Project 365: Reboot

So… Lets go this going again :)

I'm inspired to start anew at the beginning 2013, 3 years after the failure of my last 365 project. Life kind of swept me away and I allowed myself to get really busy. While I never stopped talking photos after the 365 failure, the difference was that I was learning something nearly every day and pushing myself to go to new places. 

Time seemingly slows down for those 3 months in 2009 and in a busy and chaotic world, I feel that's important.

If I'm going to start again, I must realize what I did wrong and what my challenges were that I can overcome them again. I will state them here.

Goal: By Jan 1st 2014 I should have 365 photos, one for every day of the year. For the days I went somewhere or did something unique the photos should reflect this. For the days –most days– where I go from home to work to home again, a new strategy will be necessary to avoid filler and burning myself out.

Here is my strategy:

1- Simplify. Don't overcomplicate things.
2- I have 2 cats now. Don't fill it up with cats. I fear this time around I will have a 365 photos of cats.
3- I will not lock myself down to thought-out, artsy, well-exposed, or otherwise great looking photos from an SLR. But I must also resist always going to the phone for a quick filler pic. 
4- Experiment. Be scientific about things. Shoot something 90 different ways and with different lenses. Learn and re-learn my equipment.
5- Try something new. Collect photos and ideas from other sources and keep notes.
6- Simplify. Don't take it too seriously. Fill it up with cats if I have to… ;)

Wish me luck.

  1. This is usually performed for manufacturing intricate elements in the aerospace, car, trendy electronics industries, and so on. In order coloring books to achieve precision in CNC machining, together with advanced technologies and expert workmanship, the choice of right materials is essential. Generally, the material for precision CNC machining requires properties like dimensional stability, machinability, and workability, corrosion resistance, and impression resistance, and so on.
