100 Days Project

Robyn: Things that bring me happiness

I have never though of myself as a creative person but I have been inspired by my sister who is doing this for the 2nd year, so thank you sis.

My project is about taking a photo everyday of something that makes me smile and brings me happiness. I won't plan in advance what it will be, I will simply photograph whatever it is I notice on the day that makes me feel good. I want to do this to get into the habit of appreciating all the good things in life on a daily basis.

This project is also about learning how to use my camera and all the settings. I don't know much about photography but I really love it ever since I was given a camera last year. I work well with deadlines rather than left to my own devices, so it will be a good way to get the motivation to push myself to learn about photography and use something other than the programmed setting. I want to try taking different types of photos and to learn about what makes a photo look good.

Day 13:

First Step?

There's two reasons I love this photo.

One, it shows Lili's cheekiness in her eyes perfectly.

Two, the room is lit up with yellow and orange light. Despite being in Melbourne, we get to see beautiful sunsets which make our lounge just glow with light. Not quite as stunning as the sunets over the mountains we got to watch from our kitchen in Nelson but definietly a good second prize.

Oh one more thing I love about this photo...looks like that first step is not far away!
