Hello New People! ...Come and introduce yourselves!

posted December 31st, 2011
Hey :]

So... I reckon we could be getting a fair amount of new people to the site in the next day or so. I remember when I signed up a few years ago it took me a while to get to grips with everything.

So basically, this thread is to say hi to all the new people, we don't bite (well...most of us don't, anyway...), and we're not scary! Come and introduce yourself to us! Who are you? Which corner of the world are you from? Why did you decide to join up?

Also, if you have any questions, however stupid they may seem, feel free to ask them here, most of us have probably asked them before at some point... :p

Happy snapping!
Naomi.

@naomi Hi Naomi, this is my second day on the site. I joined because I wanted a challenge and to sharpen/hone my skills. I would also like to learn more about photography, composition and techniques. I'm from San Diego, California. I hope to meet new people and establish connections through this site. :)

I was wondering if there was an intro thread. :)
My name is Ang, I'm from New South Wales, Australia & love summer! I'm a 28y.o. married, stay-at-home-mum, with a gorgeous 2y.o. daughter & another due in May.
I wanted to give myself a project or challenge, that I could record, share & learn from. I have owned a 450D for 3.5 yrs, but have not committed to getting the most out of it. (More in my profile.)

Looking forward to sharing our journies together - happy new year everyone!

Hi! My name is Jacki and I live in Brisbane, Australia. I'm excited to start this challenge after thinking about it for a couple of years! I have been a bit slack on my photo taking lately so can't wait to get back into it!!

Bring on 2012!
posted December 31st, 2011
Great idea @naomi, I recently joined and it is a bit overwhelming at first and I admit I'm stilll getting to grips with some things! I'm from Lincolnshire in the North East of England and wanted to try to improve my 'eye' and get a bit more creative with my photography. I just started a BTEC in digital photography too and also want to improve my technical skills. I've found being on this project so inspiring so far and the people have been helpful and lovely.

One question I did have was how do you see all mentions of you that people have made? Say, if I commented on someones photo and they replied, do I have to keep checking back to see if they replied or is there a quick way to see all your mentions?

Thanks, and hope all the new starters get the inspiration they're after. Welcome! :)

@marketingheart hi Laura. See the top bar you have 'you' 'upload' etc? At the end is a little speech bubble, this turns black when you have a notification. Click on it and you'll see replies on your photos, discussions etc. Hope this helps. Welcome to the project :)
posted December 31st, 2011
PS you wil only get notifications if the person commenting has added @marketingheart to their reply (unless its on your own project page or on a discussion you have started).

Hi I'm Kelly and I'm from Frankston, one hour south of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I just purchased a Canon 1100D yesterday because I needed something creative visually to work on. My husband left me the week before Christmas in 2010 and I'm just getting back on my feet so besides songwriting, singing, recording and dancing I needed a different challenge. In one sense I'm looking at the 365 challenge as a visual journal of things I'm grateful for and I think using the visual images will also help with my songwriting.

Now I've used a Canon 450D in the past before the ex took it with him but generally speaking I'm a beginner to the various functions on a camera. This is my opportunity to ..... play.

Nice to meet everyone.

Hi everybody, I joined this site on January 1st last year and I have never regretted it. By posting here, commenting on photos and taking part in discussions I have learnt so much. Good luck to you all and I'll look forward to seeing your photos as you work your way through the year :)

Hello, everyone! :)

I think your assumption is right, Naomi - there might just be a few newbies around at the moment; myself included!

I'm Sally, I've just signed up as I need something to make sure I keep up the photography and this looked just the thing! I've recently completed a level 1 Digital Photography course (T189) with the Open University (results out in March, so fingers x'ed!) and have definitely picked up the bug. I've also recently returned to paid employment after 3 years of working from home, so life's a bit hectic, but I really don't want photography to take a back seat now that the course is over.

Anyway, I have no doubt that others from my course will be making their way over here, too, so .... it's good to be here, and hello and Happy New Year to everyone!

Sally

Great idea, Naomi! Today's my final day of my first year, and I now feel like a seasoned veteran! To all of you newbies, I know you're going to love it here. I've learned so much about my camera and the interaction with others from all over the world is the best! (Indiana, USA here!)

One question the comes up on the discussion boards is about "the rules". Do I have to take a photo every single day? Can I use fillers? The only rule here is that there are no rules. This project is your own and you can do whatever you like with it. Happy New Year and enjoy your journey!

