I’m baaaaack! I’ll be posting more about my trip to Nantucket and Boston next week but for now, let’s finish up this challenge! The 30 Day Photo Challenge is officially over as of today (since it’s the 30th) but I’ll be posting Days 26-30 over the next five days. Today’s post

Update: I won’t be able to post while on Nantucket! I’ll begin posting Day 26 this Friday (and Day 27 on Saturday…etc). Hope you all understand! Keep sending your submissions for Days 26-30! I’ll sort them all out when I return. I also have no idea if that photo (above) is way too big. Y

Today’s challenge: anything you want! I love these shots. Not that I don’t LOVE when 30+ people submit photos but sometimes a smaller set feels really awesome. Your favorites? Mine’s #14. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 Tomorrow’s challe

Whew. Another late post. I’m in Illinois and don’t have great Internet connection. There is a chance that for the rest of the challenge, they’ll be going up late because I’m on vacation! I’m sure you all understand :) I absolutely love these color schemes! Great job, all. I also wa

Today’s challenge was to take or submit a photo of a childhood memory. Mine is a photo of nail polish. When I was REALLY little, I would pretend that each bottle was a person and as I got older, I just always kept a huge basket in my room. I love looking at these photos […]

Someone you love. I killed two birds with one stone and snapped a shot of my husband Adam and my grandpa. Both are men that I love a lot. I really feel love when I look at these photos. The shots of people feel like they have a level of comfort that you can’t achieve […]

Today’s challenge: sunsets. Obviously, if you are shooting real time, there is a really small window of time where you’re able to capture a sunset. It’s always fun to take photos early morning and right before sunset. I love the lighting. Anyways, meet the photographers: 1 | 2 | 3  | 4 | 5 |

Well, I’m about 40 minutes late. The day has ended and I’m just now getting this post up. It was one of those days where I seriously never stopped and now my brain feels mushy. BUT I’m glad to be posting this now because these shots are AMAZING. I love the color schemes. Seriously my […

These weekend posts always get up a little bit later than I plan but better late than never! Today’s challenge was to depict emotion (which in my opinion is the best subject). What do you think? Favorites? 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 Tom

Who knew street lights could be so gorgeous? Loved the interpretations and the contrast of the day/night shots. Which ones are your favorites? 1 | 2 | 3 | 4  | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 Tomorrow’s challenge: depicting emotion! I think of all the days, I&#

Experimenting with light is one of my favorite photo exercises. I love the variety of light sources in this set and it makes me even more excited for a shorter photo challenge this fall/winter where we can learn about settings, time of day, cameras, etc. Which ones are your favorite? 1 | 2 | 3 | 4  | 5

I recently spent a morning at Igloo Letterpress in Worthington, Ohio. My friend Erika had heard about their Saturday morning drop-in classes and suggested that we go! Along with Jess & Janine, we spent our time learning and making custom stationery. If you’re ever in the area, I would strongly suggest

We’re halfway into the 30 Day Photo Challenge, pals! The first week felt really slow to me but the second week-ish has gone by really quickly. How are you all feeling about it? Burnt out yet? I can definitely say (since I shot the challenge a month prior on film) that it takes a lot […]

At the end of September, I’ll be making a trip out to Massachusetts! I’ve been to Cape Cod and Provincetown but this time I’ll be visiting Nantucket and Boston to see Kellyn. I can hardly contain my excitement. If you’re interested in the print I posted above, I found it here.

Today’s challenge was all about eyes. Focusing on eyes (to me) can take on a few meanings. I think this variety did a great job covering all interpretations and I’m glad a couple animals got added to the mix.. Also, I had someone ask if I’d ever consider placing the photos one after the other

I got to snap some pictures of Sarah Storer (aka The Naked Redhead) last weekend. She’s a natural in front of the camera and too pretty for words so it was a piece of cake. The shots above are taken with my Canon DSLR (edited in Photoshop). The film shots are below, not edited. Do […]

Hi pals! I’ve actually really missed regular blogging during this 30 Day Photo Challenge caraaaaziness. It’s been SO fun so far but it is a lot of work and I haven’t been able to share what’s been going on or what I’ve been finding on The Internets. Here’s a visual update. Go

This challenge was to submit a photo edit that you like. It could be of a recent photo you’ve snapped or perhaps an old one you’ve always been proud of. My photo (very top) is a shot I took on my Pentax K1000 last weekend. I added some touches of vibrant color and I really, […]

This challenge is never about numbers, but dang! Only 18 submissions besides my own. I had a feeling that I would see a smaller number of submissions since this post really required you to take photos the day before or the day of. For the record, I have no problem with pulling from old photos […]

All my favorite things on The Internet lately. And they match? Aren’t I cute. Ellie of Mint just blogged and reviewed Austin Howe’s new book “Designers Don’t Have Influences.” I recently read his other book, “Designers Don’t Read” and I loved it. I’ll be giv

Today’s post seems fitting. Black and white has such a unique feel about it. Mine (the very top) was taken with expired B&W film. It’s even interesting to see how the tone/color is different than most of the digital submissions. This post is my favorite so far. And my favorite photo (don’t

Whew! Well it looks like weekend posts may be late or early depending on my schedule. Today I took photos of Sarah and then took a letterpress class! I had a blast but that and other plans delayed this post a bit. My “whatever I want” photo is a picture from the shoot today. Sarah is […]

Today’s challenge was to take a photo of something…from a distance. It doesn’t say how big that distance needed to be and I think that this set of photos gives us a lot of variety. Mine is of that black cat. I see that black cat everywhere. Always from a distance and it seemed to […]

I’m still a designer. I promise. And I’m designing a lot. It’s just more difficult to photograph printed design work (in good quality) to showcase. Ugh, I’m lazy. This photography thing is just so fun. Just shot my first roll of B&W film and I was really pleased with the results. So

SILHOUETTES! And the smallest number of participants yet. It was very awesome to see the technique and the interpretation of “silhouette” in these submissions. I love the contrast. Which ones are your favorites? Meet the photographers: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 […]

Well this post went up a lot later than I had planned but it’s seriously one of my favorite days so far. So much color and I really love the way each shot is really focused on a specific subject. Now meet the photographers: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 […]

There’s something about sharing meals that brings people closer together. Whether you’re in someones’ home, hosting a gathering, or dining out with someone special…it’s good for the soul. Photos taken on my Pentax K1000.

It’s like a variety show up in here today! Every five days throughout this #30dayphoto challenge, there will be a “whatever you want” theme which allows participants to take a break from any type of guideline. Meet the submitters: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | […]
