After not completing it in 2010 and not even attempting it in 2011, I have once again opted to take on the the Project 365 Challenge. For those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about, Project 365 is a photography challenge in which you attempt to shoot one photo everyday for a year. It sounds easy, but I promise that it is far from.
My first attempt was in 2010. I was successful in shooting and posting one photo a day for the first 4 months. This was tricky since I didn't have a working computer at the time. I will honestly say that it helped me learn more about photography and how to get the shot the first time since I didn't have the capability to go in and edit anything.
Skip forward many months and here I am again. I am working with a better camera (though still not the DSLR I'd love to have) - a Nikon P500. This camera is definitely several steps up from where I was before using just a basic point and shoot camera. I also have a pretty good computer and editing capabilities. I do plan to keep the editing to a minimum when it comes to the photos for this challenge. I hope that I can use this project to improve my photography and to try new techniques.
I don't yet have a plan for proceeding. The last time I tried to theme my photos a month at a time to keep me motivated. I am going to try to just go off the cuff in the beginning and see what happens. A few friends have already joined me for this project and I hope to see more jump in with us. I'll post my daily photos here and hope you'll stop by and check them out.
