Let’s face it, taking photos of your kids isn’t easy. I recently completed my first Project 365 in which I took photographs of my kids almost every day for an entire year. Through this project and years of photographing my kids prior, I have learned so much about taking photos of children.
When it comes to our kids, the phrase “They grow up fast” is an understatement. One of the main reasons I bought a DSLR was to capture the fleeting years I have with my children. I want to remember both the big and small things that happen in their lives.
There are so many variables involved when trying to get a good shot of your kids, but there are definitely some things you can do to make the process easier! Wherever you are in your photography journey, I hope these tips will help you take photos of your kids that will provide lasting memories. (more…)
I received my very first DSLR camera a little over a year ago. Within a few weeks, and after a lot of researching online, I started shooting in manual mode. Through my research, I learned that a great way to grow as a photographer is to complete a 365 Photography Project. So what is a 365 Photography Project, or what I like to call a Project 365? It is a challenge to take a photo every day for 365 days. Starting a Project 365 is a huge commitment, but definitely worth it if you desire to grow as a photographer.
Doing a Project 365 was one of the best decisions I could have made as a “newbie” photographer. Not only did I learn so much about shooting in manual mode, but I was able to capture and document my life with my family over the course of a year. I have so many photos of my kids and my family that I will forever treasure because I was intentional about taking a photo every day.
Now that I have completed the project I thought I would share some tips that I hope will help you complete your own Project 365.
Well folks, we are finally at week 52 in my Project 365 challenge. Can you believe it? I can’t! I have learned so much over this past year by taking photos every day. Stayed tuned for an upcoming post on the lessons I have learned throughout this entire process.
Thank you all for the encouragement you have given me through this year-long journey. Your support helped me immensely, and gave me the extra push I needed to complete this difficult, yet very rewarding challenge.
