I miss printing my photographs. It’s a total given though, since I haven’t done any personal projects in a long time to allow myself to print out my images. One of the reasons why I did Project Life 365 last year was not only to find my creative side again, but give myself an excuse to print out my fine art again. For my birthday this year I decided to treat myself to create an album to showcase my favorite images, instead of printing a ton of square photos. I decided using MILK Books to create my album to showcase my year and I couldn’t be happier! They teamed up with Project Life 365 to give PL365-ers their own book template to efficiently showcase their year of Instagram masterpieces, and decided to go with that. Two weeks ago I received my 8×8 album in the mail and I am excited to show you MY Project Life 365 !
On two pages, I added two quotes from some of my all time favorite photographers that brought inspiration to this project. I love how the bold colors make the book more modern, plus I matched the colors to correspond to the facing page.
I can’t believe that this year is 3/4 of the way done! When I started Project Life 365 January 1st, I thought this would make my year go by slower. Slowly enough to enjoy the days more. Man, I was wrong! It’s gone by in a flash and now it’s September! Since it’s been a few months since I have shown some of my PL365 work, I want to show you some more of my favorite images I have done recently. I have some favorites in this bunch! I can really see my taste for iphoneography, editing and my artistic aesthetic changing along the way over the year, and I am loving how far it’s come. The one thing that has surprised me is how many self portraits I have taken in the last month or so. I really don’t like being on that side of the camera, so maybe it’s a sign that I may be more comfortable to show myself in a different way?
I’m really proud of myself for sticking through a year long project. I never thought I would not only feel my creativity being rejuvenated, but it really has help me gain more confidence in myself and my artistic eye.
