I think that it is a natural progression that leads either an amateur or professional to choose a project like this one. There are many reasons for starting one, usually a person does it as a way of challenging themselves, I'm doing it because I'm stuck in a rut. I actually don't have anything to photograph *shock!* I know, you love photography so you should see everything as a photograph. I do try to, but my surroundings have become something that I'm so used to that I can't see anything. That's why I'm doing this to try and progress further and observe how it's changed over the year. So with that said, here's day one! This actually came yesterday but I was really happy when I got it :). I'm going to use it in the next few days so I'm excited that this happened the day I decided to start this project.
I know this isn't the most amazing picture, but I'm not expecting masterpieces from this project. I'm not someone breaking the boundaries of photography, I'm average. However, I am hoping a few nice surprises and to develop my eyes to see photographs everywhere.
Putting that aside, I've decided to go back to aperture for a bit because I find that I worry too much about the technical aspects of photography even though it's meant to be an art form (as well as documentation) to express yourself. There are probably people reading this and thinking "it isn't even hard!". Yes, I understand where you're coming from, but everyone has their own pace and I'm sure I'll understand it eventually when I'm experimenting with settings.
Anyway, check back if you want to see how it's going or subscribe somewhere in the sidebar :D
