Everything has seasons, and we have to be able to recognise when something’s time has passed and be able to move into the next season. Everything that is alive requires pruning as well, which is a great metaphor for endings.Henry Cloud
This intro is late, but I don’t think you actually noticed, right?
I have been really debating on whether to keep going with this project, as mentioned in the intro of my previous edition. Deep down, I know I need to keep going as it will be good for me and my creativity.
And this brings me back to why this intro is late.
I actually did not know what to share with you in this final edition of 2022. I even enlisted the help of my children to come up with ideas until I remembered this tweet shared by Ilford Photo.
The whole idea of photographing autumn on film sounded like an awesome challenge. However, I do not have film nor the time to make this happen within hours. So, I decided to use my digital camera instead and the only change I made was in the settings, making it take only monochrome photos.
And with this, I had an idea and I went with it. I even decided to give this month’s edition a name:
Imagine looking through the viewfinder of your camera and you see the images in colour, but when you take the photograph and look back on your camera screen, it is in monochrome. And this proved to be a very interesting way of seeing the world and documenting it for this project.
As November is the last month of Autumn, the tweet shared above and the fact I have never made any seasonal work as much just seemed right for this project. And with any project, looking for different ways of seeing is how I came up with the name. Also, this is the first time I have actually named any of my 30 day photo projects.
So for this final 30 Day Photo Project of 2022, I will be sharing with you some autumnal photos in monochrome.
