need help with keeping up?

Photography challenges are a lot of fun and great for ideas when a little motivation is needed for getting out of those photography slumps.

It can be time consuming to keep up with all the different themes.

Since I already jot down my favorite photo challenge themes in my planner each week, I decided to start a page to make it easier for everyone else to keep up with the upcoming themes. You can find it here and in my menu bar.

I'll be updating the themes every Sunday morning. If you host a challenge that you'd like included, email me at debduty3 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Just trying to make it a little easier for everyone to join in. Hope this helps!


The flowers, jelly beans and party banner photo is my favorite August still life so I'm entering it in the still life standouts challenge. You still have until September 2nd to link up your favorite still life taken in the month of August.

  3. I've just linked up to a challenge after a long time. Challenges can be challenging. :) I've created a list of challenges I visit the most (you can find it here http://www.miracrisp.com/p/photo-challange-index.html) but I haven't done a good job of actually joining them. Great idea to update themes and challenged weekly! That's very nice of you! :)

  4. Barb, It was Mason's 14th birthday yesterday. I found the banner when I was getting some birthday candles at Target. You know it was for my photos. I don't think 14 year old boys care much about party banners!

  16. Thanks so much for putting this together, Deb. It does get a bit overwhelming with all the challenges and memes out there. I'm afraid I'm not as organized as I should be. :(

  18. What a great idea. So many sites list the different memes (which is great), but they don't list the theme. Genius!!
