#The100DaysProject

Interests, Photography

I’m always on the lookout for a new project to do or make, especially since I don’t really know what I want to do with myself now that I have a bit more “me” time. I don’t want to fall into the rut of always spending my free time cleaning and taking care of home and family stuff and neglect the things that make me tick and feel alive.

Hence, the constant need to try things, to make things, to do things.

So one of the latest things I’ve discovered and have been working on is the 100 Days Project created by Ella Luna and The Great Discontent.

The project is fairly simple. Make something for 100 days. It could be anything you want whether it be painting, photography, inspirational quotes, cartoons…anything goes as long as it’s something that you want to make and you are interested in. It’s not a competition and there are no rules. You just create something, anything for 100 days.

And so just for accountability, I’m also going to share my progress on my blog.

For my 100 days project, I’m going back to film photography. Instant photos to be exact because the instant gratification of having the processed image in my hands make it easier for me to follow through than waiting for things to get developed at the shop.

For this, I’ll be using my Fujifilm Instax mini 90 and I plan to take simple everyday moments using this camera. It will be a nice change since I will have a physical copy of the photos I take and they won’t be just another photo sitting in my iPhone. Plus, since this is film, I will put more thought in what I want to capture as well as how I want to capture the image. It won’t be like with digital photography where I can take many shots and hope that at least one will come out when I look at them later.
