Personal Photography Challenge 2021
7

Throughout 2021, I will be sharing one photo each week, TAKEN THAT WEEK, on all of my social media accounts. My goal is that each week the photo is one I feel is worthy of being printed and displayed at my biggest show each December. This is to help me get out and use my gear avidly, pursue my passion for photography, and grow as a photographer. It will also be fun to look back at the year retrospectively and see what was my inspiration each week.

I will not be posting them all here, but thought I would share my first of the year here to help inspire others to do the same. If you are interested you can find me at:

facebook.com/c.a.greiner

instagram.com/craig.greinerstudio

At any rate, I hope you ENJOY these two to kick things off....

Week 1: House Finch. Olympus OM-D E-M1 iii, 300f4 PRO + MC-20

Week 2: Bald Eagle. Olympus OM-D E-M1 iii, 300 f4 PRO + MC-20

Nice idea. A good start and I look forward to seeing your progress.

Not sure I'd have any chance of one printable shot a week.  More like one a month. If I'm lucky.

I like the concept quite a lot the fact that it encourages you to go out (safely) and enjoy/improve your photography.

I don't think I would have something worthy of large print per week. However, I can see myself picking my weekly favorite. I don't post here often anymore. But in your great spirit, I will share my first few weeks favorites. Thanks for posting and sharing your personal challenge 2021.

I will do this project but on another place.

I use fotocommunity.de for this

Nice idea, It's a challenge that I've been doing myself now for about half a year already.

My photos are posted on the site fotocommunity.de

here's the link to my shots

https://www.fotocommunity.de/user_photos/2460761?sort=new

One post a week with only one photo, is all that I'm allowed to post on this site because I'm currently only a cheap-skate non-paying member. A few times I have considered joining, (it's not that expensive and then I'd be allowed to upload more) but in fact I enjoy your idea here of choosing only one per week. Often the shot I post is taken in that week, but if not, I'll usually take one from the recent past.

The photos are liked and sometimes commented on, which makes it more interesting too

Love you challenge/project...

good way to force oneself to shoot, improve, etc.

Like your 2nd shot for the eagle.

Re: Personal Photography Challenge 2021

Very nice photo of the eagle. Like your idea, I've done something similar three times in the last ten years. A photo essay of the best (or most interesting) photo from each day of the year in my blog. Naturally, some of the images were much better than others but it was a way to get me out in forest and field, use my equipment and help to introduce others to the wonder of the natural world. Keep up the good work.
