Add a little fun and inspiration to your day! Photo Challenge for 2013

If you’d like some fun daily inspiration I will be posting a picture a day on my instagram @traveling_gypsy every day of the month, a total of 30 -31 pictures  every month. I am going to call it “Photo-A-Day Challenge” for those that’s like to join in on the fun. You can post themed pictures of your own. Just use the hash tag #GypsyPhotoOfTheDay. Below is your first list for the month of January. Have fun 🙂
Jan 2013 Photo Challenge
The photo a day challenges are fun, easy and keep you on your toes everyday! There are no rules. So start letting your creative juices flow! Everyone is welcome to play along and join in on the fun.

Frequently asked photo-a-day question from photo-takers

Why would I want to play?
Well, for starters, All the cool kids are doing it and it’s tons of fun! It reminds you of what is important to you. It helps you notice your surroundings, most that you probably wouldn’t have payed such close attention to on a regular day and helps you be a little creative. In today’s world there are many social media communities full of photo-sharers that “like” and comment on each other’s photos.

What exactly is a photo-a-day challenge? 
Each month I will create a list of words for every day of the month that will help trigger your mind and give you inspiration for your photos. You can use any camera you have {iPhone, Smartphone, Digital, DSLR, Polaroid … seriously anything that captures photos} and use the daily word(s) as inspiration for your photo.
Example: Day twelve’s word is “Love”, take a photo of anything that reminds you of this word, an old couple holding hands in the park, your favorite ice cream, The love of your life’s smile, A new born baby, Your mom’s arms around you, the new color that you painted your nails….basically anything that makes your heart happy 🙂

How do I share my photos? 
You have several options. Select the “share” button to your favorite social media locations. The photo a day community is shared across Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and more.

If you’re sharing on Instagram or Twitter – be sure you use the  hashtag {#gypsyphotoaday} so that people can find your photos.

If you’re sharing on Facebook, you can share on your personal or business page, on your business page or over on The Traveling Gypsy’s Facebook page.

How can I see all of the unique photos that everyone else is posting? 
Ever wondered what is going on in everyone else’s mind? …Well, now you can see it! After sharing your own photo, you are just a click away from viewing everyone else’s pics. You can find them on the social media platforms mentioned before. Browse them, Comment on them, Like them, love them! You are now part of the photo-a-day community. Embrace it! Enjoy it! Share it with the world!

I forgot to take a photo yesterday, I melted my smart phone on the stove, I was stranded on an island with no wifi, What do I do? Have I failed?
Of course Not! This is not a competition, Photo a day is all about having fun! Life happens, we understand. So you missed a day, so what? It doesn’t mean you have to abandon he photo-a-day ship completely. Now you can double your fun by taking two photos in one day! Or you could not take one at all, whichever works best for you. If you skipped a week or two you can always begin on the current day or make them all up and go on a photo taking spree. Remember, there are no rules, jest enjoy yourself.
