Last year I started a monthly photo challenge that takes place (now) on the first Saturday of each month. The challenge is called #1Day12Pics with a simple idea of taking one picture roughly every hour for 12 hours to tell the story of the day. I really love this challenge as it is not as long as a 30 day or 365 challenges, yet it still has the difficulty of needing to take 12 pictures in a day. On two months I did fail the challenge at around hour ten, but did try.
What was really interesting yesterday was how different my phoneography is, compared to a year ago. I understand that we all grow over a year and as we learn we change how we take pictures, but I didn’t think the difference would be so big.
The main thing I have changed is how I process my images. I have always used apps to edit my mobile pictures but I feel that my editing has gotten better and more refined. At present most pictures are edited either in Snapseed, Pixlr or Vsco Cam. I also use Google cam taking advantage of some of their features instead of the standard phone’s camera app. I am also use tap to focus and take burst shots, then I go back and choose the sharpest image.
If you want to join in the next Challenge it is on the 4th of April (the Saturday before Easter). You can join in on both twitter and Instagram using the tag #1day12pics.
Let me know what you think of the pictures, as well as any favourites you have.
