These last two weeks haven’t been the most exciting, creatively speaking. Looks like I’m just waiting here for an opportunity to shoot some decent images. I do have tons of ideas, don’t get me wrong, the list is getting longer each day. But the time needed to put all these ideas to fruition is lacking. I only have a short amount of time in my afternoon break, as I call it, to get creative. That too short period of time between me getting home from work and the after school rush. So, I write down my plan, from concepts to props and poses (I have many inspiration boards to print, LOL) and then time’s up! So, I do my best to keep shooting using my iPhone, participating in monthly challenges as usually I can snap something in a minute or less and that’s just fine with me for now. Also, since I can now submit phone images to my portfolio, I create with that in mind. These photos will serve the challenge and build myself a more wider portfolio! I do have a real shoot planned for tomorrow (Lord help me, I still have some DIY props to create!) so I might have something new to share on the next post, yay!
So, that said, I’ll share some of my images from our ongoing November challenge on Instagram, you can check #fpoenovember if you want to follow us. I’ll also be doing a December challenge with another group, that one I also like because it’s more of a reflection on the year that just passed, and that helps to keep the important things in focus. We tend to forget so fast in this instant sharing world.

taking part in challenges keeps the mind thinking creatively regardless of the camera – and these pictures are just beautiful! Looking forward to seeing images from your planned shoot. Jo x
I do have the same exact problem with time… this year has been the worst so far, as I was incredibly busy and had no time to take many pictures that are still in my head, waiting to be “freed”.
I can’t do monthly challenges, but have just talked in my latest post about a personal challenge you are all welcome to join 🙂
As usual, your pictures are amazing. No matter how much time you have to shoot, your personality always shows!
