Instead of posting photos for this week, I decided to upload my One Second Every Day video of 2017! I started a separate one for creative projects which I may upload as well. This is a pretty fun project and I’ve really enjoyed doing it these past couple years. It’s fascinating how much I’ll remember about a day it an event from a one second clip.
I’ve been feeling stressed this week about work and a lack of hours at my one job, so I forgot to have a post prepared for Wednesday this week. I’ll make up for it by posting some photos on Friday! For now, here’s a link to the newest Nostalgia 91 episode! We watched Cardcaptors. The American one. Spoilers, it kinda sucked.
I am a goof and forgot the photos I planned to share in Battleford, so today I resorted to the “Drive around until you find something interesting” method of photography. I drove around Saskatoon in the industrial area near where I work and brought my Instax with me. I happened upon a really cool mural on the side of a cultural events centre, and an old church. I enjoyed the fact that these two sort of contrasting images were basically next door to each other. I love street art and religious architecture, so this was a pretty serendipitous little adventure!
I goofed up my schedule for this week and forgot to set up my scanner so the photos I was planning on sharing are going to wait until next week. For now, I’m going to talk about some of my photography plans for the year! Not exactly an exciting post for the week, but I promise next week will be more interesting.
Not too long ago I had my first payed photography gig and took some photos of a local band at an open mic night. I got 50 bucks and snapped some pictures of them while they performed and now my work is on their Facebook page. It was a pretty small gig but it felt really cool. They were happy enough with the work to let it represent their band on social media and my photo credit went along with it. That night kind of inspired me to pursue photography a bit more. It’s tough to make a living at creative stuff but if I could even make a few bucks here and there at it I would be really excited. So this year I’m going to try to get even better at photography and hopefully get my name out there a bit more. My current work schedule has had me struggling to feel rested so I haven’t gotten out to do much creatively, but I’m hoping now that the holiday season is done I’ll be able to dedicate more of my free time to practicing photography. I want to play around with my EOS M3 and my Instax again. I have really been loving both of those cameras so I’m looking forward to it!
I know this post doesn’t have a ton of substance, and is kind of here just so I can get a post up on a Wednesday. I’m still working on keeping up with my schedule. Thanks for dropping by if you do, and I promise next week will have some photos! For now, check out my podcast that I always forget to mention here! We finished a full viewing of Cybersix last week. It was a ton of fun!
