Photo Challenge Rules - updated*


(Taken from Saturdays Child Blog)

Okay i thought i'd spice things up a little and have a few rules to this post a-photo-a-day challenge.  Its not meant to be serious so if you dont want to follow them, thats fine.

If you do want to play along then these are what i've come up with so far.  Ill cut them into small chunks so we feel we are achieving something.

All photos must be taken on the day itself, if your camera has a date facility then you could switch it on.  You dont have to write anything to go with the image but some of the rules do ask for that.

Days 1 - 7

Day 1 - free choice to begin with
Day 2 - a pet or if you dont have one a stuffed toy
Day 3 - anything edible
Day 4 - your favourite mug/cup
Day 5 - free choice but this time list 3 reasons why you have chosen it.
Day 6 - free choice but must be in landscape mode not portrait
Day 7 - draw a small picture and take a photo of it (don't worry if you can't draw, nor can I).

*****Update*****
Days 8 - 14 

Day 8 - Must have a 'traingle' in it
Day 9 - anything 'yellow'
Day 10 - anything fluffy but not living
Day 11 - A cloud formation
Day 12 - Anything beginning with 'B'
Day 13 - 2 ingredients you will use in any meal today
Day 14 - The theme of 'time' interpret it any way you wish
Days 15 - 28

@litlemouselilly has come up with some great rules, i think you’ll agree with me that they are going to stretch us and be fun at the same time.


Ok some rule ideas that i came up with:


15.    Treasured childhood possession
16.    Macro shot (close up if no macro setting)
17.   Texture
18.   Looking up
19.   Looking down 
20.   Try a different perspective (e.g get down on the floor)
21.   Weather

22.   Yourself (either an image of you however you want to do it or something that sums you up!)



23-29.  Pick a colour for a week
