Project 52: My Life in Pictures {Week 11}

This year I’m participating in three different photography challenges. I know, I know. I do this every year and by the middle of February I tap out. Well, this year is different. These are 52 week projects, so I’m only obligated to take 3 photos a week instead of 1 photo a day. You see, the problem with 1 photo a day is there’s a lot of pressure. And that pressure can be overwhelming, especially when you want to make sure that the photos you post are decent.

With these projects, I’m easing the pressure and focusing less on perfection and more on picking up my camera {last year, I went months without shooting anything} and being creative. I also want to do a better of job of documenting my life. Looking back, that’s probably one of my biggest regrets: I didn’t take enough pictures of my kids when they were little and I didn’t take enough pictures of The Hubs and me through the years. I want to change that.

So here they are: pictures from the challenges and the memories attached…

Week 11 Portrait {living outside the stacks}

This week’s challenge was to create a portrait and submit in both color and black & white. I happen to like the color version better.

Local Food

Week 11 Local Food {living outside the stacks}

I took a picture of coffee, because, well, it’s a food group in my house.

Did you notice a trend with this month’s photos? Yes! They’re all black and white. I don’t know what’s going on with me, but I’m totally digging black and white photography. In fact, I’m loving it so much that I’ve decided to make this month all about black and white. I think it’s just so emotive and moody. You can see my collection of black and white photos by clicking here. What do you think?

If you’re on Instagram, I’d love for you to give me a shout out. I’m @DaenelT. And if you’re a book lover, I post book photos using @livingoutsidethestacks.
Happy Snapping,

  • Your coffee photos are always tremendous. The angles you take them from make the photos. I like the sepia tones you often use but also enjoying these black and white pictures. I think you pay more attention to a photos subject when it is taken in black and white. The color can almost be a distraction to the message and emotion.

    • Thank you. I’m so into black and whites lately. I think for the very reason you mention: you pay attention to the details. I also think there’s a lot of emotion in them. And, quite honestly, I’m enjoying learning new photography techniques.

  • As usual, these are fabulous. I prefer the color one of you, as well. I also have regrets of not taking more photos of the boys – mostly during their teenage years when they wouldn’t let me.

    • Thank you. Yeah, my sister’s boys loooooove the camera. Especially that little one. So I feel like I’m making up for what I missed by photographing them. My kids are pretty adamant about not having their pictures taken, so I have to respect their wishes. I’ve tried the whole I carried you for 9 months thing and they have absolutely no cares to give. LOL
