So I’ve gotten a bunch of emails about Project 365, so I thought I’d elaborate today…
As much as I would like to take credit for this ingenious idea…there are a bunch of Flickr groups dedicated to photographers on the 365 journey…I’m a part of this one. I’m not sure who originally started this particular take on the idea…so unfortunately I can’t give due credit.
Here are the rules:
1) You must be the one to compose, edit, and physically press the shutter button (timers, tripods and remotes are legit).
2) The photo has to be taken on the “day”, no taking a series of three pictures and loading them up separately…how would they know?…cameras have EXIF data that permanently stamps the date into the electronic file…and the moderators of the group do random checks if something is looking funky.
3) You have to be in the picture (duh, self-portrait!)…there are alot of lame pictures in the group…and by lame I mean one finger in the shot, etc. I mean seriously a photo of a beautiful sunset with one finger sticking into the frame, c’mon people!
Pretty simple! But pretty challenging once you put it all together. I personally think they should have a separate group for people with two-year olds. We definitely have it a little harder.
Anyhoo…I’ve already taken a shot that I really don’t like…and now it’s stuck forever in the set, but oh well…this is supposed to be about learning. At least I made up for it today…what do you think?
