365 Photo challenge: Take a photo a day – you will thank us for it later
Why do a 365 Photo Challenge? Let’s be honest. New Year’s resolutions do not really work. We opt to do something, but as time goes by, this activity becomes less satisfying. However, if there was a way to improve your photography skills, would it be worth sticking to for an entire 365 days?
This is where the 365 Photo Challenge comes in. The idea is to take and post a photo every single day. Whether you choose a certain genre to focus on or just shoot everyday things around you, it is a fun way to keep busy. Apart from that, the 365 Photo Challenge offers a number of advantages, so why not start today?
Practice makes perfect
This doesn’t require much explanation. The more photos you take, the better you will become at it. Part of this is getting to know your camera and its capabilities even better. If you are new to photographing and editing, this all becomes much easier with time – just stick to it and don’t give up.
Reflection on the year that was
The 365 Photo Challenge serves as a photo diary so at the end of the year you can look back at the year that was and reflect. It is often difficult to remember what happened during the year with our rushed lifestyles.
Try new things
The 365 Photo Challenge will force you to try different things, as you can’t take the same photos every day. It will push the boundaries and allow you to try different angles, compositions, lighting techniques. A good way to be inspired is to look at the work of other photographer’s right here on SlickPic.
Becoming more observant
When you shoot every day, you will become more aware of your surroundings. You might even see the mundane everyday things in and around the house in a new light. The 365 Photo Challenge will teach you to look at everything around you simply because you have to shoot something.
That perfect photo
Have you ever wished that you were the person that took that beautiful image at the exhibition? If you commit to freezing a moment in time every single day of the year, chances are that you might be a lot closer to having that brilliant image as reward for your efforts.
Need more inspiration?
The easiest way to get started with your 365 Photo Challenge is to grab your camera every time you go out. Alternatively, if you don’t have it with you, simply use your phone. With the advancement of technology, many phones can perform just as well, if not better than some cameras.
