I am entering the final month of my 366 photography project. Thirty-one days remain in 2016, and I am determined to complete my project despite the fact that I will be having knee surgery in seven days. Even if I have to resort to taking gory photos of my knee, I am going to finish this!
The past eleven months have been fun for me. Fun, a challenge, and a great learning experience. I enjoy shooting every day. To be perfectly honest, it’s going to be hard for me to stop this habit, so maybe I won’t! The more I shoot, the more I learn about my camera, my world and myself. I look forward to discovering something new each day to take a picture of. Practice and discipline has helped sharpen my photographer’s eye.
This month I also embarked on my first Clickin Moms photography class, One light: Off-camera flash. I am really excited about this class because I know virtually nothing about flash. Plus, I live in Seattle where it is gray, dark and cloudy for many months so flash skills will come in handy, especially post-surgery when I am stuck in my tiny house with minimal natural light, in the middle of December. Light and shadows. That’s what it’s all about, in photography and life.
In photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated.

And with that, here’s November!
It’s all about the journey,
