Day 8: A Day of Just Sitting and Learning


Project Looking Glass - Day 8

It’s another lazy day today again but lazy in the way that I’m able to sit back and really learn about blogging, watch iTune podcasts, and some TED.com videos. Of of the major problems that I have is that I am in LOVE with my work and I stare at it all day. I review my videos over and over again even though it’s already published to YouTube and Flickr. I stare at my photo that I just took for hours, and I’m on Flickr for hours, too! Mostly just waiting for my stats to go up. This is something I have to personally stop doing and work on in order forĀ  me to have some semblance of a life. Right now I’m in Korea and I’m not working so I have literally all the time I need all day. When I get home I’ll be travel ling around the United States and visiting some great friends I haven’t seen in over 4 years. So I need to streamline my workflow so I don’t become overwhelmed with the daily ramblings of life.

Let me remind myself and you that this project is ONE video/photo/blog. But I want to share with you a videos and other media/articles I come across over the web. I have many subscriptions on iTunes and I came across Chase Jarvis. He has a philosophy that’s similar to mine which is to SHARE. EVERYTHING. And he does all this in video. And that’s awesome. I keep my videos to 90 seconds in length to fit to Flickr’s rules but might lengthen it when the time comes.

Chase and David (from Strobist.com) were talking about just doing a blog for the love of what we love to do. I love taking photos (though sometimes I want to kill myself in order to come up with something original and awesome and every time to outdo myself in some form or another) and I love teaching and sharing. I just do. And this blog is my forum for doing that. I also don’t really care about money all that much but for some reason stats is important for me. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I have an ego. This video here is long, sometime like over an hour – but packed with some great content.

Day 5: I had photo-block


Project Looking Glass - Day 5

I went through maybe about a hundred ideas day starting at 5pm till… really late at night. I always want to outdo myself. I didn’t want to do the same type of photo again and again. Even though this is only day 5, I’ve done two (never finished) Project 365 before. I guess that’s the reason why I’ve never finished a 365 because along with not having time to just sit and think – I never was ever able to find a way to outdo myself. Continue reading

Day 4: Today I’m a Homebody


Today I didn’t feel like going out. So I stayed home all day – minus the dog and trash. Eh, just one of those days.

Day 3: Make Pies. Not Wars.


Ever since waking up this morning, I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to do. I knew I was going to the amazing Tartine today and I HAD to create a photo with one of their pies. PIES!! But I also felt the need to challenge myself and try something I’ve only done once – a diptych. So I was thinking all day and I then remembered Megan had an Ugly Doll that had an apron and I was like, BINGO! But… what’s the story? How can I tell a story in 5 frames or less?

The more answers I found, the more questions that arose and more problems to solve. Continue reading
