  • Photo A Day Challenge Improves Your Photography

    With the new year about to begin, make a New Year’s Resolution to kickstart your photography skills.   Set a goal of taking at least one photo every single day of the year – beginning with a Photo A Day January project – starting on January 1. Taking a daily photo will help improve your photography skills and capture beautiful memories of your family and your world.

    Why Participate in a Photo A Day Challenge?

    A photo helps you remember. The emotions that a photograph reminds you of can be amazing. Photography connects us to our past and helps preserve memories without words. Photography can help you see the world differently. It is a hobby you can start learning at any stage of life and the value of a photograph always increases with time.

    Photography is a popular hobby, but there are times when your creativity may dim and the inspiration dries up. A photo a day keeps the staleness away. Stagnation and boredom with a hobby like photography is a killer.

    Not only will this make you more enthusiastic, but will increase your photography skills. Practice makes progress! Shooting a daily image could, in fact, turn into a form of photo journal in which you document your life over the year.

    Check back here each month for a new Photo A Day inspiration sheet.
