Yearly Schedule

Here's how I think I will take pictures for the year. I've given each month a general theme and each week in that month has a more specific theme so I will have a variety of pictures. I also hope having to concentrate on a certain theme each month will help me become better in all areas of photography and learn to notice the details in things I might not otherwise notice. I'm really excited to be creative and see what I can come up with!!! Wish me luck!

For Each month I've divided the weeks up and given them each a theme, so the numbers below each month represent what week it is, ex: March 14th-20th the general theme is graphic pictures that month, that week's assignment is to take pictures of something that has a pattern in it.  Make sense?  The next week, March 21st-27th I will be finding interesting shapes to take pictures of.
