Thinking of doing a 365 :)

I have been thinking of doing a 365. I think it would be really neat to just take a picture every day. Maybe not a portrait every day ya know? But just a picture of something. My life is not very interesting right now but I think I need some sort of challenge right now. I have been following Gwen's 365 on flickr for awhile now. Smile I love all your photos by the way Gwen! You've done great! But like I said, my life is not all that interesting but maybe I will find even just the littlest thing can be interesting? hmm Thoughts? Smile

Think I can start...yesterday? lol

I think it's a great idea! I've been thinking about doing a 'project 52' with at least a photo a week for me. Right now, I seem to go in spurts. And I'll do 100 photos in one week and then leave the camera off for a month.

Have fun w/ it!!!

Best,
GiGi

I'm the same way as GiGi, there is no way I could do a 365, but a 52 sounds great! I think you can do it! GL and I hope you will keep us posted on it!

yeah i was thinking of a 52 as well. I'm so bad at committing myself to just one thing. But that's where the challenge is. Maybe I can take a photo of my housework each day Lol I don't know. It will be nice to just have something to do I think. Smile photography wise anyway.

Well I've started the 365 project! It will mostly be on my flickr. Warning, my life is not that interesting but I will try my best to take a photo of something each day. lol That will be challenging. I've posted two so far. And need to post todays pic. Smile

I was also thinking of how nice it will be to document my life here in Norway since I only have a few months left here. Then we move!

I think its a great idea. Personally, I could never do it because I can hardly keep my house clean. I would love to see yours though!!

my house is never ever clean! Lol well it's clean to a point but for stuff like this I neglect a lot of the cleaning. haha I do a big cleaning on one day during the week then little stuff in between like dishes and laundry Blum 3 i hate cleaning! i'd rather be editing. hehe

It's so funny you mention this, Loida, because I've been considering a 365 as well. I think it's just what I need to motivate me to take out my camera every single day. And, that's the only way I'm going to get better, right? With lots of practice! So, I think I'm going to do one too. I'm a total nerd, though, and can't stand to start on an odd day. I'm looking to start on October 1. Good luck with yours!

I think a lot of people like starting points Smile but i'm one to just jump on in and do it! Lol i hate waiting. hehe And good luck with yours too! Will you be posting it on flickr? I'm having so much fun so far! And this will definitely help improve your photography skills. Well that's what I read anyway. It will just be nice looking back at a years worth of pictures.

I'm with you Krista- I think a 365 is just what I'd need to motivate me into picking up my camera every day. How do you do it? Do you just upload to your Flickr?
Thanks for bringing this up!!

I'll do a Project 52 next year, the 365 stresses me out sometimes. Sad But I can't wait to stalk yours Loida!

I can't wait to be stalked Lol i know there will be times I will be out of ideas but i'll cross that bridge when i get to it. I know most of my shots aren't going to be very interesting but I'll try my best! I don't get out much Lol

Ana, yes I just upload to flickr Smile I put it in a set called Project 365 under my Loida G. Photography collection. Probably only viewable to friends and family. I usually don't like posting pics of my family publicly. There are so many weirdos out there!

Ditto this! I am on day 267 (haven't taken todays shot yet) and am glad that I have less than 100 days to go. Don't get me wrong, it has taught me so much and I have had some fun experimenting, but I am ready for the end to be in sight. I am really looking forward to a 52 week project next year though, lol!
