365 Photography Project

Recently I was introduced to doing a 365 photo blog. This came up when I started following Karin's 2011 Project. Over the past couple weeks I've been not so sure about whether I want to do it or not.

I didn't really want to do it at first because,

  • I'm not that great at photography
  • I don't know if I can make myself take a picture a day for the rest of the year
  • I don't know much about photography (the lingo, and my camera).
  • I felt weird?
I've finally decided to do it because, 

  • I will be able to improve my photography skills
  • I will have a hobby
  • I will learn a lot about photography
  • I will hopefully become better at photography
  • It will create a new skill (hopefully). 
  • I enjoy taking pictures
So, after I finish my "Ecuador Project" I will continue posting hopefully everyday (or a picture for everyday). This project will be intertwined with my personal life as well, because I don't really want to make a new blog for my project. 

I guess we'll see if my photography has improved at all on December 31, 2011.  :)

I'm so happy! I've loved keeping up with your journey while you've been in Ecuador, and I've honestly been sad along with you that your time there is coming to and end:(

If you're overwhelmed, not at the thought of taking a picture a day but of POSTING a picture a day, I've come across a few people who post all of their pictures for the week once a week. You could even do this in a collage, like the woman here:

I'm very happy, Christina, and look forward to learning new skills with you:)
