Fiona introduced me to the concept of the 365 photography challenge, where you take a photo a day for a year. At first, I thought in the terms of a professional photographer. I mean, I am
technically one even though I often don't feel like it. One amazing photo a day! Gods, that sounded daunting. But I like to know what I'm doing, so I looked it up online. I came up with an article from here
that tells it all. For the sake of saving you all some of the clicking, I'll reiterate the main points here.
The 365 Photo Challenge was started by Taylor McKnight on January 1st 2004. He realized at the end of the year that looking back at the photos was similar to having his life for the past year flash before his eyes. So he's done it over and over, and he's even written suggestions and tips for other people (Note: Not even photographers. Every day people.) doing it.( Project 365: How to Create a Daily Photographic History )
Needless to say, the project doesn't feel quite as overwhelming now. I'm using one of my New Years' Eve/New Years pictures for Day 01. Day 02 will be shot after this post. I'm going to try not to get too far behind on uploading. Any "Hey, upload!" texts would be appreciated (if you are actually interested, that is). However, I'll be more prone to ignore them if you don't comment either on my Photobucket (specifically made for this challenge) or here on LJ (which I will only update weekly).
Pretty easy to remember? My friend phoenyxsansfyr
is also doing this challenge. You can look at her photos too!
