Are You a Project 365 Geek? My New 2011 Project
I have been completing a Project 365 every year for the last several years. I take a picture every day, but that is often where it stops. I would like to get the pictures into albums. One of my 2011 goals on my vision board is to complete a project 365 again, but I have more planned for the project next year.
What is Project 365?
Project 365 is a year long project where you commit to taking one picture every day. The picture can be of anything. It was started by Taylor McNight on January 1, 2004. I wonder if he knew what he was starting? Photojojo has an excellent post, written by Taylor, with tips and ideas for completing a Project 365.
Why a Project 365?
People participate for many reasons. A few are:
Photography Skills. By taking one picture every day, you can work on your photography skills. Experiment with different lighting, settings, time of day and subjects.
Everyday Life. When you capture one picture a day, you may need to get creative with your subjects. It’s a great opportunity to take pictures of your house, daily routines, meals, local hangouts and other things we engage with on a daily basis.
Scrapbooking Mojo. If you are a scrapbooker, you have probably had times where the mojo just isn’t there. Creating the Project 365 layouts puts the focus on the pictures and tend to be simpler pages. By creating regularly, it helps to keep the mojo going.
Project 365 Geek
I’m starting a new blog called Project 365 Geek. Not only will I post my pictures from each day, but it will be a resource for all of your Project 365 needs.
Some of what you will find:
- Links to Project 365 digital and paper scrapbooking kits
- Photography tips
- Weekly newsletter
- Daily Project 365 tips
- Project 365 tools
- Weekly topics for photo ideas
- Project 365 layouts and samples
- Much more…
On January 1, the blog will not be 100% complete. My hope was to have it ready, but being sick has gotten the best of me. I considered scrapping the whole idea, but I am really excited about this new site, so I’m going to make it a work in progress.
Bookmark the site and sign up for the newsletter. You don’t want to miss all the fun!
