For those of you that don't know, the idea behind Project 365 is to take a new picture (or 2, or 3, or 4, or....) every day, with the goal of improving your photographic skill and technique. Over the course of a year, I've taken literally thousands of pictures (gotta love digital cameras!) . I've gotten some OK shots, some really nice ones, and some that never made it off of the camera. I got a new camera, broke the new camera, moved back to the old camera, and moved back after getting the new one repaired. Some of the shots I found easily, and some were desperation shots taken just before (or in some cases shortly after) midnight. During the last few months, I started really obsessing about getting a picture every day and my wife suggested, rightly so, that I should just quit. However, I really wanted to see this through, so I just kept at it.
So, did I get a new picture every day? No, but I did take one to be used on the days I missed. Did this project make me a better photographer? Maybe yes, maybe no. I did learn how to use some of the features of my cameras that allowed me to take pictures I would not have otherwise been able to take, so that's something gained. Would I do this again, or something like it, in the future? No, I have too many other things to do. That being said, I don't have any regrets about the project and wouldn't caution others against it. I would just suggest that they go in with their eyes open and that they not get obsessive about it. It's all just a bunch of bits anyway.
