I've taken a photo every day for the past 51 days. It turns out that is harder than it sounds, especially when you have an assignment/theme given to you and you're trying to a) take a good photo, and b) produce something different to what everyone else is posting on the Mission:Pic app.
I started doing it as a way to justify the new camera i bought, which was my way to start taking photos again. I've really enjoyed it, and i think my technique has improved a lot (but there are two i really don't like). The first month of photos are here, and February's are here.
One of the difficulties of starting this challenge in January, in northern England, and having a full time job is most of the light is gone by the time i have chance to take a photo. It does mean, however, i've got better at night photography.
I've also improved my understanding of lighting, and it turns out you can get some nice effects using angle pose lamps and torches.
When i'm short on time or ideas i default to my macro lens and take a close-up of something as it is relatively straightforward to get a good shot this way. It is easy to fill the frame, provides an interesting and different perspective, and i've always enjoyed macro shots.
It has also forced me to explore more of my surroundings, and i now take my camera with me everywhere i go. Some of the photos below were taken while i was searching for my assignment subject and i couldn't resist.
Right, i better get on and take today's photo: edible.
