December Photography Project: A Collage of my Favorite shots from this Year’s Projects

Well, I totally missed doing the November photo project because of my girls being involved in a traveling choir that toured every weekend. Plus I took a trip to Pennsylvania to visit my family and my new, beautiful niece! That was a lot of fun, but it meant that I had almost no free time to write for a whole month! Now that I am done with Christmas shopping, wrapping, and baking, I have a few minutes. 😉 As my […]

October Photography Project: Silver

I like to look for photography ideas and color schemes wherever I go. This month my chosen color scheme was silver. I like shiny things, so it was fun thinking up ideas for silver. My husband, Scott, also gave me a few ideas. I enjoyed this project, even though I couldn’t spend as much time on it as I would have liked. It has been a super busy month! Next month I will be running here and there and everywhere […]

September Photography Project: Brown

Here it is…the long awaited September photo project! I just know that you’ve all been sitting before your computer monitors holding your collective breath…waiting, Waiting, WAITING!! 🙂 I give myself a “D” for handing it in on time, since it is OCTOBER! The color I chose for this month is rather boring and bland, but I did find some objects worthy of my attention. 😉 Here they are. I hope you enjoy them!               […]

August Photography Project: Orange

  The color of the month is orange and I found it somewhat difficult to take any really pleasing pictures, as I am not a big fan of this color. The thing that I’m really loving about this project though is the challenge to find the mundane and try to see it creatively. Even if I am not a fan, the idea is to see things differently through the lens of my camera. The problem comes when I compare my […]

A Little Pick-Me-Up

  In addition to my regular photography project, I’ve decided to do another little project of sorts this summer. I am compiling a list of things that make me feel happy, and I will attempt to photograph most of them. I need a little pick me up as I have been down in the dumps lately. I decided that re-focusing my attention on good things will be a helpful practice. I have ambitious plans of my list including 100 things. […]

July Photography Project: Black and White

There is a special beauty that is black and white photography. It evokes different emotions in me than a color photograph does. When I was a little girl and would watch movies in black and white sometimes, I remember thinking that it was such a pity that those people had to live in such a colorless world. I thought they truly lived in black and white! This project again forced me to “think outside of the box” so to speak […]

June Photography Project: Yellow and Texture

It has taken me almost all month to do this project as I have had to wrestle the camera away from my outrageously talented husband who steals my camera on a regular basis! We also had to get a newer computer since our old one was slower than a caveman learning calligraphy. So I’ve had to learn how to run the different photo programs on it. All of that to say that I am finished! I finally completed my photography […]

May Photography Project: Purple and Line

  I have been working very hard on this month’s project and it has really challenged me and opened my eyes to the great beauty all around me. For example, one of my challenges was that I had an image in mind that I had been wanting to capture for awhile, but I could not figure out how to accomplish it, short of stopping my car in the middle of the freeway! There has been a major freeway project going […]

April Photography Projects (Green & Patterns)

  April’s projects were more challenging than I thought they would be, but I managed to get some interesting shots. I was constantly on the lookout for differing shades of green, which of course are abundant in the spring. There are yellow-greens and deep greens and everything in between. I even found some green patterns! Part of the reason I am doing these projects is to hone my eye to see more creatively. I want to notice things, looking for […]

Photography Plan of the Month

  It’s a new month and time for a new color! It seems that whatever color I choose for the month, all of a sudden I see it everywhere. This month I chose green because it is so prolific in the springtime. And especially after a long and drearily boring monochromatic winter, I enjoy that pop of color. There are so many shades of green! Did you ever notice that the new leaves in the spring are a pretty sort […]
