November Photo A Day: See the new list and get excited!

NOVEMBER PHOTO A DAY

Hello! It’s so nice to see you here. Today I’m revealing the November Photo A Day challenge list. Are you ready to embark on a new month of photo-taking?

If you’ve played before, you probably don’t need any instructions at all. But if you’re new, and a BIG welcome to you, all the details are below.

If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments below and I’ll get to them. x

How to play FMS Photo A Day

How to play!

Playing along with photo a day is super easy:
Check out the November photo a day list.
Each day look at the daily prompt and take a photo according to whatever the prompt is. For example for day 1 the prompt is ‘fruit’ so go ahead and find something fruity to shoot. It might be a piece of fresh fruit, a ornament, print on clothing, a fruit stall… anything. It can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be.
Once you’ve taken the photo it’s time to share it. There are loads of places you can share it. See below for more details.
Check out other people’s photos. You can browse through them on my Facebook page, in the FMS Photo A Day Facebook group. Or on Instagram or Twitter just search for the #FMSphotoaday hashtag to see them all.

Where to play?

There are loads of places to be social and share your photos with the #FMSphotoaday community:

Instagram: Just upload your photo, use a fancy filter, add a caption and the hashtag #FMSphotoaday and then share.
Facebook: There are a few options here. You can simply share on your own personal page, among your own friends. Or you can upload to my page’s wall, or I’ve created a Facebook group for 2013. You can join it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FMSphotoaday/ Now that Facebook has hashtags, simply add the hashtag #FMSphotoaday when you share your photos and you’ll be able to see which of your friends are playing along too. It’s cool!
Blog: If you have a blog, you could share each day or do a wrap up of all the photos at the end of the month.
Tumblr: Add your daily photos to your Tumblr feed.
Flickr: You can get their app and share your photos there, or upload on their web version. We also have a photo a day group here.
Twitter: You can share on Twitter by uploading the photo and sharing the hashtag #FMSphotoaday. Easy.

How do I remember the prompts?

There are a few ways you can grab the list or remember the prompts:
Come back here each day and click the button on the right-hand side to check out the list.
Right-click on the list above and save it to your desktop. Or if you’re on your phone you could take a screenshot and save it as your wallpaper. {To screenshot click the power button and home button at the same time}.
The lovely Doug has created prompts for us that we can download straight into our calendar, so we won’t forget. They’re ready and loaded right now.

What’s the fab four?

Each day I spend some time scrolling through the photos shared on Instagram and Facebook, selecting four from each platform to put a bit of a spotlight on. The Fab Four isn’t a competition. There is no prize. It’s just a way to share some of the awesome photos being shared for Photo A Day.

As I’ve been taking a few things off my plate with having my baby, I took a break from the Fab Four for two months. Excitingly I’m back this month selecting them for Instagram. And my lovely friends will continue for the rest of the year selecting them on Facebook. They’ll take turns in picking the Fab Four and sharing them in the FMS Photo A Day group. To be considered, just share your photos in the group. Join the group here.

What do the prompts mean?

There are no rules when playing along with photo a day, you can be creative as you like! Interpret the prompt as you please. For those that need a little help, some more suggested details about each prompt are below:

1. Fruit: Find a fruit and snap it. As mentioned above it could be a piece of fruit, a fruit stall, a fruit print or … whatever!
2. I did this today: So, what did you do today? Share one photo from what you did.
3.P is for…: P is for photo. What else in your day started with P?
4. Table: It could be as simple as your kitchen table, or your bedside table, or perhaps it’s a good excuse to eat lunch out somewherE?
5. I collect…: What do you collect? I collect buttons. Crazy but true. What about you?
6. Music: Music is around us, but how do you portray that in a photo? Show us!
7. Yes!: This is where you get creative. What screams yes to you? Is it a child eagerly approving something? Something that you adore? Or something else?
8. Someone I miss: Is there someone in your life that you dearly miss? Perhaps they’ve passed on, or moved away?
9. Mine: What is yours and only yours?
10. Book: What are you reading? Or what have you read?
11. A memory: You could share a photo of a photo, or perhaps you created a memory today?
12. Clouds: Let’s hope the sky plays nice with us today. If not, we’re going to have to get REALLY creative!
13. Part of me: Share a photo of part of you. That could mean a body part {fingers, ears…} or something that is an integral part of who you are.
14. Eating: This could be you, a friend or family member, an animal… anything.
15. In my pocket/purse: Empty out your purse and pockets people. Show us what you’ve got.
16. Play: How do you like to have fun? Or snap a picture of people at play.
17. 5 o’clock: If you get up early, share what you’re doing at 5am. Or perhaps 5pm works better for you?
18. Mirror: It kinda explains itself, doesn’t it?
19. Where you ate breakfast: Where did you eat breakfast today? We want to see it!
20. Communication: We communicate through so many means, phone, email, by sign language, signs; can you show us one way?
21. I wish I had this: Start dreaming baby! What do you wish you had?
22. Behind: It’s always good to look ahead of you, but what’s behind you. Snap it?
23. Simplicity: This is photography technique prompt. Stay tuned for a post on how to achieve simplicity in your photos.
24. A word: It could be in a sign, in a book… or one your wrote.
25. Quirky: Quirky means peculiar or unexpected. Can you show us quirky in a photo?
26. Message: It could be a text message, a note you’ve kept from a long time ago… or a little reminder you’ve set for yourself.
27. No!: What screams no to you. For me it would have to be something like sardines. No way!
28. I am grateful for…: This Thanksgiving what are you grateful for?
29. Black: Share something black.
30. All done: Show us all done! It could be a meal just created, or eaten. A craft project finished. A clean home. It’s something completed. Perhaps even a collage of all of this month’s photos?
