Check 23

Day 31
Remember when I issued myself a little challenge here?

Well, it has been 31 days and it's time for a little evaluation.

Has my photography gotten any better? Well, I don't really know. I've tried a couple new things, like self portraiture and night photography, however I don't think I've done enough of either of these things to really say that I've gotten skilled at them.

It has been 31 days, but I would still like to continue to learn and practice. Unfortunately, with a relatively long work day, I don't have hours to devote to taking photos and editing them. So, I would like more time to learn and practice. That said, let's extend this another month for now. We'll take it one month at a time and go from there. :)

What do you think? Have you seen any improvement? Backsliding? Suggestions for subject matter or just in general? I love a good constructive critique.

Hello Sweden

Just a quick update on my Etsy shop-- I sold a bowtie to a customer in SWEDEN! Super exciting. It's been sparse lately, but I am working on some additions to the shop, so stay tuned!

P.S. My Etsy shop can be found here.

On my list of 25 Before 25, number 23 is "Participate in a photo challenge."

There are many out there, some topical (ie, landscapes, macros, etc), some time constrained (31 days), and some free form.

It's already past the first of the year, so it seems a little belated to do a 365 day challenge (though technically, the 365 days can start at any time). A month long challenge seems more manageable. I'd really like to push myself and do the 365 day challenge, though I don't want to set myself up for failure. Maybe I'll start with 30 days and then if that seems to be clipping along, I'll extend it.

I'll be uploading my photos to Flikr as well as to a separate tab at the top menu bar. Make sure to check back often!
