365 Days Photo Challenge by Katie Kate [January 2014; Day 1 to 31]

2013 was a great year for me. The year when I had my first travel abroad, the year when I launched this blog and attended my first ever blogger event. Aside from makeup, running and blogging, that year, I also realized how much I love photography, specifically, Mobile Photography. So to start my 2014 right, I decided to take my own version of the 365 Days Photo Challenge. 

 

365 Days Photo Challenge: January 2014

365 Days Photo Challenge: January 2014

At first, I thought that my 365 Days Photo Challenge will be a lot easier than the monthly photo challenges I joine last year because unlike those, I don’t have a list of things to capture per day. Mine is totally random. I just need to look for something interesting for me to capture and I’m done, but eventually, I realized that this challenge is not as easy as I thought but it is definitely super fun.

 

The are no rules and no prize for this 365 Days Photo Challenge. Just me, having fun while improving my photography skills and creativity. Maybe I can reward myself with a high-end camera or upgrade my camera phone if I will be able to complete this challenge. ^_^

 

I love mobile photography. I am not a fan of DSLRs because I find it too heavy and I am too clumsy for that. Though I know that the quality of the photo is way better when using DSLR, I still prefer using my Samsung Galaxy S3 in taking my daily photos. And besides, I cannot afford buying high-end camera as of the moment (but I would love to own one someday), so I have to maximize the use of what I have now.  I have a Canon point and shoot camera but I still like using my Samsung S3. :) And I post my daily photos in Instagram, so it is more convenient for me to use a camera phone and avoid the hassle of transferring the file from one device to another. :)

 

For the month of January, I found out that I love to capture anything under the sun, and with that I mean literally and figuratively. I find it amazing how the sun rays, shadow, and sun light could add an extra and natural effect to your shots. And of course, I also love taking photos of my chihuahuas, so I am sure that my Ellie and my Mojo will be part of my 365 Days Photo Challenge often. :)
