Well we all have a face, that we hide away for ever. And we take 'em out and show ourselves, when every one has gone...

Day Ten...I really have to start planning and setting up my shots if I'm going to get true practice...how do you guys do it? Do you plan out each shot or just get what you can (at least once in awhile)?

That's an excellent question Alikat. I actually have a list hundreds of items long, of ideas I have for my 365 project.

Mind you, I came into this via Flickr, and the classic Flickr 365 group calls for "Self" portrait, every day for a year. And it's tough. It's really tough.

It USED to be tough coming up with ideas. BUT now that I've been doing it a while, I've kinda got an eye for "seeing" ideas, and as I've seen more and more ideas, I have been adding to my list and like I said, it's HUNDREDS of items long now (400 or so).

NOW the tough part for me is the actual DOING it! LOL!! Some days after a long day of work I really don't feel like it, but I've been keeping it up. I'm really looking forward to getting through this and printing a hardcover book after the entire year is through.

As I'm sure you've noticed, Post Processing is a big part of what I do with mine. I think what's cool about this 365 project, is that you really do learn about yourself, and what YOU like to do. I think it's important to do YOUR own thing, and follow your own inspiration.

Oh - and have fun!

^Chairman, that picture has an eerie resemblance to Liam Neeson from Batman Begins, very cool.

Good catch there Bryce. How did you notice that?

Did you happen to have that photo nearby or something?

I like this! Its true, I keep thinking that even though it feels rushed and haphazard right now, that I too will start 'seeing' what I want to shoot each day. I find I'm drowning a bit in where to start as I learn more about flashes and off camera flashes (awaiting my triggers) and lighting and exposure and shooting more manual and and and...let alone the PP! Yikes! I'm trying to shoot different things to see what I DO enjoy shooting, I've always loved shooting kids and people in "moments"...love those captures...obviously I love sports as many of my photos are from my daughter's soccer, my own softball, and junior hockey games we have season tickets for, but finding out what I love and what I'm good at I think is going to be my "self challenge" for this project. I WANT to make a lightbox and try shooting "stuff", I want to try a bit of glamour and such. I have a friend that wants me to practice on bodybuilding bodyscapes eventually, friends with engagements, babies, weddings, etc. THANK YOU!

Chairman - I love that shot! Great lighting.

On my shots I take my camera with me everyday to work, as i'm out teh office most days then I take the camera with me, then if I have a quite few minutes take a few shots. Sometimes obviously I just have no time/forget/can't be bothered, so wait till i'm home and take a rubbish shot. I will get a shot everyday, even if one day it is literally a shot of a blank wall...

You can buy a soft box from cowboystudio.com for under $100. You can also build your own ring flash. If you youtube DIY ringflash you will find instructions.

I'm taking a "beginner professional photography" course on the 10/11th of April with studio lighting and models provided so I think that will help a lot too...help me FOCUS anyways (no pun intended, lol)
