May Photo A Day List 2019

Fat Mum Slim /

So, I don’t know if this is a little bit crazy or not, but I had an idea for photo a day for this month. I thought we could do photo a day, but make it FASHION.

I have a vision board at home and for four years now, {yep, FOUR} I’ve had a note up that I wanted to do an outfit a day in May… but I never did it because I didn’t like the way I looked enough, and didn’t have the confidence and put myself out there, and I just kept telling myself “NEXT YEAR” and to be honest, the idea of it still totally freaks me out… but I am going to try it. Maybe I’ll do it every day, maybe I won’t… but I won’t know unless I rip off the Bandaid and just try it.

The list for May is rainbow month, so it doesn’t have to be specifically fashion or outfits, so if that’s not your thing… you can absolutely go ahead and be creative in anyway that suits you. But if you do like a little fashion or mixing things up, you could take a photo each day and use the colour as inspiration for your outfit. I have asked two of my friends to help out {they’re a fashion blogger – Hello Kim-Marie and a fashion designer – Hello Ali Lennard}. They’ll be picking the Fab Four over on Instagram, so keep an eye out for them there and be sure to say hello.

So without any further ado, here’s all the details on how to play. I hope to see you this month over on Instagram or in our Facebook group.

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 WHITE, so all you have to do is take a photo of something white – think clouds, something you’re wearing, a white building, a marshmallow… whatever is white that you see!
+ 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.
