I have had a few people ask me about projects they can set themselves to give them something to think about with their photography.
So here are a few ideas depending on what you are looking for and what may fit in with your lifestyle the best.
"Through the Seasons" can be a great idea for a project. All you need to do is find a local spot that appeals to you - a nice landscape that has trees or riverside etc that you know will show plenty of changes through the year and every month set yourself a day - say the first Saturday in every month - or whatever day suits you, to go back to the same spot and from the same spot get a shot of the location throughout the year, from frosty mornings to summer evenings and every weather change in between. This can make a great project.
Another great exercise can be to get a prime lens - say a 50mm lens - most people have one, and take a photo each day for a month with the 50mm lens, using prime lenses forces us to be more creative when taking the photo as you can't zoom etc. thus making you move around more than you probably do when you use a zoom lens. You will end up with 30 great photos that you have captured during the month and a mind full of creativity to take you into your next project.
You can pick whatever kind of project works for you - a day in the life of your dog, or you could spend the month photographing numbers in our every day life , maybe you could spend the moth photographing shadows or skylines, or textures, there is a whole world out there for you to photograph.
If you are interested in learning more about your camera or coming along on one of my workshops click on the tab above and see where we are on different days over the next few months.
