May Photo-a-Day: Photography Prompts for Instagram

Photo Ideas for May

It might be a few days late, but the May photo-a-day challenge is here!  This month, it’s all about springtime and finding interest in the little things.

You can use these photo prompts to spark your imagination and create an awesome Instagram feed, or simply to help you become more comfortable with your camera.  Try one every day to create a May time capsule of photographs.

If you join in on Instagram this month, be sure to use the hashtag #WFMay to share your work and to be featured on the @wonderforest feed.

Have fun and I can’t wait to see what you shoot!

  1. I love the Photo-a-day challenge. Coming up with beautiful images for my blog has proven to be a difficult task. Even just taking one picture a day (regardless if it is on the list) would help create richer content for a later time. I personally like that you dedicated May 14th to taking pictures of mothers. That is going to be what I look out for tomorrow. Thanks for the idea.
