In 2013, I learned how to shoot my real camera on manual. I’m still quite the amateur but am learning more each time I practice. Usually, I grab it when we’re heading for an outing or a special event but I still heavily rely on my iPhone for everyday use. I noticed last year several blogs hosted “project 52,” a portrait of their kid(s) once a week for a year–one that originated here, I believe. So this year, in 2014, I’m challenging myself to do the same with my real camera. I’ll admit I’m a little nervous–gulp, swallow. But I think overall it will be a good way to grow this skill and track little milestones and moments for each of them. Welcome to week 1.
