For me the best way to grow has been to challenge myself. Initially when I had started to realize that I had a decent hand at photography, I wanted to take it a level ahead. So I challenged myself to click a photo everyday, for the next 100 days. There were days when I got some spectacular shots. The other days I got worse than mediocre shots but by the end of the challenge, I saw a change in me as a photographer. It might not have been a transformation but it surely was a change in my sensibility and thought process.
Here are some of the shots I liked from the whole 100 day challenge that I took up.
