What I learned from the photo-a-day project is that it takes several shots to get the right shot. I had fun experimenting with different angles with my camera, but realized that taking pictures is a lot harder than it seems. My dad was a photographer for fun, when I was little and he had a dark room to develop his photos, so I have always been interested in photography and capturing those “special” or “right” moments. I learned to keep your subject in the center of your lens, so it was a little different for me to put subjects off to an angle, in the background, or foreground, etc. It was a challenge to portray my subject, different from how I had learned to capture them. I think it was interesting to learn how much you can capture in a photograph and how your audience has so many different interpretations of it.
