Now that I have my beautiful new DSLR camera, I wanted to get practising and try to learn some new skills as I am only a beginner when it comes to anything photography related. I researched a little and found this perfect 52 week photography challenge where you are set a challenge every week and can post on your blog or any social media a photo you have chosen to support each one.
Each week, the weekly assignment will be in one of 3 categories:
- Portrait: Portrait photography is really about capturing the essence of a person in an image. A portrait image can range from a classic portrait to candid, or from street photography to a selfie. Each time this category comes up we will dive into a different area of portrait photography. The main focus should always be a person/persons (or maybe a pet).
- Landscape: This category is pretty broad covering both traditional landscapes, and some non-traditional areas such as urbanscapes. Don’t be afraid to really explore your surroundings in this category. If the focus is the environment you are in, it will qualify as Landscape in this category.
- Artistic Impression: When this category comes up, you really have room to express yourself. You can interpret the assignment literally or figuratively. Unlike the other two categories that are more focused, the main focus of this category is to let your creativity shine.
As I have only recently gotten my camera and we are now on week 4 of this year (ALREADY?!) so over the next 7 days I will be posting the first 4 of the challenges that were set.
Week 1. Portrait: Self portrait.
“Start things off with a selfie!”
Just a cheeky little selfie of myself yesterday, I am growing my fringe out so it is super long right now.
I hope you will enjoy following me along this year on my journey of photography!
