Photo 365 – January

OK, these might be a little cliche by now, but I’ve never done a 365 photo challenge, and I thought it would be fun this year. I’m not a good photographer now, but I’m hoping this challenge will help me practice and give me some experience. I’m following a few blogs who have done this before for inspiration, so hopefully it will be somewhat interesting.

I’ll try to use the DSLR, but those pictures will take longer for me to post. The ones I take from my phone may not be as good, but at least I can post them right away.

I guess I need some rules. Since this is intended to stretch and grow me as a photographer, I will set these two rules:
1) at least 2 pictures a week must be taken by DSLR
2) no repeat subjects in one week (food, portrait, etc…) – unless I chose to do a study on variation, such as pick one subject, and shoot different aspects/filters/parameters every day for a week.

Some pictures may be more artsy, some may be memories, for this project, variation is good!

So, without further ado, here is January’s.

About casadezhang

J and I got married in August 2010, and purchased our first house in May 2012. I decided to start a blog so I can ramble on about all the thing I find interesting. How is this different than any other home/life blog? It's probably not - but I just like to talk :). I'm not the best at updating my blogs, but I'll try to update at least once a week, or whenever anything interesting happens :).
