Leftovers

Found via Photojojo, this fantastic food blog has some inspiring Polaroids. Leftovers. The writer takes a photo of everything they eat, every day! This is a great type of habit to get into. If you want to become a better photographer - or better at anything for that matter - it is best to at least attempt to do it every day.


I, myself, have been attempting to do a whole mess of things every day. Here is a list of my "goals" (haha):
Update this blog every day (almost there... maybe not)
Update the shop site every day (definitely on the way to doing that!)
Draw every day (not even a chance)
Meditate on a somewhat regular basis (at least I try)


Every year I also try to stick to Project365, (also originally found via Photojojo a few years ago). Same concept as the food photos - you take at least one photo (of anything!), every single day of the year. Hence, 365! It's not as easy as it sounds though. I always get up to about March and then something shifts and I get out of my mode. Some days there are hundreds of photos and other days... you know.. those days where you're just hanging around in your pjs watching Martha... what's there to take a photo of? And then it starts to crumble. I must say that I have become somewhat of a better photographer because of the habit though!

So get out there and take some photos! Do what you love :)

i am enjoying the blog...if you do not want the 365 grind I am doing a 100 day project from my table...leaves a little more flexibility which I need to stick with it
