#100DayProject: Photography-Week One

“I feel confident imposing change on myself. It’s a lot more fun progressing than looking back. That’s why I need to throw curve balls.” —David Bowie

In an effort to keep growing and learning, I’m participating in the #100DayProject by taking photographs daily with my Olympus OM-D. I’ll edit and post my favorite photos from the week each Monday. I’m new to photography and would greatly appreciate any feedback or advice.

If you’re unfamiliar with the 100 Day Project, the concept is simple. You choose any creative project you like and do it every day for 100 days, sharing your process on social media using the hashtag #The100DayProject. This year the dates are Feb. 13-May 24.

If you are participating this year, let me know where I can follow you. I find these types of challenges (NaNoWriMo/Artist’s Way/52 Week Writing Challenge) help me balance my chaotic creative energy into a more disciplined practice.

Here’s my first batch of photos:

  1. A good and varied series – how great you are photographing every day. The first 10000 photos are the worst, they say – you must have passed that! Keep photographing, they already look great, and the more you photograph and look at other peoples work, the more you will learn. You have a great camera as well. I use Lightroom and Photoshop, but there are free software like Gimp that are great too. Good luck with your photos!
    I read a couple of your posts and you really have a way with words. If I understood it right, you are a writer too? Keep up the good work!

      • Believe it or not, I actually have that camera too — although I typically take pics from my phone because it is always on me. (I’m not even sure they make those cameras any more.) But Olympus does take really good pics.

        Good luck with your 100-day challenge. (I am not nearly disciplined enough to work on something every day.)

      • Thank you! The camera is a bit heavy and cumbersome for everyday use. However, it was a gift from my father and I’m so grateful for the chance to play around with it. I appreciate your kind words!

  2. **I find these types of challenges help me balance my chaotic creative energy into a more disciplined practice.** I’ve never participated in such challenges but what you said here seems like exactly what I need.. I have such an overwhelming creative energy and since I’m not consistent in releasing it in outlets frequently I often feel restless and unsatisfied with myself. I am late to this challenge I guess since it started mid February but I think I can make my own challenge period 😅. Thank you for this post. I will be glad to checking your beautiful photos.
