I know House of Cards (season 3) is coming out this weekend and that most people will be snuggled up in their homes in front of Netflix.


Your creativity is calling you this weekend. It’s time to get your butt off the couch and go make some photographs.

Thus, a challenge is born. The team at The Framing Department would like to challenge you to a weekend-long Shoot & Print challenge. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make lots of pictures this weekend with the goal of making 5 (just five) prints on Monday.

Just take pictures of your day-to-day life this weekend. Going out to play in the snow? Bring a camera.  Chopping up veggies for dinner? Grab the camera. Taking the family out for ice cream? … you get the idea. Just make pictures of this weekend as if you were trying to capture all the beauty of an average couple of days in your life.

Then, edit all your photos down to 5 (just five) images that speak to you the most. They don’t have to be the sharpest, most technically “correct” pictures, but they do have to speak to you, to move you in some way. Make prints of those 5 photos. You can do them at Wal-Mart for 30 cents each or you can bring them in and work with us.

Submit a photo of your 5 prints together to our Facebook page by midnight on Monday, March 2, 2015 . Include #ShootandPrint in your post.
For example…

“Sometimes you just gotta #ShootandPrint to win free framing and get off your butt!”

The winner will get their five prints framed and matted on us. That’s at least $500 in custom framing for FREE. All you have to do is engage your creative juices for a weekend and make yourself a few prints.


Ready? GO.
