Happy Holidays!

Mickey Mouse antenna topper, with a texture of clothing I photographed last week. I obviously do not know how to properly use my on-camera flash yet.

My name is Alexis, and I am an addict. Since the day my grandparents bought me my very first DSLR, I have been crazy about photography. I've been attempting to learn as much as possible in these past 9 months, but it never ends- the one thing I love most about art!

Unfortunately, there is always a need for more or different equipment, new subjects, and sometimes just the energy to get out there and search for beauty, so I don't always take as many photographs as I'd like. That is why Sandra Marek, the mother of my best friend (and a dear friend in her own right), decided to challenge me to take a photo a day. She is an amazing photographer, so I am constantly bugging her for tips. Now it's time to figure it out for myself!

Right. As if I'll ever stop bugging her. LOL

Anyhow, thanks for visiting! My first challenge photo will come later today.

Welcome to the 365 day challenge to improve your photography. I'm so glad to see you on board. You have an amazing eye for photography - interesting thing is that you've already developed a "style" all of your own.

Here's your first challenge:
Find your camera manual :)
the daily shoot today is Make a photo of a pair of subjects today. People or inanimate objects are both fair game!
