How to improve your photography in 30 minutes a week

Short of time but long on ambition? Dying to find a way to keep up or improve your photography skills? Need a little creative inspiration? 

Welcome to #foliophoto, a friendly community of fellow creatives working on a weekly photography project to improve their skills. DSLR? iPhone? Android? Doesn't matter. Photoshop? Lightroom? Only if you want to.

The point is to get out and shoot and post it to the Flickr group. Then sit back and get inspired by everyone else's photos. Comments are welcome. Encouraged. Not required though - we aren't THAT bossy.

Every Tuesday Christie of Bedsidesign and I post a photograph that we have taken the previous week inspired by a one word prompt. The prompts that we have used so far include winter, blue, broken, family and heart. This week's prompt is collection and I'll share my contribution in another post.

But I REALLY wanted to share our photos so far - the entire #foliophoto ouevre if you will. Fancy words, eh?

Take a peek.
