Yup, I’ve wanted to do this for a couple of years now and have just bitten the bullet and joined this group (registration closes tomorrow since it has to start on 1/1/09!). I’d love to know if anyone else is doing this? There are lots of groups out there so I highly encourage finding one and spending this year honing your photography skills (man do I need this, lol) and documenting your year in the everyday extraordinary! For those who are unfamiliar with Project 365, the concept is simple. Take one picture per day (of course, you can take more, but at LEAST one). It can be of anything or anyone that means something to you. When the year is up, you should have a snapshot view of your interests, yourself, etc., rather than just the usual “here are the Christmas pics, here are the birthday pics…”. I personally take a lot of people pics (lol, and project pics, of course) so I want to push myself to make this project about the things that surround me rather than the people (who I’ll already photograph). I’m hoping to start taking more interesting pictures through this journey, as well as a visual reminder of the bits and pieces of my life.
Whether you join the group I’m in or another, I hope you’ll take this photographic journey yourself!
