Shooting for yourself

I have recently learned the importance of shooting for yourself. I feel like that sounds a little strange...like it should be "stating the obvious". The photography I offer to my clients is 100% me, my passion, my vision and what I love. So how is that different from "shooting for yourself"? 

I am in a group of 3,000+ other photographers that are given a new prompt every day that we have to shoot. I don't get paid for it. I don't get judged for it. What I get out of it is this: growth, excitement, new ideas, new discoveries, new found loves, new experiences, challenges, frustrations, and the list goes on and on. 

I have shot photo's of flowers, food, chairs, birds, coffee, squirrels, and this list also goes on and on. If you click here it will take you to a link of the photo's I have done & will continue to do throughout the entire year of 2018. There are days that I fall behind. I may get "stuck" on a prompt. Whether that is because I am not sure what I want to photograph....I don't have time... or I'm not sure how I, personally, am interpreting the prompt. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to interpret the prompts. This is how I see the prompt...the vision I have...

What I love so much about this journey are the things I am learning along the way. 2018 is going to be a great year for growth. I wanted to share with you some of my favorites so far. I hope you will be part of my 2018 journey. Whether that be as a client or the enjoyment of the prompts I produce each day.
