When I started this little challenge, I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. I am never in photos, I totally cling to the other side of the lens and taking selfies… let’s just say it was never my thing.
From the beginning to the end, I loved the creativity and coming up with something that would fit the theme. I wished I could have included one of our pets in every photo because they are so important to us. Maybe next time I will make that a criteria. There were a couple of times that I went back to the drawing board. Not so much the idea, but pulling the photo off.
I tried to limit myself to just one of post-processing and I came pretty close. I used what I had at home to assist me and the best part is, I never once had to leave my backyard. Many a day I would wander out with the theme and challenge in mind just looking for the right angle, the right location and the right lighting.
When I started the challenge, my only criteria was to use myself as a model. Sometimes I used the 10 second timer, most of the time I hauled Karen out to be my shutter buddy. Kudos to Karen, she was always Johnny on the spot for me.
Theme—Growth; Challenge—Use yourself.
15 day challenge, that’s a wrap.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
