To keep up with my growth in photography I am going to complete an entire 365 day challenge. That’s right, one whole year! You can’t get better if you don’t practice, practice, practice so that is what I am going to do. Every single day for the next year I will take a picture, edit it and once a week I will post the pictures here on my blog. Not all my pictures are going to be good, that’s for sure. But the point of this is to grow as a photographer, not only in taking the pictures but in seeing things differently, seeing things that I wouldn’t normally take pictures of and make it into art, into a memory of some sort. I am really excited to see the difference between this first week and the last.
I am not just taking a picture every day, if I did we would all start getting tired of looking at my kiddos, no matter how beautiful they all are. Instead I am looking up photo challenges. Not only does it give me good ideas but it keeps me shooting different things. I will still use my kids in most of them but not all of them. My passion in photography is to take pictures of kids, families, parents, people. This is going to make me step out of my comfort zone and is going to be a great learning experience.
Week 1 Challenge: I found this challenge on a site I follow on Instagram. They post one every week so I may do a lot of these. I am not overly impressed with myself this week. I took the pictures but I can honestly say I did not give it 100%. I promise to do better next week
(I know there are 7 days in a week but… I cheated)
