¡Hola! I’am Alex.

This week’s challenge is about You.

Take a self-portrait or selfie and post it on instagram with the hashtag #52wphoto2021

You can use your phone or camera, remember. Consistency over quality, we will get better :)

The idea is to capture 52 weeks, each week a new challenge.

Each week I will be uploading content to improve your photography!
