Today I want to introduce the 52 week photo challenge.
So what is that? The photo challenge is to take pictures every week on a given subject. This helps practice photography, keep engaged and last but not least to have fun! I don’t know about you, but I need the practice. This way you don’t even have to come up with a subject for an entire year.
I will be participating here every week as well and post my pictures, tips and tricks on how to get the most out of this challenge. I also set up a Facebook group to help you along and give you feedback. Click here to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1701572876529588/
