Photo an Hour – what’s it all about?

If you’re here, it’s probable that you’ve seen something about Photo an Hour on Instagram or Twitter, and you’re wondering what it’s all about.

The idea is simple. On a single day, you take one photo every hour. You can upload these to social media, you can put them into a blog post, you could even print them out and put them in an album. It’s fun to document a day, whether it’s a normal, totally banal day at home, or one that’s a bit more out of the ordinary. It’s also a photography challenge!

Once a month, a group of people take part in this photo an hour challenge. On a pre-decided day (usually a Saturday), we all take our photos, and most of us upload them to social media (usually Instagram), using #photoanhour. Then (when we’re up to date), Louisa and Jane take it in turns to write a blog post rounding up the day, including our own photos, and a list of everyone who took part.

It’s a great little community, full of people who share similar interests (pets, tea and books, for the most part), but you also get to see some unusual hobbies as well.

If you’d like to join in, it’s simple:

  • Sign up here if you’d like to get a monthly email reminding you a couple of days before the Photo an Hour day.
  • On the given day, upload a photo once an hour to Instagram or Twitter, using #photoanhour
  • Alternatively, save your photos, pop them in a blog post, and then let me (@itydarling) or Louisa (@duckinadress) know the link, so we can include it in our roundup.

It’s that simple. And you can even add the rest of the dates for 2018 to your diary, as we’ve agreed them already!
