Completing a 365 Day Photo Project is a great way to really get to know your camera and also to discipline yourself into practicing your photography every day. Whether you prefer to blog your photos or just post them to your Facebook page or Flickr account, read on to learn how one of our I Heart Faces participants decided to challenge herself to take at least one photo every day.  We were truly inspired by Grethel Van Epps completed project and are so glad that she shared her process with us last year!

I’m just an iphone shooter, but I had started a 365 challenge, and like you Lauren, I had trouble with motivation and lacking ideas!!!
I came across an app you may want to look at. It’s a photography assignment generator, and has tons of assignments and an amazing amount of random objects, places, combinations of terms, techniques. Lots of great example photos too! I’ve photographed things I never thought of trying…like a fork at sunset, or a photographic alphabet. Plus you can set up a daily reminder to keep you on track.
There is a version for people shooting with fancy SLRs as well as iPhone shooters like me! and a free version, which actually has quite a lot of content!

I’m about to finish my third 365 project (been doing it since Jan 1, 2010) and I’m definitely done after this year. Of course, I said that LAST year….

While it’s been great for growing my photography skills (and capturing the past three years of my kids’ lives), I find myself slightly resenting it, so I am going to take a little break. But I’m so glad I did it!

I have wanted to do a 365 project for a few years and make a coffee table book at the end of the year. I can’t seem to stay motivated after a certain point with an unstructured project, but some of the pre-made projects aren’t personal enough for me to want to do them..

*sigh* queen of excuses, I guess =/
