Starting tomorrow, I will begin a new tradition of sorts. Because I use my camera so little I want to challenge myself to take a photo a day for a whole year: the 9/4/2016 to the 9/4/2017. I will upload the photo in a blog post under the title “Photo a Day Challenge: #xxx” and write a small paragraph about how I took it and any filters I have applied to it.

Here are the rules:

  1. The picture must be taken by me, using my DSLR camera (no phone images!).
  2. The challenge is void if an image is uploaded after 11:59:59, meaning a day has been missed. The challenge is void if I fail to take an image on a day or fail to meet one of the requirements of rules 6 and 7. The challenge is void if an image from before the 9th of April 2016 is used as part of the challenge.
  3. The subsequent blog post must include a small piece about the image.
  4. The image can be of anything and any filter can be applied to it in any way. As long as the image belongs to me it is ok.
  5. As long as there are 365 posts featuring 365 images between tomorrow and the 9th of April next year, the challenge is completed. But the rules must be adhered to.
  6. At least one picture a week must be taken at night otherwise the challenge is void.
  7. At least one picture a month must be taken from somewhere outside of my town otherwise the challenge is void.

Life is beautiful, why shouldn’t I be challenging myself to capture it!
