Dogwood Photography 52 week challenge- 2016

Last year Dogwood Photographyy began a new challenge that was designed to challenge all photographers, from beginners to advance.  I actually did begin the challenge but due to time (and maybe some laziness on my part) I never did finish it.  I did take many photos last year to go along with the challenge but just never seemed to either get motivated or have the time to do the editing.   So I’m going to try to finish it this year.  Many people who were unable to complete it last year are continuing with it as well. I also hope to start on the 2017 challenge as it is much more challenging.  The entire challenge is geared toward helping one improve their photography skills.  Along with trying to improve my own photography skills I will also be trying to improve my editing skills.  I am currently using PS Elements 13.

If you would like to take part there is a facebook group which is dedicated solely to this 216 challenge.

Week #1: Self Portrait.  This was taken the first week of 2016 so I at least did get one in on time selfie-web

Week #2:  Landscape:  Traditional.  (This one I shot last year for this challenge but did not ever edit or post it)  It was taken off of San Juan.
