Do you know the project ‘Day in the life‘ by Ali Edwards? It’s such a cool photography project to document your real life, not just the special occasions. The little things, your everyday. The main challenge is to take photos the entire day through and document your actions and your daily routines.
I wanted to do this for some time now and yesterday I finally managed to start with it at the moment I woke up. I placed my iPhone at my nightstand, when I went to bed the night earlier, so I had it at hand in the morning. I challenged myself furthermore by using the VSCOcam and one special filter ‘T2’. I chose this filter, because at the moment I love the faded colors and minimalistic photostyle of Ronnie of Pink Ronnie and Liz of paislee press and wanted to get better in photography. I wanted to change my usual focus and now am pretty proud of myself, that I managed to learn this over this one day. Always amazed how fast one can learn new techniques, if you just concentrate on them for a little while.
Did you do this project yourself? What did you learn? I really like to hear about it. I want to do ‘Day in the life’ at least one time a year. What better way to document the changes in your life over the years. It’s these little things, that become big in the end.
