One of the best times I have ever had blogging was when I participated in Tristan’s Souvenir Foto School, Alphabet Edition. (That link is to my collection of images and posts that came from the project.) The assignment was to take an image a day that represented a letter in the alphabet, but I decided it would be fun to write a short story or journal entry with each picture and post it here on the blog. After 26 days I was exhausted, but I think I was being a major wimp. A year later I did Nester’s 31 Day series. That’s exhaustion.
I’m doing the project again this year. We’ll see how and where I post the images. I’m still deep in my multi-step decision making process and will know more once the ink dries on all my decision matrices. If you want to join me, you can learn more about the project, including price, here. Full disclosure: I’m not paying the fee for the class. I’m helping Tristan with the Besotted Brand look-book, so we decided to call it even.
Last year, my only goal was to complete the project. This year, I want a collection of images that are consistent in tone, mood, and subject matter. I want to have a look! It’s on my life list to improve my photography skills and become adept at using my camera. Participating in projects like this will help me to that end. I hope.
