I’ve stuck with it, and I’m half way done the 30 day self-portrait challenge. Yay!
I feel like the photos have improved over Week One, and I’m definitely enjoying the process. The biggest challenge this week was editing them down and choosing only one photo per day. I highly recommend this challenge to anyone who is feeling bored with their photography, and not consistently taking their camera out. It feels a bit silly at first, but then the creative process takes over and new ideas spring up. Kind of magical!
I can’t believe that I’m getting married in just a couple of weeks!
I was lucky enough to have Kinsey Mhire of Sincerely, Kinsey take some engagement photos of me and Simon a few months back, and for some reason I feel like posting a few today. She really is an amazing photographer, and I’m so glad that we managed to sync up while she was visiting San Francisco.
If you don’t already know her work, be sure to check out her inspiring blog.
I hate parallel parking! Well, I used to anyway. Since living in the city and having my car as my main mode of transport, I’ve had to make peace with both driving in super busy traffic and parking. Parallel parking has always been fine for me as long as it was a big space and no one was waiting for me, but in the city that luxury is almost never the case.
But, practice makes perfect, and after several stressful evenings of not being sure I’d be able to find a spot and leave my car, I’ve finally mellowed around finding and securing parking in a busy city. Whenever I relax, a spot just seems to show up. Perhaps its these pretty signs that have helped me relax.
I’ve embarked on a 30-day self-portrait challenge. The girls at A Beautiful Mess inspired me when they posted about this challenge a few months back. The only rules being:
~ I have to be in the photo myself in some way
~ I have to take the photo myself
I’m just over a week in and its surprisingly more difficult then I thought. After the arms length smiling selfie, one definitely has to get creative. These were all taken at arm’s length or with a self-timer. Nikon D800.
