52 Week Photo Challenge

So as the title says, I'm starting a 52 week photo challenge starting the first Monday in January. In 4 days that is.

The point is to challenge myself in my photography and to help my creative thinking process. Hopefully I'll be able to complete all 52 weeks, but I'm forgetful and a procrastinator. So we'll see how it goes.

I created a Facebook group for it, but so far only my mother and I are the only ones in it. I have some "friends" on FB that are into photography so either they didn't see my post or they are too cool for my challenge.  Even if it's just me and mom I'm still doing it.

My mom got a camera just like mine for Christmas, but my dad had to make sure she had one up on me and bought 1 of the only 6 red ones in the state of Texas. My parents are all about being better than others for some reason so it was no surprise to me.

Anyway, my mom now needs to learn to use her new fancy red camera. That's part of the reason she bought the same camera I have. So I can teach her how to use it.  And with the photo challenge she and I will have to get our cameras out at least once a week and work on the themes. This will also give me a good chance to work on creative editing.

I'll be sharing my creations with you every week. I'll welcome any feedback.

If your interested in joining the challenge yourself let me know and I'll send you the link for the FB group. You don't have to have a fancy camera or anything. You could use your cell phone camera or any one you have handy.

You should come join the fun.  See you next week!

Hi Jancet! We started this 2 years ago, but didn't make it very far, lol. If you want to do it I'd be more than willing to try again. You can join this facebook group and we;ll get started the first week of January.
