Project 365 Week 07

The project continues to be a challenge for me. Some have said congrats on making it this far, and thank you, but I still can't imagine what it will feel like on something like day 229.

I was thinking about this the other night. With my dedication to this project, as well as my 52 Profiles project, plus working full-time and taking 7 hours of school, not to mention having a life outside of all this to spend time with my wife and friends, am I crazy? How can I possibly feel like I'm not accomplishing anything? Where is this leading me? What do I hope to gain from this?

In pursuing my passions I hope to find the answers.

Here are my three favorite shots from this past week.

Project 365 Week 02

project 365 week 2 It seems that every day is another challenge to out perform myself. Meaning that each day I get worried that I won't have any good ideas left by the end of the year. But I'm finding out that once I actually commit to doing a picture the creative process takes over my mind and I no longer worry. Instead I get wrapped up in the moment and let my mind lead me from one shot to the next.

But I can't expect to produce top notch work each and every day (1) because I'm still a photo noob and (2) I won't always have the time. And that's a problem for me, being ok with the mediocre. However, I won't let it distract me from the true purpose of this project which is to learn and grow from my mistakes as well as my successes.

One thing I discovered this week that I see a bunch of other flickr peeps using is the "View on Black" option with their photos. It's nothing really profound, just a link to another website that displays your photo on a black background. It's great for some photos, but not all. So make sure and check out my photostream to see which of my photos you can view on black.

Project 365

Project 365 week 01 One of my more ambitious goals this year is taking part in Project 365. Where I will be taking one photo of myself each day for the entire year. If that sounds boring, I assure you it's not. I think of it as a daily creative exercise to help me (1) learn more about photography and (2) explore my thoughts and emotions and try to convey those in a photograph.

There's an old saying that goes; "A little effort goes a long way", and so each week I want to look back on the previous week and showcase a few of my personal favorites. I thought about posting each photo everyday here on my blog, but I thought that would get redundant since you can already see my flickr stream on the homepage. And if you're not already, follow me on flickr.
