Maui Photographer Personal 52 Week Project
I have decided to do a 52 week photography challenge.
Now that the holidays have gone and the new year is upon us, my busy-ness has subsided a bit. I really love photography, but in the hustle of the Christmas season, photographing just for sheer pleasure and not for money took a back burner. With this 52 week challenge, I hope to hone in on my style and craft a bit more.
I sometimes feel like I’m all over the place.
What is a 52 week project?
A 52 week project is basically a program of weekly photo exercises that help you to flex you photo muscle. I thought that maybe I would just make it a point to take out my “real” camera at least once a week, extracurricularly. I was hoping to just go where the wind blows me and shoot whatever is going on when I have my camera out. I think that’s a great start, but I need to challenge myself even more. I decided to join up with a little community on instagram called P52 Clicks.
P52 Clicks does 12 monthly themes, 12 techniques and 1 photo a week. Another common 52 week project is done by taking a numbered list of items and shooting those once a week. For example, the theme could be green, minimal, bokeh, close up, sun flare, home, etc.
Fifty-two items or techniques to interpret the way that I see them.
Fifty-two opportunities to grow in my photography.
January’s theme is low light. The photo below was shot last week.
I found the girls cuddling on the kitchen floor as the morning sun was just coming up. It was pouring rain out, which made for an even lower low light. Thankfully, my camera was near by!
