Photography 101

Swarm

Finally, I found a swarm. You may not remember or weren’t following me when I participated in Photography 101 (Day 18) offered by the Daily Post. It was a 30 day challenge (weekends off) with a new challenge word each day. Swarm was something I couldn’t find in my archives or that day of the challenge. I alluded to the fact that when I did find a swarm, I would post it. Today is the day. (more…)

Photography 101 (days 22-26)

One day late, but I made it! My family went on a camping trip and then celebrated Thanksgiving away from home. So, I wasn’t up and current with this weeks themes. I was happy to see that many of the themes work well with photographs I took on our trip. We had such a great time and I made sure to carve out time during the “golden hours” in the early morning and late afternoon to enjoy my surroundings and work on my photography skills I have learned this month.

Thank you so much for reading these lengthy posts, I really did have fun putting them together. Happy Thanksgiving.

Photography 101 (days 15-19)

Now for week 3 of Photography 101. I am really enjoying the themes each day and writing too. I continue to learn and grow and appreciate the continued support of my readers and family. I know this is a long post, but it is a great exercise for me each day. Thanks for following along.

Photography 101- Days (8-12)

Days 6 and 7 were over the weekend, there were no direct themes associated with these days. I am enjoying this month-long challenge. I enjoy thinking of images in themes like this and using images that first come to mind when I read the theme. Although, with my schedule as it is during the week, there isn’t really time for me to take a theme related image most of the time. These images are all very recently captured. Here are this week’s posts.

Day 8- CONNECTION

Photography 101- (Days 1-5)

The Dailypost started a new month-long challenge this month, Photography 101. When I started this blog, about 7 months ago, I thought I would be writing a lot. I am writing, but where I find myself gravitating towards is learning as much as I can about photography. When I saw this opportunity, I signed up.

What I didn’t think about was how I would merge it into my blog. I am so excited about the new challenge I am participating in, hosted by Captivate Me, called the One Four Challenge. I love participating each week in the Monochrome Madness challenge hosted on Leanne Cole’s Blog and many weeks I find I take part in the Weekly Photo Challenge hosted by The Daily Post as well.