Hello - I just started December 13th. I filled the December calendar with previous shots. I am fairly new to photography as well but I think I have learned a lot since I started. I'm married & live in Wisconsin. I am anxiously awaiting to see the improvements I will make from learning from all the unbelievably talented 365 photographers! Sometimes I feel why post it - it looks like trash compared to some experienced photographers with the fancy camera's but I think it will be fun to look back & see the journey. Feel free to follow me & I will do the same - so we can grow together (at least I will). Kathy

Hello! I started yesterday but hope to continue through the end of 2012.. maybe beyond that if I'm still motivated! I'm from the US (New England) and my favorite things in the world are dance, friends, animals, laughing, chocolate, and naps! I work in radiology and have danced all my life. I still take as many dance classes as I can fit in my schedule and perform in musicals for fun. I am not a photographer but just enjoy taking photographs. I like to capture memories and things that I think are beautiful or interesting in this way. Like everyone else has said, there is so much talent on this site and I am looking forward to being inspired and amazed by everyone!

Hi All! I've been watching others do this project over the past year and finally decided to dust off my camera and join in. I like the fact that there is structure and a deadline to it. All most like homework.;) Hopefully forcing myself to do this will turn the randomness of what I have been doing into a volume of work that I can grown from. Here we go! (crossing fingers and plugging in the battery...) :D

Thank you for this welcome thread! I'm too self-conscious to post my own haha. I'm Chassity, I live in Indiana, and I'm here more to document a story than to make any purposeful effort at improving my photography. Don't get me wrong, photography is a hobby of mine, and I'd love to improve, but that is not the reason that I started this project. Since my birthday is 12/12, then 2012 should be the best year of my life, right? :) I want a complete story to look back on when 2013 hits. I'd love to find some others whose primary goal is documenting a year of their life.

Hello all!
I just joined the site today. My name is Annabel, and I'm 15 years old (16 in May!). I live Kentucky in the U.S.A.
I discovered photography about 7 months ago, when I started experimenting with my mother's Panasonic DMC-FZ7, which she had bought for recording family events. I discovered quickly that I had a real passion for photography, and I began a photography blog. (www.overjoyedobservations.blogspot.com)
Now I'm trying to challenge myself to learn more and to keep practicing. I discovered this website and decided that it would be a great idea to start this project with the new year. I hope both to learn from the more experienced photographers here and to continue to teach myself as I have been, through lots of practice.

I found this site today and joined immediately. I'm from Nebraska. I've been interested in photography for a long time, but finally got started learning a little over a year ago. I still have a lot to learn, but I like playing with different settings on my camera to see what comes out of it. I think it will be fun to come up with photos throughout the year and looking forward to the challenge of finding things to photograph.

I'm new to photography as well as this site, but would love to make talented friends! I figured the best way to learn about photography is to dive right in, so I've joined just about every site possible, read a million articles, pinned a million pictures, challenged myself to 365, and, hopefully, captured a few great shots. I live in Los Angeles, and most of my photos are taken out and about during routine daily activites.

Join me!

I'm Bryce. I have blue eyes and a slightly larger than average nose.

My wife got me a little point and shoot camera for Christmas. I know very little about photography. So I figured the internet might enjoy my attempts at picture taking. This site has some incredible pictures. If I post 365 (366 this year, I guess), maybe one will match up.

If this goes well, maybe I can justify a SLR camera purchase next holiday.

Onward I go.

Hello all! Been browsing around the website for a week now but just posted my first pic today. I've always been interested in photography and I think this project will help me learn and understand photography so much more.

I'm a professional photographer, taking pictures of other people's kids every day. However, I've been neglecting getting my own life documented. I have four kids from age 1-11, and I'm missing out on so many little moments because I never seem to have the energy to bring my camera home and shoot "after hours." I'm not looking to wow anyone with my mad skillz...just want the inspiration and a little bit of purpose to push me to get the camera out and capture a little bit of my kids' life each day.

Hi, I'm Sheri. I live in Long Beach, CA.
I'm totally exited to take on the photo a day challenge.
I think it will be a fun way to document a year in my life,
as well as taking a moment each day to find a bit of beauty
in something....

I am looking forward to focusing & organizing my iPhone photography - I'm giving myself themes to follow each week (may certainly borrow from this site if I get stuck...!). This week it's "beginnings."

