January CY365 Photo Challenge List | 2014Posted by Katrina Kennedy on Dec 27, 2013 in 365, Blog, Idea List | 35 comments
Are you ready to start your 2014 365 Project? Here we go!
There are many reasons to complete a 365 project and many ways to go about it. There isn’t a right way or a wrong way, simply your way.
You can point your camera toward the everyday moments of your life or create a theme for your daily photos. You might only use your phone or stick to a dSLR. You could take a photo of the same thing everyday if you are up for EXTREME challenge.
Are you here to improve your photography? You will.
Are you here to document the beauty of your life? You will.
Are you here to slow down and notice the details? You will.
You will have days that are filled with inspiration and days when you struggle to create a photo. You will have days with amazing light and days where you struggle to take a photo in the diminishing light before the clock strikes midnight.
You may miss a day. Or two. And it will be okay.
There are no 365 police. No one will judge you or kick you out of the 365 club if you don’t do it perfectly.
At the end of the year you will have a collection of amazing photos of your life. A treasure of memories of YOUR LIFE as ONLY YOU can see it. AND THAT, is amazing.
Read more about the 365 process and how to be successful. You can also join me for a FREE Scrapinar with Lain Ehmann where I’ll share steps for creating a successful daily photography project. Register here.
I’m excited to see what you create this year and invite you to share it with the CY365 Community. You’ll find an amazing group of supportive, kind, and helpful people documenting their real lives, just like you!
