I completely lack the discipline for any hobby or project that requires me to do a specific activity once a day, so I’m in complete awe of the “Year of Lettering” project undertaken by Kelly Cummings of Spindle Photography. Kelly is a wedding photographer with a talent for calligraphy, so this year she decided to start a Tumblr to explore different styles and further develop her technique. A selection of Kelly’s favorites from the project are available as prints on Etsy and her Society6 shop!
From Kelly: I am a full time wedding photographer and started dabbling in calligraphy for client packaging and my logo, until I finally took a class in copperplate this past August. I’ve always wanted to be dedicated enough for some kind of year long project but a photo a day felt too much like work, so lettering has been an awesome way to explore different styles and typography as well, but in my free time at night. I’ve taken on a few custom projects as well, but mostly I love keeping lettering as a fun hobby. I’m really pleasantly surprised at the following the tumblr has gained, and I post some of my process on instagram as well which people seem to really enjoy.
This print is available from the Southern Weddings shop!
