The 31st Day: Retrospective



Well, that's the 30 days. It got a little tight at the end there - I struggled to take a photo every day, and used found objects in my flat a little more often than I would have liked. Nonetheless, I whimsically used one of the photos from this challenge for the monthly competition at my camera club, and it won a gold medal under the theme "Unusual Angles"!

It was a good to be forced to take a photo every day. For all the courses and lessons out there, nothing improves you like just getting out (or staying in) and simply taking pictures.

I'm looking forward to relaxing for a bit and getting back into taking photos when I feel like it, rather than on a schedule, but in time I can definitely see myself doing a challenge like this again.

Here's the list of topics, by the way:
Day 1: Self Portrait
Day 2: What I wore today
Day 3: Clouds
Day 4: Something green
Day 5: From a high angle
Day 6: From a low angle
Day 7: Fruit
Day 8: A bad habit
Day 9: Someone you love
Day 10: Childhood memory
Day 11: Something blue
Day 12: Sunset
Day 13: Yourself with 13 things
Day 14: Eyes
Day 15: Silhoette
Day 16: Long exposure
Day 17: Technology
Day 18: Your shoes
Day 19: Something orange
Day 20: Bokeh
Day 21: Faceless self-portrait
Day 22: Hands
Day 23: Lensflare
Day 24: Animal
Day 25: Something pink
Day 26: Closeup
Day 27: From a distance
Day 28: Flowers
Day 29: Black and white
Day 30: Self Portrait

Why yes, that is a Thinktank Retrospective pictured... Coincidence? ;)

Day 25: Something Pink


Found out my flat has like, nothing pink in it. And it was a busy day. Good thing I have a ninja-like knowledge of the colour wheel.

Day 24: Animal


Well... used to be an animal. Now it's an animal's skeleton/musical instrument.

Day 21: Faceless Self-Portrait

Meh. This one didn't turn out quite like I had in mind... some post-production helped. You get the idea.

Day 12: Sunset


Yeah... Sunset in Cape Town, this time of year. Sure. I was lucky it wasn't raining.

Had to settle for just getting outside and taking a few shots at the time the sun went down. It was actually quite pleasant, and the light was really nice and dusky. :)
