Tips for Project 365

Pool of Ice
A photo I took on Feb 10 - because I'm a firm believer that all blog posts need a photo!

Jessica Turner's blog post on this prompted me to share some tips for Project 365, or any similar type of project.

  • First off - Don't sweat it if you miss a day or two, or even a week - It's OK to have a gap. Just start again. But don't give up! It's OK to re-evaluate your project and tweak it so that it works for you.
  • Don't sweat it if the picture isn't perfect. Some of my most loved pictures certainly won't win any awards, but they are precious to me and represent a piece of my day. Because that's what I want to achieve with my P365 - a capture of my life.
  • Yes, carry that camera around EVERYWHERE. I take my DSLR practically everywhere! People around me don't even notice. I once pulled out my camera during a Book Club Meeting (we were at a restaurant) and my friend said "Where did that camera come from? Did you carry that thing in here?". Invariably, if I don't have my big camera, I will spot something that I want to take a picture of.
  • And when that happens, I use my iPhone's camera. Again, my goals for this project is to capture a bit of my every day life. Some of my iPhone pictures are pretty darn good!
  • Keep up with the downloading / editing. If you get behind, then don't edit - just use them SOOC. Try to print out the photos on a regular basis (this is something I am way behind on).
Hopefully, you can use these tips and keep trucking on those pictures! I'd love to hear additional tips in the comments section.
