And welcome back! As usual, there are countless new projects, thoughts, and ideas on my mind. The end of 2010 kept me really busy, and I disappeared from Metacom Creative for awhile. I am hoping I will be able to find more time in 2011 to get back to posting!
One thing I am really excited about is a Photo-A-Day project that I have started. My goal is simple: Take at least one picture a day. The execution is a bit more difficult. It can be hard to stay creative during the regular Monday-Friday, 9-5 routine, so I am hoping this project will force me to use more of the creative part of my mind throughout the daily monotony. When I feel like I am lacking some imagination, I head over to The Daily Shoot for some ideas.
Here are a few pictures from the first week. I started January 2nd (The project isn’t a New Year’s resolution, because we all know how those turn out!).
As you can see in the picture from January 9th, I also got my hands on a new toy. I picked up an old Argus C3 camera off of eBay and can’t wait to get my first roll developed. It is quite the change from an SLR, with nothing being automatic. It lacks a lightmeter, so I have a feeling I have a bit of learning to do.
As for web projects, I haven’t been doing much freelance. However, in October I got a job as Lead Front End Developer at Bertino Designs in Ontario, California. We just launched our new site, so check it out at BertinoDesigns.com! Work has been keeping me busy and I love the projects that we have been working on.
I will be trying to update Metacom Creative at least once a week with my Photo-A-Day project updates, so stay tuned. Happy New Year!
