The ubiquitous 365-day photo project.
I must do one.
I’ve been wracking my brain of late, surfing the net, trying to come up with a photo project idea to get me out shooting more — and working on my camera skills — and I kept coming across Project 365s. But I kept dismissing them as a possibility for me.
Until I realized how much the idea scares me.
365 days? Straight? EVERY day? I pictured myself slacking off, getting frustrated and giving up, or cheating and posting old photos from my library instead of taking a new one each day, or worse: slapping up crappy shots that I put no effort into. I told myself 365 days straight was just too much. Maybe I should try 52 weeks or a monthly theme or …
… maybe I should just fucking do it. Face fear, resist resistance. Challenge myself and see where it takes me. Right?
So, the goal is to get better with my camera, and to do that I need to shoot more.
So shoot I will.
Project 365 starts on May 1st. Here are the rules:
There are none.
I lied. There are two:
1. The photo must be with my DSLR and not my iPhone.
2. I must post a photo that I took that SAME day. No retroactive posting of photos allowed.
All photos will be posted here, and on my Flickr page.
Also: I didn’t take the above photo. I just like it. [I like elephants.] It’s from another Project 365 by this guy:
See you in a couple days!
