I don’t think I can quite explain in words how much I enjoy co-hosting these photo challenges every season, and this one was no exception. Kristi and I have been working hard behind the scenes to try and make this challenge enjoyable for you all, I hope we succeeded in doing that because we certainly have had a great time browsing through all of your beautiful, inspirational photos again this season.
It has been wonderful to see both new participants this Autumn and also those faces that we’re starting to recognise as regulars. Thank you, all of you, this challenge wouldn’t be what it is without you.
In case you missed any of them, Kristi and I took turns to share a few tips and tutorials each week of the challenge:
- Reflecting upon your Own Personal Photography Journey – Live and Love Out Loud
- Backlighting Tips – Bumbles & Light
- Conveying Warmth in Photography – Live and Love Out Loud
- Creating Backlit Macro Photographs of Fall Leaves – Bumbles & Light
- Children’s Lifestyle Photography Tips – Live and Love Out Loud
