The #HobbyLobbyChallenge is a photography trend that's spreading across social media right now. Being that in the U.S., natural flowers are hard to come by for photography (it being winter and all), some photographers have taken to going to craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michael's for their photography needs.
The idea is that you take photos of your model using the fake flowers and props at Hobby Lobby and try to make it look like you took your photo somewhere else, such as outdoors. However, when you post the final photo online, you're also supposed to accompany it with a "behind the scenes" photo showing how you staged the photo at the retail store. It's a really creative concept, and it's getting a lot of people out shooting which is great!
My girlfriend was excited to learn about this trend and has asked if we can go out tonight to try it, so it looks like I'll be producing content for the challenge shortly. I'll keep you updated as soon as I have photos to share!
What do you think of this challenge and how it's spurring the creativity of online communities? Do you think you will try taking part in the challenge?
