Photo challenges like this one are the perfect solution if you find yourself in a creative rut. By taking a picture every day, not only will you become more familiar with your camera you will strengthen your artistic eye muscle as well.

Day 6: From a low angle
Day 7: Fruit

Day 20: Bokeh
Day 21: Faceless self-portrait
Day 22: Hands

Day 26: Close-up
Day 27: From a distance
Day 28: Flowers
Day 29: Black and white
Day 30: Self-portrait

If you're looking for something a little more intensive, you might want to try taking a year of daily photos - longtime readers might remember the monthly themes a group of us attempted to follow sometime back (click HERE for details). [Just as an FYI, the related Flickr group is no longer active.] You will also find a great article on the topic HERE.

If you miss a day, don't sweat it - just pick up where you left off. Perfectionism will squeeze the creativity and joy out of even the best artist or idea, so have fun with the challenge without letting it run your life!
