10 on 10 : March 2016 – Here is Where: Photographing the World Around you

It’s that time again.  The 10th came and went, and I had a great incentive to take more than 1 photo for my Project 366.  I’m currently taking a Street Photography workshop at Beyond the Wanderlust, called “Here is Where: Photographing the World Around you” with Lauren Mitchell.  Just wanted to try something different.  It’s been tough.  my default is to photograph my daughters’ pretty faces (which I didn’t fail to do this 10th) 🙂  But this week’s assignment was to look at lines, light, shapes, framing, layering and depth.  Not all 10 photos cover these compositional elements, but I tried 🙂

10 on 10 – March 2015

I thought I’d try to keep this blogging thing up.  Who knows if anyone actually reads this blog, but I thought it would be nice to get my thoughts out and photos organized for all of these photography projects that I’ve got going on.  You can keep up with my Project 365 and Project 52 on my Facebook page.

The reason for this post.  I’ve recently taken a workshop called Everyday Beauty with Ginger Unzeuta through the Bloom Forum.  It was amazing, inspiring and motivating.  Sometimes, I get hung up on creating the perfect photo, or why my photos aren’t sharp enough, or the composition just isn’t right, etc.  There’s always something in the back of my mind, the doubt, the frustration.  Why do I keep this up?  Why don’t I just give up?  I’ll save my reasons for another blog post and another day.  Right now, I’m just glad that I’m sticking with it.

So, through this workshop, one of our assignments was a 10 on 10.  Basically 10 photos throughout the day, or 10 hours.  I’ve decided to do this on the 10th of every month, just to make it easy.  It’s fun to see how a day in our lives look.  You can find my other  10 on 10s here and here.

Ok, enough of that, onto the photos!

Gotta start the morning right with some coffee!1

Thanks for checking out my pictures!  Oh, I should have mentioned that I’ve recruited a few photographer friends that I’ve met through Clickin Moms to do a blog circle this month for our 10 on 10.  Please check out Francesca Russel Photography’s blog post on her 10 on 10 here!
