Throwback Challenge results

Well, Gabby and I are sticking to our word - below you can see our first three attempts at recreating our worst shots. I think I speak for us both when I say we needed this challenge. I have been struggling with creative ruts (read more about these struggles in my blog and it turns out Gabby has been dealing with a very similar issue. We started the challenge process together by using each other as models for our first photos - we were able to talk through the creative ideas and truly understand what the other was envisioning. We are both proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and would love to hear creative thoughts, suggestions and ideas from YOU - leave a note for us below!

Even though we are only half-way there we are already thinking of ways to keep the creative flow going!

The Advanced Selfie Challenge

I have mentioned this photographer previously in my blog when it comes to the advanced selfie. I subscribed to Sorelle Amore a few months ago. She is a high energy creative travel photographer who is passionate about her career. She is always pushing her own boundaries to grow and achieve all her dreams and goals. You can see some of her videos down below! If you get sucked into watching I hope you come back!

You all know I have been running low on creative energy and I thought a challenge would help me get my art gears turning again. So I have made myself an advanced selfie challenge. I am familiar with self portraiture but I have always stayed in a safe zone in fear of others opinions or the discomfort of public attention. I am going to try this self made challenge for 30 days.

So here are my rules:

  1. 6/7 photos must be taken outside of my apartment. I am giving myself one day to shoot in the my home just in case of weather or the strike of a good idea

  2. Must do a self portrait shoot once a day with a weekly blog post of them all even if they are failures.

  3. I must go out and do the shooting on my own, no other people to make feel less strange. (its time to be confident in my shooting and in myself)

  4. Try something different with each shoot. Since I am going to be using a tripod or near by props it can be easy to lock into one angle. I have to push myself to do something new and creative with each daily shot even if it fails.

    5. Have fun with it!

If you want to join me in my challenge tag me and let me know it goes for you!
