Plans for the blog…day 6

I just knew that I would not post my 365 pictures daily. I still hope to post most days, but there will be gaps. But I can say that I have taken a picture every day for the last week! Only 358 pictures left, but this is a leap year so 359 left. What was I thinking? Starting a 365 in a leap year! I must have been crazy to think I could do that.

Okay, deep breaths taken. All better now. Thanks.

As I said in my post last Sunday about the 365 some of the posts would be pretty quick hits with a picture and others would be longer posts has I had been doing three times  a week before the new year. I enjoy writing the longer posts so I want to make sure I get back to doing that. So in order to keep me honest I thought I would blog about some of my blog ideas. (Is that cheating?)

Here are some ideas of where I want to take this blog and what type of content I want to post:

  • Put myself out there more – that has been something I have been working on and continue to work on.
  • Teaching – I’m learning this as I go, sometimes making stuff in regards to the shoots I am doing. But I want to share what I have learned as I really enjoy talking about photography and teaching others.
  • Find my style – even after making photographs for over a year now I still have no idea what I really like to shot, or want to focus on. Maybe I don’t need to focus on anything and just have fun. But that will come about by shooting and thinking about my photos.

How am I going to do the above items?

  • Posting my self-evaluations – When I do even a mini project I try to sit down and think about what went right and wrong.
  • Self-disclosure – when I write posts I am sharing part of who I am, this helps people get to know me and helps them understand my photography
  • Technical posts – posts about the basics of photography. I originally learned from others videos and posts. I want to help others
  • Inspiration – where I find inspiration
  • Spotlights – there are so many wonderful photographers out there that inspire me, teach me, that give back to the world I want to make sure others know of them as well. I am hoping to do a few interviews this year with photographers and post them here.
  • Gear – talk about the gear I am using, how I use it, gear envy, and what makes making photographs easier

Enough of my rambling, time for today’s picture. Not the sharpest but I think it is fun. The picture is of a metal figure that has a very art deco feel to it. I thought about converting to black and white due to the higher ISO I used but I like the colors to much.

  1. Best of luck with the project!! I’m nearly at day 200 and some days and definitely less inspiring than others!! You’ve just reminded me that I have to get past that 29th day of Feb too….dang! p.s. I like this photo…sharpness is overrated sometimes….well, Henri Cartier Bresson thought so and he’s awesome 😉
