Hello, friends! I’m pretty far behind with sharing these updates, but since my last post was pretty photo-heavy I wanted to share my usual half months worth of photos. In my last 100 Days of Mornings photos I shared some tips for daily projects and #4 was to switch up the subject matter of your photos. Sometimes you don’t have the time–or energy–to take think about what to take photos of. Those are some of my least favorite, but probably the most true to life pictures that I take, because I don’t have time to wipe the dust or move an unsightly cord from the view of the camera. But if I’m on top of things with my daily project I can be a little more intentional and take a photo that still represents my life, but varies things up a little. Some things to consider:
1 // What’s the weather like? And how can you capture that in your photos? Throughout this project I’ve had the chance to capture the last of the winter snow, spring rains and now… pollen? #summerallergies #summeristheseasontohibernate
2 // Take a look around you. What’s in your surroundings that you see every day but doesn’t always stand out? How do those things change every day? Is there a place that has a fun play of shadows based on what the sun is like? Did you forget to clear a cobweb from a corner of your ceiling? What does your nightstand look like in the morning?
3 // Are you doing anything that’s different from your usual routine? Those are fun things to document!
4 // How can you take a look at your daily things (like, for instance, your cup of coffee) and make them new? Put it in a new environment that’s still part of your morning.
5 // Do you have pets or children? They’re fun to take pictures of each morning too. Just think about all the cute moments and shenanigans they get into… or maybe some of the frustrating ones… that we don’t stop to document? Those little moments are the memories that put a smile on your face later on, so document them.
Do you have any tips for varying subject matter in a daily project like this?
I’d love to hear them! I already feel inspired to finish out this 100 Day Project and really take a look at what’s around to me to see how I can make the last thirty days of this project feel special.
But let’s jump back to Day 28, which is where I’m at with updates in this month/month and a half of not updating/only posting book reviews. 🙈 Life. That’s all I have to say about that.
Day 28: 5/1 @ 7:28 AM. Spring is here and the weather alternates between sunny & warmer and cold & rainy cold, but I’ve ditched my coat even when I should probably wear it.
