In the assignment ‘30 Days, 30 Pictures’, I was given the task to take a photograph everyday and talk about it. At first it was challenging but throughout the 30 days, I have enjoyed putting my creativity to the test every single day. I have learnt quite a lot because it has made me think on the spot and come up with lots of different ideas each day even though it was difficult to include a variety of photography styles. E.g. many times it was more effortless to take the easy option of photographing something inside and close up, whereas other times I am proud of myself for thinking outside the box and venturing out to take a more interesting photo.
It has definitely improved my organisational skills by having to upload something every day and quickly catch up if I had missed a day. The project has helped me be more self disciplined as well with it being time consuming and demanding.
I believe having done this assignment, I will benefit in the future for other projects because I am able to experiment with different ideas for a theme and use trial and error to get a good shot. Overall, I am more experienced as a photographer after this unit and hope to continue using my improved skills for future challenging tasks.
