What is a 365 Challenge you ask? Well it’s when you commit to doing a certain thing everyday for a year. In my case it’s a photography challenge. The goal is to help me get better with my camera and take better pics. Now, with that said, I’m only 13 days into my challenge and I haven’t quite taken a pic a day. Guys, let me tell you, this is hard! So instead of giving up on the idea I’ve decided to stick with it in a less rigid fashion. I WILL take 365 pictures this year but some days I make take 2 and a skip a few days of actual photography. I feel like this will still help me accomplish my goal without completely burning me out.
Part of the problem too, is my lack of confidence in stopping the car to take a pic. I am much more confident to do this when I have someone with me, but being on my own tends to be quite difficult. Not to make excuses, but as a child I was pretty shy and still am to a point. It takes me a little while in new situations to warm up. Stopping to take a pic definitely puts me outside my comfort zone. Hopefully this challenge will also help with this as well.
I’m going to try and do these posts on Mondays starting today.
