This was one of those mornings we have here in New England where a warm, humid day is followed by a cool night, resulting in patches of dense fog. There is something about fog that lends an air of mystery to the landscape, that just draws me into it. I just want to enter in and see what it’s hiding my sight.
Mystery In The Field
This project is winding down, with less than a month to go!! I’m excited about that fact! This has been a HUGE commitment, more than I could have ever imagined when I began 338 days ago. While I’m on track to meet my goal of taking a photo every day, other goals have been pushed aside to reach this one (most notably my goal to read 24 books this year, I might get to 16-18). However, I have learned A LOT and my skill has improved more so in the last year than the all the previous years combined! From my photography side of things, it has been worth it, but overall, taking into account the time I should have been studying, reading, doing house/yard work, etc, I’m not sure. And to be honest, I’m not sure it matters at this point.
I will not be doing another 365 project in 2013, but I will still be very active with my camera still! I will spend a lot more time learning and studying techniques, learning more about editing, and not feeling the pressure to come up with an idea at 10pm when I should be sleeping, just to say I shot that day. If you have a lot of time, or really want to improve your photography, I do recommend a 365 project. If you don’t have a lot of time, a 52 project (one a week) might be more fitting.
Now as this project approaches completion, I am looking for an idea for my last post of the year; something to top off a year of shooting some great images with style! I’m open for suggestions, but with the caveat that I do have to work the 31st. So fire away!
I’m also looking for ideas of what you would like to see in the next year. I will be posting my best images, at minimum. But I could start creating some tutorials on my favorite styles/techniques (both to help y’all out, and to make me learn them better!), and maybe do some gear reviews, of the stuff I have used (which is limited). I don’t see this as a profession, but maybe someday I can make some money to by new gear 😀
