This week, the theme is to:
This challenge is perfect for those photographers out there with children of their own - or children they can borrow (nieces, nephews, neighbors) for a photographic session.
Watch the children at play. One minute they may be laughing and playing and the next minute in tears. Photographing childhood is the closest we get to photographing honest emotions.
If the children are not your own, remember to get permission from the parents first before photographing!
Or this could be that this theme makes you a bit nostalgic for childhood. Find and arrange some of your favorite momentos into a photographic still life or visit a childhood haunt. Post photos of memories or reminders of childhood. If you don't have momentos, take a trip to an antique store - I always seem to find something that reminds me of my youth.
You could even try this week to photograph as if you were still a child - that means getting down low and seeing the world as a child would see it. You may even get to play with the toads yourself!
This week, photograph childhood as it is or as you remember it to be.
Post your photos on your favorite platform with the tag #photoyogachildhood We will feature some of the best and creative photos next week on PhotoYoga.
