Considering Joining?

“Each of the arts whose office is to refine, purify, adorn, embellish and grace life is under the patronage of a muse, no god being found worthy to preside over them.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

:spotlight-left: Current Prompts: High Speed and Anguish:spotlight-right:

Ever feel the itch to photograph but feel like you can't motivate yourself to take photos, let alone think of an idea? That's where we come in! We'll provide you with prompts and inspiration, and you can share whatever photos you took with those ideas; perhaps soon with prizes for the best submissions for each prompt. If you ever feel like you could use inspiration, or even want to share your own with others, YourPhotoMuse is for you.

Everyone is welcome to join, regardless of whether or not you're a photographer or even plan to submit to the galleries. If you're just someone looking for a muse or looking to inspire others, we'd love to have you!

Don't hesitate to join just because the current prompts don't suit your tastes: you can always make suggestions for the future, and we'll be doing more than just prompts: like interviews, quotes, features, contests, and more!


:spotlight-left: Don't like the current prompts? Just submit to the "Non-theme Photography" folder to share your other work!

:bulletblack: Limit to "Non-theme Photography" folder is 2 submissions per week.
:bulletblack: Standards are higher for the Non-theme folder than for the prompt folders, so choose carefully!

Group Info

Many of us photographers need inspiration to get going. And that's exactly what YourPhotoMuse is here for: to provide you with quotes, features, interviews, contests, and most importantly, weekly/monthly prompts to get your creative genius flowing--and you might even win some prizes with your submissions along the way!

And now, for the new technical prompt: High Speed Photography

"In common usage, high speed photography refers to the photograph itself being taken in a way as to appear to freeze the motion, especially to reduce motion blur. This requires either a very vast shuttering system or a flash."

So, for our new theme, we want you to submit photos that capture motion with the least blur possible. Make sure you don't confuse it with long exposure photography, which captures movement over the span of time--in fact, I wrote a FAQ awhile back that give examples of both high speed and long exposure photography! (Link below)

If you're inspired by our prompt, we'd love if you could mention us in your artist's description so others can see and be inspired too :)

Whether it's water splashing, your pet dog running, or a baseball flying through the air--get out there and capture some motion! :aww:
