A couple years ago I decided to dive head first back into my photography and really push myself creatively, so I took on the 2012 Project 366 challenge, take a creative picture every day of the year. It was loads of fun and really made me look at things and the world around me from different perspectives, and it got my camera in my hands on a daily basis. It also had me looking for new techniques to use that I otherwise probably wouldn't have bothered with. Unfortunately, after a couple of months I found the daily challenge of the Project 366 to be very difficult to keep up with given my work and personal schedule, and I wasn't able to continue with it on a regular basis.
So last year I decided to try something new, the weekly challenge, 2013 Project 52, take a purposeful, creative picture at least once a week. It was a much more realistic venture given my schedule, and a huge success for me because I was able to complete the project!
Since last year was such a success for me I decided to continue the tradition and start up again this year with my personal photography challenge, 2014 Project 52. This year's project will comprise of images from a variety of things such as my daily life, objects I find interesting to photograph, favorites from photo sessions such as weddings, high school senior and family sessions, as well as high school show choir, musicals and plays just to name a few. I'm also participating in a 52 Week Challenge hosted by Indy Photo Coach and IMUPC (Indy Meetup Photography Club) which consists of weekly themes, so some of my 2014 Project 52 images will be those that I submit for that group as well.
I'm very excited to see what creative juices flow for me this year, and I invite you to follow along with me on my photographic journey through the year 2014. Check back here to see the latest images and you can also view my work on my Flickr site, and on my Facebook page.
Happy New Year!
