Bloom’s Insta-Challenge round 14

Happy Hump Day Bloomies! We want to take a second express our immense gratitude to all of our followers and taggers on our Instagram feed. With now over 20K photos , we are so proud to watch our community expand across a social media site that revolves around what we wake up to create and love to seek out: the photograph.  We are humbled that so many of you have let Bloom into your days and lives and by doing so our corner of the world seems even more intimate and special. THANK YOU!!!

Let’s get down to business and feature a few of our favorites from the GET OUTSIDE Insta-Challenge! Just remember if you don’t see your photo here, we do feature them daily in our IG feed so keep on tagging because you might be the next to be spotlighted on our feed!

If the photos below don’t put you in the mood for warm sun rays and sunshine, we don’t know what will. Get ready to be inspired folks:

We know sometimes themes can be a bit constraining so instead of posting our next instachallenge theme, we are just going to take a bit of a “Spring Break” from the themes and instead, hand pick some of our favorite intagram photos tagged with #thebloomforum here on Everything Bloom! So let the creative flood gates wide open, shoot, tag and come back here on Wednesday, May 21st for more gems from our lovely Instagram followers.

If you aren’t a follower of Bloom on Instagram, keep up with us right here and make sure to keep tagging us with #thebloomforum so we can feature you next!

May 2014 Everyday Beauty with Ginger Unzueta

2014 may EB now open

Join Ginger Unzueta and learn how to utilize light, composition, connections, and details to create memories that will last a lifetime. Ginger will provide heart-filled insight into observing the everyday routines within your home enabling you to capture authentic moments. Additionally, she will present ideas for you to create your own story telling session from start to finish. Finally, she will discuss shooting in public places and the importance of getting in the pictures yourself. This three-week interactive online workshop consists of four assignments, including feedback from Ginger, intended to challenge each student’s abilities. A question and answer section will be provided where Ginger will actively engage with all students. At the end of the course there will be a private section on Bloom where participants can continue interacting and sharing with one another. A PDF file will be provided at the conclusion of the course with all content covered during the workshop.


A DSLR camera and basic knowledge of shooting in manual is recommended.

**All students (including silent participants) will be able to participate in an exclusive Q & A session that will take place with Ginger during part of the workshop.


Inspired by Ginger and the workshop, a group of past students created Cherish The Day, a blog dedicated in continuing to shoot the everyday beauty in each of their lives.

· Wake up your happy house with a plant or two this weekend and while you’re at it, give this super easy concrete planter DIY a whirl!

· France has now made it a major faux pas to send emails after 6pm.  Dear Americans, WHY haven’t we done this already?

· A pretty daily photo blog made of a mashup of two photographers by the same name.

· Lessons in Creativity that include easy moves like “failing as fast as you can”.

· Oh yuck. Maybe we should all be skipping the aisle seat from now on?
