At some stage today I came up with the idea to embark on my own 365-day photographic project in 2011 – project365. While not exactly an original concept, a project of this type – one photograph posted each day over the next calendar year, is something that I have definitely not attempted before and I’m really excited about the possibilities that lay ahead.
From a personal perspective, I hope to improve, through this project, a number of areas of my own photographic skills including more quality images from less shots, improved portraits and also just applying the sort of discipline required to keep up with this kind of project.
Where can you view the shots?
Of course, I’m going to share the daily shots with you all in a couple of different ways:
If you’re a regular visitor to my site, this is perhaps the easiest place to check on a daily basis. Just click on the project365 menu item at the top of the page and you can scroll through all the shots that have been posted since January 1.
Bookmark the page and it will be even easier to find each day!
I have created a project365 set on my Flickr account which is where I will be posting the daily shots. If you’d like to leave a comment on any of the pics, this will be the place to do it.
You can also subscribe to the RSS feed for this set. Add the feed to your feed reader and you’ll have the photo releases as they happen!
The Flickr feed mentioned above is automatically pulled into my tumblr blog “Masey’s Minor Musings”. In amongst all the random videos, images, quotes and other bits and pieces I post each day, each project365 image will apear. Cool!
This last gem is actually something I literally stumbled across while writing this post. The lovely Lisa Bettany (MostlyLisa) and “tap tap tap”, the makers of the awesome iPhone camera app “Camera+” have come up with a new website where you can share your daily photos with the world with one tweet. All I do is add the hashtag #mostly365 to my daily tweets when a new project365 shot is published and it pops up in the gallery for the given day on the mostly365.com site.
Check the site out for yourself when you get some spare time and check out all of the photos that people are taking as part of their own 365 photography projects.