I take a lot of pics of foodstuffs as well as everyday items from interesting angles. I also like to use Instagram to manipulate colors & shadows.

Looking forward to connecting through the year :)

Cracking Thread! I'm Jason from tropical North Queensland, Australia and I just recently finished my first year which in essence was all about Frogs, Bugs and Birds in my garden oasis. I have just started year 2 and it is a retrospective look at the 3 years I spent living in the jungles of Papua New Guinea where I documented my time by taking 26,000 photographs. The stories have been well rehearsed drinking beer with my mates and the photos are now being edited on better stronger faster machines. Papua New Guinea has never looked sweeter!

A warm welcome to all the newbies, I can remember only 12 months ago how that felt. This community is so warming, so encouraging, and so inspiring. Jump in feet first and get your hands dirty. If you put heaps into your project you will get heaps of knowledge and rewards. The biggest risk is to take no risk at all.

Enjoy the ride! Its a cracker!

Hi, my name is Minna, I'm 16 and from Finland, but at the moment I'm an exchange student and living in California. I love photography, I love to play with a camera and have fun. My camera is not very good, and I don't see myself as a good photographer. So if you have any tips, just share them with me, please. Usually I give up projects like this, but this time, I want to finish what I've started. Sorry, this might not make sense, I'm so tired right now.

Hello, My name is Stan and I am from the United States, but I live in Germany. There's an old saying that when you stop carrying your camera you stop being a tourist and unfortunately that has caused me to miss some awesome opportunities so I thought I'd try a 365 project to force myself into carrying my camera more often. Sadly, my good cameras are in storage and I only have a Sony Cybershot & an iPod Touch with me so I'm not expecting high quality shots, but it should still be fun.

Happy New Year all! I'm from Adelaide in South Australia (where the best wine in the world comes from...)

I'm an actor, playwright and food blogger at http://shutupandeatalready.blogspot.com

Usually I like to use words to express myself, so this appealed to me as a visual challenge to help me document my life over the next year.

Like most people, my life has the potential to change pretty quickly, as it has done all the previous years of my life, so why not capture the mercurial nature of one's own grace? I'm looking forward to capturing the poetry of the ordinary moments every day and I can't wait to see yours too. :)

Seems like the perfect New Year's Resolution to me because I think this will also encourage me to make the most out of every day. I'm really looking forward to what this brings (and the looks I get for getting my camera out all of the time!).

Hi everyone! My name is Aleksandra, I also get called Ola by family and friends, and I live in Adelaide, Australia. I am married, a mother of 2 boys and have been the unofficial family photographer for years, always with a camera in close reach, sticking it in people's faces! My kids said 'cheese' pretty much before they said anything else...poor little tikes! These days, I try to get them when they're not expecting me, or else its usually one of those lovely fake smiles that a 3 and 7yr old have perfected just to keep me happy :)

I've always taken photos to keep memories alive, and since entering the world of DSLR's, have found a real passion in capturing all sorts of inspirational moments. I still feel very much a novice in the photography world and am very keen to improve my skills and creativity.

I've been amazed by the wonderful pics that people post and am looking forward to seeing what I can create over this project. I'll be using my Canon 60D, my iPhone4 and a Sony Cybershot, depending on the day and where I am at the time :)

I'm Joanna from England but living in Crete, Greece for a few months. I've had my Nikon D5000 for a while now and have to move out of 'auto' mode, so I hope this project will help. I used to have an old Nikkormat film SLR camera which I loved and I find the digital camera SO complicated in comparison. I looked at the manual for the Nikon today and my brain hurt before I'd read 4 pages! I hope by the end of this year that I will have worked out some of the buttons. I long to take my photography up to a new level. And I'm so in awe of many of the photos uploaded here.
Please follow me if you want to and I'll follow you back. Hints and tips will be VERY welcome!

Hi, my name is Kiran, I live in Texas. I am married and have two boys and I have been taking snapshots from the time my first one is born 8 years ago. But my real love for photography only surfaced two months ago, after 2 years of buying a DSLR. So, I'm a big time novice, but I'm learning something new almost everyday with the help of this site and by taking a lot of pictures. My boys are my subjects most often, and they are tortured with my camera in their face all the time. I'm hoping this project will make my learning and growing(photography skills) more structured and enjoyable. Looking forward to find inspiration everyday.

