Here are last week’s photos. I’ve been meaning to post these all week and kept forgetting to get around to it.
I was thinking that last week was pretty week, but looking back over these photos, I’m very happy with the results. The first three are among some of the best photos of this project, which is impressive because the third one was just a quick snap with my phone during lunch. But it makes me feel like I’m starting to see things more and learning to compose things naturally and out of instinct, at least a little.
The weeks are flying by and in many ways, the project is getting easier. Even on days when I don’t have time to put much thought or time into it, it’s not as hard as it was early on to find something to snap a quick shot of. Looking back at the photos I’ve been taking recently, I’m really happy with them. And one of the best things about them is that many, if not most, of these photos are photos that I wouldn’t have taken if I hadn’t decided to do this project.
Another week down!
This week wasn’t nearly as good as last week, but it was still a decent week overall. Springtime is definitely helping ease some the staleness of Winter, which wasn’t even a good winter this year.
Week twelve may just be my best and favorite week of this project so far. Without a doubt, this was the easiest week up until this point. The photos came easily every day and my biggest problem on most days was just picking from a couple of candidates for the day. Some of these photos are among my favorite photos I’ve ever take. I’m very happy with this week.
I think week eleven turned out to be the first week of this project without at least one photo of a person or a cat. These photos span the range from getting really abstract and trying something weird to getting super lucky to being incredibly lazy. In the end, the results aren’t bad.
Ten weeks already! Seventy photos! Here are the photos from last week. Enjoy!
Another week down already. Not every day was easy last week, but the days that weren’t still produced photos that I was really happy with.
Friday turned out to be the first Instagram photo I’ve chosen for my daily photo. I actually had another photo selected, but when I took a look at some of the other photos I had from the day on my computer, I liked this one a lot. My wife and I had a date night at Jose Tejas and I Instagrammed a bunch of shots from dinner. This particular one just came out really nice and the filter actually enhanced the photo a lot from the very dimly lit shot that it originally was.
I can’t believe I’m already eight weeks into this project. Unfortunately, I feel like in the last couple of weeks I’ve sort of lost focus a little. One of my goals is to learn to see things naturally, but in the last couple of weeks I have’t been doing that at all. Instead, I’ve been forcing myself to find things later in the night before going to bed. On one hand, I’ve ended up with some photos of things I would have never otherwise looked twice at, but on the other hand, it feels a bit forced.
