Over the years, I always start the 365 project but I never seem to finish. It’s quite a difficult challenge to be honest – and if the goal is to take photos with my actual camera, that makes it harder.
I had a great run though I must say for 2019. So a little about the project – the daily photo challenge, also known as #project365. Each week, my photography partner and I choose a new theme, and each day we must take a photo within that theme. It’s a very hard challenge – but I love it for a few reasons. 1) It stretches you creatively. You don’t necessarily see new and interesting things or places each day, so you have to figure out how to capture the ordinary sometimes in new and creative ways. 2) It forces you to be observant to what’s around you. I literally now carry my camera everywhere. I keep my eyes open, and my brain thinking. It’s really cool the things you notice when you pay attention. 3) It lets me try new ideas, techniques, and editing styles – and ultimately I can apply these in my photography, design and marketing roles.
While I did not make it the full year, here are some of my favorite shots that I captured from the time I was succeeding.
