#30dayphoto : Day 25

Today’s challenge: anything you want! I love these shots. Not that I don’t LOVE when 30+ people submit photos but sometimes a smaller set feels really awesome. Your favorites? Mine’s #14.

Tomorrow’s challenge: playing with shadows! I’ll be traveling all day tomorrow so please get your photos in by 12pm EST so I can try to get the post done while I’m waiting for my plane/bus/ferry ride. Happy shooting!

#30dayphoto : Day 24

Whew. Another late post. I’m in Illinois and don’t have great Internet connection. There is a chance that for the rest of the challenge, they’ll be going up late because I’m on vacation! I’m sure you all understand :) I absolutely love these color schemes! Great job, all. I also wasn’t able to access my spreadsheet with all of your website/blog links so please comment below (with your #) if you want others to know which photo is yours!

Tomorrow’s challenge: whatever you want. Submit by 4pm EST because I’ll be driving back to Ohio all day anyways!

#30dayphoto : Day 23

Today’s challenge was to take or submit a photo of a childhood memory. Mine is a photo of nail polish. When I was REALLY little, I would pretend that each bottle was a person and as I got older, I just always kept a huge basket in my room. I love looking at these photos because they’re clearly tied to each person’s memory. Which one is your favorite?

Tomorrow’s challenge: your favorite color scheme. I’m excited to see these! Please submit by 12pm EST. I’ll actually be in Illinois (which is Central Time) so the post won’t be up until early evening. Happy shooting!

 

 

#30dayphoto : Day 22

Someone you love. I killed two birds with one stone and snapped a shot of my husband Adam and my grandpa. Both are men that I love a lot. I really feel love when I look at these photos. The shots of people feel like they have a level of comfort that you can’t achieve with a model or client.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24

Tomorrow’s challenge: childhood memory. I think this collection may be the most interesting set so far. Please submit by 12pm EST. The post will be up early evening!

#30dayphoto : Day 21

Today’s challenge: sunsets. Obviously, if you are shooting real time, there is a really small window of time where you’re able to capture a sunset. It’s always fun to take photos early morning and right before sunset. I love the lighting. Anyways, meet the photographers:

1 | 2 | 3  | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21

Tomorrow’s challenge: someone you love. I’m sure we’ll see a nice range of humans and pets. You have until 12pm EST to submit. The post will be up early evening.

#30dayphoto : Day 20

I cannot believe we’re already on day 20! Only 10 more “challenge days” left. Today’s challenge was: whatever you want. These days always create a fun set because the variety is so diverse.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19

Tomorrow’s challenge: sunset. I’m excited to see all the colors in tomorrow’s set. Please submit your photos by 12pm EST! Sidenote: has anyone viewed these 30 Day Photo Challenge posts in an iPad? They’re REALLY pixelated (unlike any of my other posts) and I’m trying to figure out why. Anyone have any insight? If I can find a solution, I’ll export the sets again and re-post.

#30dayphoto : Day 19

Well, I’m about 40 minutes late. The day has ended and I’m just now getting this post up. It was one of those days where I seriously never stopped and now my brain feels mushy. BUT I’m glad to be posting this now because these shots are AMAZING. I love the color schemes. Seriously my favorite set. Thanks for all being patient and not calling me a loser for slacking, you’re all my pals.

Tomorrow’s challenge: whatever you want! I already have some submissions. You have until 12pm EST to submit. I’m estimating the blog post to be published around 6pm EST as I slowly piece it together throughout the day. Only 10 more days after that. Isn’t that crazy?

 

#30dayphoto : Day 18

These weekend posts always get up a little bit later than I plan but better late than never! Today’s challenge was to depict emotion (which in my opinion is the best subject). What do you think? Favorites?

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16

Tomorrow’s challenge: landscape. Interpret it however you’d like. Starting tomorrow, my schedule is changing. I’m picking more hours up at work and next week I’ll be on vacation. I’m extending the deadlines for the rest of the month until 12pm EST (like on weekends) but my blog post won’t get posted until that evening. So please submit your landscape photo by 12pm EST on Monday. Then the blog post will go up tomorrow evening. It definitely has it’s pros and cons. I think others (nonparticipants) see the post more when it’s published in the morning but this also allows you to be out shooting throughout the day (real time). I don’t think this will inconvenience anyone because you can still submit your photo as early as you’d like! Thanks for understanding.

 

#30dayphoto : Day 17

Who knew street lights could be so gorgeous? Loved the interpretations and the contrast of the day/night shots. Which ones are your favorites?

1 | 2 | 3 | 4  | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16

Tomorrow’s challenge: depicting emotion! I think of all the days, I’m most excited about this one. I love photographing landscape, objects, architecture, etc but none of that can really compare to photographing human emotion. I look forward to seeing all your posts! Please send by 2pm EST tomorrow (so you have a LOT of time to shoot…almost 26 hours!) The post will be up a little later than today’s since I have lunch plans.

#30dayphoto : Day 16

Experimenting with light is one of my favorite photo exercises. I love the variety of light sources in this set and it makes me even more excited for a shorter photo challenge this fall/winter where we can learn about settings, time of day, cameras, etc. Which ones are your favorite?

Tomorrow’s challenge: street lights. This, to me, is one of the most specific challenges of the month but I’ll be interested to see how you all incorporate street lights into your shot (whether it’s the main focal point or in the horizon). Submit by 12pm EST tomorrow since it’s the weekend!