My main goal is since having my grand daughter, I've taken more notice that all family events and get togethers, I'm NEVER in the picture because I'm always taking them! At some point, I want to offer affordable services to people just like me! Birthday parties, anniversaries, Thanksgiving, Christmas or whatever.

I tend to procrastinate with this type of project, so my plan is to shoot with my iPhone on most days whatever I'm doing, wherever I am at 9:00am each day. Should be interesting. :-)

I got to read about this project and thought this might be a fun idea to do. I'm a novice in taking pictures and just have a canon sx120 point and shoot. The bigger motivation to do this is to get a SLR camera later on and see how I can handle that. I hope no one laughs at my attempts.. :)

Hi! I'm Kirsty, from Cambridge, UK. Like a few others on this thread I joined last year (under a different name) but dropped out after a few weeks. This year I want to see it through to the end!

I don't have a flash camera or any great skill in using it, but I'm hoping to use this project as a way of documenting my year. Some of the amazing shots on this site put me to shame, but they've definitely inspired me to try to improve my skills.

This is Don from Prince Edward County in Ontario, Canada. I've always taken photographs since I was a teen. I used to have my own darkroom as a youngster where I loaded my own film and developed all my black & white photographs. Introduced to this 365 idea by my sister in law over Chrismas this year, so thought I would give it a try to share some of our local rural scenery with others online here.

Hello,
My name is Chuck. I am a United Methodist pastor living in New York. My wife and I had a freelance business 28 years ago before we went to college. I was photo editor for the college yearbook, and burned out a bit after too many hours in the darkroom. I decided to get back into the art form I love a couple of years ago. The digital learning curve was a little intimidating and I've only played at it since then. This year, I want to take it more seriously and get back to where I was, but with the new media. When I learned about the 365project, I decided this was the way to keep me focused. I am looking forward to this year in my own development and in appreciating the work of others. I look forward to your inspiration and constructive criticism, and I hope I can offer the same.

I'm 31, used to work a lot, travel a lot and shoot a lot, but since 18.10.2011 I'm a mother of a wonderful baby girl and although being a mother is the best job I could ever get, I don't have time to do anything else and that needs to be changed. Last year I tried 365project but stayed for 2 weeks only because I couldn't find topics for my pictures. This time I'm not giving up that easily. A few weeks ago it suddenly occurred to me that all you need to make a good photo is a good look around, that's all! So will keep my eyes wide open :) Good luck to you all and Happy New Year!!

Being involved with this site has made me very happy. There is so much talent, kindness and generosity here. And I love seeing snippets of people's lives from all over the world.

Hi there, I just read an email asking what are your photography goals for 2012. several people mentioned the 365 day challenge, and since i take pics 365 days a year anyhow, i thought i'd sign up. i got a new camera for my birthday in may, and still am learning how to use it. its my first camera without "settings" I have enjoyed photography for several years now, but this camera is a little challenging to say the least. i live in the country outside of indy, so most of my stuff is taken here at home. i love wildlife, clouds, and flowers, bugs, etc. also love taking candid shots of people. i am 57 years old and grandmother of 3, mother of 3, and wife to 1 hubby.

Hello everyone!

I'm Fraulein Angela from San Jose, CA. So, this is a NEW hobby of mine to continue to do each day since I wanted a NEW goal for the new year to bring. Since I've spent so much time taking photos of food, friends, families, and random things, why not post it as a daily project through the things that I do each day. Fantastic way to remember things through a year and reflect on how you spent it! :]

Hi all. I'm Amy from Kansas in the US. I did a 365 project a few years ago and loved or hated it, depending on how busy my schedule kept me. It was a big challenge but now I look back on those images and love how they tell the story of that year. I know I will find inspiration here from all of you and look forward to seeing your work.

I am Beth from Wyoming. I currently live in California though. (I hate saying I'm from California, because I'm not.) I just got a new camera to go along with my budding interest in photography. I decided to keep a 365 album this year for my family because I am really bad about developing my photos and putting them in albums. I figured I could do it this way also to share with family. I decided that my 365project will be more than just family. I hope that it is a way to help me learn more about taking awesome photos and using more creativity. I am really looking forward to pushing myself outside the comfort of point and shoot.

