Over the past couple of years, I’ve let my photo hobby sort of fall by the wayside. I’m sure my skills have lagged a bit, and I’d like to fix that.
So it was a bit serendipitous when I came across this 52-week challenge. Each week is a different prompt in ont of three categories: story, artistic, or technical. They all help you develop different aspects of the craft so you can improve throughout the year.
Above is the first six weeks as an example. You post one photo for each of those using the hashtags #dogwood52, #dogwood2017, and #dogwoodweek[NUMBER] on Instagram. Posting isn’t required, but it’s encouraged to help you put yourself out there.
So I will be working on that this year. Challenging myself artistically and putting my work out there for all to see.
My first image is above. It’s not my most spectacular photo, but it meets the criteria and it’s got some good technical merit. If I were to redo it I’d probably find better lighting and maybe another background.
