Casey's style will draw you in immediately--this gal defines "capturing beauty in the every day moments." We hope you will enjoy her responses, and be encouraged to grab your cameras this week!
Kristen: What is your name, age, and location?
Casey: Casey Visser, 26, Grand Rapids, Michigan
K: How long have you been participating in the Ten on Ten photo project, and how did you first hear about it?
C: I've been doing it since the very beginning, but I have a love/hate relationship with blogging so I have had large stretches where I haven't posted anything. Naughty, I know.
K: What inspires you about the Ten on Ten project?
C: It's a completely original idea...and something I never would have thought to do otherwise. I snap photos of things I wouldn't normally give a second thought about. Also, I am always excited to see what everyone else has posted...that to me is inspiration!
K: What do you find yourself taking photos of when capturing your day for Ten on Ten?
C: Mostly? Food. Which I find kind of funny about myself....I think my dream job would probably be a food photographer for Martha Stewart. I also love to take pics of nature, such as flowers.
K: Do you have a favorite Ten on Ten set from the past year? Why is it a favorite?
C: I think my latest one for May is my favorite...I think each set I post up looks better than the last, so does that mean I'm getting better? I hope so. I'm my own worst critic.
K: Has this project influenced how you see your daily life in any way?
C: It reminds me to stop and breathe. To take a moment to appreciate. Life doesn't always have to be one big blur, in fact it's uplifting to stop and click your camera along the way.
K: Why might you encourage someone to participate in this project?
C: I think it's fun, and totally laid back. So what if you don't post 10 photos, or post a day late. And in the long run, I know I will be thankful to look back on my "days."
K: What does an average day look like for you?
K: What does an ideal day look like for you?
K: Which photographers inspire you?
C: I recently discovered this blog: Enjoying the Small Things, and I adore her photography and words. Also, it was both MAV and Stephanie of 3191 (before there was a 3191, actually) that inspired me to even buy my Nikon....so for that I am truly thankful!
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and photos with us, Casey! It's been a treat!
