I don't know about you guys, but I'm in love with my camera. Whether it be the one on my phone, or my beat ass old cannon with the trigger scotch taped on. I don't claim to take great shots by any means, but I really, truly enjoy taking pictures. I have fun with it. One thing I've recently become addicted to is Instagram. It's only been recently because my decrepit ass only just now shoved off into the 21st century and upgraded to an android phone in February (went with the Galaxy S3 and am in love with it). Hence, I finally have access to Instagram on a regular basis (and no longer have to envy my neighbors preteen daughter with her fancy new iphone5). I've almost exclusively used my phone to take pictures since then... Hmmm....food for thought. Might have to dust off the Cannon during this challenge!
At any rate, I've seen many, many versions of the photo-a-day challenges floating around the interspace, and I thought it might be a fun exercise to try out. I'm looking forward to pushing myself a little creatively, having a bit of cheeky fun and possibly putting myself in front of the camera more (something I'm not very good at). If I can't do that, I figure maybe I'll be able to give myself a pat on the back for just remembering to do it every day :)
Here's how it works -
I've chosen a term for each day in the month of May, represented in the photo above. You can interpret these terms however you want. I can't emphasize that enough. That's where the real fun lies in my honest opinion. Seeing which direction people choose to go.
If you start late, or miss days...honestly, whatever. Feel free to make them up at your leisure.
And if you stumble across this in the future, enjoy and please tag me so that I can see your photos!
I personally am going to try to post each day for a few reasons. 1) I'm hosting this thing, so that'd be kinda lame if I didn't, and 2) my level of procrastination has seriously peaked recently, and I'm hoping this might help instill something to get me back on track...a bit.
You can use the social media platform of your choice (Facebook, Instagram, blog, flikr, etc.) and it's up to you whether you want to share your photos or simply use this for your own exercise.
I'm not going to lie though, I'm pretty pumped to see your photos, and get to interact with you guys in regards to them. I'm really hoping that a few of you choose to join in!
If you choose to share on:
Instagram - use #freakedoutnsmall
Twitter - use #freakedoutnsmall
Facebook - post your photo to either the freaked out 'n small page, or your own personal page and tag freaked out 'n small
That's all there is too it! I wanted to get this out a couple of days early so everyone has time to catch it. If anyone has any questions, or if any of the instructions above don't work out because I'm a goober and screwed something up, just drop me a line and I'll take care of it.
I look forward to seeing your photos!
