Let's just say that as long as I get this 10 on 10 post done within a day or two of the tenth of the month, it's a success, okay? Okay.
This last month, I kind of went through a subtle but important change with my picture-a-day goal. Before, I worried a lot more about finding unusual angles or waiting for the perfect light or going for the unusual picture. While I think this is generally a good way to push myself to improve my photography, I started to miss just taking pictures for the fun of taking pictures, of getting swept up in a moment enough to whip out the camera (even if that moment wasn't exactly what I usually considered "picture-worthy" or even if the lighting was terrible).
So this 10 on 10 includes more pictures that aren't as deliberate in the lighting or composition or whatever. In fact, some of them might seem downright normal.
And that's kind of what I love about them.
Welcome to our life this last month:
my Instagram for the awesome shot Matt ended up getting), and the bottom picture was taken maybe ten minutes later of Matt using the same tactic in a different spot. We're so sneaky.
Guess that might be my go-to instant cool-down strategy when stuff like this happens in the future: take a picture of the mischief first and THEN worry about discipline.
