I absolutely love this idea from Joy Kirr! (Joy got the idea after seeing this.) After I saw it, I couldn’t wait to include it in a Phun Phriday post! Instead of “selfies” (pictures of yourself), you are challenged to take “shelfies” (pictures of you with your book collection). I think it’s great how Joy has made it into a contest with 3 different categories. And, of course, the prize is a book! I’m going to build on the idea a bit here, and tie it into another interesting book photo concept. Artist Nina Katchadourian has a “Sorted Books” project, which is compiled of photographs of certain books together. Each photograph conveys a certain message with the book titles.
So, I’m going to challenge my students to do a “Sorted Books Shelfie”. Check out the example below!
