HSMSHS, this coming week is having a 'Project week'. A mini project that lasts just 5 days. If you are a regular player, a little change in our set up will inject a little variety hopefully into your photography. If you lurk on our blog and have never played along before, this is your chance to jump in!
Play along on all 5 days or dip in and out as time allows.
HSMSHS 'Project Week' - 5 days - July 13-17 - Tell Your Friends !!! Nature's Beauty - Day 1 We're having a little shake up in our routine this week and decided to have a project week! 5 days, 5 prompts but all with one common theme - 'Nature's Beauty'. There's no end of inspiration at this time of year. You can step out into your garden, local park, beach, field, mountains. Snap the flowers, trees, landscape, people, animals. We will be giving you all 5 of this weeks prompts today, so you can have a little time to prepare. Please link your contribution (directly please to the photo not simply to your blog) as at the end of the week we will be producing a gallery of images to be posted here on HSMSHS of all contributions. By linking your photo in the comments section you give approval for us to post the photo on this blog. So, Here's a brief outline of the project ..... Nature's Beauty All 5 prompts from this week will come under the over-arching theme of Nature's Beauty. However, for each day there is a sub-heading which are as follows : Monday - Yellow Tuesday - Green Wednesday - Purple Thursday - Pink Friday Red If you would like a little extra challenge, try some Macro photography. Most cameras have a macro setting, and if your camera doesn't you can always use your photo editing software to crop to give the appearance of a macro shot. To help wet your appetite we are providing a few links.
