February’s 1 Second Everyday theme was an easy & obvious one that makes me smile every darn time I view this video: #SELFIE! I don’t post a lot of photographs of myself to Instagram, so it was quite a challenge coming up with a new clip for 28 days that featured more than just my 12 o’clock burrito consumption.
Mmmm … burrito …
In all seriousness, challenging myself to take a clip every day has been helping me view my surroundings in completely different ways. This month forced me to view portraits as more than just flat feature-less faces and I now have a desire to really bring my portraits to life. Capturing people’s raw emotions as opposed to their posed & prettiest selves can be difficult but really rewarding. In addition, this month’s theme really forced me to stop being so self conscious when it came to filming or photographing in public—something I had been struggling with for quite some time. ENJOI!
Music is “Oh February” by Y La Bamba.
