After the success of this summer's 10 day FREE instagram photography challenge, I'm over the moon to invite you all to join me for my 12 day FREE instagram autumn photography challenge! Like last season's photo challenge, this one is really about giving you the framework, support and inspiration to pick up your iphone or camera more regularly, practice your skills and fine tune your photographic eye. Furthermore, this on-line challenge was lovingly designed to allow you to establish a regular instagram posting schedule (sooo important as you know from this post here) and become part of a creative community. In addition, we're going to be working towards establishing a cohesive instagram grid with the aim of making yor instagram gallery irresistable.

NOW THE BEST BITS.....(SEE BELOW)
At the end of each week I'll choose my favourite image(s), I'll mention the photographer of the image in one of my captions on instagram (think shout-out) AND make that person my #instacrushoftheday on instagram stories. It's my way of saying thank you.
Is this challenge for food photographers only?
No! Anyone with an interest in photography can take part. Challenges will be set in such a way that you'll have lots of artistic freedom to interpret them in whichever way you like.
Do I need a DSLR to participate?
No, you can use a regular camera, an iphone camera or anything else you've got to hand.
What if I miss one challenge because I'm busy/travelling/sick? Will I be disqualified?
No, of course not. There's no pressure to 'perform'. It's all about having fun and thinking outside the box. However, if at all possible I'd really recommend you try your hand at every challenge to reap the benefits of regularly taking pictures, fine tuning your instagram gallery and developing your visual story telling abilities.
Will you comment and like every single one of my pictures?
I promise I'll look at all the images submitted and heart the ones that make me smile, but I may not have the time to comment on every entry. However, if you'd like some personal feedback I'd urge you to consider the UPGRADE package mentioned above - it's the one thing participants regretted most not doing last time.
Can I see how everyone else has interpreted the challenge?
Yes you can and I strongly urge you to. I feel it's an important part of the learning process. Allow your fellow creatives to inspire you. And if an image moves you, show your appreciation, leave a comment and let this creative community flourish :).
I can't make this challenge. Will you host another one?
YES! I aim to host a challenge each season with the next one scheduled for January 2018 Please e-mail me at kimberly(at)thelittleplantation(dot)co(dot)uk if you'd like to partake in that one.
I'm not on instagram, can I still participate?
No, I'm sorry. This online photography challenge is instagram based.
I'm already on the mailing list. DO I need to register again?
No, you're good!
- Any more questions?
Just leave a question in the comment section and I'll answer it as best I can.
