Fifty concepts photo challenge

This is just a random photo challenge I made up for myself, and you’re welcome to join in if you like!

My plan is to use a random number generator to pick three concepts from the following table at the beginning of each day, and then try to take at least one photo that day using at least one of those concepts. I’m going to try this for a week and see how it goes; if I’m having fun, I’ll keep going until it’s not fun anymore.

My goal is to stretch my photography abilities.

I’ll be posting my results on social media using the hashtag #50concepts. (Picked because it doesn’t appear to be an existing hashtag.) I’m considering starting a photo blog on WordPress instead of posting here.

If you’d like to give it a try, feel free! Use this list if you like, come up with your own words if you like, change the number of words you pick each day, I don’t care. (Just please don’t start tagging people.)

    1. Unfortunately, I think I can’t make best use of it – I don’t currently have a reliably functional camera with manual controls. But I will certainly keep that in mind if that changes!
