I’m doing the 100 Happy Days project again this year. This year it’s been a great motivator to find something to be happy about every day. I started back in March and finished at the beginning of July.

7 Days–7 photos

The amazing RUKristin of The Awesome Ladies Project & I are cohosting a 7 day photo challenge.

Its called 7 Photos, 7 Stories and it’s an intensive online ‘bootcamp/challenge’ where over the course of a week you’ll get all the tools you need to take seven amazing photos that will each tell a story all on their own.
By the end of the 7 days you’ll learn:

  • How to use photography prompts to help you tell a specific story
  • How to use whatever camera you have to get great results
  • How to decide when a photo is good enough for your story
  • How to take photographs of yourself (selfies) to help tell your story
  • And how to see the story through the lens before you take the shot

Sound good?

I am so excited and hope you join us xx
