A February Photo Challenge

I’m not that good at photography. I enjoy it, but I need to learn the technical skills, and I could really use some practice. Last Christmas B got me a fancy new camera. I’d wanted one for so long, and I think it was a little bit of a “thanks for toughing it out for 4 months while I was away at basic” kind of gift as well.

Well, another Christmas has passed since then and I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t made the best use of the camera. It has spent way more time sitting in it’s plush pocket that I ordered from Etsy, than it has out in the world. My phone is always snapping shots. I suppose it’s more convenient, and usually sitting right there on my desk, or kitchen counter. Don’t get me wrong, I have used it a bit, but not enough, especially considering how much I wanted it.

Here are a few photo’s I’ve taken over the last year:

Maybe?

Again, I think some practice is in order, so I came up with a photo challenge for February. I’m challenging myself, but if anyone is interesting in participation please feel free (any kind of camera, including your phone will do). If you want to share on social media just tag the photo’s with #BeadsBobblesButtons so that I can find them easily, or share a photo or two on the Facebook page! I’d love to see what you guys are up to.

Happy snapping!
