August 2018 Photo A Day Challenge

Fat Mum Slim /

Good morning.

I’m currently cuddled up on the couch with my littlest watching The Heffalump Movie and I thought I should pop in and share the new photo a day list with you. This one has prompts created by the lovely Jenny from Love Wednesday. I love what she’s done this month, don’t you?

HOW TO PLAY

+ Playing along is really simple! Just look at the list each day and take a photo using the prompt as inspiration. So, for example, Day 1 is MY VICE, so all you have to do is take a photo of something that you’d consider to be your vice {something kinda wicked that you can’t give up}.
+ You can then share your photo on either Facebook or Instagram or both! To share on Instagram, just upload with the hashtag #FMSPAD and you’re done {more details below if you need them though!} and to share on Facebook, upload to your personal page or jump into our Facebook group and share there.

HOW TO PLAY ON INSTAGRAM

+ Simply upload the photo to Instagram, add a caption {you could mention the day and the prompt in the caption}, add the hashtag #FMSPAD and then publish.
+ Check out the #FMSPAD hashtag to see all the other photos. Like them. Comment on them. Be part of the community.
+ Each day a Fab Four is picked from the photos shared on Instagram for the challenge. It’s four photos that have captured our attention from each prompt. Check the feed here to see the photos.
+ To make it easier to find all the daily photos, you can find and use the daily hashtags below. Simply add them to your caption when uploading to Instagram.  Alternatively, my App {The Little Moments App for iPhone/iPad} generates the daily hashtag for you automatically so it takes all the thinking out of it for you!

HOW TO SHARE ON FACEBOOK

+ Upload the photo in our Facebook Photo A Day group {you’ll be added within 12 hours of requesting}, add a caption {you could mention the day and the prompt in the caption} and then publish. You’re also welcome to share on your personal page, if that’s how you like to roll.
+ Check out the photos shared in the group, or among your friends. Comment, like and be part of the photo-taking community.
+ Each day a Fab Four is picked from the photos shared in our Facebook group for the challenge by our lovely admin team. It’s four {or more} photos that have captured our attention from each prompt. The photos are made into a collage, shared and pinned to the top of the group.

HOW TO REMEMBER THE PROMPTS EASILY

+ For all devices and PC, we upload the prompts which you can download automatically into your phone or PC calendar. For Smartphones & Mac Calendar, click here. For HTML for web viewing, click here.
+ You can also print out the list, save it as your screensaver or save it to your camera roll.
+ If you’re a lucky iPhone or iPad owner, you can use the Little Moments App to remind you of what the prompts are, as well as make your photos a bit fancy. You can grab the App here.

If you want more help with the prompts, and ideas of what to take photos below, read on:
1. My vice
A vice is a habit you have, usually not a great one. What’s your vice? What can’t you give up?
2. Fun!
How do you like to kick your heels up? Have some fun with this prompt!

Take a photo of a leaf. Simple!
4. Weekend vibes

5. Sunshine
Let’s make this hashtag shine rays from all over the world! Think about catching some sun flare or bokeh in your shot.
6. Ink
Do you dabble with inks and craft supplies. If you have a tattoo today is the day to share!
7. Flying
Time is certainly flying! If you are going on a plane today remember to click a picture. There are lots + lots of things that fly. See if you can catch an animal in action today.
8. Citrus
Take a picture so fresh that it will squirt citrus juice all over our screens!
9. Purple
The colour purple is associated with royalty, luxury, power + ambition. It can also mean extravagance, creativity, devotion + peace. Show all things purple!

Finding love in the right places. You might find a heart shape in nature, on the side of a bus or on a set of PJs. Take a picture and share with us romantics.
11. Cheeky
Have fun with this one! Show us your cheeky side.
12. Upside down
Think about shooting from underneath or from a new angle. Maybe you can shoot something the regular way but share your photo rotated upside down.
13. Eyes
The eyes see everything. Capture some lovely eyes today. They don’t have to be human. Animals and toys have eyes too.
14. Edge
Edges are everywhere! Side of the road, mountain tops and things have edges too.
15. Animal
Take a photo of an animal today.
16. Toppings
YUM! Give us all the toppings! Might be choices for dessert or a pizza. We will have the lot thanks!
17. Something warm
Baby it’s cold outside! Actually it might not be where you are but take a picture of something warm like a jumper, cup of tea or a fluffy puppy ☺
18. White on white
Can you frame two white things in the same shot?
19. Trust
Trust me this prompt may be a little tricky for some. But think outside the square. Think of a way that you can capture trust in a photo. It might be someone you trust or an item that is strong and stood the test of time.
20. Nature Macro
Here is where we get up close and personal with the flora and fauna. Zoom right in on something in nature and show us how beautiful mother nature is.

Pucker up! Bring all the kisses to the internet today.
23. Brightly coloured
Find the most colourful thing in your vicinity and frame up the perfect shot.
24. Nine
Nine is a FAB number of items to collect for a photo. Or maybe find the number 9 around where you live.

Loads of things are circle or cylinder shaped. Go around with your camera and share something round.
