The last two months I’ve been working on a 365 which I have been on top of and currently under the days I haven’t yet taken photos for! A 365 isn’t a easy thing. At least at first. I could take a photo a day easy. See my toes. Bam! I got a photo. The next day. Bam, my other toes. That isn’t what I want my 365 to be. If you want that kind of 365 then good luck and please show me when you finish. It might look interesting.

I want my 365 to be creative and push what I know. I want to tr new things. I want to push creative boundaries and thoughts. Basically, I want to soul search. I feel like the last two months have been incredibly hard. I have yet to reach the quality I want in my photos. Then again we are always the harsh on ourselves and take the opinions of others way to seriously. That’s some adult advice I’ve learned thus far in my life! 

I’d like to take photos like Brooke Shaden, Kyle ThompsonRobby Cavanaughand Felicia Simion. All people who are so creative and I just adore their work. They push me to think a bit harder about what I want to create. I try not to get stuck comparing myself to these people. They are so fantastic! I recommend taking a look at their work. 

If I had to describe the last two months it would be with some creative highs and creative lows. A lot of lows. Near the end of February I ended up abandoning doing a photo a day instead to create a photo a day with older photos. Something I didn’t want to do but I felt like creatively I just didn’t have it in me to shoot. I rather take photos and piece them together in some kind of photomanipulation zombie. I cut and pasted or layered photos over each other to make a new creation. My biggest issue I think is time. I need to devote more time to photography and maybe getting some help in. Trying to do bigger things like these photographers I truly admire. They sure don’t sit around wishing they could make cool imagery. They go and create it.

Going in to March I’m already behind. The theme of the month will be black and white. I have loved black and white and thought about only taking photos in black and white. So to scratch my creative itch. I’m going to try tell a story for the month of march that kind of goes together. Will see if this works or ends up a huge mess.

Enough of the pity party. I’m very happy to have reached two months. Sure I haven’t been true to what a 365 is but for me, my 365 will be finished. Late or not. It will be finished! I made a commitment to finish this thing. 

As always thank you to anyone who took the time to read my babble. If you wish to see my 365 or follow my instagram which also posts my 365. 

If anyone is interested I went to Portland, Oregon. Check it out!
