Despite the fact I’ve been a photographer for a long time, this year is the first time I’ve done a 365 project. I never wanted to tackle this project before because it seemed hugely daunting. For those of you who don’t know what a 365 project is, it’s simply committing to taking one photo a day for a year. And yes, it IS daunting. But the good news is that after almost eight months, I have some helpful insight. Below is a list of some tips and warnings for a 365 project I’ve compiled. Hopefully these will help you out if you’re considering a 365 project (which I highly recommend)!
This project has been incredibly valuable to me. It has made photography part of my every day, not just something I do on vacation or for a client. Most importantly, I’ve discovered who I really am as an artist. As a result, it has helped me see what I like to shoot, how I like my images to look and what I want to say with my work. I once heard someone say, “If you’re struggling to clarify your voice as a photographer, and you tackle a 365 project, you will know what it is by the time the year is done.”
A 365 project is an exercise in discipline and practice. The result is not only a body of work that you’ll be proud of, but you’ll very likely have a stronger confidence in who you are as an artist.
