So, here I am doing something I claim I never have time to do…the 365 project where you take a photo of yourself each day of the year. The truth is that I always thought it was a cool idea, but there was a big part of me that didn’t know if I could be committed to it. It is a commitment that I am going to try to make. Even if it is with the crappy iphone camera.
Chris told me I should do it, cause he’s doing it, and I texted him back saying that I in a few sum words, “Needed to lose weight”. Well, I thought about it and there’s always going to be something that’s going to keep you from doing something if you let it. I need to just be sometimes and accept myself for the way that I am.
I do like my hair in this photo, but I’m not fond of the wrinkles that are starting to show (actually, I’ve always had bags under my eyes…even as a child). Like most people, I can be pretty darn critical of myself and I’m starting to see the signs of aging on myself. Also, I think this has a lot to do with my lack of sleep, which seriously isn’t healthy.
If you know me, you know I’m not a very revealing person. I plan on not revealing too, too much with this whole 365 thing, but I think you can tell a lot in a person’s eyes and I don’t know that I’m that great at faking emotion. Sometimes I am, just depends on my mood.
I used Daniel Diaz’s b/w filter from Action Central on this. It’s my favorite filter. I tried 5 other ones that frankly made my photo look worse. I would also like to expand my knowledge on color correction with this project as well.
So wish me luck. We’ll see where it takes me, considering I’m in a whole new place (literally) in my life.
Until next time Swellions!
Good luck! It’s such a fun and rewarding project!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
