September 365 Photo Challenge ListPosted by Katrina Kennedy on Aug 29, 2013 in 365, Blog, Idea List | 4 comments
This Really Matters
Somedays I find myself tired of taking a photo every day. Somedays I feel like I’ve taken this photo before. Why am I taking it again?
And then I step back and look at my collection of photos.
I step back and can look at my life and see a glimpse of EVERY SINGLE DAY since February 20th, 2008. Every day minus the three that somehow got away.
It’s not about the number of photos. It’s about the picture they create together.
I can see the small details of the life I share with my family and friends. I can see the big moments and the mundane. When everything around me seems to be racing so very fast, it’s my small way of slowing things down. It’s my small way of remembering what matters most.
365 doesn’t need to mean every day.
It can fit whatever works for you.
It does mean that you have made the decision that your life matters enough to be photographed. To be remembered.
It means that you are doing your part to slow this crazy world. And together, we can catch our collective breath.
And that is not a bad thing at all.
How can you use the list? Follow three quick steps!
Download the September Challenge List to your favorite device or print it for quick reference. I post mine right next to my desk.
Subscribe to the free daily emails for a prompt reminder and tips for each day’s prompts.
Go sequential if that’s your thing or pick one that inspires you. Go out on your own if you need to. There is no wrong way to use the prompts!
And really…if you need to skip a prompt…then skip it! It’s your project. Make it your own!
This month’s repeating prompts are:
September 14 – Self Portrait
September 21 – Color, this month’s color is brown.
September 28 – A Portrait of a person
Create your image with whatever camera you have! Phone, dSLR, point and shoot.
This month we are also joining Ali Edwards’ Week In The Life from September 9th to 15th. You can read more about her project here. It’s a project I love and have completed several times. They are my family’s favorite books to look through.
Shoot what you can. Share what you can. No pressure. Sharing helps keep you motivated all year long.
