Picture a Day | Week 1

There are two recurring themes in every book or article I read about improving your photography skills and that is to take your camera everywhere you go and practice, practice, practice. There is a community out there in blog land called The 365 Project where people with a passion for photography hone their skills and document otherwise forgotten moments in their life by committing to take a picture a day for a year.  Someday I would love to do that, but at this time in my life I have too many other responsibilities, priorities, interest, etc to take that on.  However,  I think I can commit to a picture a day for a week and then who knows, maybe I can do additional weeks in the future.  Even a week of focused picture taking will help me improve my skills.  My goal is not to search out amazing subjects but to take pictures of everyday items and/or activities in my life, working on the lighting and composition provided at the moment.

Here are the results of my first week.

  1. My sister did this every day in June. Lucky for us her kids Max & Elly were the subject of many of the pictures. Since they live in Tanzania it was we were given a glimpse of their everyday activities.

    Great job! I’m just starting up this challenge again after letting it slide for over a year. The first time I didn’t make it a full year. I’m totally cutting myself some slack – you sound like you’re taking a very reasonable approach! It’s fun to find someone else working a project like this to keep one motivated.
