30 Day Project #1

I recently completed a project to make photographs every day for 30 days in a row. I could use a cell phone camera or a simple point & shoot model. And I could make multiple pictures a day but only choose one of them. It was all about practicing seeing and photography every day, even if just for a few minutes.

Because the camera in my smart phone makes low quality images, I made nearly all of my photos with my compact digital camera set to Program mode. I allowed myself to adjust ISO (Auto or Hi), White Balance and Exposure Compensation because those controls were available on my phone, but that was it. I did allow myself to crop and adjust exposure and color as needed before sharing them (because I'm compulsive that way).

So for the next month, you'll see the pictures I made in between regular life and traveling to the Oregon coast. I highly recommend such a project! It has developed my "reflex" of seeing pictures all the time.
