweet filter and put #photoadayMay in the caption so others can see your photos {share to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr etc from Instagram if you like}

TWITTER: Upload your photo to Instagram, add some words to describe it and use the hashtag #photoadayMay so others can see your photos

FACEBOOK: Create an album titled something like, Photo a Day May, and make the album public, then upload your photos. It's a good idea to upload the list too so you can refer to it and others can see what you're doing. You can also share your photos on my Fat Mum Slim Facebook page. {Unfortunately I don't think people can tag my page in their photos.Facebook is being glitchy}.

PINTEREST: Upload your photos to a board, and use the hashtag#photoadayMay so that others can search for them.

BLOGS & TUMBLR: Upload your photos to your blog or Tumblr and share with the world.

FLICKR: Share your photos in the Photo a day group.

I choose to participate in this challenge using only photos from my phone. Between Instagram and a few other photo appilications I have lots of options for editing photos on my phone. I have enjoyed seeing what I can do using just my phone and apps.

If you’d like to check out my April photos they’re on my Tumblr blog at at Whimpulsiveness

What I have enjoyed about this challenge is that some of the daily prompts are easy and others make me think a bit. I’ve also enjoyed seeing the photos posted by my family and friends who are also participating in the challenge.

I hope you’ll check out my results over at Whimpulsiveness and would love to see more people I know participate. If you want to join in the fun head on over to this post and sign up.

Ok. Just printed the prompt and I'm going to try to do this, too. Though I'll probably just do a post at the end of the month with all of the pictures (or not). ;) And since I've pinned it, I'm counting it towards the Pin It and Do It challenge. Ha!

Thanks for sharing this with all of us!
