Artsy Fartsy Tuesday-It’s all a challenge — 12 Comments

  1. Wow – someone is feeling super motivated this year :-) Good luck! I think these are awesome challenges and I look forward to seeing how they progress. You’ve done an awesome job in the past of using challenges to improve your work and scope and I have no doubt that you’ll find a way to do that again this year; at this point though I think it’s less about ‘improving’ and more about trying something a little different.

    My challenges this year are writing related, so I shall live vicariously through your photography and maybe even be reminded from time to time to put down the computer and pick up the camera.

    • Lol..I am feeling motivated, hopefully it will last. Yes, trying something different is really what it’s about. It is harder actually to have a prompt that you are supposed to photograph. Really makes you look harder for that specific thing. And good luck with your writing goals, I’m sure you’ll do great!

  2. OH MY…..I just at this very moment sitting here at my computer, read an article on photography tips and the RULE OF THIRDS was so compelling and it’s the first time I’d ever heard of it. Now, I’m seeing it again on your blog! YES YES YES! Oh the fun, Mary, to learn something new every day either about photography or writing. I think about my profession, being a French language teacher. I love language, and education has been a field I’ve had to learn more about on the job, and under a great amount of pressure. But for me, the quiet space of light and shadow in both writing and photography is a different type of challenge, a quiet life. I am thankful for both profession and hobby, and to you I wish a wonderful new year of rich experiences and JOY!

    • Anita the rule of thirds goes way, way back in art history. Also known as the golden mean, it is the rule by which all art should be created. Maybe I’ll write a blog post about it, because to learn more about the whole concept is fascinating.

  3. We are hoping to do the pet photography challenge, but we only heard about it yesterday too. Hopefully the sun will come out so we can get some shots to use! We are good with one challenge, so we shall see.

  4. Hello, I always enjoy your photography. I love both shots, especially the doggie photos. I wish you all the best in 2017, Happy New Year!

  5. I will have to look into these. I do the Caturday Art every week. It’s not just for cats and it helps my photoshop skills. You can also use any of the online photo editing apps such as Dreamscope.

  6. Wonderful job on each challenge! These should really help you with your goals this year. I’m still thinking about joining the Pet Photography Challenge; I figure I’ll just join in once I make up my mind! :)
