It can be hard to break routine but if you want to ignite your creative side and try something new, a seven-day challenge is a good place to start. Commit to shooting a new photo of a different subject every day for seven days and you might rediscover all the reasons why you got into photography in the first place.
Driven by his desire to capture beautiful moments, photographer Ellis Reed first picked up his Canon EOS 550D (now succeeded by the Canon EOS 850D) eight years ago at the age of 18. Now, with the help of his Canon EOS R, he specialises in travel, lifestyle and landscape photography, constantly challenging his own creativity.
Ellis's passion for his local area and ability to see familiar environments with fresh eyes made him the perfect photographer to take on our seven-day photography challenge. He created seven different images over seven days, choosing a theme of mindfulness to tie each beautiful moment of his journey together – a theme he felt went hand-in-hand with rediscovery.
Here he reveals how he got on and offers advice for how you can go on your own seven-day photography challenge.
