As a natural light photographer living in Colorado, the time comes when it's a little too dark and a little too cold for portrait sessions. As my slow season begins, there are good and bad sides to it. I get to really enjoy the holidays with my family because I'm not swamped with shoots and editing. However, that lull can really dampen my creativity as well. Of course I'll be taking photos of the beauty of the holidays, but it's important to keep my artistic eye engaged.
That's where social media is such a boon. Even when I don't have a scheduled photo shoot, I can create a project to share. There are myriad ways to approach a photography project. You can explore one specific theme, take a picture every day for a year (365 projects), take only self portraits, and many more. For my photo project, I've decided to do a 52 week project with a different theme each week. One year of training my eye on a different subject every week.
It took a little while to find a list that I really wanted to tackle. But I finally found one and I'm chomping at the bit to get started. So am I posting my first week's photo for you? No, and here's why. Every journey is enhanced when you've got traveling buddies. So I'm inviting you to join me on my journey. Every Monday, beginning on November 18th, I'll post the weekly theme. Then, I'll be posting my take on it here, on Instagram and on Facebook that Friday. I want you to share your pictures on my Facebook page too!
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! So what do you say? Let's do 52!
