A Very Mills Christmas Card by Michael Durr

Since 2010 I have been photographing my good friend’s Christmas card. Every year we don’t think we can top the previous year and every year we tend to set a new bar. It has become an extremely fun holiday tradition and it has reached the point where I send their card to my family. Not only is it fun to send these out, but it is equally as fun discussing ideas throughout the year and of course the shoot day is a blast. (Sometimes) Take a look through the holiday card archive and let us know which one is your favorite.

A Child? by Michael Durr

I am more then excited about the birth of our son Logan James Durr. He has been so much fun already and his mother and I are looking forward to the many adventures ahead. 

Now, someone get me the Ghostbusters!

He's short, his belly button sticks out too far and he's a terrible burden on his poor mother.

52 Frames by Michael Durr

2017 52 frame photo challenge. I admittedly fell off the wagon last year, but I am going to give this another go. I love the inspiration and the extra push to get off my bottom and shoot.

Feel free to follow my on Instagram @instadurr or check back here for updated images from the challenge.

2016: 52 Week Photo Challenge by Michael Durr

Dogwood Photography Presents

52 WEEK PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE

The weekly challenge will be in one of 3 categories:

Portrait: Portrait photography is really about capturing the essence of a person in an image. A portrait image can range from a classic portrait to candid, or from street photography to a selfie. Each time this category comes up we will dive into a different area of portrait photography. The main focus should always be a person/persons (or maybe a pet).

Landscape: In the context of the #dogwood52 photography challenge, this category is pretty broad covering both traditional landscapes, and some non-traditional areas such as urbanscapes. Don’t be afraid to really explore your surroundings in this category. If the focus is the environment you are in, it will qualify as Landscape in this category.

Artistic Impression: When this category comes up, you really have room to express yourself. You can interpret the assignment literally or figuratively. Unlike the other two categories that are more focused, the main focus of this category is to let your creativity shine.

I wanted to do this challenge to help inspire me throughout the year. Check back each week for a new photo.