Hello, I'm Heather from WisCo. I have heard of 365 projects and decided that I would try one this year. Of course my everyday camera is out of commission at the moment, so I am using my iphone for now. I have a few older film cameras that I will eventually use for my project, but probably not until it warms up and I snap more than one photo a week. A roll of film lasts a long time when I am stuck indoors, hiding from the cold and in financial rehab after the holidays. I generally tend to take a lot of landscape, outdoor shots, so I am hoping that this project will take me out of my comfort zone. I am super excited to see what this site is all about and to learn some new skills; for that reason, I am not setting a theme...of course if I get into a rut, I may have to pick a weekly/monthly theme...only time will tell.

This year promises to be different and I wanted somewhere to keep a log of this brand new adventure. I hope you will like it :)

I'm just a step beyond beginner, but at least I know what I like in other people's photos, so that's a good start, in my opinion. I hope I have the discipline to keep this up.

I'm Gera from the Philippines. In case you haven't heard of it yet, my country's in South East Asia. You should come and enjoy the islands in summer or go over any time and experience the hospitality of Filipinos!

Anyway, like what @Naomi said, there are many newbies for sure, and I am one of them! I've been into photography since I was in the university, with the film/B&W SLR. I am not a serious photographer, if ever there's a category as such, but take my photography seriously. Not making sense, eh?! haha. I'm just saying that I like taking photographs of almost anything. Most of my photo collection includes food (yum!), road sides and skies (I went on field work/land trips/air trips), many places and beaches. I'm using Ditri (Nikon D3000 bought in July 2010) and Ti-es (Lumix TS/FT 10) and Goddess (Nokia e72) in taking snaps. I look forward to completing this challenge (something I have always wanted to do but got the chance only now) and showing you my side of the world.

Hi! I'm Mika - I'm from Los Angeles, CA. Last year, for a couple months I did a 365 project. I always wished I'd started on New Years. (Along with actually finishing it.) So I decided this year to do it but make it simple. Last year I spent a ton of time going through photos, editing, etc. It was just too time consuming. (This was on flickr.) This year I found 365project and decided the limitation to one photo per day might encourage me to keep it simple. I won't be creating new albums to show all the other photos - it's just one and that's it! I'm hoping to hone my photography skills and also journal my year. It'll be a little of both. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

Any positive criticism, tips, help, or ideas are ALWAYS welcome!

Hello, I am new here as well. I joined after seeing some other people off a photog board join here. I mostly take pictures of people, but I do like to photograph nature as well. I am joining here to get more practice with my camera.

Thanks, Melissa

Hey I'm Matt and I'm from the armpit of America, aka, New Jersey. I'm 18 years old and a college student studying chemical engineering. I started a project 365 on flickr last year as part of my new years resolution to use my camera more often. Well, I only got through 6 months...which in my opinion, was pretty damn good. I'm not a professional. I rarely take photographs but I really wanted to start again. My friend Tarynn convinced me to start one again with her for the new years so we both started a project 365 and are going to push each other to get it done! Hope I make the full 365 days this time around!

Hey! I have been intrested in photography and have taken a class on it, but I mainly joined this site to document the day by day life that I have so at the end of the year I have a "photo album." I am from small town North Dakota.... :) Hope to make some friends and have tons of fun on this site...as well as take up some photography techniques. :)

Hi All: I'm Angela, from Michigan. I wanted to do something creative as well, but I am not a photographer. At least, I'm not putting myself out as a photographer. I like to take random pictures with my camera. They are not artsy like some of the really nice photos I have seen here. But I am interested in all photos here from "this beautiful sunset" to "here's my favorite socks."

Hi, Tony from Amarillo, Texas. I've been into photography since the early 80s, but got out of it for awhile after I got married as the film and processing were too expensive for me at that point in my life. Got back into photography a few years ago, first with P&S's, then with the DSLRs I have now - Sony a100 and a300. Been shooting with them for about three years now.
Always looking to improve myself, and have committed to doing a shot a day for the year. I've already got myself a preset list of subjects to shoot, now it's just a matter of keeping to my commitment :)
Anyways, glad to be here, hope to make some new friends along the way :)

Hi everyone I'm Tamera I found the site because I've decided to do my own 365 project to help me push my creativity and help me further my photography knowledge and expand my current horizons. I'm very excited to push myself this year I hope my creative juices don't dry up on me! I'm always up for new friends! Any C&C is welcome & please follow me, and I'll do likewise!

I'm Dani from Victoria in Australia. I decided to join as I have had my DSLR for a number of months now & I'm not using it as much as I should be. So thought this would be a great way to take more pics with it & learn more about the camera & some new techniques!

