A Photography Journey
In January, I decided to try my hand at a project and work on developing and practicing a new skill. I took on a 365 day photography project that I am sharing via my Instagram account.
1 month into the project and I am so happy with the outcome at this point!
I decided to follow Bethadilly’s prompts because I am really inspired by her work. I have already gained so much in the last 33 days:
- a community of like minded Instagrammers encouraging one another
- lots of practice with my camera and taking it off Auto mode – I challenged myself to use my camera as much as possible versus my phone
- stepping outside my comfort zone in an attempt find interesting things to photograph
- discipline to follow a daily practice
There are definitely days when I struggle to find inspiration or the time to take the picture, edit and then put it back onto Instagram. I certainly have a ways to go before finishing, but everyday that I complete another picture, I am proud of the work that went into it. I encourage anyone and everyone to find a practice or hobby and dedicate time everyday to it. The benefits and rewards far outweigh the challenges.
