Instagram February Challenge – #28lovelydays

Kim from SHUTTER|bags and I had so much fun with our November Instagram challenge that we are going to do another one. Join us in February for #28lovelydays. Take a photo of something you love each day and use the hashtag #28lovelydays.

You know I’m a firm believer that in picking up your camera everyday you are going to improve your photography. Use this challenge to learn to rock her smart phone. There are a lot of ways you can become a better photographer from your smart phone. Read more in this post – How to use your smart phone to improve your photography.

There is so much in our lives that we love. Let’s share the love and focus on the good in the month of February.


Be sure to follow Kim – Shutterbagusa and myself – Clickitupanotch on Instagram.

The Rules:

– Take a photo everyday of something you are thankful for, post it on Instagram, and use the hashtag #28lovelydays

It’s that simple!

I hope you will join us in this fun challenge that not only will improve your photography but will help you focus on the wonderful things in your life.

So are you in? Leave a link to your Instagram profile if so. Let’s follow each other.

    New blog reader here — I saw your blog mentioned or recommended at least 3 different places yesterday and I decided the universe wanted me to read your blog! I’m excited to join you on this challenge… even though I am an expert iPhone photographer compared to my utter cluelessness with my “real” camera. My instagram name is skerner.

  • January 30, 2014 at 5:15 PM

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I’m in! :)


    This project reminds me of a video (I think it was a TED talk?) about a woman who took pictures of what made her feel grateful every day and it made her notice so many small and wonderful details in her life that she had missed before.

    Since I failed my 365 day challenge already this year. I’m looking forward to this challenge! I should forewarn you, I’m just a hobbyist photographer, my IG is filled with a few minimal personal photos, no breathtaking photography shots of landscapes or anything like that. lol– IG: @missy4reel

    Wow, Nice concept of improving the natural photography. Thank you for sharing these ideas with us. I love to join #28lovelydays for more fun.

  • February 28, 2014 at 8:46 PM

    Can we do another one for March?

    • March 4, 2014 at 12:14 PM

      We don’t have one planned for March. We did one in November last year and this one in February. Maybe we will plan something for this summer :)

  • July 23, 2014 at 3:11 AM

    This is very good concept and it will improve the natural photography standards.
