The Sunday Snap

We all carry smartphones with us everywhere we go and I am always looking for inspiration to continue to learn and improve my skills as a photographer, especially using a smartphone. A good way to improve is to participate in photography challenges as they cause you to think about the theme and they do what the title says, they challenge you. And what a great way to kick off the new year and a new decade by participating in smartphone challenge curated by Khürt from Island in the Net.

The challenge is called the 52 week smartphone challenge which provides plenty of inspiration and has some thought provoking themes to keep you thinking and improve on all those rubbish awesome photos stored in your phone. If you would like to join in, click on the link above.

I also highly recommend you don’t do what I did by jumping the gun and submitting my first image last Friday. So I’m feeling like a bit of a goose but at the very least I have some good ideas and some photos for the first couple of weeks and can concentrate on the other photography challenge, the Tuesday Photography Challenge curated by Frank Jansen from Dutch Goes the Photo.

Frank provides some really interesting themes ensuring you think about how you will tackle it to produce a result and this weeks theme, Common, is no different.

The above photo was not what I set out to take however I was drawn to a large number of people standing on a rock wall silhouetting themselves against the sunset but I noticed this man sitting on his own watching the sun go down on another day.

To all of you who celebrate Christmas, I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and for those who don’t celebrate it, I hope you have an enjoyable time with family and friends over the break.

Happy Shooting.
