Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

From Above. Change your perspective on something. Share a photo of a subject which you shot from directly above. This plate of cheese from the Langhe region in Italy was interesting when I tried to take a picture of it, but when I took it from above, it became even more clear how the honey laid in a neat pile in the center of this circle of cheese and how each wedge had its own identity. For those interested, you started going clockwise with the cheese at 12, and they were all delicious. :)

Find a subject and instead of taking a picture from in front of, at an angle, to the side, or from behind, take it directly from above! 

In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means FROM ABOVE to you!


I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.

  1. I photographed great moments of my day yesterday, including a story my son wrote at school to earn him compliments from the principal, and a wonderful fortune cookie!
    How “Oh, no!” turned into “Yeah!”

  12. That’s a good perspective, Sara… one gets the complete picture and that’s quite a selection of cheese, though I’ve never thought of using honey as a complementary taste.
    My subject is about natural beauty :)http://wp.me/p1wyZM-wH

    May 3, 2013
    • @Nature – if you haven’t had honey with cheese, stop everything and go do it now! I never really liked honey but I love it with cheese.
