10 Ideas for A Photo of the Day ProjectPosted by Katrina Kennedy on Dec 29, 2010 in 365, Blog, Photography | 7 comments
Are you thinking about starting a photo a day project or continuing from last year? I started my photo a day project on February 28, 2008. It started as a 30 day challenge with the button photo.
Here are the things that have helped me most along the way.
1. Keep it real and simple and don’t be afraid to capture the ordinary and the simple. Photograph life as it happens, naturally and spontaneously. Those are the memories I will treasure most. Sometimes it is not about a perfect photo, just a moment of life.
3. Collect and review your photos. Looking through my photos, reading the stories I’ve written about them and seeing them together is great inspiration to keep the project going!
4. Scrapbooking your photos? Keep it super simple. It is a BIG project. I’ll post more on that tomorrow!
5. Hang in through January and February, they are the hardest months to photograph. Low light. Mostly indoors. They can be tough. Only let your mood get in the way a little.
6. Look in unexpected places for you photo of the day. Look up, down, around, behind. Shoot the same thing on different days with a different point of view.
10. Enjoy the process. You are documenting your life. THAT is the most important thing.
