I was always the one at family gatherings and holidays wielding the camera so when I stumbled upon a “photo of the day” challenge back in 2014 it seemed a natural fit little did I know how transformative and addicting it would be; the fact that everyday held photo possibilities was eye opening! I live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, married and have a daughter in college.
I have always enjoyed taking photos. I received my first DSLR in 2014 and was determined to shoot in manual mode. I started taking a photo a day in January 2015. Not only did I learn to shoot in manual, but now I have a photo business for charity that keeps me busy and fulfilled in my retirement. I live in Southeast Virginia with my hubby and we have 3 grown children and 9 grandchildren.
I first realized that I had an interest in taking pictures in sixth grade when I worked on a Photography badge in Girl Scouts. I took lots of pictures during the next 40+ years of my life, but knew little about what I was doing. That all changed on January 1, 2013 when I started learning about and practicing photography by taking a photo a day. I live in Dallas, TX with my husband, 3 dogs, and a cat. I have 2 grown daughters and 1 grandson.
I have always been interested in photography but didn’t practice enough, so I decided to start taking a photo a day back in January 2014, which improved my photos within six months, practice makes perfect apparently, but the more I know I realise that I have still a lot to learn. I have lived in Belgium for the last 24 years, with my husband, I have four grown up children and a dog!
I have loved photography since I was around 9 years old when I was gifted my very own Kodak Instamatic. I took many photos throughout the years mostly to fill the needs of my other hobby of scrapbooking. In 2009, I got my first DSLR and was content just shooting in auto mode. As I slowly upgraded my DSLRs throughout the years, I decided that I wasn't doing those cameras justice by not learning what the equipment could really do. So, in 2014 I signed up with a group that took one photo every day and on day one I switched my camera to manual mode and never looked back! The camera isn't what makes us a photographer ~ it's the passion behind the camera that does and you'll never regret the memories you capture ~ only the ones you don't. I live in central MN happily married to my best friend and we have twin boys, a little girl, one happy pup, and one crabby cat (who is loved just the same).
I’ve enjoyed taking photos most of my life and always seemed to be the family photographer. When I retired I decided to take up photography more seriously. I upgraded my gear and took some online courses to try and hone my skills. But I found I could never think of what to photograph. I just wasn’t creative enough to come up with ideas. I joined a 365 project and haven’t looked backed. I’ve learned so much and have been challenged more than I ever thought possible. I live in Ottawa, Canada with my partner Brian. I have no children of my own but I do have the cutest grandson ever!
As an artist I had aways taken pictures to paint. I could see and frame paintings in my head. I eventually discovered that I began to enjoy my photographs more than my paintings. I put down my brushes and purchased my first good camera in 2014. In the beginning I had no ideas what I was doing; F-stops, ISO, shutter speed? It was all crazy talk to me. But experimentation, a few classes and some good friends to guide me along the way has lead to an obsession! Now I frame everything I see as a photograph. My camera is my appendage; it goes everywhere with me. I continue to grow as a photographer through 365 Picture Today because the challenge of taking a photograph every day also challenges me to be more creative every day.
