In a recent post I wrote about my failure with picture taking. Vowing not to do this again I challenged myself to snap photos every day.
I didn’t put a number on the photos I would take. I just must do it. It takes twenty-one days to create a new habit. At the time of this writing I have eighteen more days to go!
I actually love using my camera and I do take pictures of quite a lot. But establishing a daily photo of life around me is the challenge. On a daily basis that is, as in every single day. I’ll admit that some days have passed without picture taking. But I forgive myself and move on in pursuit of my new thing and working to make it second nature.
Another upside to taking photos every day is that I’m learning to use my iPhone camera. I’ve been resistant to using it, telling myself that the quality of the photos was not so good. And I kept putting it off. But I knew that some of you were taking excellent shots with your phones and I marveled over them. I also marveled about how you were getting serendipitous shots of life around you.
That’s the habit I want. And besides all this, my phone is usually always with me or within arms reach.
I’m making myself envious now and just want to walk away from the computer, grab the camera and go outside. But then again, writing for Gaelic Forge is another challenge. Moving on.
I’ve started gathering collections of my own with my Canon and phone camera. All these pictures I’m sharing today are exclusively from my iPhone.
How about you? Do you have a solid gold habit of taking ridiculous amounts of photos? Do you know how to focus your phone camera, iPhone camera where you want? Please share your tips and advice, I would love to read them!
