Photography: Red and Pink Theme

February 5, 2019

The month of February usually revolves around a lot of pink and red, as Valentine’s Day is a huge inspiration. Personally, I take the stance of not really caring too much for Valentine’s Day. It’s not because I’m single, so much as it is the fact that regardless on if you are in a relationship or not, you should be showing your love for the ones you care about in your life all year.

However, there are a couple of good things that come from Valentine’s Day. One, being that the very next day, usually all the Valentine’s Day chocolate is 50% off. Two, I love the color scheme for Valentine’s Day. Usually, we see the usual red, pink, and white in many different shades. Or we will see the common pastels that we will see again once Easter comes around.

My Pink & Red Photos

I am very much an amateur photographer, and I have a long way to go. However, I thought I would share some of my favorite pink and red things that I have taken photos of over the past couple years.

My latest project on Pinterest is my LOVE board. The goal is to stick to my favorite pink and/or red photographs and put them together to create another great inspirational board. My favorites are Holiday boards or Home Decor boards. However, I do appreciate color themed boards, because sometimes it can be incredibly satisfying and inspirational to see a collection of the same color in one space. With that in mind, some of my other favorite inspirational boards are below, and I have them linked to their respective Pinterest creators.

What are some of your favorite Pink and Red themed boards on Pinterest? If you have color-themed boards of your own, be sure to share them below. I need some new ones to follow. Also, if you have a color-themed Instagram, I would love to see that too.

I’m really enjoying my Pinterest right now, and I have been putting in a lot of work on developing it. This time last year I had averaged about 100,000 monthly views, and I now average about 2.8 million monthly views on my Pinterest.

Did I Complete My June Photo Challenge?

July 10, 2018

I did it, I did it! I managed to complete all the photos for my June photo challenge. At the beginning of last month, I made the decision to start a June photo challenge, and I was to post a themed photo each day of the month. I have tried a photo challenge before, and it didn’t really go that well. I finally realized that if I really wanted to get one done, I should come up with the challenge myself, and see if that motivates me more.

What Happened During The Photo Challenge

The whole challenge went by without any major issues, but I did run into a snag here and there. I decided to do the photo challenge on my Insta stories instead of posting on my actual Instagram, and that worked relatively well. I saved each day to a highlight(which is still on my Insta profile if you want to go see it), and I occasionally forgot to save it to the highlight on a few days. Luckily my Instagram is set up to backup my photos and stories to my phone so I was able to add them, but if I do this again, I need a better reminder to do that.

I only missed posting on one day, but that was only because I purchased the game Jurassic World Evolution. I got addicted very quickly, and I played the game for about 10 hours straight that day. But I did make up for it, and I posted two photos the next day.

Overall, I really enjoyed this photo challenge. I had something to look forward to everyday, and it was another way to express my love for capturing moments in my life. Yes, I’m most definitely not a professional photographer, but I still love all my photos.

I did have someone participate in the challenge with me this month, and I have to say I absolutely loved her photos. Her name is Chloe and her IG: @photographycnp She was so creative with each themed day, and really kept up with the challenge. I think everyone should go check out her Instagram page, and the rest of her photos from the challenge. Below, I have some of my favorites from her photos. It was hard to narrow down from her photos, but these five really caught my eye.

Would I do this again? Absolutely! My main focus for this upcoming month is going to be my Instagram theme, but I might do another photo challenge in August. If you have any suggestions on what challenge I should do, or you created a challenge and want me to try it, let me know in the comments below.

30-Day Photo Challenge – Littlebit and Patch

May 31, 2018

Hello everyone!

Another 30-day photo challenge, really? Yes, really. I love photo challenges! Whenever I feel like I need something new to look forward to, a photo challenge(or a writing one) always helps me gather new inspiration from my surroundings. Because I am in the process of creating a theme on my Instagram, I plan on completing this challenge on my Instagram story. I feel like that would be the best way for me to keep track of each day, and not interrupt my attempt to establish a theme on my Instagram feed. Which is currently a mixture of black and white and color(it’s a work in progress, okay?). Below I have a 30-day challenge, and I am using it for June, but you can apply it to other 30-day months if you want.
