Life has been a little crazy in our house the past two weeks. My goal is to try and post at least once a week but, sometimes life just happens and I don’t have the time. Last week was one of those weeks BUT I’m hoping to make up for that by posting twice this week!
Today I am excited to announce a mini-series I am going to start on Tuesdays. Here is the background to what and why I wanted to do this series. One of the things I have unexpectedly loved about blogging is photography. I usually try to use my own pictures and had no idea how much I would enjoy doing so. If you know me well or just read my blog profile, you know that I have a tendency to go a bit over board when I find a new “love”. I’m discovering that bad habit ends up diminishing my love for things. I put so much pressure on myself to become an expert at something, that it ends up being overwhelming and my affections for it wain. I am determined to not let that happen with photography! So I thought it would be fun to document my journey in learning and practicing photography more on the blog. That kind of already takes place each week since I use my own pictures but this series will be completely dedicated to the pictures.
This project is really more for me than you. Sorry! I hope you enjoy seeing the pictures and I would love your feedback, especially if you are into photography yourself. But, I knew that announcing this mini-series would force me to actually do it each week, which is the push I need if I want to get good at something.
Each week will have a different theme so that I can practice shooting different ways. There are lots of different “photography challenges” you can find online but I ended up compiling my own list to suit my interests and what I will practically have access to. This list takes me right up to around my due date when I will most certainly need to take a blog break. I’m hoping to have some nice photos to show for myself by then.
I hope you do enjoy the journey with me but if you’re more into the things I usually write about, I plan on still posting a more “regular” post on Thursdays! Let the picture taking begin!
