Project 365 is the first photography project I have embarked on. I decided to take part in this project in December 2013 just a few months after making the decision to follow my childhood dream and go back to school to study photography. 

 

My goal for this project was to have my camera in my hands on a daily basis, shooting manually in order to train myself to be as familiar as possible with making the right choice for aperture and speed; as well as starting to train my eye on light and composition. 

 

*intentionally not all photos are posted...those are just for me. :)

Project 365: First Days

I am a passionate snapshot-taker looking to grow into a photographer.

 

I’m currently shooting with a Canon 550D, limited with editing possibilities only working with standard programs – no fancy stuff (yet).

 

I have been obsessed with photography since I can remember, but until this point haven’t funneled my interest into anything other than random pictures. Thanks to the support of my husband last year I have since take a few classes and have now decided to dig deeper, feed my obsession and get focused (no pun intended).

 

So now at the age of 31 my journey starts.

 

Through inspiration of a dear friend of mine, Madalena http://mypersonalcoffeebreak.com/, I have decided to take part in Project 365. This is my first blog, and first blog post. Bear with me in this new learning process.

 

I started on December 17, 2013 and for the next 365 days I will take a picture(s) every day.

 

I will start out with daily posts. However time will tell whether that is doable or if weekly posts will be more realistic.

 

Here are the first two days, first two pictures for my project.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas...

OK, slowly the few things I know are starting to come back. Plus apparently wearing my glasses does make a difference. 

 

Pretty sure this will be a major theme the next seven days.
