Day 1

Okay, I'm finally going to do it. I will take a photo every day for 365 days. Why? This has become a popular challenge across the blog world, and I've seen people grow so much in that year. What to do? 

  • Read in my manual every day, and use that knowledge to photograph something for that particular subject. 
  • Post 1 photo each day for 365 days. 
  • Look at professional images each day whether it be books or online. 
  • Be more creative! 
I must admit, I'm a little nervous. Not sure I can complete this challenge, but have every intention of doing so! 
If anyone else is on this journey, feel free to join in and give constructive criticism. I am a bit shy to throw the first photo up. I don't know if I should photoshop or throw the images up there untouched..what to do what to do...
I guess I will figure it out as I go.

I will be posting each image here to organize it for my own sake, I will urge you to also start your own 365 blog to archive your photos. I've also started a Flickr group called kara's 365! That way you can add your own photos and join us all on the challenge! Invite your friends, it will be a great journey!

Happy 2011! It's been an up and down year for us, I pray that it is a wonderful year this year for all my friends and family! 

365 Day 1 
Lighting. This is the hardest for me to get right when the sun isn't shining through. 
My settings were:
ISO - 800, f/5, Shutter speed 1/60, 90 mm, No flash, tungsten light setting

My thoughts: It's still a little grainy, but that's understandable with an ISO of 800. I was more worried about the lighting, and it not being too orange having the blond haired girl with such light skin and an orange flower. So, that in itself is usually a challenge for me.
