30 day photography challenge
You can probably guess I was thinking about this post all summer long. It’s funny, because I’ve had this idea for quite a while. I’ve wanted to create a 30 day photography challenge for a while, but I’ve never had the guts to actually put it into action.
While I would love to say that this was the last challenge I would ever take, its possible that the challenge I set last year is actually the first one I would ever take, and that others will follow. So let’s just say that there will be a whole new challenge next year.
I started this blog as just a hobby, and the challenge idea just sort of fell right out of the blue. The entire challenge is to photograph something for at least 30 days, and then share your work. The first challenge has already been taken, and we all can now look forward to the entire challenge.
The challenge was originally designed as a 30 days of shooting challenge but I found myself going longer than I ever thought possible, mostly because I was so busy working on some other project. So I decided to make the challenge a 30 day challenge. In theory, there’s no limit. If I take more then 30 days to shoot, I’ll have to share all the photos with everyone who joined. And of course, I have a new challenge for next year.
It has been a long time since I shot any 30 day challenge. I’m a little bit disappointed, but I’m also a bit bummed. I don’t want to make the challenge a thing of the past because I think it’s just fun and I hope this challenge will be a great success.
A 30 day challenge is only as good as the people who join. This is a great way to meet new people and discover new interests. Plus, if you stick with it, the results will definitely be good.
The challenge was well-established a few years ago, but it was mostly a big joke. It started off by asking you to take a picture of yourself every day for 30 days. For the thirty days, a picture of you and your best friend, on your wedding day, or after you have a baby, or at a wedding, or when you are in bed with a man… basically you had to photograph some people every day. This is what some people thought was so great about it.
It’s a thing. Even if you do want to take photos of your every day, it’s going to be hard. Every day you will probably spend in bed with someone, your best friend, or with a man. That’s a lot of photos to take. Also, the idea of a thirty day challenge makes you wonder why it’s even still a thing.
It’s because the people that were able to take these photos were all in their late thirties or forties. They were all single, or single for a long time, or married, or single for a long time. Of course this is why it didn’t feel like a challenge. You have to have some good reason to take these photos, otherwise you might as well be asking people to participate in a game of Monopoly.
But like all things social, the challenge is often met with the most hilarious results. I love how the photographers all keep laughing at what they see. A lot of the photos I took were really awful, so really I was just giving it my best shot.
