Wedding Selfie

I don’t think I’ve shared this.  I remember posting an image of this incident, but never the full video.  If you pay close attention at about 45 seconds you can see the quad level out (it’s so very subtle) and that was my fatal mistake because it didn’t clear the hill and I still had legal room to climb.  Once the forest starts to appear in the shot it’s not long before it happens, but I end this video before that point.  It won’t take much imagination to figure out what happens next.  A shout-out to my brother and son for heading off after it.  After all that, I still got the shot!

Last Night

Well, this is it.  At least for this year.  I haven’t decided what I’m going to do as I move forward.  My first thought is to continue.  It’s such a large part of me now especially after 365 consecutive days of doing it.  That’s a long streak.  But my goal was 365 and I did it.  So I may continue, but maybe not as intensively.

So, what did I accomplish.  My initial goal was to stay active as a creative-type.  I lost a job as the Creative Director of a TV station in December and instead of packing up the family and ripping my daughter out of her high school as a senior, I decided to stay put and figure something out.  In the meantime, I needed to remain active so the 365 project was where I landed.

Starting out was a little rough.  Here are some tidbits of advice – no explanation just tidbits.  I discovered most of these in my research before I started.  I get it now.  I’m not including any explanations – just trust me.

  1. Use a topic list to get started
  2. Take your camera (any camera) everywhere
  3. Shoot
  4. Shoot
  5. Shoot

You’ll develop the habit during the first month and before you know it, it’s December 31st.

Happy new Year Year!

I never understood the “First Night” naming convention. Shouldn’t it be “Last Night?”

Booth

Getting ready for a photo booth shoot.  You really can’t go wrong with a photo booth at an event.  Can’t wait to see what zany stuff’s gonna happen at this one…

Photo Booth = the original selfie.

Groupie

We all know what the selfie is by now.  So wouldn’t this be considered a “Groupie?”  A group selfie, right?  Well, that’s what we’re calling it anyway.  And how quickly the concept of a family picture evolves when technology becomes involved.  No need to Photoshop a missing family member in anymore.

This is what you do when a family member is away and you want to include him in the group selfie - aka groupie around our house.

Selfie

I think my dog Waldo is learning to appreciate the fact that I almost always have a camera handy and that he’s an unwilling subject in of a lot of my images.

A new twist on the ever-popular selfie.  I just always have to be slightly different.
