365 Project: Week 2Posted by in photography
2 weeks down, 50 weeks to go!
It’s still early days with this project, but in Week 2 I already experienced the busy day = late night photo part of the challenge and resorting to using my iPhone on one occasion too. I’m trying to be flexible and completely open to these less-than-perfect elements along the way, so it’s quite good to start incorporating that attitude early on in the project I guess.
As per last week, I’ve added a few extra comments here and there if I have something more to say about the photo or why/how I took it. I’m also going to start including my pick for which photo I’m most happiest with from each week, which is at the bottom of the post (I’ve also updated Week 1 to include this)
Here’s Monday 7th – Sunday 13th January 2013…
Experimented with black & white shooting in-camera this week, which I really enjoyed. I’m going to do a couple of b&w only weeks later on in the year to inject a bit more creativity and a different way of looking at things if I feel I need a boost.
In case you couldn’t tell, this was the photo I took at home once the day was nearly over. I framed it so it would sneak a tiny peek of a whole bunch of different things pinned to my board right now (yep, a real life one. not pinterest), including an Arcade Fire print, roll of washi tape, Annie Leibowitz picture, a handwritten note from my Mum, JFK postcard, an old photo of my family in New Zealand and an inspirational prompt on a card from the Ansel Adams exhibition. Love that I have a record of what’s on this board right now.
This is my phone photo from the week, taken on my iPhone 4 and processed in Afterglow on the train home.
Happiest with day 9 because of the way it looks like a double exposure. It probably wouldn’t have had quite the same effect if it wasn’t such a beautiful day :)

In 2013 I’m embarking on a 365 project adventure to improve my photography and document this awesome year, which means committing to take one photo a day, every day. You can start at any time of the year if you want to join in too.
