Photo Project 365

This is a photo blog focused on but not limited to study of composition and tonal relations in photographs.

It is a continuation my Project 365 from 2010 a moderately successful attempt to make and publish one photography each day for one year.

The Project lost it's steam somewhere half along the way and this place became a depository of my more satisfying photos.

Photo Project 365


Welcome to the blog for my every-day-a-photo project for 2010. Known across the web as Project365 this is an attempt to improve one's photography skill by making a photo (or photos) each and every day for a year.

This is for me both a way of motivating myself to take the camera and think about opportunities as well as a chance to start another blog and keep it going after previous have been sadly neglected.

The big day of first photo in the project comes this Monday. Besides being the first day of the Christmas week this will be the winter solstice. In Northern Hemisphere December 21st is the day which has the least light and isn't light and from this day on there will be more and more sunlight until the mid June and than back to the darkness in next winter solstice.

So December 21st is better than January 1st for beginning the project because:
1. Isn't light what photography is all about? So starting from the darkest day and going all the way around the year seems inspiring.
2. It leaves an open slot for the actual New Year's resolution.
3. It comes around sooner.

Good enough for me.

And as the name suggests my photos mainly deal with light and shadow: the contrasts, the grays in between and black and white photos. I also prefer working with the natural light than with the strobes as it is easier for me to become charmed by the great quality of natural arrangement of things than to imagine a scene and recreate it with artificial means.

Planning ahead for 365 days is way beyond my managerial ambitions so of course the scope of my photos can change somewhere during the project. I'll let you know if I notice that. Let me know if I don't notice!

Until Monday!
