Photography Prompt #1

Hello again, dear readers! 😀 Today I give you a little photography prompt I made up to get your photo-creativity up and running! It’s super simple, but very rewarding and relaxing.

Here are the photos I took using the prompt. I just laid down in the grass and snapped away! It was really fun.

The whole reason I went out there in the first place was to take pictures of this beautiful tiger swallowtail.

Then of course I took pictures of the cute wittle pink flowers,

And a few creepy-crawlies,

Pill bugs (or roly-polies) look like armadillo bugs up close!

And boring ol’ lawn which is actually interesting.

I messed with the exposure on my camera to get this really neat evening light look.

Guys, mulch and old walnuts can look interesting too.

And lastly but not leastly… this! XD Yes, you can use your zoom as long as you don’t move your legs. 😀

I used this idea several months ago too. It was winter, and I just sat down in a plain patch of bare field, but I think some of the photos turned out pretty well. Have a look!

This is the boring patch of ground I took pictures on. Blah, right?

I really like this picture for some reason

Even dirt can look pretty!

Not so boring after all, right? That’s why this is fun. You get to look at all the little details you normally miss. And you don’t have to just take pictures – you could take your sketchbook or just look.

Do you think you’ll use this prompt? Would you like to see more photography prompts?


P. S. I’m working on my birthday stuff post, but it may take me a while because of all the reviews I’m doing!

    1. Aww, thank you heaps, Ellie! That’s so sweet! I’m glad you like the “boring” ones because I do too. 🙂 Yay, I’m glad you liked it!


  1. NEEAAAATO!!! 😀 With my ‘luck’, if I lay down in the grass, I would most likely get a bunch of chiggers! Hehe! No, it does sound like fun!! 😉 It really sounds cool… 😉 😀


  2. Ooh, what a cool idea! I’m totally going to do this. 😀 I love the picture of the pill bug! Tiny things are so fun to photograph. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Sally! Yep, they surely do! You can notice so much that you usually miss if you just take the time to look. That’s why I love photographing tiny things – you can show people a part of the world that they might never take time to look at. Thanks for commenting!
