Introducing the 2017 photography project


Happy New Year! Today, I am starting on a new blogging challenge via the Ultimate Blogging Challenge. I will participate in the challenge for the entire month of January. Blogging challenges are good because participants get guidance from experienced bloggers. They get guidance on finding topics for writing blog posts, as well as guidance on how to advertise the blog to get more readers. The Ultimate Blogging Challenge has a Facebook page. This is a community of bloggers. We read and comment on one another's blogs. This sort of feedback is very helpful for bloggers.


Today, I am also starting a new photography project. I will take at least one photograph a day for the entire year, following a program called the 52-week photography challenge for 2017. It is being organized by Dogwood Photography, located in Wilmington, North Carolina. Dogwood Photography operates a photography school in Wilmington and it runs online photography challenges. There are weekly assignments in three categories: story telling, technical, and artistic impression.

You are certainly welcome to join me in this photography challenge. It should be a lot of fun. Here is a link to the 2017 challenge:

I will share photographs weekly!

Are you planning a creative project for 2017? Tell me about it in the comment section.

I love the idea of a photo each day for a challenge! I like to do those on Instagram. Photography is a skill that I definitely need to work on. Good luck with your challenge!!

No photography challenges planned. Eventually, I will need to do something like that, in order to develop my photography skills. Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

I am attempting to do a photo a day for January on my Instagram page. I need to link my instagram account to my blog. Guess that's my challenge for tonight.

Happy New Year! While my husband and I are not doing a challenge of taking a photograph every day, we are doing a huge project centered around our photos (and those of our parents). He has a scanner and we are working to digitize all of our negatives, and clean up the images to preserve them. It is a much larger undertaking than we had initially imagined!! But, baby steps, right?

I look forward to your photos!! Good luck with the Ultimate Blog Challenge!! :-)
