Summer is here and classes are out, so it’s time to pull out your camera and get creating! And who better to do that with than our very own Paige, a wizard behind the lens and creator of the photos you see on the covers of our Issues.
She put together this 30 days of photo journaling project, an ode to 30 days of journaling, but documenting through images.
Start on June 1, and try to take a photo each day! We made you phone screen backgrounds to set as your lock or home screen to remind you to do them.
30 DAYS OF PHOTOS
An open ended photo project on learning to be present while noticing and documenting the and recognizing the imagery that makes us feel, whether it be happiness, nostalgia or sadness; part of self expression is recognizing the things that change our perspective or feelings. Use this photo as a guide for your own photo journals, there are not right or wrong photos, it is simply what feels right to you in that moment.
Interpret in your own way and take a photo of….
- Opposites attracting
- Isolation through composition
- Look up
- Look down
- Postcard view
- Anti-postcard view
- Near & far
- The journey is the destination
- Self portrait in your favorite place
- Blue hour
- Something real
- Something fake
- A bad habit
- A good habit
- Wind catching (hair, fabric, a plastic bag…)
- Something that reminds you of being a kid
- Something that makes you feel old
- Your favorite thing about your best friend
- It’s all right
- A private moment in public space
- Document your personal space in 3 photos over the duration of 3 days
- Let it go
- Your favorite kind of weather
- Alone and loving it
- Your favorite part your morning routine
- A color palette that makes you nostalgic
- Body language
- DON’T TAKE A PHOTO: Find a moment you would normally take a photo, maybe you’re looking at the sunset with your friends or taking a walk some evening, find the moment you would want to take a photo of and instead don’t take a photo at all. Describe the moment in writing as you would a describe a photo to someone who has never seen what you’re looking at before. How does writing it down feel different? How it makes you feel to leave a photo you wanted to take untaken?
