A few days ago, I gave Mommy a challenge. Since we take a LOT of pictures, we use Instagram a lot. Our Instagram photos are taken with Mommy’s iPhone. Since we use her iPhone so much, she has been using her Canon 7D a lot less often than she should be using it and a lot less often than she wants to be using it.
When I really thought about this, I decided that I was going to challenge Mommy to post 1 photo of me on Instagram per day for the next 30 days using her DSLR. You can see more information about the challenge here.
When I challenged Mommy, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I kind of thought that I would just be encouraging her to use her 7D more. I didn’t realize that she TOTALLY forgot all of its function and settings! I don’t know if she realized that either. As such, I’ve been doing quite a lot of modeling.
Let’s take tonight, for example. Mommy and I went outside so she could take a photo for day 4 of 30. Can you guess how many photos she took before she got one that she wanted to post to Instagram? 6? 17? 29? 41? 52? 61? 70? Yes. She took 70 photos.
I figured I’d let this post serve as a bit of a “behind the scenes” glimpse into what really goes into each photo that Mommy posts as part of this challenge. The photos in this post are the “OMIGOD MOMMY WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” photos. The somewhat decent photos are the ones that I post to Instagram. The ones that are part of the photo challenge are labeled as such.
