One of my New Years Resolutions is to use my camera more. When I say use my camera, I don’t mean snap things with my phone.
I love having for my phone for those quick moment shots, but because of it, I feel like I don’t use my big girl camera as much as I would like to or should.
As I was making my list of resolutions, I tried to make a plan to carry out each goal.
I can’t believe that I am going to say this, but in order to carry out my camera resolution; I am going to take a picture a day for 365 days.
This is easy to do when your doing it with your iphone; but I’m going to do it with my big camera. Your iphone is typically always in your back pocket. I want to get back in the habit of taking pictures of the everyday moments and great events. I used to take my camera everywhere.
1) to sharpen my camera skills
2) to capture more of the little moments with the camera that I love
I did this once before. I will admit that it was one of the harder goals I completed; but I did it.
I even devoted a whole blog to it. I started the project in April of 2010 and finished in April of 2011.
Check out my previous project 365 blog if you like.
This time around I am so excited to start this at the beginning of a new year.
Instead of making it a big deal and devoting a blog to it, I’m going to share the photos here every now and again. I’m hoping once a week to every 10 days.
Last time, I spent a lot of time editing and putting a frame and date around each picture. This time I’m keeping it simple; in order to keep up with this goal.
So without further ado, here is the beginning to my Project 365-2015:
January 1, 2015: Happy New Year with Bed Head and all.
January 2, 2015: Welcome Baby Cade. Visiting my new nephew at the hospital. He is just hours old.
January 3, 2015: A shopping day at IKEA with my sister Kristin. I have a wall collage project on my hands.
January 4, 2015: A little 3 day old photoshoot with baby Cade. OK, and maybe lots of snuggling.
January 5, 2015: Taking it all down, goodbye pretty glass bulbs.
January 6, 2015: The ornaments are taken off, and now I just have this sad tree to stare at.
January 7, 2015: Yes!! I’m still taking the Christmas stuff down.
