Project 365: Day 1 :: “With a Fast Shutter Speed”

I spent all of January thinking about doing a 365 Project or bypassing it.  Obviously, I changed my mind because here I am with my first post.  It was just too monotonous all month with no motivation to take my camera anywhere with me.  I want to change that!  With the start of my photography class, I’ve decided that I need to be more proactive and actually have my camera on me instead of only taking mental snapshots.  Guess what I realized?  I can’t look at those snapshots when I want to!  SO here I am 🙂  I couldn’t think of a theme, and in my searching, I found Capture Your 365.  There is an idea every day, one month at a time.  AWESOME!  Great for someone like me who can’t FOCUS on one thing.  I want to do it all.  Therefore, on top of my Project 12 with MCP, I will be doing a daily project.  Here’s my first picture!  The topic is “With a Fast Shutter Speed.”  My shutter speed was 1/320 of a second.  And my subjects are my most favorite young ladies 🙂  from Koza’s Youth Group, Transformed.

MCP Project 12: Resolution

This year I am going to do something different…I’m going to follow through with a photo challenge.  And I found the perfect one!  MCP Project 12 (http://www.mcpactions.com/blog/2012/01/01/mcp-project-12) fits in so well with my personality and time schedule.  However, today as I was taking my picture for this month’s theme, I realized that it really does not take that much time to snap a few pics and then edit.  Therefore, my resolution is twofold.  I’m also going to try to submit multiple pictures per theme to get my creativity flowing.  So I suppose this first Project 12 entry is three-fold…3-in-1.

#1 – Reduce the amount of clothes I have.  I seriously have TOO MANY.  And I will take the unneeded clothes to the flea market first…then I will donate the rest.  I need to recoup my losses, and I’m saving up for a new lens! 🙂

#2 – Participate in this photo challenge.  It gets the creative juices flowing!

#3 –  Stop procrastinating!

My picture definitely represents all of these resolutions.  Don’t worry, I have more.  It seems I’m meant to make resolutions this year since it keeps coming up!

I edited my picture using MCP Actions’ Mini Quick Pick Looks – “Remember When” (hopefully this mountain will be a thing of the past!)
