30 days 30 photos

I love taking pictures. But...it's easy for me to fall into the habit of only taking photos for tutorials and blog related things. Really easy. Those photos are easier for me to take, and I can feel relatively successful with those shots.

Lately I've really been thinking that I need to get back to improving my photography, and being better about taking more pictures. So it was perfect timing when I found Sherry's list of suggested items for a 30 day photo challenge:



I'm only a few days in, but already I feel so encouraged and inspired to do this more often! I'm even editing my photos with actions and adjustments that aren't usually my thing. Being a little adventurous like this is good! Here are a few shots so far:

30 Day Photo Challenge: Self Portrait

30 Day Photo Challenge : Clouds

You can watch the collection build in my set on Flickr. And there's still time to take the challenge! You can catch up, or just start from now. Trust me, you'll feel a sense of excitement about the project!

  3. Casey, why do you think I look so shocked in the self-portrait? That was not the best day for taking photos of myself!

  7. Thank you so much for this list, Mollie! You're right, I'm only taking photos at the moment for blog-related things, so doing this challenge will be fabulous! =D

  8. Thank you thank you thank you.

    I've always loved the Project 365 stuff- but I have NO diligence in me. Thirty days of diligence? I think I can do that!
    Looking forward to my 30 days and yours.

  9. I love the idea :) I also start to only photographing projects or me making projects. I still have to decide if I'm going to do it or not! I have so many things planned and don't want to end up like I always do: not doing anything xD

  16. Oh, I love this! My "real job" hours are being cut to part time and so, while job hunting, I'm going to be completely bored... My photography has fallen to the wayside recently... This will be so fun to get things going!

    By the way, a friend recommended your blog to me and I couldn't be happier. It's so cute and you have a great blogging "voice." Keep it up!
