Tomorrow is the start of my 365 day photo challenge and to be honest i’m a little nervous about it. How do you take a picture every day and make it worthy of posting? After wrestling that concept for a few days I decided to let it go and accept that not every day is going to be a great day and not every photo is going to be my best. I see the 365 days as a journey or process to improve how I take pictures.
What ideas to use for the 365 day photo challenge
Here is another big obstacle, what do I take photos of for 365 days? I was going to select one piece of equipment and use that every day and then I thought no that’s too limiting and probably requires more planning than i can commit to. Then I thought why not pick a style or genre of photography for my 365 day challenge. Nah, again it’s too limiting. In the end the best idea of I have for my 365 day photo challenge is to take what ever when ever how ever I can. Use the gear I have at hand and take something that inspires me.
Sharing my challenge on Flickr, Tumblr and even Instagram
I plan on sharing all these photos socially through various channels. I’ll have my 365 day photos on Instagram hopefully posted each and every day. I’ll also update my Tumblr account to include these pictures. My most used social site by far is Flickr and I’ll setup a new album called 365 day challenge.
I’d like to hear from you on what ideas have worked or strategies you’ve used for this challenge. Was it gear related or genre or just simply going out and taking a picture. What inspired you?
