Morning guys! How are you doing?
This year has been crazy and I barely got time to take the camera out to shoot and learn new things. That’s why I am bringing this new and awesome plan to practice together our photography skills and improve them this new year! Because, at the end of the day, we get immersed in our routine and our day a day, between work, responsabilities, going to the gym, grabbing beers… so it is easy to put excuses not to shoot and just let it go.
As photography is an art harder tan it looks, everyday practice and persistance, reading, educating, learning and working on our skills with the camera and the light is basic. That’s why I’ve come up with a photochallenge!
It’ll be 52 photochallenge weeks carefully curated by me, in collaboration with Drisual. Each week will have a different challenge that will go around different sets of skills and topics through the year: landscapes, portraits, creativity, perspectives, techniques… The good thing is to work through them, all of them, as we get out of our confort zone and we work on different skills to get better as photographers.
How should we do this, then? We’re going to play in Instagram with the hashtag #Drucky52, it is going to be awesome to see the different ways to shoot you all have and how each one of us is able to create striking pictures different to the rest of us! Each week, Drisual and I will chose one winning picture and we’ll share it in both our InstaStories.
But that’s not it! To give you a lil more motivational push, we’ll be publishing in Amazon an ebook with the best 52 pictures taken all year around. This way you could see your picture published, and who doesn’t like that!?
52 weeks photochallenge: All year
And our last price, the superprize!
There are two prints waiting for the one who wins more challenges through the year. The first print will be from my Instagram feed (@nucky_dana) and you can choose ANY PICTURE you want from it (only restricted by the necessary model releases). The second print will be from Drisual’s Instagram feed (@drisual) and again, you’ll be the one chosing the picture you’d like to hang on your walls!
In plus! So you are not all alone in this (and as we’ll also be participating because … I really need to motivate myself to shoot some outside my confort zone and some personal projects), because we’ll be writing post to help you with the challenge. We’ll write tips, information, mood boards… that will inspire you and help you participate on this challenge with an extra of excitement.
Also, you can suscribe right here so you won’t miss any challenge! I’ll see you and your pics in #Drucky52!
