I have looking for something to get me interested in photography again as I have lost my passion to go out and take photographs. I have over the last few months, had so many other things that have got in the way, that my photography has suffered and I have stopped taking photographs.
So over the last few weeks I have decided to take my Digital SLR everywhere with me in my backpack, so along with my iPhone, I will have a camera with me at all times ready to shoot.
In order to spark my creativity I have decided to set my self a challenge to take and publish 1 photo a day for the month of January. I had contemplated doing a 365 Photo challenge, but I wasn’t sure that I would keep it going that long, so have decided to try it for a month and if i keep it up then I might try to carry it on for longer. One of the things I didn’t want to do when starting is to be under pressure to take a photo, which stifled my creativity. I still want it to be enjoyable yet challenging, as I have often see some 365 day challenges on Flickr that are poor, because the photo is forced and lacks creativity. A poorly taken photo of a random object because it matches a theme was not the way I wanted to go.
So I have cheated a little and only started today, but I have some photos to post that I have taken over the last few days to make up for the first few days of the month, but the photos from now on will be taken on the day of publishing.
