What is the project about?
The Home Life photography project is loosely based around the 1 day 12 pics concept and takes place over the first full weekend of every month. The idea is to document your home life in photographs. No posed pictures, just photos of your family doing what they do every day to preserve a record of your routine for one day a month.
The original 1 day 12 pics concept asked people to take one photo an hour over twelve hours, but this project is a bit more flexible. Carry the camera round with you and take photos when the opportunity presents itself and if you end up with more or less than that number it doesn’t matter, just use it as a guide. I would ask however that you don’t link up posts that have less than 6 images in them. There are plenty of other great link ups where you can do that and where it would fit better.
Shooting candid photos doesn’t mean you can’t be creative with it though and I hope to create a small community of creative photographers who can share their ideas with each other every month so we can all be inspired by each others work.
Great, how do I join in?
Every month the Friday before the Home Life Project, I publish a blog post which will give you a creative challenge of the type of photo to try include that month and how to achieve it. There’s no obligation to join the challenge, but I hope it will provide us all with a new photographic idea to tackle and of course a reminder to take photos over the weekend!
Then join other participants by taking photos on the Saturday or Sunday of that weekend depending on what suits you best (you could also do a weekday if you want!) You can link up the blog posts containing your images to a post that will go live at 7am on the Monday.
The link up goes live at 7am on these days in 2016…
