Itâ€™s now day 77 of Project 365 -2011. This is the first time Iâ€™ve done this, and am, for the most part enjoying it. I am getting to the point where life is getting too busy for me to process all my photos each night, and the backlog is building. Still Iâ€™m managing to post to Flickr every few days, so Iâ€™m not falling too far behind.
â€œWhatâ€™s Project 365?â€ you ask? Itâ€™s a commitment to take one photo a day, for an entire year. Iâ€™ve read about people who get bored/distracted/give up at various points in the year, but Iâ€™m quite determined to see it through. Though, as I write this, Iâ€™m already getting tired.
On the upside, with warmer weather coming, Iâ€™ll have so many subjects to photograph, and wonâ€™t be stuck with whatâ€™s around the house. Iâ€™m looking forward to trying to set up lots of different shots with the girl. So far, Iâ€™ve done great with her hands and dirt.
Thatâ€™s a running theme with her anyway (her love of dirt does NOT come from my side of the family).
Next week, Iâ€™ll be starting a new photography class â€“ Your Life: Captured Through the Lens, and is taught by the talented Katrina Kennedy. She also taught the class I won from CK and took in December. But, back then, I was still using my Sony DSC-H9. Now, Iâ€™m using a Canon Rebel XS (a REAL camera) and a Tamron 18-270mm lens. THIS will be a fun class. I can tell. And, I even paid for this one!
Now, if I can just manage to find time to process all the photos Iâ€™ll take in classâ€¦..
