Photo a Day

#FMSphotoaday 23rd February to 1st March 2015

It’s horrible to admit defeat but honestly the photo prompts keep building up and up and right now I’ve missed a whole week! Hardly photo a day is it?! Below are my photos for most of last week but for now I’m going to have to put #FMSphotoaday on pause. I think I’ll still take regular photos and share them on here, maybe like a weekly Instagram update but for now they’ll be my own prompts. It’s not even that the prompts are hard, it’s just taking up too much time at the moment when this is probably the busiest time ever for me! Hopefully I’ll give it a go again later in the year.

I found the photo prompts last week quite challenging! How can I take an interesting photo for ‘bedside’ or ‘from where I stand’ if the only place I’m standing is in my house?! But hey, I think I managed it. Looking back at my first photos, I think that I’m definitely improving! I try to think more about how to style my photos, the lighting and how to make them a bit more quirky, abstract or interesting. People even seemed to like my photo for ‘from where I stand’ of me and my giraffe socks at the top of the stairs! Weird and wonderful.

I did quite well with my photos last week. Adding the daily prompts to my to-do list for each day in advance definitely helped, as well as adding all the little ideas that I had.

I’ve started to try taking more photos of my work in progress as there’s loads going on behind the scenes at Bumble and Boo at the moment. So as well as my photo a day challenge, look out for more product shots in the weeks to come!

I had a bit of a panic at the end of last week thinking that I’d missed days of photos! I hadn’t. I had missed two…those two days must have dragged for me to think it was so long ago that I’d taken my last photo!

From now I’ll be adding the prompts to my to-do list for each day (should have done this from day 1!) so that I can quickly see what the theme is for the day when I look at my list in the morning. I’ve even started writing little ideas for each day in advance so when I’m super busy I can get something ready quite quickly.

A very yummy looking Photo a Day for the last week of January and to welcome February. Yes that’s right, I made it a whole month! While my photos haven’t necessarily been posted every single day on the correct day, I’ve still managed to take a daily photo. I don’t always have the time to stage the photos as well as I’d like to but I’ve found that I think about composition a lot more and how to make my photos exciting. I’ll just have to be a bit more organised!

I’ve noticed I’m struggling with my photo a day challenge particularly on the weekends. I just seem to completely forget about it on Saturday and Sunday…but on the whole, I’ve been doing it almost a whole month now and it’s great!

Sometimes I take the odd picture where it’s something quick and simple so I haven’t missed a day, e.g. my collection of DVD’s, but I love doing the more thoughtfully composed photos, like the buttons and bobbins. If I get a bit more organised then maybe you’ll see a lot more photos like this!

I’ve been a bit rubbish lately at posting my photos to Instagram. I take photos all the time, not necessarily with the prompts, but always forget to share them! Sometimes I wish I had an iPhone so that I could use the Little Moments App to make the whole process a bit easier! The app allows you to edit and add to your photos as well as reminding you each day what the prompt is. Looks pretty cool – check it out if you’re an iOS user.

Fat Mum Slim is a great blog that runs a daily photo challenge. A new Photo A Day Challenge list is published every week with daily prompts and the challenge is to take a photo each day that fits those prompts and share to either Instagram or Facebook. It’s a brilliant way to get a daily dose of creativity and improve photography skills.

I prefer to play using Instagram. Take a photo that fits the prompt, upload to Instagram and add a caption including the hashtag #FMSphotoaday. It’s also fun to look at all the other photos that have been shared with the #FMSphotoaday to get inspiration for new photos and to see how others have interpreted the prompt.
