A 6 month photographic challenge

6ish months ago when we were catching up with some friends in Twizel, New Zealand conversation drifted to how irregularly we take photos and a challenge was set; ‘Let’s take a photo a day for the next 6 months’.  That’s a lot of photos!

I started off with such good intentions, this is the photo that I took that February day;

It has been an interesting and fun challenge, making me look at my days a little differently.  Of course I have missed a lot of days, or taken a lot of photos on some of the days, and it is really nice to have some photos to look back on.  Time goes so fast, it is nice to stop and capture a wee moment of it, I have added 1 photo from each of the months below. Hope you enjoy them,

Two birds on a Boat, Korcula - April 2011

Korcula in Bloom - May 2011

 The majority of the photos that I took in June, July & August were ‘work’ photos, the challenge with these has been learning how to catch our jewellery in the right light and setting.  I discovered the neighbours window makes a good prop for taking photos of earrrings.

    I had never been naturally very good at taking pictures so this year I splashed out on a new DSLR camera and signed up for a photography course with the Open University to help me take better pictures and even edit them after to correct/improve them further. I have really enjoyed getting to grips with the camera but still have a long way to go to become really good, which is fine as I only wanted to take better snaps not do it for a living 🙂

      Fabulous! I would love to learn something about taking photos, up till now it has always been just ‘playing’/experimenting which is fun too, I like the idea of a more focused approach to my photography – excuse the pun!

    I forgot to say though, I like the idea of the daily challenge! A few people on our course have started posting daily challenges for those who wanted more inspiration, then it’s just finding the time to do it! lol

      Yes! where is the time? I was doing quite well when I carried the camera round with me all the time but have been using it at work a lot and leaving it there for the most part. Will take some photos today – reinspiring myself!
