I got an iPhone this Christmas so I figured I would try a photo-a-day project for this year. You can view it on my facebook page. Most of the photos are taken with my phone. Some of the photo apps that I use are Best Camera, TiltShiftGen, CameraBag, and PS Mobile.
The main purpose of the project is to shoot more (um, every day, duh). A few of the photos were pre-set up, but the majority of them are just a random collection of things I happen to capture.
I’ve tried the self-portrait 365 before and failed miserably. But I think I can do it this time.
The most challenging part by far, and why I think everyone should try some kind of 365 project, is finding interesting photos in your mundane, day-to-day life. It’s easy to take photos when you’ve set something up or are at an interesting event, but taking interesting photos when there’s nothing special going on is hard.
The thing to remind yourself, especially when you’re feeling uninspired, is that not ever photo you take is going to be a winner. Of course, you strive every day to take a better photo than you did the day before, but sometimes I think the photos are actually secondary to the process of taking the photo.
So get out there and take a photo a day. If you’re doing one, send me an email or leave a comment with a link so I can check out how you’re doing.
