Photo Tip: A 365 Project With A Theme

The video above was highlighted recently by Digital Photography School whose RSS feed is part of my daily Google Reader Fix. It got me thinking though, we often say shoot with a theme or pursue personal projects to keep you own creative juices flowing, perhaps combining the two can take this concept even further.

I have also recently read an article that argued that shooting more does not mean you will improve. I hear and understand much of the argument in that article and am not an advocate of mindless shooting, but I believe it was Gary Player that said the More he practiced the luckier he got and the same applies to photography. Practice and experiment with new things and if you don’t know what to shoot give yourself an assignment.

I must admit, I am a bit of a procrastinator and have been thinking of doing a 365 project to take and post a picture a day. Are there any readers our their willing to do this with me?

    Alright Tristan… how about kicking the procrastinator part in you to the kerb and accept a challenge? Set a specific date, create a 365 folder on your computer and start shooting. In the words of Clint Eastwood…”Go ahead, make my day.”
