Do a 30-Day Photo Challenge for the New Year!


Photo by Brown Eyed Flower Child


I've been doing photography for this blog for a long time, and learning how to communicate visually has been a real journey for me.  Obviously, this has meant taking lots and lots (and lots) of photos!  I've cycled in and out of trends and learned that trends are not just for clothes or hairstyles... there are photography trends as well!

For instance, in the early 2010s, it was all about documentation-style details. Everyone was wanted those up-close shots and bokeh backgrounds. But on Instagram, I've noticed that it's more about the wide shot, especially when highlighting travel destinations. People love to be able to picture themselves where you are, and see what you're seeing. Over time, I've adapted and adjusted my style to fit each platform.

Part of the reason I've been able to roll with the punches and not get stuck in a certain style is because I'm always challenging myself. And let's face it, when you've been doing this for a long time, it's pretty certain you might run out of ideas from time to time.

But no worries! If you've been feeling a little bit stale, I think it's a good idea to take a step back, refocus, and do a Photo Challenge!

Journey through 2019 ... Year In Review

East Village New York NYC

So it's 2020. Are you psyched or a little hesitant about the New Year?! I feel mixed things. On one hand, I have the overwhelming feeling that this is going to be a really great year 😎  I'm not sure why! On the other, there's always this nagging notion that time is moving too fast. I wish I could pause the world sometimes rather than feeling like I'm just bouncing from moment to moment. But 2019 sure was an interesting year!


First of all...
