A few days ago, I started to think about how I could challenge myself to become a better photographer. I’ve been starting to use my tripod more often – especially practicing late afternoon and evening shots. I also want to become better skilled with the Lightroom photo-editing software I have purchased. I’ve heard all the advice about getting out and shooting photographs every day – practice and experimentation being the key to improvement. I have certainly taken many, many pictures this summer so far. But, I have not made the commitment as yet to get out every day. They say if you do something every day for 1 to 2 months that it becomes habit. Okay – let’s put that theory to the test!
My goal for the next month is to get out with my camera every day – either early morning before work, or later at night after work – and capture some of the scenic spots in Acadia. I will post a picture a day. The criteria I’ve set for myself is simple:
I climbed on top of some cliffs overlooking Little Hunter’s Beach snapping pictures as the sun was setting. This was one of the last pictures I took this evening. I wanted to make sure I could get back to the road before it got too dark, and the mosquitoes were starting to come out in full force! Admittedly, had I stayed a little longer, the colors would have intensified even more.
29 days to go!
A great beginning to a great resolution.
Thanks! It’s going to be a fun challenge!
