October 2011 Photography Challenge

Source: via Merissa on Pinterest


Take a photo each day as listed in the photo above.  Push yourself to try something different for the day.  We’re all learning and exploring together.  You can post the photos as you go each day or post a recap at the end of the week.  Your choice.  Make sure to comment on each other’s photos via Twitter and/or blogs to keep each other motivated.  On Twitter use #OctPhotoChallenge.  On Flickr, our group is titled “October 2011 Photography Challenge“.  Thanks to That Wife to putting together a Google Calendar for us!  This is my first challenge, and I love that it really feels like a community has come together to learn.

You can also add a participant’s button to your page courtesy of White Peach Photo!

To add this button to your page, cut and paste the following block of text.  Make sure the quotes are straight up and down after you paste onto your page.

  1. super excited!!

  2. You rock for putting this all together, I know it’s a lot of work to do. I’ll plan on using that hashtag!

  3. Quick question. So to see everyone’s entries for each day we have to click on their link above? If so, what about creating a flickr group so that we can see everyone’s entries in one place? Just thought it might be easier that way. 🙂

  4. I also have a question/suggestion–what if there’s a button for this everyone could put on their blogs? Maybe someone could make one if that’s what people would want?

    • I’m on it! White Peach Photography,the original creator of the challenge, created one.

      • Oh great! Adding the button to the main page or going to let everyone know where to find it?

      • I can’t get the button to work, I copied and pasted?

      • Sana, check all the quotation marks. Sometimes your computer changes them to the curved kind. They should be straight up and down. Just go through the script and re-type the quotes. That should hopefully fix the problem.

  5. Oh no! When I originally commented, I think I linked to the wrong site! Can I change it from Tiffany Anne Photography to So sorry about that! :/

  6. Is it too late to join? I’d love to participate!

  7. Well boo hoo, I didn’t make it on the participant list!

  8. I’d love to join as well… is it too late to participate? Let me know…

  9. Too late to join? That’s ok if it is, I’ll follow along on my own 🙂

  10. I’d love to join as well 🙂

  11. I’ve been trying to decide whether I’ll be “together” enough to actually participate– and I’m definitely going to take the plunge! I’m excited to see everyone’s submissions, too. 🙂

  12. Oooh I so want in on this, but with so much going on I’m not sure I’ll be able to commit to them all :/

    • I think life is going to get in the way for a lot of us. You won’t be alone. How about committing to catch up when you get behind?

  13. Ooo me too! Can I join as well? This is the first time I”ll be participating in something like this! I can’t wait! This is fun!

  14. I would love to join!

  15. OOOH – I’d love to join this. I’m not great with cameras, but can I give it a go?
