Picture Spring (Self-Paced) is a 30 prompt photography project intended to encourage and inspire you to not only celebrate the season of new beginnings but to honor and nourish your creative spirit.
Photography is an artistic medium that offers instant gratification because it only takes a single click to capture an image. This convenience, ease and gentle guidance helps to make a photo-a-day project sustainable and fun! The intention with Picture Spring is to also elevate that click into a mindful meditation, an act of gratitude, a narrative of your heart. Each picture you create will be its own piece of art; a treasure in itself. Nothing else required. No end result to work toward; just your own unique vision personified in a picture. For the 30 prompts of Picture Spring, that alone is enough.
Once you enroll, you are given access to all 30 prompts so that you are able to shoot the prompts at your own pace. The prompts are NOT delivered via email. They are accessible through the easily accessible Teachable platform with the intention that you explore one prompt at a time (ideally one each day) to help open your mind and guide your lens to see and capture your life and the world around you in a whole new light. By focusing on the beauty that surrounds you—even amidst the dishes and laundry, deadlines and demands—your outlook will shift and change. Your photographs will become an extension of who you are and how you see the world as you discover your truest inner photographer. Your camera will not only become a valuable tool and trusted companion but a reminder to slow down, appreciate your life and take pride and joy in your creativity.
It is my hope that by participating in the self- paced Picture Spring 30 prompt photo project, you will not only let yourself get lost in the pure joy and satisfaction of expressing yourself photographically, you will find your authentic, creative, amazing self in the process.
