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 5:

Exotic Blue

Today I bought the most beautiful orchids I have ever seen, possibly the most beautiful flower I have ever seen in my life. The colour is stunning and I keep glancing over at them as they are just so vibrant and breath taking.

I decided not to do any special effects and to try and capture their natural beauty. So this photo is just as I took it with only a little bit of cropping. I must say I am feeling more confident in my photo taking.
