It’s officially halfway through 2022! Can you believe it?

Now that we’ve reached the 6-month point, it’s possible you might feel a little stuck with what to film for your 1SE. That’s completely normal. The excitement of a new project can slowly turn into the frustration of the mundane or seeing the same thing over and over on your timeline. Although we encourage you to embrace the authentic moments in life, we understand if you need some help brainstorming seconds to film.

So we put together another list of 100 things you can capture. Use this for inspiration now or save it for later when you’re stuck. We hope this helps carry you to the finish line of 365 days.

And if you’d like to see more ideas, check out part 1 of our list here.
