What is a 365 Project & why embark on one?!

A 365 project is pretty much taking a photo a day, for an entire year.

I completed my first 365 Project in 2015, and although at times it was a lot of pressure, the joy I get from looking back at an entire year in my life is worth all the pain! I attempted it in 2016, but when my camera went back to the supplier to be fixed, I lost the ‘bug’! It’s a bit like going to the gym really. Sometimes you love it, and the more you go, the more you need to go. But have a day off and it’s not so easy to get back into it!

I have tried again every year, but something always stopped me completing it, but NOT this year dag nammit!

From a photographers point of view, picking up your camera every single day, is a brilliant way to learn new skills and push the boundaries of your current abilities. My ‘mentor’ (and hero if I’m honest!) Julie Christie, said that the best way to learn is to practice, practice, practice….you’ll never get better by looking at your camera, or reading books, you need to learn by ‘doing’. And so I did. Every day for a year, and by the end of that year, my photo’s were strikingly different.

So here I go again in 2022…..you can see how it’s all going (plus explanations of the random photos!) over on Instagram or my Facebook Page
