I have several friends who are interested and inspired by photography. Creative friends. Friends who want something, NEED SOMETHING, more! Some who want to get outside of their own heads. Some who want to connect with something very real and very personal.
This is where this photo challenge comes in. There are so many great photo challenges out there…because I love my friends so much and because I love photography so much I’ve come up with my own ideas for a photo challenge that I think will make people think outside the box. Some items on the list might scare you a little…push you out of your comfort zone. And that’s okay. That’s good!
The purpose of my challenge is not to intimidate anyone. Its intension is to take your fears, your insecurities, your inhibitions and hurl them out the window of a speeding locomotive. Who cares if you know about exposure, aperture, white balance, shutter speed? Not this girl. Right now it doesn’t matter. I just want you to start. There are no grades. There are no critiques. There is only you and your ideas and your camera. But this challenge is not just for aspiring photographers. Photographers of all levels who want or need to shake things up a little can benefit as well.
What if you don’t have a digital camera? Well then please use whatever is at your disposal. A cell phone camera. A film camera. A Polaroid instant camera. Those are all GREAT ways to take images! Just grab it and go have some “me” time! You’ll be so happy you did.
I’m super excited because I am going to do this challenge with you. So, starting tomorrow, I am going to post my images on facebook and Instagram each day for 15 days. Please join me and tag me…I want to see your images! For facebook please tag mikelllouise photography and for Instagram please use @mikelllouisephoto.
