It's almost August and I have that itch…that itch to do a photo a day project for a month. I've only been successful with a 365 project ONCE, and frankly, just can't make the commitment again at this time. That's why I love doing photo a day projects throughout the year. They are a good way to jump-start your creativity and pick up your camera. Because you can only get better by practicing! So starting Tuesday, August 1st, I will be hosting August Eyecandy Photo a day Project over on Instagram! Join us!
How to Participate
- Simple: Just check the list every day and take a photo using the prompt as your inspiration.
- Then, share your photo on Instagram using the hashtag #augusteyecandy.
- Go through the #augusteyecandy hashtag to like and comment and be a part of the community.
- Every Friday in August, I will go through and share four photos from the hashtag that have captured my attention.
- If you need an easy way to remember the prompts, CLICK here or the photo above to download it to your computer or your phone. OR just take a screenshot and save it!
