On this week’s show, I talk with Francesca Russell. Francesca is doing a daily photo project this year, a 365 project. She is part of the TWiP Family 365 group. I loved seeing her daily photos and wanted to know more about her. We talk about the years she worked as a stage manager traveling the US and Canada. That is when she started taking photography seriously and did her first 365 project. She took her first class at was Clickin’ Moms and is now Click and Company. Now, she’s done more 365 projects as well as many other projects and is always pushing herself to learn more.
Francesca talks about how she documents life with her two children. She’s loves looking for dramatic light and storytelling. And, she also loves using her DSLR for making videos/movies as well. We talk about why video is great and not as hard as I think it is. In part, when you are making family movies, you don’t need to worry about everything being just right. Francesca says, just try a little at a time.
A highlight of the conversation for me was about looking for what your children are doing right now that they may not be doing in six months. I love this idea. Since recording with Francesca, I’ve thought about it every day since.
