moments in june | an instagram photography challenge

Instagram is my favorite social media outlet and I’m constantly working on perfecting my photography there. I’m obsessed with following travel, lifestyle, and photography accounts, and I love a creative shot. I’m also convinced that Instagram has helped me when it comes to using a DSLR because finding patterns, unique objects, and different poses has become second nature. Who would have thought a smartphone app could be so helpful? Because of this, I’m participating in my own June instagram photography challenge. This challenge will be all about little moments, lighting, leading lines, and other creative photos. So instead of the usual photo-a-day challenge, this one will be based more on improving photography skills. Being excited is an understatement!

Instagram Photography Challenge

I’d love for you all to join me in this Instagram project. All you have to do is follow me on Instagram, pay attention to the daily prompts, and use a few hashtags so other Instagram addicts can participate. Let’s have fun and work on our creativity together!


The whole month of June!
