Instagram challenge 2014

Instagram Challenge | September Colour Announcement

To bring you up to speed, the Instagram challenge is designed to keep our photography flowing throughout the year, in the form of creating a nice collaborative rainbow. Each month will have a different colour theme. I'll announce a new colour monthly and then showcase my favourite shots on the blog at the end of the month.

If all goes according to plan, I think we'll be able to paint a beautiful spectrum on Instagram through the year, which you can watch unfold by searching the hashtag

#kittyandbuckcolor

I'm so excited for September, mostly because I got to photograph a banana... It's spring here in Sydney and I've already been spotting yellow blooms around the place. Whether it's spring or autumn where you are, I'm sure you can find pops of yellow all around you. Share your best finds on Instagram using the hashtag

#kittyandbuckcolor

and add your work to our feed.

If you'd like to spread the word, feel free to grab this button to share on your blog.

I'll be announcing the September colour in the next few days, so feel free to get some extra green shots in before then.

I'm hosting this Instagram Challenge all through 2014, where the intent is to refresh your view on the world around you by searching for the month's theme colour. Hopefully we have the added bonus of improving our phone photography skills, too. Each month I will announce a new colour, and all you have to do to take part is tag your coloured images with #kittyandbuckcolor. At the end of each month, I'll feature a few favourites on Kitty & Buck and at the end of the year, I imagine we'll have a lovely rainbow streaking through Instagram!

Instagram Challenge | July Recap

July's colour of turquoise took me on a virtual tour of the summer waters of Greece. A special mention must go out to Debbie from In Whirl of Inspiration, who has dazzled the #kittyandbuckcolor feed with the beautiful turquoise waters of the Greek Islands. What a delight. Amongst her glittering sea were a wonderful array of all things blue and green, I've collected some of my favourites below.

Instagram Challenge | May Colour Announcement


To bring you up to speed, the Instagram challenge is designed to keep our photography flowing throughout the year, in the form of creating a nice collaborative rainbow. Each month will have a different colour theme. I'll announce a new colour monthly and then showcase my favourite shots on the blog at the end of the month.

If you'd like to join in, there are no rules, other than using the hashtag #kittyandbuckcolor and taking a snap (or multiple snaps) that predominately features each month's colour. You can create a scene to photograph, or walk around your town and find new places that show off the colour of the month. Just use it as an excuse to exercise your creativity and photography skills!

The color theme for May is {black/brown} - It might seem gloomy at first, but think of all the wonderful things that are in these rich shades... crushed velvet, deep forests, moist earth, chocolate, tree bark and so much more. This month might be a challenge for some but embrace the richness and lets see what you've got!

If you'd like to spread the word, feel free to grab this button to share on your blog. You can resize it to fit your sidebar by changing the width and height values in the code when you copy it to your blog's sidebar. (just keep them the same so it stays square!)


Find me on Instagram @kittyandbuck - I'm looking forward to seeing your beautiful photographs! Remember, if you are private, let me know your username in the comments if you'd like me to see your pictures and I'll follow you.
