For those of you looking for a project that doesn’t last quite as long as 365 Project, may I suggest you consider joining me in a Day50 project?
Back in 2009, on the 50th day of the year, I took 50 photos with my 50mm lens (you can see all 50 photos in this set on flickr). What a blast! I loved the project for a couple reasons:
- There was no time large time commitment – the project was over in just one day.
- You didn’t have to do anything special – I just went through my normal day and took my camera with me wherever I went. Some of my photos were more artistic some were more “hey, this is what I’m doing right now”
- It forced me to use a lens that I love, and yet rarely use
The 50th day of the year is February 19, which happens to be a Saturday this year, which might make it easier for others to particpate (in 2009, it was a work day, so I had to bring my camera to work, which I felt a bit awkward about, so I didn’t get many pictures during the day). Don’t have a 50mm lens? No problem, just take 50 photos at 50mm on a zoom lens, or at any set focal length if you don’t have a zoom lens that covers 50mm. Don’t have a DSLR? That’s fine, just commit to taking 50 photos in one day.
This is my favorite “quickie” photography project I’ve ever done, so I think a few of you might enjoy it as much as I do. If you decide to do it, too, after you post your photos somewhere, leave a link in the comments (of this post or any post) and I promise to go check out your photos!
