So last year one of my photography friends said she was going to begin a 365 day photo challenge and I decided to take the plunge and try it too. I’d never done a photo challenge like this before. There are monthly ones, and even 52 week ones. Those would have been much easier, but I decided to be brave and take on The Bethadilly Challenge, 365 days of photos. And here I am at day 365! I did it.
I really wasn’t sure about taking on this challenge. Taking a photo every day, editing it and posting. It all seemed daunting! Now I’ll admit there were days I didn’t post and I doubled up on other days. There were some days when I posted that the photo wasn’t taken on that exact day. Some days were photos of the gorgeous families and people I get to work with. But I think it’s all about what works for you and it’s all art right?!
I’m pretty proud of the fact that I made it to day 365! I mean that’s a big deal. And I feel like I’ve learned a lot along the way. I picked up my camera way more than I ever have. The prompts encouraged me to shoot lots of different things. I shot in different types of light and settings. It really was a great challenge.
So if you’ve been too scared or hesitant to try a 365 challenge I say just do it. You won’t regret it. I will say a part of me is glad it’s done. I’m ready to slow down and take a bit of a break. But overall I loved it. I’m now taking on The Bethadilly 52 week challenge. Much slower but still fun. Be sure to check out my Instagram and Facebook pages to follow along. Here are a just a few of my favorite photos from the 365 day photo challenge! Enjoy!
