June Photo a Day Challenge

>> Thursday, May 31, 2012

It's time for my monthly chance to encourage everyone I know to participate in the Photo a Day Challenge hosted by Chantelle at Fat Mum Slim. I've been doing this for over two months now and I'm having fun with it. I'm very happy to see that many of my friends both online and off are participating too.

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

This is the list for June:

If you're new to photo a day, let me tell you a bit about it. Photo a day is a fun photo-sharing challenge. Each day take a look at the list and take a photo according to the prompt. There are no rules. You don't have to be super creative or take the most amazing photos, it's all about the social sharing of it. Everyone is welcome to play!

Once you've taken your photo you share it on which ever platform you like: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, Blog, Pinterest ... where ever! Make sure you tag it with #photoadayJune if sharing on Twitter or Instagram

Here's how to share your photo:

INSTAGRAM: Upload your photo to Instagram, add a sweet filter and put #photoadayJune 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 #photoadayJune so others can see your photos

FACEBOOK: Create an album titled something like, Photo a Day June, 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. Don't add them to the comments, but instead upload the photo or share a link on my page. Please

PINTEREST: Upload your photos to a board, and use the hashtag#photoadayJune 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.

One of the great things about this is the flexibility. The way I choose to do this is to only use photos I take with my phone. That takes a lot of pressure off for the photos to be perfect. It also lets me play with the many photo editing apps I have on my phone. I post my photos to Instagram and from there to my Tumblr blog at Whimpulsiveness.

I have really enjoyed seeing how my family and friends choose to interpret the daily photo prompts. Some are easy and fun and some take a little more thought.

I would love to see even more people I know participating. I hope you'll join in on the fun.

Here are a few of my favorites from the May Photo a Day Challenge

May 2nd - Skyline
May 11th - Kitchen

Something you can't live without
