** I am posting a little early and then heading to bed, I will stay up for a bit, but it might be morning before I get to any questions** Hello MOCers! I’m excited to be the host of today’s challenge! I love to take photos and I love to be pushed to get creative with them, so I jumped on the chance to host a photography challenge this year. When brainstorming for how this challenge would work, I talked to my daughter about it and she immediately steered me towards the “take your mirror outside” challenge that was trending on TikTok this spring. I looked at some of the examples and was just in awe of the creativity I saw! So many cool things you can do with mirrors! Now, I’m not going to require that you take your mirror outside, but I do want you to use a mirror creatively in your photo. See what’s reflected in mirrors you have hanging in your house, play with photos in your car mirrors, experiment with small handheld mirrors, even take your mirror outside if you want… just use your imagination! Here are a few example photos I’ve played around with… I also found some great articles on the internet with other examples for inspiration: https://expertphotography.com/mirror-photography-ideas/ http://photographyblogger.net/19-nifty-car-side-view-mirror-pictures/ https://solarpoweredblonde.com/creative-mirror-photography-ideas-and-tips/ https://www.awesomeinventions.com/beautiful-reflections-of-nature-through-a-mirror/ Here are my sample layouts for this challenge (I had so much fun playing, I couldn’t stop at just one!)... And this fun example from Carol (@Iowan)... Challenge Requirements: This is a photography challenge, so your page must include at least one photo. You may add more photos, but the main photo needs to include a mirror where the reflection is the focus of the photo. Your mirror photo must be new. Additional photos on the page do not need to be new. You must include scrap product on your page; it cannot be just a photo. Have fun! General Requirements: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish. Pages must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).
