This post has NOTHING to do with running and I’m somewhat okay with that : ) Last night I took my first complete rest day in a week and it felt gooood. I did spend some time with the roller and that also felt gooood in the hurt so good kind of way. Know what I mean?
Since I don’t have any running related news, I thought I’d share a little project I worked on this weekend.
As some of you know, I am trying to get better at using my new DSLR camera — and there’s no better way to learn than the hands-on way! So, this weekend I worked on a little DIY project and photographed it. The project is a super simple one: sugar body scrub.
I took around 80 pictures and ended up with about 4 that I liked. I did notice that the shots seemed to get better towards the end of the shoot, so maybe I just need to shoot a lot of pics to get into a groove!
Making the body scrub is super simple. All you need is some granulated sugar, coconut oil and scented oil. You just mix the ingredients together and voila!
I’m planning to do a few more DIY projects like this so I can keep improving my product photography!
Do you like DIY projects? What was the last one you did? I’m looking for ideas!
How many rest days do you take per week?
– Usually 1 complete rest day and 1 cross training day
