End of Year Reflections
I have noticed lately that Facebook has offered you the option of re-posting photographs taken some time ago. Many of the ones that I have seen started back in 2011 and 2012 when I was getting underway with my taking a daily photograph. It was fascinating (and at times uncomfortable) to see what I was doing. I know this is all a process, but there were definitely some cringe-worthy moments as I looked at the overly processed and textured images, images that were a great idea in my mind, but fell flat in the execution and just other picture-taking foibles. I also know that I had absolutely no clue of what I was doing–which I think worked for me. I picked a theme every month and did my best to interpret it-again, a lot of hits and misses there too.
The other day I received an email talking about how if I wanted to improve my iPhoneography I should commit to taking a picture a day. Synchronicity? Perhaps. As far the email was concerned though, this was an opportunity to buy an app that would give you suggestions, themes-basically doing the thought work for you. While I do not see myself going that route, I am still thinking about what that process might look like that would keep it fresh and challenging. One of my sisters is currently doing her own photo a day, centered on gratitude, which has been interesting to see unfolding.
Anyway a look back at the year at Move the Chair-all photos taken with iPhone 5s, and processed either with the iPhone 5s or iPad using a variety of apps.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit, comment, and follow. This blog has been a huge canvas to play with and I am grateful for the interest. Happy New Year to all!
