31 Days of Tenley
So. I started a 365 day project of Tenley. Oh yes, I did. We are 31 days into it and I am not really sure how I feel. Some days I wonder why I even started, but most days I look back on what I’ve gotten so far and am happy that I am doing it. I have considered doing a 365 project for awhile, but didn’t want the pressure that comes along with getting a shot every day. Then, inspired by Drew B, I jumped on the bandwagon.
What I love about this project is I feel that I am capturing everyday moments. Un-posed, un-planned moments. And I love that. I already do a ‘weekly picture’ of Tenley, where I do a simple little shoot every week for the first year, but those are more posed. I try to get one really good shot out of those, and mostly keep them similar week-to-week so I can see her change and grow when put all together in a book. (Bristol’s book is still not done and she will be 3 in March! so, admittedly, I am behind…but, I do have the pictures!)
What I don’t love is the fact that I am using my iphone for this project and the quality is driving me a bit nuts. BUT, I think this will help me to take better iphone pix. And, doing this project with my ‘big’ camera would just take too much effort I think. For right now, anyway.
My plan is to use these pictures and create a little book at the end of the year. I feel like it will be a great story – in pictures.
So, I guess I’ll trudge forward with this little project. And try to keep it simple. And if I don’t get a shot every single day, I am going to try to be okay with that. Because really, I know there will be some days that it just won’t happen. But for now, we have 31 days of Tenley Rhyann.
(sorry for the bad quality of this collage…obviously, I don’t know what I am doing!)
