Have you been taking a photo every day?
On February 1, in celebration of our 100th Snap & Sell Photo Club Challenge, I issued you a little challenge to take one photo a day for 100 days.
Today is Day 36, and I must say, it’s been harder than I thought to take one photo a day with my camera. I’ve “cheated” by using my phone here and there, but overall, I’m happy with how much more I’m shooting and getting my skills back up-to-speed.
Here are a few of the shots I’ve taken over the last 30+ days:
They’re not all stock shots — but some of them will be!
What’s cool about this is that, not only does it keep your skills sharp and give you a fresh stream of photos to submit to your stock agencies, but it’s a fun little snapshot of your life over the last few weeks, too. Sort of like a daily journal.
Share some of your shots from February and March on the Snap & Sell Photo Club Facebook page, here!
And if you haven’t started, yet, you can still join in! Either take one photo a day for the next 64 days, until the end of the challenge… or start now and go for 100 days.
Something to keep in mind when you do: This isn’t about having perfect photos. It’s just about getting your camera out and shooting more. Nothing helps you learn and grow like doing. Even if you snap a quick photo of your tea or your glass of wine at the end of the day… your brain is still engaged with photography on a regular basis. And that’s the best way to improve.
Next week, I’ll share some great tips from a stock photo inspector that will help as you decide which of your shots to submit to agencies.
In the meantime, get shooting!
