52 Weeks Photo Series Tips

52 Weeks Photo Series Tips

Last year I completed the 52 Weeks Photo series. It consists of a photo of something (I chose my kids) every week for a year.

If you don’t know your camera very well, doing this series will allow you to practice more. I suggest brushing up on my Photo Tips series and using this time as practice. If your photos are sometimes too dark or too light, don’t sweat it. There will always be a next week.

I started out with single photos and eventually evolved into multiple photos per week. I tried to stick with a theme every week, something that was representative of that week in our lives. Some of mine were very obvious like holidays, but others were more specific to a feeling or other seemingly small event in our lives.

So as you see, you can switch it up to suit your needs. Don’t be afraid to really make this your own. You can take photos of anything you’d like.

I plan to host a linkup in each of my 52 weeks posts so that you can join in on the fun. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
