This year I’ve decided to challenge myself a bit. One of my biggest regrets last year was not photographing my dolls enough. I could see quite a bit improvement from 2012, but I’m certain that spending even more time with my camera would be a big help. I like the overall quality of my pictures a lot more this year, too – not just in quality (better camera), but in creativity as well. It’s easier to get creative when you really like the outcome.
I’ve seen the A Doll A Week challenge done quite a bit, and people often mention that forcing themselves to take more pictures helps them improve. So I’ve decided to try it out myself. I tried finding a challenge list, but failed. This led me to conclude that just taking random pictures would probably be an easier start anyway. Maybe I can try a challenge next year!
I won’t name my pictures ADAW as I tried one year, because I hate that title plus I’m doing this for myself. I might make a set for it on Flickr and pick one picture each week though.
So you might have noticed that we’re currently already in the second week of 2014. Ironically I was able to pull my act together and take the pictures last week, but I couldn’t find the energy to actually post them! Oh well, let’s pretend anyway.
Have you ever done any of these challenges, whether A Doll A Day, A Doll A Week, A Doll A Month or something else? Were you successful?
