Photo challenge

When it comes to photography I have no special qualifications at all. The one basic photography class I took in college was all about working in the darkroom which I thoroughly enjoyed. Still, if you ask me about f-stops and light meters and how to do tricky things with your camera I will stare at you blankly. I am clueless.

Even so, I appreciate good photography when I see it. I really enjoy the process of taking pictures and the way it makes me look at things differently.

I had lots of fun with our last color week and really enjoyed seeing the pictures of so many who joined in. Here are my ideas for next week:

Monday: Corners of my home
Tuesday: Self portrait
Wednesday: Black and white
Thursday: Inside looking out
Friday: Portrait of a stranger

I am going to attempt to post one photograph daily which reflects that particular day's theme. If anyone wants to join in with one day or the whole week I would love it! I may even get around to listing links in my sidebar of all those participating. We could even do a flickr group if people are interested.

There are really no hard and fast rules to any of this. I just know it helps me refine my focus if I limit myself to posting one picture daily but anyone can post more if they want.

Woohoo!! I love photography! I don't know if I'll be able to participate or not, although I'd like to, but I'll definitely enjoy seeing yours (and others')!

looking forward to the Black and White one. Color is nice, but for some reason I like b&w more...

Look forward to seeing them. And I think you're right, a challenge focuses the mind.

Hope your poster gets to you fast!