Hello everyone! :) I'm Krizia. I'm from the Philippines (Manila, to be exact).
I'm a Literature major, and I graduated last March, but literature and words are definitely not the only art form I appreciate and love.
I joined 365/366 because I wanted to challenge myself and my perspectives. I wanted to be more observant and see everyday things from new points of view and from different angles than I probably would have if I didn't have this project of taking a photo every day.

I do have a DSLR, and I will be using it once in a while for 365/366, but considering how I want to see everyday things from not-so-everyday perspectives, I think most of my photos will be from my iPhone, because it's way more portable and convenient than lugging my DSLR around. :)

Open to constructive criticism and comments! Good luck with your own projects! :)

Hi my name is Lisa and I joined on the 1st :) I am from Christchurch in New Zealand, and have just moved up here from Dunedin, but am originally from England.
A friend of mine on Facebook, who is a photographer, had put a link on her page to this project that she just started this year, and I had a look and thought it would be interesting! I did photography at school, and am very in to taking photos, but mainly just personal ones for memories of what I have been up to!
I though this would be an exciting way to take different kinds of photos. I've had a tough past couple of years, so I'm using this project as a way of stopping and thinking about one special thing in each day, and really thinking about the positives, and the things that I am doing in my day. I think this is a great way to document these, and also to see what other people are up to!
Sorry, that was a bit of a long explanation!!
But I look forward to really taking part in this over the next year, and maybe even make some new friends as well!

Hi, I'm GIllian, I enjoy taking photos but have no great skill at it ! None the less I wanted to give 365 (or 366 this year?) a go partly to make me pick up my camera more. Good luck to all

Hi folks. I'm from Perth in West Australia and I've joined 365 to try and get the most out of a camera that is a/more expensive than I can really afford and b/beyond my current skill set. Oh well, the only way to overcome both of those problems is to use the camera as much as humanly possible :-) My initial hope is to improve my photography so I'm aiming to not tweak the shot before I post it. (Is that called Straight Out Of Camera?). That may change some months down the track but I want to start by getting the most out of my camera before i start improving my Abode skills.

My name is Mark and i live in Bristol in the UK. I am a stand-up comedian and do a bit of tv warm-up. I spend most of my life working, sleeping or eating. I dont't think i can figure out how to take photos of myself while i sleep, but there will be alot of photos of me working and eating. I can't promise beauty but i can promise a slightly unusual set of pics.

Hello 365!
Joined in on the fun around the 31st of December. I reside in the Northern Virginia area. I love photography, especially macro. I would definitely consider myself an amateur but have learned alot from experimentation. Thank goodness for digital photography, I can't imagine the amount of film I would have wasted with my "experiments"! I am always trying to break the rules of reason, what doesn't, won't or can't or isn't suppose to work, I try to find a way to make it work. Or at least make it look like it worked. So sit back, and enjoy the ride . . . It's about to get interesting!

Hello all
I'm Shaza from Northern NSW Australia. Joined 3rd January. Been watching a friend & colleague post photos on 365 for the past 12 months and thought I'd give it a go. Don't own any fancy cameras, but keen to see firstly if I can complete the project & secondly if my photography improves.
Time will tell!

Aloha! I'm Jaime, currently living in Hawaii. I joined the site a bit over a week ago when I purchased my first DSLR a Nikon D3100. I am so excited about finally having a camera and learning more about photography! That is why I joined this site. I really want to stick to the challange of taking pictures everyday and uploading to the site the one I like the best. I am really hoping to get some good feedback from others so that I can work on improving my skills. So please follow me if you are interested.
I am a SAHM of a 2 year old and with living in such a beautiful place I figure I really shouldn't have any excuses of not having something to photograph. However I will try not to post pictures of my boy everyday although I probably take pictures of him everyday.
One challenge I have is getting out of the house and taking pictures with a 2 year-old in tow. It is a challenge to take pictures and keep track of a highly energetic kid. Are there other parents of toddlers out there that have any advice on this one?

Hello all - I am a newbie to this project but definitely not a newbie to photography. Was looking for a new way to push myself and DPS pointed me here. So I'm jumping in - first pic is uploaded from yesterday. I'm a full-time pastor and see photography as a way to grow deeper in my faith - you can check out some of my other work at imagoscriptura.com
