My husband and I were gifted airline passes for the entire year by my in-laws. We were thrilled and grateful for the opportunity, but we’ve never left our young kids behind to travel. So, we decided to do a (very) quick trip to nearby Chicago to see how everything would play out.
I’m back again to share what My Minnesota looks like along with a few of my favorite local photographers. I took a literal approach to the project this month and spent an afternoon photographing the environment. With the exception of the last two images, I captured this set using the lensbaby edge 80. I just love the tiny “slice of focus” I can get with this lens, as well as the dreamy look is gives to outdoor images. I hope you take the time to follow the circle around to see what the other photographers were up to in January. I link to the sweet and amazing Ally of Allyson Wasmund Photography. And here’s what January in Minnesota looked like to me…. Don’t forget to check out Ally’s blog to see what her Minnesota looked like!
Sometimes I give myself a little personal challenge or try a photographic experiment to spark inspiration or get me out of a creative rut. Last week after chatting with some photog friends, I was reminded how much I love the look of frelensed images.
Welcome back to my 365 photo project and the and then we snapped blog circle! I am sharing photos from December 20-26, and my 25th week of photos! This time of year is extremely cold in MN, so getting outside becomes a huge chore, and the daylight hours are at their shortest for the year.
