The Purpose, the Journey, and the Fun along the way

Here we are, two moms who love our cameras and miss our college art classes and colleagues. With a family it can be difficult to find time for the creative process. Emily and I are using this blog as a way to have fun, work on our photography, keep each other accountable, and be creative!

Each Monday one of us will post a challenge for us both to complete and post a response to by Friday that week. Over the weekend, if time permits each of us will also critique the other's work.

We hope to use this blog as a way to grow together as photographers as we continue to grow as mothers.

If you happen to stumble upon our blog, and want to join in, feel free! Just post your response, with a link to your photos in the MckLinky link for that week. Challenges stay open for three weeks after they are posted.

Challenge #45

I was thinking last night about when to start our Christmas challenge and with today being our family's Christmas cookie baking day, I figured most other people have already started some of their Holiday traditions. So for the next two weeks the challenge will be very very simple.

The Challenge:
The Christmas Journal

The Rules:
1.) Keep a photographic "Journal" of your Christmas activities.
2.) Post as many or few journal entries as you'd like in the MckLinky provided below, but if you do more than one make sure you put that after your name (Diana #1, Diana #2 and so on).
3.) Challenge yourself to describe your traditions and memories in new and creative ways. Tell us a story!
4.) Have fun and create many beautiful memories!

See you all in two weeks!

Challenge #44

Hey all,
Time for a more technical challenge this week.

The challenge:

The goal of this challenge is to take something ordinary and make it look extraordinary.

If you're a little stumped head on over to challenge #41 where we did a study on "the rule of thirds". Go ahead, click on the link there and read the article, or look that the offerings for that week.

Have fun seeing shoes through new eyes!
