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 7:

Retro Magnum?

Today's photo was just a simple shot. I literally took one photo of an icecream stick sitting on my benchtop. The light was bad as it was taken this evening. So overall nothing special and very boring. But it amazes me how manipulating the colours can make a plain and boring photo look much more interesting. My 70's style benchtop certainly did help to add to this photo and give it a cool retro look too.
