A couple of years ago, while making photography goals for the new year, it was suggested by another photographer that I make monthly “trips” one of my goals. At first, I thought there was no way I could afford to make monthly photography trips. Then he explained that these “trips” don’t have to be huge expenditures.
He went on to elaborate. These adventures could all be within a 2 to 3 hour driving distance of home. It could be a way to get to explore my local area and yet make photography adventures at the same time. I have to admit, this distance was doable for me and yet for the most part, unexplored by me so far. I committed to this goal for that year and made twelve outings.
I looked for events & happenings within a 2 to 3 hour radius of my home. I found parks, animal sanctuaries and hiking trails. As a matter of fact, I found so many things that interested me that I’ve kept this goal as a goal still—3 years later.
I’d like to suggest you consider this as a photography goal for yourself. If you want to improve your photography, if you are bored with your current subject matter and are looking for some inspiration, this is a goal that can help you. Pack some meals, plan some excursions, charge your gear and head out! You’ll be amazed what you can find that is practically outside your back door.
What Is This Page?
Since I love photography and teaching, I thought I would start a Blog page and share how I take my images, what I was thinking and about me.
