The 365 project has become part of my routine now, and I’ve even forgotten about it a time or two. The alarm I have set on my phone goes by unnoticed, and then it’s almost midnight and I am shooting something, anything.
I haven’t moved away from the iphone, in fact I have probably used it more. The best camera is the one you have with you, after all.
I’m starting to find some direction in my work that I want to pursue seriously for the at least the rest of the semester, and I am not sure yet how that will ed up fitting in the daily photo project, but I hope it will. The project is making me think of photography every single day, even when I don’t want to, don’t feel like seeing, don’t feel like editing, just Don’t Wanna.
I play lazy some days and use photos from a shoot I was doing for something else. I’ve a time or two posted an image I didn’t like or care for at all, just to have it done. I still have some catching up to do.
I guess it is going like a 365 project that has a person involved in it. I still don’t know how those people who put together amazing conceptual self-portrait 365 projects do it.
Maybe they shoot huge volumes on the weekend and edit and post through the week.
Goals for the coming month-ish? Still fewer stinkers. Less laziness. More color. Wrap the project into the body of work I am pursuing. Figure out how to best put lots of
images into a blog post without going completely bonkers because WordPress themes are design to squash doing anything differently at all.
Yep. The laziest, most awful thing I posted this month, just to get something up. There is no redeeming value to this image, but goddammit, something got posted. I’ve come to a decision about the profanity in my “professional” online life, by default. I curse. I won’t curse in an interview or around clients unless I know they’re okay with it, but I just will curse. Truth in advertising.
