Mundane Monday Challenge #121 : Learn Photography

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Do you want to learn photography?

Do you want to improve your photography skills?

Welcome to 121st week of Mundane Monday Challenge

I believe in order to learn photography, the first thing one must do is to start observing one’s own surrounding more closely and be aware of it.

Mundane Monday Challenge is a Weekly Photography Challenge that focuses on those seemingly mundane subjects that we usually do not consider taking pictures of and make a good photograph out of that subject.

Mundane Monday Challenge encourages you to take more pictures by being aware of your surroundings. The philosophy of MMC is simple. You can create a beautiful picture even by focusing on a very common looking, dull or so called Mundane subject!

All you have to do is look around, find a mundane subject, appreciate it and use your creativity to frame it in such a way to create a beautiful frame.

Benefits of MMC

  • Gives you a chance to take more pictures
  • Improves your observation skills
  • Improves your photography
  • Become more Mindful
  • Create beautiful images

In order to create beautiful frames all you have to do is to pay more attention to your surrounding. Try to include a mundane object in your frame. And by following or un-following the composition guidelines, make them look great. You can find a few guidelines along with pictures in the link below which can help you to get started.

Some Sample Guidelines to instantly better your photography

I want you to focus on making interesting frames and photographs. Focus more on photography.

Now I want you to make beautiful compositions out of those seemingly mundane objects.

So join Mundane Monday Challenge to Learn Photography

The geometric shapes in this photo are very striking. It’s kind of a frame and subject all in one!
