Personal Photography

Personal Project – A Week In Review

Back in the day during one of the time periods I used to blog often (I started blogging back in 2001, yep, that long ago!), I’d post photos I took over the course of a week. It motivated me to photograph daily and there was a sense of satisfaction of seeing how my week looked through my photos.

So I’m planning on picking up this old tradition and will do my best to commit to it on a weekly basis. I want to do this personal project to not only improve my photography and reflect on my week visually, but to also show you my photography isn’t perfect.

My photography is far from perfect. My photos aren’t staged. My photos don’t have perfect lighting. My photos aren’t heavily processed. My photos aren’t shot with a DSLR camera. My photos are just moments of my everyday life that I take with my phone or point & shoot camera.

A lot of people struggle with photography because they get so caught up with the technical side of it. But it doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. We can focus on being creative and enjoy the process of experimenting with photographing our life. We can focus on photographing the world around us, wherever that may be.

So, how are you working to improve your own photography? What’s challenging for you? Let me know in the comments below!
