Photo a Day Challenge!

For Christmas last year, my hubby bought me an awesomely fancy camera.  At one public outing shortly after Christmas, where I was trying to get used to all the camera's buttons and settings, someone suggested I try a photo-a-day challenge, just to encourage me to keep practicing using the camera.  With a little extra time on my hands this summer, I thought it would be a perfect chance to do just that. 

I found this challenge on  Doesn't it look fun?  A lot of people will be using Instagram for the challenge, but I need to get comfortable with the fancy-shmancy camera, so no Instagram for me.  If you want to keep up with my progress each day, I will be posting on Twitter (@drmomsie).  And, I'm sure I'll try to showcase a few of my masterpieces on here too.

First photo, a self portrait.  Yuck, not the best way to start.  I really cringe at all the self-portraits I take.  Here's the best I could do.

    1. Hope to see yours on Twitter as well!

  2. Awesome! I'll follow along on Twitter. :) By the way, not sure where you are with learning your camera, but you might like the Move to Manual series at I'm only a few posts into the series (hard to find the time I need to work through it) but I'm finding it really fun and helpful!

    1. Thanks for the idea, Ellie! I just checked out the Move to Manual series and definitely think this will have to become part of my summer reading!
