What is the Daily Chicken?

A photo a day of my three chickens:  Dolly, Sally, and Blackbird.

Although they’re awfully cute, the chickens were not the primary inspiration for this project. For that I have to thank my two friends, Teresa Boardman and Mykl Roventine who shoot their own daily photos. Teresa shoots the same thing daily for a month while Mykl chooses something new everyday.

My Rules

Each photo must have something to do with my chickens. In other words, you might see birds, eggs, poop, or their coop. I will choose my favorite photo of the day. They are live models, after all, and sometimes they don’t cooperate even I do bribe them with oatmeal.

My Goals

One:  Learn to use my camera better. I’ve had it for two years and I just learned how to change the “F-stop.”

Two:  Master Learn Photoshop. I took a class at the Science Museum of Minnesota and promptly forgot everything.
