30 Days Of Biking

April 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
It’s simple enough. All you have to do is ride your bike everyday in the month of April and then share your adventures online through social networks or blog sites. This isn’t a race, there are no special prizes and the only goals you need to reach are the ones you set yourself.

I did this last year as a way motivating me to get out and ride my bike more. I didn’t have any specific goals I wanted to reach other than ride more than I did the previous year. Which wasn’t all that much. As far as sharing my adventures, I knew at the end of the 30 days I would have a nice collection of photos and I knew I had to turn this into a project of some kind. I used my iPhone 4 and the Instagram app. I did use other cameras and took different photos at various angles, but surprisingly I ended up just using the images I took with my iPhone.
Here is what I did last year for 30 Days Of Biking 2012.

I also made each image as their own poster.

Other than the Instagram filter that was already applied, I edited these images using Adobe Photoshop CS5. However, I became a little disgruntled once I found out I could have saved myself a lot of time and pretty much do the same thing by using Lightroom instead. Oh well, lesson learned.

I took the 30 day pledge again this year. I have set some biking goals that I hope to reach later in the year. One of the bigger goals is to do a 50 mile ride. Before that happens, I need to look at getting a different bike that is a little more road friendly for longer trips. As far as sharing my adventures, I am once again using my iPhone 4 with the Instagram app. For this series of photos, I’m only using my iPhone and no other camera. I am also using a different Instagram filter as well.

This is what I have so far using Lightroom 4.

I haven’t decided on how to present the finished images, but hopefully I can keep the layout somewhat the same. I’m sure I will have another posting about this sometime next month and will more and likely have the finished images posted in the Snapshots gallery in the Current Work tab.
