Add text to your iPhonography | Weekly Photography Challenge

This weekly photo challenge is deigned to complement our free online photography basics classes. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.


You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.

Also try to think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.


If at any time you’d like a critique of your images then please feel free to email us.


Text and imagery go hand in hand, we see examples of it everyday from the morning news to the free newspaper we read on the way to work.


Using the right font with the right imagery can be a tricky art form to master but this week’s photo challenge is all about having fun.


You could call this week’s 2nd photo challenge an introduction to the juxtaposition of text and images.


One iPhone app that I’ve been playing around with the last couple of weeks is Tiny Post by Beeem Inc.

Really all Tiny Post does is add captions to your images and enable you to share them on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. The thing is just that it does it really well and there’s some great fonts available.

You can be funny, profound or just plain offensive….it’s up to you.


You could start of being obvious and just stating what things are but where’s the fun in that?


Try and be creative and I’d love to see what you come up with. Tweet a picture to me @memorygate or share on Facebook at


Here’s a couple of images that I’ve created…….enjoy!
