Every month, we create photo challenges for our Facebook Photobug Community to share their favorite wedding photos. We’re constantly blown away with the submissions and photos shared that we wanted to change things up. Because burnout is on the rise and it can be hard to stay creative every single month, we wanted to give photographers the chance to create for themselves.
That’s right. This month we asked our community members to share photos they created just for themselves to stay inspired and protect their creativity. Scroll down to see some gorgeous photos captured by our Facebook Photobug Community and some amazing stories behind them.
Posing Cues Causing Laughter
“The moment I took this picture, the father of the groom was laughing and yelled from far behind, “What are you doing with that antelope’s head?” The groom said, “The photographer asked me to!” Sometimes, this kind of situation that happens on the field can be a burden and a challenge at the same time. Do you feel the same?” – Elizabeth Tiffany
Documenting Every Part of People’s Lives
I’ve had the honor of documenting this beautiful human (Ryan Baker) over the past year as he transitions. It’s truly been one of the most fulfilling projects and a wonderful meditation on masculinity—because, what does it really mean to be a man? – Ryan Chard Smith
Naming Images For Yourself
This is one of my earliest portrait shoots, yet it remains one of my favourites. I’m not much of a person to name my photos, but this color palette, model’s dress, and the anxiety my friend felt during that period of time reminds me of Vesper from Casino Royale, and that’s what I call this scene.” – Bartosz Filipek
