Have you seen the movie, “Michael”? You know when he challenges the bull? That’s the mental picture I get when people talk about photo challenges.
So I’m doing one.
Me versus myself. Me versus camera. Me versus suckage. Me versus five days a week for one month.
Caveats: I will be on a cruise and therefore unable to blog (I think), so I’ll be skipping ten days. I suppose I should do this through July, then. Am I a wimp or what? Most people do a year; I’m waffling about a month.
Nonetheless, for the next month, minus a few days while on vacaciones, I will post a picture a day. Taken by me. Of something that helps you see my life, because this whole “I wanna not suck at taking pics” thing was precipitated by one thing: I don’t live near my family and I want them to be able to see our lives when we have kids.
My husband says these plants remind him of South America. He’s never been to South America. I think this is SOOC, unless setting the camera to Landscape makes this not SOOC. I can tell you I didn’t do jack to post-process (because I lack the vision necessary to know when tweaking should begin or end) except convert from Raw to jpg. I think I’m in lurve.
The neighbor dogs checking us out. This soon led to cuddling of neighbor babies. *sigh*
Wanna join me? We can do a Flickr Group or you can just post on your blog. Let me know! Do we a need a focus/ gimmick/ theme? If so, I’d like something like, “Life.” Yup, I’m really great at this, let me tell you! My plan was to shoot a photo a day of my life. If I’m here in Knoxville, my life looks like those pics. If I’m in Seattle, well, you’ll have to wait until next week to see.
P.S. How do you peeps with gargantuo cameras travel with them? Gigantor camera bag? I travel with one carry-on and one big bag with my laptop, socks, wallet, Kindle, and various and sundry detritus. Now I’m not sure how to fit this (super awesome but enormous) camera in there.
