Happy New Year!

How are you? I want to say that I hope you’re not nursing a hangover, but I hope that at least some of us are and have had the most awesome night to end 2014.

Hangover or not, it’s time to kick off a whole new year of photo-taking. This year the lists will be released each week, so you can play for a week, for a month, for a whole year… you choose!

Everything you need to know on how to play is below, but pop any questions in the comments and I’ll get back to you.

Photo A Day Challenge | Week One | January 2015

Here’s all the juicy and necessary details on how to play

How to play on Instagram

+ check out the photo a day list for the daily prompt
+ use your phone or camera to take a photo using the prompt as inspiration
+ upload the photo to Instagram, add a caption {you could mention the day and the prompt in the caption}, add the hashtag #FMSphotoaday and then publish.

+ check out the #fmsphotoaday 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 my attention from each prompt. Check my feed {@fatmumslim} to see the photos.

How to play on Facebook

+ check out the photo a day list for the daily prompt
+ use your phone or camera to take a photo using the prompt as inspiration
+ upload the photo to Facebook – you can either share on your personal page, on your business page {if you have one} or 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.

+ 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 my attention from each prompt. The photos are made into a collage, shared and pinned to the top of the group.

How to remember what the prompts are

+ 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.
+ 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.

A little more about the prompts

Some people like a little help with the prompts, and interpreting them into a photo. There are no rules so take a photo of whatever you like, interpreting the prompt into whatever you will. Here’s what I was thinking when I created the list:

WEEK ONE | JANUARY | 2015
1. The sky
Happy New Year! Look Up. Snap a photo and share your first photo of the year.
2. Something yellow
Find something yellow as you go about your day today. Is it a banana, or the sun or is that other yellow thing that you saw?
3. Me today
Take a photo of you. It can be creative {your feet, your shadow, your reflection} or as straight-up as a selfie!
4. I hear…
What can you hear today? The ocean? The kids laughing? That annoying bird that keeps chirping outside your window. Snap a photo and share it.

And off you go. Take your first photo and share it. I’m sorry {not sorry} if you accidentally get hooked on this photo-taking gig. xx
