January is usually a quieter month in the photography world, so last December I decided January would be a good month to do a photo challenge … a themed photo each day for the whole of January, which I would post on Instagram. What a great idea! (or so I thought!)
January turned out to be one of my busiest months yet, and I had to abandon my challenge half way through.
If you haven’t followed me on Facebook or Instagram, here are just a few of the photos I did take.
So this January I am going to try again … why you might ask?
I absolutely love being busy, I love meeting you, getting to know you, and capturing some beautiful photos of you, your family, your children. It’s what makes my job so amazing, and what makes me wake up with excitement every single day (oh ok, most days!) … but you see, you all book me for the work I produce day in day out. You book me because I have photographed your friend, or your business colleague, or you have seen my blog, or my post on Instagram; and what you want is something similar.
Which leaves me with little space to be creative, to try new things, to step outside my comfort zone as a photographer and try new techniques, new equipment … essentially to be able to offer you, my lovely clients a little bit more.
And therefore I’m going to try again … but this time, I’m going to try a slightly different challenge – a photo a week for the whole of 2019. Fifty-two photos, fifty-two challenges, and a blog about each one. As I write this, I am beyond excited! I can’t wait to get creative, get some ideas bouncing around, and testing my ability to produce in a photograph what my imagination can create in my head. I am also looking forward to letting you guys know the girl behind the lens a little bit better, and to interact with you more through my blog and other social media platforms.
So here is a list of all my photographs for next year, week by week. Some are going to challenge my skills and techniques as a photographer, some my imagination … but most of all, I’m hoping to have a lot of fun!
Now, I’m going to dig out my highly underused tripod and start taking some photographs. My first post is going up on the 4th of January, so keep an eye out for it.
