Yeah, I did it in 2009 and finished mine up yesterday.
Edit: I've migrated it from PixelPost over to my regular blog. I'm still having some issues, but here's the updated link.

It's a lot of work. Some days it was about trying out a new post processing method. Other days it was about a challenging subject. In the end, it tells a story of one year. Some shots were forced and I really wasn't happy with, while others turned out better than I had thought. I was also able to market it a little bit and got in with a couple of galleries that now regularly invite me to show and sell work there.

Good luck!

Really the thing to making a Project 365 successful is having LOTS of people follow you. I had a few follow on that website, but most followed on Facebook since I also posted the photos in a couple of albums there. The more followers you have to keep you accountable, the more likely you'll be able to finish it successfully.

I need to do one of these instead of being on the internet for hours a day while my camera sits on the desk collecting dust. :-|

I started lst year on June 1 so today will be day 216. I have a set on flickr for my daily pics, and upload them to project 365 group there. My goal is to take the pic - I upload them to flickr avery 2 or 3 days (depending on how many pics I've taken.) I've also turned my blog into my project, and since the project started the only things I've put on there are my project pics.

I certainly don't get a great shot every day - some shots are just family snapshots. But I've gotten some beautiful photos as a result of *thinking* about shooting every day. And I think that's the point.

Here is my blog if you want to take a look: www.karmaisaboomerang.​blogspot.com (external link)

Like the idea behind it, but won't be doing it...long for the days to not pick up a camera at times!

Here's a twist, 365 days in the life of someone else, every day picking a different person. 365 people, 365 jobs or what they do. Now that'd be a project!

I've been doing a photo a day of my kids since the day they were born. My daughter (external link) is up to day 1016 and my son (external link) is at day 186. I've never missed a day and have always posted the photos the same day they were taken. I love it, and my kids love having their photo taken.

For anyone who does it, take the time to make a photo book out of the photos. Getting a 365+ page book of your work is so cool (granted it's like $80/book, but still worth it).

BTW, I plan on continuing until it's no longer fun for them (yes, I'll continue it forever if I can). :)

I actually started this a couple days ago as well :) I am hoping that I can stick to it, I posted a link from my facebook page hoping that my friends will keep me going, so we shall see!

Also was thinking at the end it would be great to do a photobook of it, so I am glad to hear that others have enjoyed doing that and that its worth the money.

I also started a 365 project this year. So far I'm two for two. I hope I can make 365 shots. I'll probably need to start writing down ideas as they come to me, because I think in about a week I will have run out.

I've done this for the past 4 years, though the last few months of 2009 were just too busy for me to be able to keep up with it. I don't maintain any strict rules on when I can upload the photo for the day, and if I miss a day here or there I don't worry too much about it. It's my project so I'm allowed to bend the rules and have fun. :)

Good luck with yours!

I'm giving it a whirl, and going to try to not use any racing related photos for this project. That may make some days a bit tough, but I can see myself trying some things out of the norm for me.

I can also see my facebook friends dropping me like a hot potato as this goes on...LOL

But I am sure the one thing it almost has to do for certain is improve your way of seeing things


Your camera is alot smarter than the "M" Zealots would have you believe
