This is my second year that I have challenged myself to take a picture everyday. I accomplished it in 2009. There were day's when it was last minute picture, but for the most part I tried to stretch myself and take a picture worth viewing. I was very surprised in how much my photography skills have grown by taking on the challenge.
A designer by trade, photoshop is a constant tool. I can manipulate images-very believable. I can bring out colors using processes likeHDRandOrton. And at times, I am happy with an image just the way it is shot.
This year I have joined the groupThe Daily Shoot. Photography is an art and a craft. Getting better at both requires practice—lots of practice. The Daily Shoot is a simple daily routine to motivate and inspire you to practice your photography, and share your results! It’s not a contest and there are no prizes. It's simply about encouraging you to pick up your camera and make photographs.
It really doesn't take a designer or artist to look around and be amazed at the beauty that God created. And to think we only see pieces of the big picture. His creation goes on way past what our eyes observe. We are told about the heavens, but can only imagine. We can only copy and be inspired by the master of creation.
I am considering starting a creation photography group of creation photos. Maybe tag photos with 5th day or 6th day. If you are interested-let me know your thoughts.
