project 366 day 75


Keeping the (second) streak alive, so far.

Since my major blunder on February 21st, I have managed to keep a second photo streak alive. Since things are still busy, busy, there has been many a day I've just shot something on the fly and some days when I've hustled to take a photo only to remember that I had already done so earlier in the day.

This photo of the fish bottle was taken on March 3rd. I've been going back to glass a bit, but trying to vary my subject matter. This photo was taken late afternoon in the light coming through my office window. One positive thing about trying to keep this project going on a daily basis is that I have a new appreciation for how much light comes through my home/office windows on a daily basis and how to use that to my advantage. Morning brings great light to the porch and kitchen. Mid and late afternoon more light streams in through my living room and office.

More photos can be found on Facebook (Scrivo Communications) and Twitter (@ScrivoCom). I am still posting to Google+, but not so enamored of it now, so I tend to post less frequently there. More photos can also be found in my 366 Shots Gallery on my photography site - ScrivoPhotography.

I lost it between the Zatarain's and the coins.

February 22 was a sad day. I woke up and remembered that I had not taken a picture on the 21st. Streak snapped at 51 photos. On the 20th I took a quick shot of a Zatarain's box, then played around with some Photoshop filters. On the 22nd I dejectedly took a quick shot of some coins.

But I regrouped and am pressing on. Work got increasingly busy in January, not a problem on days when I may have been shooting, but on days when I focused on deadlines for graphic design and writing projects, it became more difficult to remember to take a shot. The majority of my shots have been taken on the fly with my iPhone, but the upside is I have taken a few shots that I love (one of my favorites is the grapefruit taken on Feb. 11th), some that have inspired design and illustration ideas, and others that are making me think of new photo projects. In addition to posting on Facebook (Scrivo Communications) and Twitter (@ScrivoCom), I've began posting to Google+ on a new business page, and less frequently to a gallery on my photography site - ScrivoPhotography.

Leap Year: 366 days of photos?

I wanted to pursue a project this year to help keep a camera, of some sort, in my hands more frequently. Since it was leap year, adding day 366 - I thought, why not a photo a day. My plan is to take one photo a day and then post them to Scrivo! Communications Facebook page and @ScrivoCom. Hopefully, I can get a shot each day. I think it doubtful I will post daily though, but who knows?

On my second shot, I decided to make use of the awesome light that comes in through the porch windows in the morning, and used a Coca-Cola glass bottle I had on hand. I really loved working on this shoot first thing in the morning, and I feel inspired to shoot more glass this year. I've already returned to glass, having shot a blue glass vase for 1/4/12. Two other shots this week were of kitchen implements and today's shot, an iPhone shot of some favorite books.
