a photo a day :: day 72

I'm still taking at least one picture every day.  Well, I guess I forgot a couple times last week, but I'm trying to take at least one picture every day.  Have I learned anything yet?  That's hard to say.  I think I'm becoming more familiar with all the numbers (aperture, f/stop,etc) and how they relate to each other, and ultimately how that affects the picture.  Although, I still very much operate in the trial and error mode most of the time.

I am also having to think of creative ways to shoot regular day things.  I don't often go out for an exciting picture taking journey every day.  Most days I find myself just about to cook dinner and discovering I haven't taken a picture yet, so I wander around the house, first upstairs, then downstairs, then out on the front porch, looking for something news worthy.  Something that's just screaming to have it's picture taken.  Then after coming up with nothing, I realize that I have to just find something, anything, and try get the best shot possible.  Hopefully, after a year of this, I will have some better techniques for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.


  1. I agree... the straws! Before I read what you wrote Emily, I thought to myself... "Wow, she takes ordinary things and makes the beauty come out!"

  2. Great shots! I'm hoping to get a DSLR sometime soon and I think the photo a day idea is great to get practice behind the lens.

  3. thanks! how funny that you guys like the straws, that was definitly one where i was totally at a loss for what to shoot.

    jess- i've been told over and over again, the only way to get better is to take a gazillion pictures. hope you get your camera soon! you can join in with us!
