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.
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!)
