Another week! “They”, whoever “they” are, say it takes about 21 days to form a habit. There must be some validity to that, because I swear this is getting easier and easier. I am having less “Oh CRAP I forgot to shoot today!” moments and more “Oh man, I took so many photos today. How am I going to pick just one?!” All in all, not the worst problem to have. I really tried to challenge myself this week with working on my color processing. With documentary imagery, I jump so quick towards a black and white edit because it’s so much more emotional for me. It really strips away all of the distractions and makes you focus on the details and the connection. But sometimes color processes are necessary and the right move. The whole point of this little exercise is to hone in on my skills so I can be better for you guys, so I thought – why not?!
I snuck a few black and white ones in. Y’all can’t expect me to just quit cold turkey.
Day 15: Oh, you’re trying to clean and unpack, Mom? That’s cute.
Day 16: Jammin’ out to a song only he can hear – the headphones weren’t plugged in 😉
