During the Coronavirus lockdown this year, I wasn’t able to meet up with some of my creative friends as I usually would have, and I’m sure many of you found yourselves in the same situation.

Pre-lockdown myself and two friends used to set ourselves creative challenges such as working with paper or drawing, and then we’d show our creations to each other after a dinner shared at home, or over coffee and a chat in town.

We were badly in need of a creative boost, so we came up with the great idea to have a remote challenge, and the activity we chose was photography. I love taking photos with my phone when I’m out and about on my walks and so I was excited to take part.

We each came up with a different theme to photograph over the course of three weeks and the three photography prompts were concrete, pattern and ‘doesn’t go there’.

I’m not a photography expert, but I really enjoyed this challenge and here are my photos:

A photography challenge is a great way to spark your creativity as it encourages you to slow down and notice everyday items and routines a bit differently than you normally would. The group photography challenge definitely helped me to appreciate my local area a lot more as I couldn’t travel far to take photos during the lockdown.

Ever since the group photo challenge, I’ve been keen to push myself a little bit further creatively, and so I’ve come up with a 30 day photography challenge to share with you. I’m both nervous and excited about completing the challenge myself, but I’m looking forward to it and I’m making a commitment to taking a photo a day for the next 30 days.

Hopefully, you will find this 30-day photography challenge of interest to you and I hope you try it! Even if take some of the prompts from it that appeal to you, and make your own unique photo challenge, that would be amazing. I will update this blog post once I’ve taken my 30 photos to let you know how I got on with it, and if you decide to take part please let me know x.
