Photography Bucket List

To be honest, when I finished my 365 project last year I felt a little burned out. This collection of 365 photographs has become one of my most prized possessions BUT when it was all said and done I really wanted a break from my camera.

So here I am, three weeks into the new year and I've only pulled my camera out a handful of times. While it feels liberating, (in a childish sort of way. "Nah nah!" I don't have to use you camera. I'm in charge!") I am also beginning to miss having something to work towards photographically. 

So here is my solution, a Photography Bucket List! 

This list is meant to challenge me to try new things with my camera (and try try again until I get it exactly right). A bucket list is supposed to be the ideal, "If I could go and see anything in the world..." You get the picture. I have taken some of the pictures on this list already but I am aiming for THE sunset photograph and THE b&w white portrait. I'm aiming for photographs that I LOVE and I want to blow up and show to the world.

2. lightning strike
3. rainbow
4. star movement
5. raindrops on a flower
