Photo Challenge Day 1 – Winter Clothing

dec-1-winter-clothing_edited-1I am so glad that the challenge does not have to be worked in any certain order.   Work today seemed all consuming.   I spent part of the work day on the road.   I got back to the office with emails that I had to deal with yet today and phone to calls to return.   It was just one of those days where at the end of the day I was tired because nothing was easy.

I looked over the list and living in Montana we have lots and lots of winter clothes.  So I grabbed some winter clothes put them in front of the stove.   I laid down on my belly and shot it from all sorts of angles, and then swapped out clothes and tried it some more.   This ended up being the best with a little Photoshop Elements thrown in.

December’s Challenge

If November was not challenge enough, I am taking on another one in December.   This month I am going to challenge myself to take a photo a day.   I follow a Worqshop, woman’s blog who’s creative work I admire.   On the last day of the November she told of this challenge she was doing for December.    I thought it sounded interesting enough to try it for myself.    I have tried photo challenges before, but failed often because I limit myself to scenic photography.  In my mind that requires you to get out and drive some place to find that shot.    This is further hindered by the fact that I work virtually for my employer from home, so many a  day I never leave home.   There is not even the drive to work  for me.      This challenge is definitely not scenic.  It will not only challenge me each day to take a photo but also will challenge my composition skills in ways I haven’t be challenged in in a long time if ever.      Here is my list of what I am to photograph this month.  Notice the third from last item; how could I not participate in this challenge?

I will be posting those to my Pinterest account at DianaAtLooking and possibly do quick posts here as well.
