Project 365 – First Picture vs. Last Picture

During Project 365, a photographer commits him or herself to take a picture each day for an entire year. The project is a great way to focus on improving your photography skills. It may be hard to keep it up and find something interesting in your daily life, but if you stick with it, it is certainly worthwhile. The eleven projects from flickr below show that each person approaches project 365 in a different way. Some people have a specific focus (colors, clones or self-portraits), while others take pictures of whatever they happen to come across. Many photographers get a lot better when you compare their first and last pictures; a few peak at the start and keep it up to the end (I’m looking at you, JD Hancock!).

No argument from me. If you do anything 365 times, you’re bound to get a little better at it, if only accidentally. 😉

I’m 8 days into my first 365 on flickr. Glad to know that I might get better by the end. These examples are very interesting.

I think I am going to attempt another 365 project, what have I got to lose right… Just have to wait for pending surgery to be over.
