7 good reasons to undertake Project 365

Enjoying my Project 365 - maybe not complete it in 365 days as sometimes life gets in the way, but certainly hope to complete 365 images in as close to a year as possible. 

7 good reasons to undertake Project 365

Project 365 encourages you to:

  • focus on what's important and to consider whether you just want people to "like" your photographs or whether you want to "make" good photographs - neither of which are necessarily the same!
  • slow down and develop patience by taking the time to observe and soak in the details re: the world around you. 
  • become more creative in the images you produce.
  • look for beauty in the mundane!  Seriously, you will begin to 'notice' beauty in lots of unexpected places once you start looking! 
  • develop perseverance. Sounds easy shooting one image per day, but it's totally different when you actually try it!  You will need to learn to draw on all the motivation you can muster some days.... and imagination!
  • increase your knowledge re: lighting, composition, subject, different photography genres as well as equipment, etc.
  • enjoy a real sense of personal achievement and satisfaction both during and after such an undertaking.

Fab idea if you're a photographer or even if you like to take photos on an iphone.
