Photo A Day | Week Four | January

Fat Mum Slim /

Hello!

Firstly, I want to just say that if this is the first time you’ve stumbled across the photo a day challenge, you’re welcome to play. Just join today or tomorrow. It’s never too late to start.

Oh my goodness. Yesterday I went to see The Lion King with Lacey and it was so good. I bought the tickets months ago, and actually almost forgot about it, but it was the best way to spend a stinking {so stinking!} hot Saturday.

But you’re not here to listen to me rave on about some musical I saw on a Saturday, you’re here to see the new list. So I won’t keep you any longer.

This week the list is designed by Patti Murphy. Hello Patti. Patti designs things, beautiful things, and has a store on Esty {check it out here}. Thanks Patti for loaning us your skills for a week.

+ 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 [email protected]} 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

19. Homemade
Take a photo of something you made, or perhaps if you’re not so crafty – something someone else made.
20. Window
There are windows all about, so try and be creative as possible. If you’re in the City, look up at a big building and take a photo. Or if you’re at home take a photo looking out a window or looking in. Have fun with it.
21. In a row
It could be people lining up in a queue, or something on display, or anything in a row.
22. Collection
What do you collect? Shells, feathers, ornaments, shoes, show what you have a collection of.
23. Something far away
What’s that there in the distance? Take a photo of something far away.
24. Playtime
Take a photo of people playing. It’s a great excuse to have some fun.
25. Black + White
This is our photography prompt for the month. I’ll have a blog post teaching you some great tricks in a few days.

Have some fun this week, OK?

  • Oooh Exciting! I love black and white photography! I just finished the #blackandwhite5daychallenge on Instagram. I am really enjoying the Weekly prompts – it gives me a focus for the week ahead! Thanks Chantelle! 🙂

    • It’s going to be a beautiful prompt. 🙂

  • I think this might be the first time like – EVER – that i’m excited for a Monday. Can’t wait to see all the DIY goodness on IG!

    • Monday is going to be fun. I have no idea what I’m going to take a photo off. Better start creating!

  • I think I’m doing something wrong with the download to my galaxy phone. I click on the link but when it comes to transferring to my calendar all the prompts are transferred but I also get previous prompts too which means I double/triple up then I have to go back through the calendar and delete each extra prompt individually. Is anyone else having this issue?

    • It’s the same ‘problem’ here.

    • Hello. Doug did them a little later this week. They should all be there now. I’m sorry that it was a bit problematic. Eek. 🙁

  • I haven’t played for so long as I have commitment issues – but I am loving the new weekly format so it’s time to dip my toes back in. Hope you’re keeping cool up there… Can’t wait to see the Lion King with the kids – it’s one of my favourites 🙂

  • New Logo looks great Chantelle
