How An Egg Changed Everything.

Egg Photo Challenge – Possibly the best artistic decision I made in 2021

Back in March, I was feeling creatively dry. I’m sure it had something to do with all the instagram scrolling and because of that comparing myself to others and feeling “less than”.

*10/10 would not recommend.*

But, with that came a desire to restart all of those creative juices and the only way I could think to do that was to challenge myself. I had seen photography challenges, but I wasn’t inspired by any of them. So enter the egg challenge. I made it up. I tried to think of something easily accessible, something people typically have around the house.

An egg.

It’s simple, yet difficult to make interesting. And that as it. The decision was made and I made a list of photography styles and techniques and got to work.

For the first half of the month, I off and on dreaded my daily egg photo. I would wait until the very end of the day (like 11:15) to take and photo and edit it. Then, something changed around the middle of the month. I was actually looking forward to the egg photo. I was thinking and planning what I was going to do that day. I was researching editing techniques. I was learning.

I learned so much in the month of March that it has spilled over consistently into my current style of editing. I would still be in my funk if I hadn’t been tired of where I was as an artist.

So this is my encouragement to myself and to anyone else that may read this. Challenge yourself to grow and learn. Never stop.
