Winter’s chill winds are upon us! What’s a mother to do?!! Maybe you are not the type of person who enjoys trudging through the snow on snowshoes, and skiing and snow boarding, ahh, no, not so much.
So let’s add to our winter survival kit – tools to help us survive the darker days and stave off cabin fever.
Photography projects are a great winter distraction! Set out on your own photographic journey or include the whole family. Whether you’re sporting a little flip phone or a Nikon DSLR you have the power in your hand to create!!
Start out with a few simple ideas – take pictures of feet, tools, hats, coffee, doors, anything that catches your eye. Seeing the world through a narrow point of focus is fascinating. In no time you will be hooked.
And once you are hooked, tap into all the online photography instruction on the world wide webinator.
Check out Creative Live for all kinds of free photography classes. Photographers at every level enjoy the educational opportunities on Creative Live. ( This online channel is extremely valuable. I have learned all kinds of skills from their awesome instructors.)
Among my favorite photography bloggers are:
David Peterson’s Digital Photo Secrets
Christina Greves (Christina also has programs for creative entrepreneurs.)
“Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see
and everything to do with the way you see them.”
So pick a theme and run with it!
Email your awesome pics to firstname.lastname@example.org – I would love to post them!
