Despite every good intention of taking a photo every weekend (or week!) for The Weekend Photo Project, it simply hasn’t happened, and now I’m going to have to do a major catch-up….
I originally started The Weekend Photo Project as a way to encourage myself to take photos weekly. Being a busy working Mum to 2 kids sometimes meant that I wasn’t picking up my camera for weeks at a stretch.
good in theory, but I really just need to stop and make the time for photography
So I start my catch up session now. Each afternoon, regardless of how much I have left to do for the day, I am going to take 10 minutes to be mindful and make beautiful photos.
If you’re a little bit like me, with lots happening and never enough moments in the day to do what makes your heart sing, I’d love it if you would join in The Weekend Photo Project with me.
I’ve met some wonderful people along the way as a result of this project, and even though we’re a very small group, we really do look out for one another – we’re more like a family really.
Here are some of the places you can share:
Blog: If you have a blog, post your photo there.
Flickr: Add your photo to your Flickr photostream. Create a set dedicated to The Weekend Photo Project and add it to The Weekend Photo Project group. Don’t forget to tag it with #twpp.
Instagram: take your photo… pretty it up! Caption and hashtag #twpp. Share.
Twitter: You can share on Twitter by uploading your photo and adding #twpp.
Tumblr: Add your photo to your Tumblr feed.
Facebook: You’ve a few options here. Simply share with your friends on your own personal page, or you can upload it to my biz page. Add the hashtag #twpp when you upload so that we can see who else is playing along (now that FB does hashtags!)
Pinterest: Add your photo to The Weekend Photo Project Pinterest board. You’ll need an invite to do this, so simple follow the board and I’ll send you one asap.
Wherever you share though, please use the #twpp hashtag so that anyone can search your photos.
Want to check out other people’s photos?
Please do! Leave a comment, a smiley, a link – whatever! Again, the more people we can get involved, the better. Let’s build a community of busy people who love photography. Share your love!!
I’ve missed a weekend…
No problems. We’re all busy folk and sometimes our weekends get away from us before we know it. Just keep an eye out for the next weekends prompt (live each Friday at 2 p.m. on the blog – hint, hint… subscribe so you don’t miss them) and start planning your photo for that weekend. We all understand that sometimes life gets in the way of your lens.
And please share this project with your friends.
If you have any further questions or suggestions, leave me a comment on the blog, Facebook or email me.
Now go have some no-pressure fun with your photography again.
