This is my first upload on my daily challenge. Again, this was ALL done with just my iPhone. Taken, enhanced, and uploaded. The only thing I do from a computer is add the tags/categories.
I saw the patterns of the table top and the shadow and liked it. Plus the blue against the grey is nice.

I follow Scott Bourne on Twitter and ran across a post of his that I found VERY interesting. It linked to a blog by Tarsa Mar, a photographer who had talked to Scott about how to improve her photography. As a result, he challenged her to become better.
His challenge to her was simple.
- View another professional photographer’s work.
- Read one page in her camera manual.
- Take at one picture.
Each day. Every day.
She is blogging about it in order to document it and to encourage her to do it everyday.
I LOVE this idea. With some changes.
Instead of reading one page of the manual, I will read at least one page of a photo related book. I am always trying to find ways to be utilize the camera to it’s fullest capability. I have read my manual three times and will continue reading it.
I will be taking one picture each day, but with my iPhone. I think that a good photographer can take a good picture with any camera and I ALWAYS have my iPhone with me. In addition, I have several apps that I can use to edit/manipulate the images and then upload them to this site. In other words, every image posted to here for this assignment will be shot, edited, and uploaded with my iPhone.
I will view at least one other photographer’s images each day, but they don’t have to be professional. I think there are some GREAT amatures .
When I say once each day, I will try to average five times a week. Being a teacher, water polo official, and actually having a life, I think that 5/7 days is a very reasonable and doable goal. Yet, it will still be challenging and educational.
Why change the challenge? Because every individual needs to be challenged in a unique and personal way. As long as the challenge is real and goal oriented, I think that every person should modify their goals to fit themselves. I can’t be Tarsa Mar. I wouldn’t want to her any more than she wants to be me. Therefore, I choose to modify the challenge.
As I said, I will be posting five times a week and will include my reading and whose images I viewed. I encourage your comments and input. Be brutal, but be nice.
