Goal #2 – Keep Snapping

My second goal as a photographer is to keep snapping.  I love taking photos and getting out and about with my camera.  There’s always something interesting to see and photograph.  But sometimes you need a focus on subjects or themes for inspiration.  Here are some specific ways I want to keep snapping …

  • Classic Cars.  I love shooting photos of classic cars.  They are filled with detail and history that can’t be captured anywhere else.  I want to expand my collection of classic car photos by attending at least 5 classic car shows between now and the end of the year.
  • Photo Challenge. I’m intrigued by those challenges where you are to take a photo (and post it!) every day for a year.  I’m not sure that’s the challenge I’m looking for, but have been considering a 12-week challenge where I concentrate my photography around different themes.  Here is a list I developed and would like to start this challenge in September.
    • week 1 – self portrait
    • week 2 – the color blue
    • week 3 – nature
    • week 4 – bokehlicious
    • week 5 – black & white
    • week 6 – around the house
    • week 7 – motion/movement
    • week 8 – views/vistas
    • week 9 – architecture
    • week 10 – portrait/street
    • week 11 – lines
    • week 12 – the color green
  • Events & Americana.   Fall is a great time to attend festivals.  I would like to expand my collection of Events and Americana by attending the annual Civil War Battle of Tunnel Hill (GA) and the Ketner’s Mill Festival.  Both are great places for photography.

In summary, my second goal is to keep shooting more photos with a focus on classic cars, a 12-week personal challenge, and events/Americana.  Next up is Goal #3 – Keep Exploring (more on that in the next post).
