30 Day Photography Challenge

My lastest internet crush has been Pinterest. If you haven’t heard of it, click over there and have a look at all that eye-candy. A cautionary note however – you may end up spending hours and hours of your life there, so be warned! While potting around the site a few nights ago I found a pin about a 30 Day Photography Challenge. While I’m not absolutely sure where the original post came from, I think it was from this site. Anyway, the premise of the challenge is to take a photo of a predetermined item every day for 30 days. Below is a list of the topics for each day. While I love photography, I’m not much of a photographer. After two courses I still end up using the Auto setting for best results – what can I say, Lumix makes great cameras. But this time I endeavor to make an effort to use my camera properly. And that means setting the aperture, shutter speed and all those other things that I’m going to have to google to figure out. I’ll start this December. Depending on how they turn out, I may or may not post them somewhere… ;)

Update: On morgueFile, Freelance photographer Jodie Coston offers a free online course in photography. The course is sectioned into 10 lessons and covers most of the basic elements of photography. Each lesson has a separate discussion board and assignments to help you put what you learned into practice. Check out the lessons here.
