  • September Photo A Day: Free Printable + Tips for Photographing Autumn Leaves

    September Photo A Day and tips for photographing autumn leaves

    Why do you take pictures?  Taking photos provides you with a daily diary of sorts.  You can catalog your personal history through images.  Time goes by so quickly.  Capturing memories with your photos is an opportunity to hang on to those moments and relive them again.  Taking a photo a day helps to teach you to really "see" things around you. Photographs can transport you to another time and place.  While we generally take pictures of things that are important to us, trying a Photo A Day challenge can give you the opportunity to see beauty and creativity in everyday things around you.  Give it a try!
