Going to do it!!

I participated in the August Photo Hunt.  It was fun, but really challenging.

Which is a good thing.

I'd like to get better and better with photography, and stretching myself is the best way, I think.  :)

So, I decided to take the plunge, and participate this month as well.  Here's the details:

  1. In Disguise
  2. Crisp
  3. Fall Colors
  4. A Jack O’lantern
  5. a Shot from the Ground
  6. a Landscape
  7. a Fall Tradition
  8. Books
  9. Dining
  10. Child/Children
  11. Faces formed in Nature (anything that looks like a face but isn’t : examples here)
  12. Tilt-Shift Photography  (Tutorial Here) (Tilt-Shift Maker here)
  13. B & W with selective coloring (Tutorial here)
  14. Bokeh (Tutorial here)
  15. Best Photo taken October 23rd
  16. Something from the Kitchen
  17. Something Vintage
  18. Something Creepy
  19. Something Golden
  20. A Self-Portrait
Photos should be taken between October 1st and October 31st 2010. You may use a maximum of two photos from your archives — as long as they were taken within the past year — if you find yourself stuck on the 31st without having a photo for a category or two.

You ARE allowed (and encouraged!) to use Photoshop or other photo-editing software as you’d like (it often adds to the artistic quality of the photo).

It is up to you whether you post your photos on your blog as you go or wait until November 1st to unveil them and make it a surprise. Either way, each of you should put all 20 photos in one single blog post or in a single online gallery by November 4th. Please label each photo file in the following manner: Yourname-category.jpg (ex: kristi-something musical.jpg).  You may also want to watermark your photos with your name.

A new post will go up here at on November 1st.  Anyone who completes the October 2010 Photo Hunt will need to add their name & the URL permalink of where their Photo Hunt photos are posted. Everyone who adds their name to the auto-link will have their photos considered for the Favorites. Three guest judges and I will each judge five of the categories (Let me know if you would like to be a Judge!!) .

We will be going through all of the participants’ entries, and will post our favorite photos for each of the 2o items on the list in a separate blog post with a poll for each. Please note that we will not include archived photos in my favorites (it hardly seems fair!). Anyone who votes is encouraged to vote based on their favorite photo, not just for a particular photographer.

Voting is also open to anyone and everyone. The polls are open for up to one month from the time they are created and will be posted throughout the month of November. After all polls are closed, I will compile the photos of all the winners and will display them here on the blog.


There you go!  If you haven't already, why don't you join in this month?  Looks like a fun list.  :)


  1. Good luck!! You're already on your way to becoming an excellent photographer, I'm looking forward to your pictures.

  2. YAY!! I am joining in this month for the 1st time. I can not wait. Thanks for the reminder! :)

  3. You are one ambitious gal! I can't wait to see your pics! Maybe in 16 1/2 years when Livia leaves for college, I'll be able to join in. ;-)


I read and appreciate every comment I get! I will try to either respond by email, or by visiting your blog.

Thanks for visiting! :)
