PAD Photography

Practice makes… well… better, I hope.

I’ve enjoyed taking pictures for as long as I can remember.  After getting annoyed by me stealing his camera all the time my Dad gave me my first camera when I was 6.  I took pictures of everything, but mainly my GI Joe.

So, now I’m older and wiser, I don’t take quite as many pictures of dolls and I’m not always happy with the pictures I take.  I was inspired by Rob’s description of the picture a day challenge (PAD).  The idea is you need to take and post at least one picture every day for a year.  As you take pictures and are forced to choose your favorite each day (provided you take more than one) you will also be forced to improve (also, now that I’ve gone public with this I’ll be embarassed to quit :))

To that ends I’ve started my Picture a Day gallery.  You’ll find that it’s a little bare as I’ve done a poor job taking one picture every day so far this year.  I will, however, keep it up now that I will suffer public humiliation if I don’t follow through.

You go Reeves!! It’s a great project and is sure to improve your photography skills. Just using your camera everyday will make you know it like the back of your hand. If your picture doesn’t come out one day, you can always take it again another day while trying a different setting or technique. It also makes you learn Photoshop.
