{spring has sprung}

Not many instagram photos this week. My phone decided to die on me, I had to replace all the software and basically start over. Luckily all my photos were backed up. I’ll be making it up this week and hope to have a really great series of photos to share on May 15. I have been trying out a new app called Over that allows you to add text to your photos. I like it sometimes but I am finding I really am a purist when it comes to altering my photos. For me it is all about color, expression, and composition. I will however continue to try out these sorts of apps to see how they work in my creative process.

I’m finding that as you continue on a really long project like this one, you have to have patience, resilience to keep going and always be on the look out for inspiration. I’ve joined a couple of photography classes this month to help with the inspiration piece. One on Clickin’ Moms and one with my dear friend Andrea Scher called 30 day treasure hunt. I have taken 30 day treasure hunts with Andrea before and they are usually just the right dose of creativity that I need to help me bounce back or keep moving forward.

In addition to the classes, I recently purchased an olioclip lens that I will be trying out as well. It is a 3 in one lens with  fisheye, wide angle and macro capabilities.

Finally, what am I going to do with all the photos I have been taking? I have decided to use some of them to create mixed media art and I will be creating a book that shows all the photos from day one until the end of the project.

Hope you have a great week and that your own creativity brings you much joy and pleasure.
