Blog #90 Restrictions, Revisited.
So photographer friends Mike & Kirill and I decided to start another one year project as if we have all the time in the world. We’re truly obsessed. Instead of a Project 365, this will be a Project 52. We shoot [constantly] and edit/post/comment once per week for a year. Images are posted on our Project 365 page on Facebook. If you are interested in being invited to this closed group page, message me and I’ll add you.
The interesting byproduct of the exercise was that we all decided to impose rules onto ourselves. I have written about restrictions in a previous blog and how there can be advantages to this [Blog #69].
Mike is doing an airport project, while Kirill is making self-portraits every week for a year. My self-imposed restrictions are to shoot people, in color, with an iPhone in square format. This runs counter to my usual 35mm black and white film sort of “default” photography mode.
We’re excited to be working on this project and I think that the themes should work well. What’s your project this year? Got resolutions? How about taking a class or workshop? Whatever you’re doing to improve your photography, do it well and do it often.
Good luck to you and good luck to us!
The light is always right.
