Today I completed my first 365 photo project – natural world. One photograph, taken each day for a full year, with a natural world theme or connection. The commentary became too predictable to post weekly, and I dropped it off after a couple of months so as not to bore everyone. However, the process of seeing and finding images in the every-day proved to be interesting and challenging throughout the project.
The lessons were often the same week to week, there wasn’t the need for ‘big scenes’ in order to find an interesting image. Some of the images I found interesting related specifically to the theme and seeing how I could develop that out, especially living and working in basically an urban environment. It made me look for the little touches of nature, or see the irony of where nature didn’t really exsit in its natural form. Interesting stuff.
I hope to pick out a few of my favourite images and feature them on the blog and also investigate what printed form my collection could now take. Most the images were shot on an IPhone so their quality is not as high, but they should still print up in small format somehow.
All 365 images can be found here on my Flickr account.
Not one to quit while I am ahead, I have now decided to do a second project, which I will start tomorrow, 365 Photo Project – Travel Edition!!
I am excited to keep going, and develop the concept of taking an image daily a little bit further and extend it into the next phase of my adventures in life.
This project will be more of a documentary style, and will take you on the journey over the next year as I move location, travel and explore the world. I have a few destinations planned already, and others, well I am sure they will pop-up along the next 12 months.
This year I will be aiming to put travel at the heart of my adventures, and I hope to capture that with the images and the project.
So, if I didn’t lose you on the first round, then stay tuned for the second 🙂
