Photography Scavenger Hunt

by Amy - May 14, 2020

Are you ready for some extra photo fun this month? I sure am and we hope you are too!

Since National Scavenger Hunt day falls in May we thought it would be fun to have a group Photography Scavenger Hunt! 

Photography Scavenger Hunt

A photography scavenger hunt follows the same format as a traditional scavenger hunt... there is a list of items that you will go on the hunt for, but, instead of collecting the items you will be photographing them! 

Over the next week or so we want to encourage you to explore both indoors and out, observe the details big and small, be as creative or literal as you like but most of all have FUN!

Here’s the List:

  • Sunshine
  • Fibonacci 
  • Sign
  • Begins with “C”
  • Heart Shaped 
  • Something Metal 
  • Color Yellow
  • With Hands
  • Rough Texture

Once your hunt is complete and all the items photographed you will compile those images into a collage. 

The collage will be your prompt photo for National Scavenger Day on May 24th.

Challenge Round

Not ready to let the photo fun end? Than the Challenge Round is for you!

Instead of collecting photos of items this time you will be practicing techniques. 

Here’s the List:

  • Bokeh - that dreamy effect you get when shooting with a wide-open aperture like f2.8 aperture or wider.
  • Pattern - repetition of lines, shapes, tones or colors.
  • Golden Hour - period of daylight shortly after sunrise or before sunset when the light is at it’s softest and most magical. 
  • Reflection - the use of a reflective surface to create an image.

Once you have all of your techniques photographed just like before you will compile the images into a collage.

Add your Challenge Round Collages to the Scavenger Hunt Album in our 365 Picture Today Facebook Group by May 30th.
