Based on all that we have learned about photography from Randi Strunk (photographer – Bright-Side Photography) at our May 29 meeting, we are going to have a challenge for everyone to practice their photography skills over the summer. Try out some new skills and tips while photographing your quilts or other sewing adventures.
The rules will be simple …
Just use the hashtag on Instagram #smqgphotochallenge and be sure to describe which of the challenges below your photograph is portraying/using. If you don’t have an Instagram account, just email your photos for the contest to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them for you and enter your name for the random draw.
- Photograph your quilt with its inspiration (child, artifact, etc.)
- Quilts doing what they do best – Quilts in Action
- Quilt Selfie (you and your quilt)
- Best way to display a large quilt without a person holding it
- Quilts in nature
The challenge will run from Sunday, May 29 until Friday, August 26 with winners announced at the August 28 meeting. The winners will be selected from random draws.
For inspiration, here is a great quilt photo from our very own Patti!
