June Macro by Lisa Briand

Since I am trying to focus my 365 mostly on images of my boys, I am going to try to post my nature photography faves separately each month. Here are my favorites from June.

June 2017 - My First 365 by Lisa Briand

I will admit to feeling a bit uninspired this month with my 365. I missed one day but I am sticking with it. This month that meant taking pictures of the boys watching TV some nights...and as usual, I have a terrible time making up my mind on some days so there are a couple of doubles. Here was our June!

 

May 2017 - My First 365 by Lisa Briand

May was a crazy month around here including the end of the semester at work, a trip to the hospital, a couple birthday parties, a carnival, field day and the pool opening!  I have thrown some extras in here from a couple days and one of these shots is from a day where I took exactly 1 photo (and I am a chronic overshooter) because I was too busy having fun but I'm including it anyway.

April 2017 - My First 365 by Lisa Briand

April was definitely a much more inspiring month for me. In part because at the end of the month I went to Insta Inspire which was an amazing opportunity for me to meet and learn from fellow photographers. It was so nice to have a weekend to just focus on learning. In fact, I have a couple of days this month where I am sharing two pictures because I just couldn't choose one!

Building a Rainbow by Lisa Briand

In March I participated in a photography project created by Emily Hamson of Lavender Lime Photography. Read more about this inspiring project here. It was definitely a challenge but I tried to make two rainbows, one solely with flowers and one with pictures of my boys. Here are the two collages of images that came from the project. 

March 2017 - My First 365 by Lisa Briand

In March I was working on a daily macro/nature project that took some of my energy away from my 365. I don't love a lot of the images but I pushed through and took one each day. Despite this, some of my images from this month are all time favorites so that makes it all worth it. 

February 2017 - My First 365 by Lisa Briand

For my 365, I am trying to focus on images of my boys. I love nature photography but I feel like I will not be pushing myself if I fall back on macro too often. Here are my images from February. 

My First 365 - January 2017 by Lisa Briand

Last year I did a Weekly Photography project and it was a great opportunity for growth. I always thought that a daily photography project would be too much for me because I work full time and therefore really don't have much time in the day to take pictures. I decided that wasn't a good enough excuse and to go for it. I'm trying to be forgiving and recognize that it isn't the end of the world if I miss a day. The hardest part for me is that some days I don't like any of the shots enough to want to share. But, I think it is important to document my journey so I'm going to show everything. Here are my shots from January.
