I've been thinking for a while now about creating a challenge. And why not mix my two favorite things in life!? Beauty and photography. As some of you know I am a photographer on the side. But my creativity for things like this are horrible! Each month we will have a different theme, and your challenge is to incorporate the theme into a creative photo!

 

This challenge is going to be a little different, because you won't be creating looks! Starting in April, but I'd love to get your input and if this is something you would be interested in participating in. I thought about doing prizes and voting, we can still vote for the best if you guys want. But with all the legal jargon needed for prizes I decided I didn't want to mess with that. I might send  unicorn mail throughout to those who participate often though 😼 PS- They make for great filler posts on your social media too. And active participation in the forum, reviews, and gallery ( don't forget to post your challenge photos there too!) can possibly help your chances of getting gratis...like those two beautiful perfumes I got as a gratis below *wink wink*.  

 

The challenge and "rules"-

1. Flat lays and staged photos only. I'll post examples below. But no faces or people allowed in your photos. (Though you can include photographs).

 

2. All photos you take must be your own. 

 

3. Post as many images as you want, you have a whole month to get creative with each theme. Post one, post everyday, doesn't matter.

 

4. Let's talk gear and products! Tell us about your image. List the products and colors, talk to us about your concept and how it came to be, taken with your phone or DSLR? 

 

Here are some helpful reads- digital-photography-school dot com/flat-lay-photography/  and digital-photography-school dot com/tips-for-getting-started-with-still-life-photography/

 

Here are some of my example images I've taken in the past-

@sister13  Oh gosh just the sound of this fragrance is delicious!!! I’m sold on the perfume as well;) 

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Yes, from the reviews, some people really hate it and get the sour milk note, I just get a sharpness which ultimately I guess makes it perhaps a little more interesting than if it was a straight up sweetly gourmand scent. @heartsmyface 

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

@sister13  I’m so curious now… I’m going to check to see if my local store has this one so I can find out who’s side I’m on.  Sour or sharp:D ?

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Yessss! Do Tell me what you think if you find it!!! @heartsmyface 

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

I like the very last photo the best, @sister13 ! The color, and the ice, too!

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Thanks @tsavorite !! 

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

it looks delicious @sister13 . Your drink reminds me of Rumchata. Have you tried it?

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Ohhh, yes, I have! My friend turned me on to mixing RumChata and Fireball over ice, which is delicious!! I think I need to pick some up again! @makeitup305 

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Great shots @sister13 When I have sunlight like this, I run to collect all that needs to be shot.

Re: A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge

Thank you! Yes! That sun was really coming in just right!!

@Samtian thank you!! Good thing because I'm not organized enough with my time yet to really devote to finding inspiration, and my phone camera is 👎 😂
