Welcome to the new website! We've decided to part ways with photoandfilmaday as we have stepped away from film completely and have decided to take a different approach to the blog. The new domain is www.mattanddanfromnewfoundland.com, and we love it. If you followed the old website then please take a moment to bookmark the new one. We've decided to get a more snazzy looking website that can showcase our current blog, while also have all our old projects under one roof. Go ahead, explore the site, if you have any feedback please let us know as we would love to make the website even better.
Last year we did a photo a day blog, meaning each calender day Dan and I would take a picture and we would post that picture on that same day, unless we were not handy to a computer. Overall, the results were great, we stuck with the theme each week for the majority of posts and it sparked a lot of creativity in Dan and I. However, it did have it flaws.
Taking photos every single day was a chore sometimes and Dan and I often said that we have way too many photos to sift through and didn't have time to focus on everything to give it the attention it deserved. The result was some pictures were rushed, particularly on busy days, photos were taken merely for the sake of taking them and no effort put into it. Many terrible iPhone photos or non-theme pictures were taken merely to appease the structure of the blog.
This year will be a bit different. We still plan to have a different theme each week. However, Dan and I have decided we only need to post 3-4 pictures a week, and they can be taken any time during that week, as long as they correspond to the theme. We hope that this structure will produce more quality pictures and we can devote more time to the pictures we take.
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy the new site and thanks for keeping tabs on us. There are a lot of people in our lives that comment on the fact they enjoy the blog so it is nice to know some people actually pay attention to it.
Much love to you all,
