If you've been following me on Instagram you know that tomorrow I launch my summer project titled "Me." I'm sure you have some kind of idea what the project is going to be about. Over the next few weeks I want to show you guys what makes me, me.
Twice a week for the next few weeks I'm going to be posting a 1 x 1 image on my Instagram that shows off a specific part of my life and on the blog I will be including a explanation for why something is included. Every photograph will be in color and only edited for clarity. Nothing will be photo-shopped in. I'll be just like any other journalism project.
I want to limit myself to the 1:1 aspect ratio for two reasons.
(1) It's very challenging. All of my photography for this project will be achieved through my DSLR. With a 1:1 aspect ratio for my final export I'll be forced to think outside (or inside) the box to compose my images. It'll keep me very thoughtful on exactly what is important and what exactly shapes me in life.
(2) 1:1 aspect ration images are really cool looking. There is a reason that Instagram uses it as its default. It also formats on a phone really well. I want to make viewing as easy as possible for all of y'all.
This is a project that I've wanted to do for a long time. I hope you will enjoy me on this journey.
Cheers and happy shooting!
