Tutorial Tuesday
Are you ready to take some of those photography tutorials we have all been collecting and finally use them?! Join Branson of My Reflection of Something and Ashley Sisk of Ramblings and Photos for Tutorial Tuesday!
Tutorial Tuesday
Branson and I have a couple of things in common: One is that we both love to learn about photography from the amazing resources that exist out there in bloggy land. The other is that we both love to share our knowledge and experiences, and have a passion for teaching! So, this year we are teaming up to bring you an opportunity to learn right along with us!
Tutorial Tuesday will give all of us a chance to push ourselves to try new things, while gaining feedback and support from this awesome community! Each week we will choose one tutorial, alternating between shooting and editing, and work through it together. These tutorials may be ones that we have found around the web (hello… Pinterest, anyone?) or ones we have written ourselves. However, they will all be tutorials that both Branson and I have worked through. We will share our end results with you each week, and then give you the opportunity to do the same!
The beauty of photography is that no two photos will be the same. We can all work through the same tutorial, and yet come up with a wide variety of images. We can’t wait to see that creativity each week, and are sure you will inspire us and teach us along the way! We will be kicking off this challenge next week with a shooting tutorial. Want to get a head start? We will be using the wonderful tutorial from Rosie at Leavesnbloom Studio that teaches us how to build a lightbox. And here are the guidelines for the challenge, if you would like to prepare your post ahead of time.
  1. Use the tutorial of the week to either photograph or edit your entry. The goal is for us to learn and grow together, so the image should be created for this challenge (not taken from your archives).
  2. Feel free to share multiple photos, as well as helpful tips and tricks you learned while completing the tutorial! We all have something to teach each other.
  3. Link directly to your post for the challenge or the photo in your Flickr stream…do not link to your blog’s home page.
  4. Please include either the challenge button or a link to the challenge in your post, so that others know where to join in the fun!
  5. Don’t forget to visit the other participants, and leave some comment love! As usual, the more you participate the more feedback you will get!
  6. The linky will open on Tuesday, and close the following Monday…you have a full week to work through the tutorial and share your results.
  7. If you would like to share a tutorial for a future week (from your blog, another blog, pinterest, etc.) please email Branson.
If you have any comments or suggestions for us, we look forward to hearing from you! Oh, and because I can’t have a post without a photo… how about a previously unshared shot from a couple of months ago. It perfectly ties into the Mortal Muses’ current musing theme: winter in black and white. I’m actually musing today so click HERE to read my post (it will launch at 1:01 AM EST) and leave me a little blog love. See you next Tuesday!
