Taking Photos for Myself

If you ever talk with other photographers, eventually you will get to the subject of what they like to take photos, or shoot, on their own time.  Surprisingly a lot don’t shoot much except for clients.  I found myself i. that trap the past few years.  I used to love exploring through cities taking photos and one of my favorite things to do was night time photography.

Recently I got back into taking photos of the things around me, so when I came across a 10 day photography challenge on instagram. I decided to partake.  The idea was to take a photo each day for 10 days and each day was a different theme.  I managed to complete 9 of the 10.  For personal reasons I couldn’t photograph one day.  Some of the results were quite inspiring for me.  I also would shoot some non-themed related shots.

It was while doing this challenge that I took a photo that http://www.ptboexplores.com asked me to use for there website for the month of June.  I enjoyed the challenge and look forwards to shooting more for me in the not to distant future.
