Days 21 and 22: A Blur

I barely got my shots in yesterday and today, but I am committed. Sick, tired, whatever, an image is going to be created. Stubborn? Me? Ha. Enjoy.

Day 21 was an iPhone capture: Get Lucky

Today…Day 22:

Truth: shoot was inspires you. Words inspire me. Light inspires me. You inspire me.

365Project: Playing Catch-Up

Days 16 – 20 got by me. But here they are.

Day 16: An outtake from a LoveMore shoot. The real images are still being edited. But I couldn’t resist using this:

Day 17: Sometimes it’s Texture, sometimes…it’s just a pineapple. This has become a favorite.

Day 18: Religious artifacts? Say what? Well, I was assisting a dear friend on a wedding shoot. What can I say. Oh, and it adds up to 13:

Day 19: I couldn’t resist a quintessential sunset.

Day 20: Let’s be honest, this was shot on Day 19, but 365 wasn’t having it. So, here it is: Reflection– Windows provide an opportunity to look in and look out. Often times what we see is distorted, but what if we look at windows as an opportunity to find beauty within the distortion? We are not always what we see.

This has been a real adventure, let me tell you.

Day 15: Brace Yourself

All right, i think I may start lumping these blogs into a few a week instead of every day, lest I drive y’all nuts. Plus, I may want to write something non-365 related. What a concept, eh? However, let’s keep it in the theme for the moment. Ready?

Brace Yourself:

No, really, that’s the title. My boy got braces today and in order to keep my “annoying” status in perpetuity, i photographed it and posted it for the world to see. In my defense, he did ask me to document this rite of passage.

Love and shutter clicks,

Sarit

Day 14: Bust a Gut

Tell jokes, laugh at your own foibles and try to enjoy every moment. The kid in you appreciates it.

This young man never fails to make me laugh. Ever. He’s in my son’s taekwondo class and watching him crack himself up tonight reminded me of how joyful childhood is and how far we veer from that silliness when we grow up. So, I dedicate this image to the grownups who need laughter the most. Go on, Bust a Gut!

Love and shutter clicks,

Day 11 and 12: My 365 Project

Day 11: Inspired by the view from the new One Down Dog  space.

Day 12: Inspired by the lights in a tunnel, reminding of of the natural pauses we need to take, no matter how fast we are moving.

Check out My 365 Project

After being inspired by Jenn Grosso‘s 365 Project from 2013, I decided that it would be an interesting project for me to do in 2014. As a photographer, I don’t actually shoot every single day. And everything I shoot isn’t always up to my standards of what should be posted, shared, etc. I am a die-hard perfectionist. But who in this industry isn’t? So, what if I shoot without my innate attachment to perfection? For me, that means using whatever medium I have handy: my iphone, my point and shoot, or my big mama camera. Equipment doesn’t make a photographer, your eye does. I am currently on Day 11. I have literally shot every day, come hell or high water. One night, it was at the dog park with my iPhone, one day it was during the crow’s bath time. I feel more inspired, more creative, and more at ease with what I do. And we are only at the beginning. However, 365 days of images is a huge challenge, and one I fear I may forget to do from time to time. It is why I’m letting go of perfection, why I am not ONLY shooting with the big camera, why I am being easy on myself and letting whatever happens to happen. I might even really get my crap together and post the images on the blog every day. What?!

You can follow my progress here.
