Photo Series: Little Lost Moments

Thursday, May 9, 2013

For the past few weeks I've been mulling over a photo series. I've been enjoying my iphone camera so much. It's amazing what a few good apps and some tutorial reading can do. Of course, I'll always love my big camera but exploring my iphone has been so rewarding. It's making me want to make more pictures. 

And what I really want to do is be better at capturing the everyday, unposed, somewhat-mundane moments of our life. I want photos of my kids eating their breakfasts, playing with legos, and melting down over broken toys and bad snack options. I'm afraid those are the moments I'm going to forget when I'm old and gray and wrinkly; the real moments that make up our life right now.

I've come up with a plan to help me document the small "insignificant" happenings in our days. For twelve weeks I plan to TRY to take a picture a day. Each week will represent a different hour. 

For example:

Week 1 will be 7:00 am. 

I'll set my iphone timer to 7am (because I need reminders of it just won't happen!) and then snap a pic sometime during the 7am hour. 

I will do that for a week and then switch to 8 am for week 2. And so-on-and-so-forth. 

Therefore, capturing our everyday life from 7am-7pm over the course of 12 weeks.

You can follow along on Instragram (see button to the left if you're not on Instagram or find me at @twocentsparrow). I'll also post the pics from the week each Sunday.

And if you want to play along use the hashtag #littlelostmoments and then be sure to somehow caption the hour too (such as #8am). And don't feel like you have to join in everyday for 12 full weeks. Lets be honest - I'll probably miss a few day myself. There are no rules; just fun! 

I'll feature my favorite photos from friends each week too. 

I hope you'll join me! We start on Monday!

I love this idea! I definitely want to play along. I don't think I will be doing the 7am one because, well, I am not usually out of bed during that hour.
