My May Photography Challenge

Over the years I’ve come to the conclusion it is vitally important to be involved in a creative pursuit, an opportunity to ‘re-boot’. During the last few months I have turned my creative energies towards photography, keen to improve my skills.  Whilst ‘chopping off heads’ is a ‘skill’ of the past, I have plenty of room for improvement.

Browsing through pinterest I found a few photography challenges, a great way to help me focus, however none of the challenges were quite ‘me’, so I’ve tweaked and added. Realising my interest is in specific areas I focused my challenge there; my family, our bushland and landscape.  Over the month of May I’m planning on sharing some tips and my photos (I really am an amateur) via either a daily or weekly update.  Are any of my readers interested in joining in?  If so I’ll set up a linky party.

    I'd sure be interested in joining in but my blog is in a serious state of disrepair at the moment… will look forward to seeing your photos though. The interesting thing about a challenge like this is the interpretation.

    This is a great idea, Erin:-)

    I'd love to take better photos. I'm a terrible photographer, at the moment, but, if you decide to go ahead, I'll join in and see if I can learn something:-D

    Hi Erin

    I am with you on this one although internet Access is extremely limited here. If and when able I will join in 🙂

    We have just been given a SLR camera that I am keen to learn how to use.

    I would love to know more about your resources as well.

    I am a serious amateur and would love to know how to drive a camera so that my captured memories would give me pleasure instead of frustration.

    In anticipation of learning with you this month.
