Guys I made it! The first 30 days of my 365 day challenge. I'm noticing that the more time goes on, my work is transitioning more into what I have always found inspiring; emotional, dark, whimsical and experimental.
Primarily, before venturing into fine art photography. I mainly focused on landscape until one summer in 2013; I stumbled upon an image created by Brooke Shaden (I was in Maine visiting my fiances family at the time) and something immediately came over me. I knew at that moment that, this was the path I wanted to take. Her creativity enamored me to learn more and do the same for myself. So, when I came back home to Utah I started looking up different Facebook groups that included other photographers and models in my area; and I started collaborating. I did this religiously for about a year and then my focus went into other things. I had obtained my insurance license as I had switched jobs to an insurance company. One thing led to another and I wasn't creating as much as I would've liked.
So, last year.. ironically I was in Maine again visiting my fiances family and I just started editing. I explored different editing styles and techniques; mostly double exposure.. When I got back home I continued editing a little more than I had the last couple years but, I still felt like I could be doing more.
The 365 day challenge crossed my mind here and there but I never wanted to commit to it... but, on July 24, 2018, when I was on Instagram and I came across another fine art photographer who was just finishing up her 365 day challenge and I decided right then and there that it was time I do the challenge too. I can't express how happy I am I decided to do the challenge. Yes it lights the fire under my butt and makes me edit on days when I have no inspiration or desire but, every time I sit down to edit and I finish my picture for the day, I feel so satisfied and accomplished. Here's to the next 30 days! Cheers. xo ------ Here are my first 30 pictures
