 Exploring with a Camera
Kat at The Kat Eye View of the World hosts the linkup called 'Exploring with a Camera' on her blog. 
Exploring with a Camera is to get people having fun and exploring the world around them with their camera. We do our best work when we play creatively. She posts a bit about a concept she's playing with - a design element, a subject, a technique - and invite others to join in and share their interpretations. The best description is probably on this page on her blog: View. She posts a new exploration every other Thursday, and the link up is open for almost two weeks to give people time to really explore the theme. She also invites contributions to a Flickr Pool, and feature photos from the pool on her blog during the theme. It expands our learning and view to see the world through others eyes too.

 Back to Basics
Halie over at Shutterscapes hosts the linkup called 'Photography Basics: The Art of Composition' on her blog. According to the book (The Art of Composition by Bert Kragges which inspired the meme), the exercises in the book were designed to help photographers to develop their skills in composition and perception. The basic rule is to shoot your photographs in Monochrome (from camera and not shot in color, then converted to black and white). According to what I've read, it will help one enhance his/her skills in perception and recognize elements like edges, spaces and the relationships between objects without introducing the more complicated elements of manipulation of hue, intensity of color and the likes. The exercise is geared towards the use and hopefully the mastery of lights and the play of shadows in a photograph.

Photo Friday
Andrea over at Milestones and Memories hosts the linkup called 'Photo Friday' on her blog. She has included the details of her linkup: My link up party is every Friday and called "photo friday."  I am a very new beginner photographer and just got my first DSLR camera.  That said, I try to highlight something I am learning about photography or my camera each week, sometimes have a guest photographer share some photography insight, or just display my "week-in-review" photos.  The link up highlights others anything-photography-related posts from that week.  It is fairly new and I am currently going through the 12 week photography course from two peas in a bucket with each Friday being a new lesson from that series.

She has included the details of her linkup: Though many are doing a photo a day and link up every week, anyone who would like to share a photo from their week are encouraged to join in the fun.  The goal here is to BE INSPIRED whether you do a 365 or join sporadically.  The challenge is to take a photo a day and every week link up and share your project with others. It’s quite the task but a lot of fun and at the end of the day, we’re all learning so much from each other. Each week, Tracey will be picking the favorite 5 photos to highlight on the blog. In order to be a winner you must add your photo(s) from the week (not a collage) to the Flickr! group: Be Inspired - 365 days in pictures.  The top 5 are chosen based on entries that week, not where you are in your 365. Linky opens Saturday for photos taken the previous week (Saturday-Friday) and remains open until the following Friday. Happy shooting!

 Hump Day Hollah
Heidi over at Heidi has a Hobby hosts the weekly linkup called 'Hump Day Hollah' on her blog.

What better way to greet the day that brings us halfway through the week than to Hollah!? The challenge is nothing more than to send in a favorite photograph that you took, preferably this week so far but anything is really fine, and submit here for your chance to win... yes.... a highly sought after " High Five from Heidi"! Photos will be judged by myself or friends or neighborhood kids or whoever drives by my house as I drink wine on my porch on Friday night (winners may be posted on Sat. morning-see "drink wine on porch section of post"). ***I actually just made the deadline Friday at 11:59 pm so it really will be Sat.! Here are some guidelines: 1. Anyone can participate using any camera-edit or not.
2. Try to take the photo this week but I will not be policing this-I just like a little no pressure/no stress uplift halfway through the week..bring on whatever you can!
3. Link up here-that means to grab a "Hump Day Hollah!" button for your post and  then add your post to the list below. 4. Leave a Hollah! (enthusiastic greeting/amplified expression) for other participants because, doggonit, it is affirming and fun and interactive.

Photo Tip Tuesday
Jaymi over at Live. Love. Travel. host the weekly linkup called 'Photo Tip Tuesday'. Included are the details of this linkup: The idea behind Photo Tip Tuesday is simple.  I have learned so much about photography and editing from reading blogs and I know others love to learn tips and tricks as well.  On Photo Tip Tuesday, you can link up as many photos as you like and simply share something about how you took the photo or how you edited it.  Your tip can be anything from a full fledged tutorial, to simply sharing what lens you used, what your camera settings were, or perhaps what action you used to edit your photo.  And please never think that you don't know enough to share a tip or that you aren't advanced enough to teach others.  People read blogs from all levels of photography knowledge, and the simplest of tips can help one another.  

My goal with this link up is for people to visit others, learn, share, and make new friends.  The link-up will be up from Tuesday to Thursday and I will post my favorites sometime over the weekend.  It might be my favorite photo, or my favorite tip.  I hope you'll stop by and link up!
