The first week of my Travel By Month project has been fantastic. I am constantly working on creating content and gathering photos.
During the first week I posted daily pictures, created one video, reviewed a restaurant, and wrote a blog post. I have also been continuing the daily pictures on my Instagram.
Because I live 40 minutes away from the city, I found it easiest if I planned 2 or 3 trips into the city per week. Since my first week was about the Cathedral Hill District, on December 1st I spent about 4 hours taking pictures and gathering content.
I am definitely getting used to taking pictures and videos in unforgiving conditions. Between the cold, snow, and uncontrollable lighting, it was pretty challenging. I also am getting used to thinking ahead, last weeks video (Into The City) was definitely a stressful creation, but through the chaos I found myself coming up with better ideas and ways to improve the project even more.
This coming week I will be putting what I already know and merge it with what I learned this past week. I have gotten much more capable of efficiently creating content, and keeping myself organized even with a busy schedule. This week is all about downtown St. Paul, and the unexpected adventures I will be going on.
