This month, I really wasn't motivated to take pictures. I'm not sure if the prompts weren't inspiring for me or if I was just in a creative rut but it was difficult to get the photos done. There were times when I was two or more prompts behind and it really irritated me. I was okay with being a day behind but any more seemed like I was missing the point of this exercise. I never actually missed a prompt so I suppose I should give myself credit for that.
One of the more tedious parts of doing Photo A Day is making my grid. Of course, it's not mandatory but I like seeing all the photos for that month in one spot. I load each photo into PSE and place them into a template I designed. I wanted the grid to resemble the calendar month the pictures were from.
At the end of last month, I saw a fellow Photo A Day-er post the exact same type of grid on Instagram, complete with the month and days of the week at the top. I had to know if they had a simpler method and it turns out they use a photo app called Collect (and it's free!).
Collect is fantastic for this purpose and even has space for you to write a little note about the photo. I loved it and would definitely use it for my Photo A Day except that for whatever reason, my phone refuses to save my Instagram pictures into my photo album. Bummer.
Anyway, here's March's list:
I'm participating via Instagram.
