With 2019 on the horizon, I thought it was the perfect time to throw myself into another photo quest. The last quest I ran, back in August, was a great success and quite a few of the people who took part will be joining me on the next adventure too.
Are you interested in taking part? Here are a few more details:
A photo quest is a photographic scavenger hunt. For the 2019 challenge there will be both daily and weekly challenges. The beauty of it is that you can choose which path to follow - one photo every week, one photo every day or simply just dip in and out as the fancy takes you. To make the most of it, however, I would strongly advise that you take part at least once each week. The challenge will be to photograph something on each day or week to fit the assigned theme. I have called it a quest because it will involve a search for specific images rather than simply being a generic "photo a day" challenge.
Fantastic! Last time around we had 44 people signed up which really did make it a fun and supportive exercise. To join us, please sign up using this link.
I want this to be a fun challenge but, yes, there are one or two rules. First and foremost, photos must be taken during the same day/week as the challenge i.e. you cannot post "that great shot from my holiday that I took 6 months ago". This is the key point of the quest - it is meant to get you thinking, inspire and challenge you. There really is no point in taking part if all you do is go back through your archive.
Adventures like this are so much better when they are shared. Everyone likes to receive nice comments on their images - even more so if it has been difficult to fulfil the challenge that day. Sign up via this link to receive updates about the challenge and then share your photos with the Copper & Blossom photography community - share your progress, share your enthusiasm and support others who are in the same boat.
Absolutely! Just be sure to #hashtag your images so everyone else can find them. The specific hashtag for the quest will be #photoquest2019
Below you will find the first week of themes for the 2019 Photo Quest. Please note that the quest will begin on 31st December (simply because it made more sense to start on a Monday!). Take a look and get your thinking cap on. I have deliberately included subjects that are open to interpretation.
Each week, a new challenge photo album will be created on the Facebook community page. Please upload your images to the relevant album and take the time to like and comment on other peoples photos. Keep an eye out too for everyones photos on Instagram under the hashtag #photoquest2019.
Good luck! I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Don't forget to have fun and experiment. Take a look at the list above and start thinking about which themes you can use to push yourself to try something new. Maybe it’s a technique that you would like to try out or a different location that you would like to visit.
I'll see you over on Facebook...
