A Month of Craft Photos

Sometimes when I take my blog pictures I fall into a rut where I’m just documenting my crafts and not making much of an effort with the pictures. I don’t take my pictures creatively. I take them so they clearly show off my work. It doesn’t have to be an either or situation like this. There’s room for both kinds of photos. I just need to work on it so, after seeing some photo a day prompts for January, I decided to come up with a month of craft photos to practice.
Everyday in the month of February I am going to use this list to take a crafty photo everyday. I kept some of the days pretty abstract and vague so there are lots of options to play with. Each day I’m going to photograph my crafts, craft supplies, and/or craft inspiration, but most of the days can be interpreted in a variety of ways within the overall theme. I was originally just coming up with a list for myself so it was very knit-centric, but I thought it would be fun to invite everyone to play along so I’ve attempted to come up with a list that works for most crafts. I even threw in a 30th day so you can skip a day that doesn’t work for you.

A Month of Craft Photos
If you’d like to join in, I set up a group on Flickr for this so it will be easy to share photos. Please feel free to repost and share the photo prompt if you decide to give this a try.

  1. I’m definitely considering this challenge. Normally I wouldn’t stand a chance doing a photo every day, but as they would be based in or around the home, I could probably do this. I will think on it!

    Wow… this might be inspirational enough to get my pictures going. I am absolutely awful at keeping up with my visual aides… and so my blog suffers from the want of pictures. I might try this…. but no promises! (Too bad I can’t draw one everyday. That would be so much easier for me.)

      I think you could use most of these as drawing prompts. That’s actually a great idea for days when I can’t figure out what to draw for my 366 project.

    Ooooh this sounds wonderful (and your prompts are great!). I’m not sure I’ll be able to commit completely, though, since I am basically only home when it’s dark (except the weekends), so it’d be all artificial light photos :/ I’ll try to think of a solution.
