30-Day Photography Challenge - Week 1

Tracy Byrne

I've had my DSLR for a year now and although I've greatly improved my food photography skills, the rest of my photography skills are still lacking.  One thing I've heard over and over again is to take photographs everyday to practice your skills.  I'm going to try this for the month of July!  I'm following the 30-day photography challenge from Little Bennet, let's see how it's going!

Day - 1 - Self Portrait - Selfies are weird and awkward, plus I have short arms.  I took this one in my bedroom by looking into my mirror.  I love that you can see the old photos in the back.

Photograph Challenge - Day 1 - Self Potrait | Pale YellowDay 2 - What you Wore - On July 2 I flew back to NYC from Michigan and because I'm always freezing on planes, I wore a long, cotton maxi dress to stay warm.  My friend Michelle gave me the dress and I love how comfortable it is!

During a visit to the Detroit Zoo with Stacey on my birthday we learned something very important - kangaroos don't like rain!  There is an exhibit where humans and kangaroos are together without a fence between us!  Because it was starting to drizzle, we were able to see all the kangaroos hop across the path to their little house.  The kangaroos were so close!IMG_1900Here is a grizzly bear done with life.Detroit Zoo Grizzly Bear | Pale YellowHere is my parents' dog Yogi, who like the bear, is done with life.Yogi the Newfoundland | Pale YellowStacey and I in the penguin house, we tried to get a penguin in the back.
