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. Thanks Cynthia! And sorry about that loading. I m still learning and the plugin for ‘Like’ is new so I’m not sure if there is a problem with that or something else. I’ll look into it. Thank you for informing me!

      1. Thanks for your prompt reply Sara! I’m so glad I can still participate. I’m getting used to but is my first love. I have learnt so much and made so many friends here!

    1. @Belladonic haze – The challenge is to post a new post in response to the theme! Please post a new post, not one from your archives.

      1. @belladonic – I’m definitely not offended, just reminding you (like I remind others, nothing personal!) Looking forward to seeing your new post in response to the challenge.

  1. Such perfect timing! i started to practise my food plating photography this week. Here’s my first ever food plate photo (shot from above, of course), and my post for the Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above, plus…to start a new “genre”, the post included the creator of the food plate (presumably, also the chef) — wouldn’t you want a photo of the chef or the cook with the food plate photograph?…To whet your appetite, the food plate shot from above can be viewed by clicking the url below, happy weekend!

    1. @Jude – Make sure you post the link to the exact blog post URL so people can find it later, and as your new content shows up on the front page of your site! :)
