2012 – the year of the monthly photo challenges!

2012 Photography Project, Photo Challenges

A week or so ago I asked for some help for a photo challenge for next year. Thanks to Mui and Jina I feel like I’m on my way for some thing a bit more creative next year!

2012 starts with the A-Z

Mui suggested doing an alphabet soup challenge. What’s that? Photograph objects that resemble the 26 letters of the alphabet. Mui and I will both be attempting this challenge in January 2012! Between 1st January and 31st January we’re going to aim to complete the alphabet. Feel free to join in if you feel like challenging yourself. I’m a little scared and nervous and already frantically looking around for objects that resemble any letters. I have a feeling it’s going to be tricky but in a good way. Looking forward to it.

What comes after January?

Jina suggested doing a different theme for every month, just to vary things a little. That’s another thing I can get behind, but just need to think of some themes now. I’ve got January down, just need something for the other 11 months of the year. Though, I’ve got a bit of time to think those through. Again, if you have any ideas, throw them my way. I did a 30 day black and white photo per day challenge. While I’m tempted to repeat that next year, probably a bit later in the year. Similar monthly projects are along the lines of what I’m thinking…

Want to join in?

I always feel like the more people who are doing similar photo challenges to me, the easier it almost feels. Like having a mini support group. So, if you want to join in with me, feel free! In fact, I encourage it. For my own selfish purposes of course.

The run down

So here’s what I’ve got planned so far for next year.

  • January: Alphabet Soup (With Mui)

If you’re joining me in any of these, let me know, it’d be great to team up. Now to get my


  1. I think I’ll be going again for 2012 – it seems weird not to after doing it for 2 years.

    I may need the challenge idea though so get me through!

    How about a rainbow month – each week, you have to have a photo which represents a colour of the rainbow and just repeat for the whole month.

      • Well, it’d be red, orange, yellow, green,blue, indigo and violet but I guess we don’t have to do them in order (or do we?) providing we get all the colours in one week.

        I did two colour weeks this year – red and blue. I was thinking of doing yellow and green too, but I didn’t for some reason. That could be another month – like whole weeks of colour. Or a 7 weeks worth of rainbow colours.

        I’m just rambling now.

          • Time! I thought first of taking one photo at the same time each day, but then I thought mine would be the same each day! So maybe excluding sleep hours, take a photo that covers each hour over a couple of weeks (like 7-8am, 8-9am etc.)

            Maybe the favourite things meme that was on LJ, but I can’t get onto LJ at the mo.

            • I like time! Well, the theme of time. Might take a photo in the same spot at different times of the day over the course of a month…

  2. I am quite excited about doing alphabet soup. That is not to say that I am not slightly apprehensive, but I do enjoy a challenge πŸ™‚

    • Ooo, thanks for the link Jina! I shall have a peruse. For some reason it won’t let me see the link on my work pc πŸ™ Boo!

    • Great! I’ll post soon on some more themes. In the mean time if you can think of any more themes, please post away!

  3. Oh my, those theme sound like fun! I just learned about photo challenges, and would love to try it out. πŸ™‚ So I begin tomorro, I guess!
