It started off with me saying I wasn’t going to take on any New Years Resolutions. Which of course made me REALLY WANT to take on some new years resolutions. Plus, I’ve had this bug up my butt to do some video but in order to make my camera spit out what my mind’s eye has imagined, I’m going to have to learn to really use the damn thing. And then there’s this whole “stop and smell the roses” experience I’m starting to find through the lens (or, more accurately, through my clumsy amateur picture taking.)
Ten days in (and already a day behind on posting my shots…but seeing as this isn’t a new years resolution, there aren’t any rules I have to worry about following) I’m still hoping to stick with this endeavor, and I can’t help but wondering — beyond the camera itself, what will I learn about myself tackling a project like this? As a creative professional, I use my creativity for others on a daily basis. I use my creativity to patch the roof and pay the bills and I can’t tell you how good it feels to have an excuse to be creative just for the hell of it.
Have you ever tackled a project for you? I want to hear about it.
