Project 52

Some people say resolutions are dead, some defiantly don’t make any. Me, I’ll take mine in moderation. The only concrete goals I came up with this year are to take better care of myself, stay inspired, and go on more photowalks. I’ve been thinking more about that last one and my goal, really, is just to become a better photographer. That’s where Project 52 comes in.

Project 52 has a million different names and guidelines and goals but essentially what it is is a 52 week photography project where you publish one great photo from the week for an entire year. I have done a 365 Photo Project before but that was a little intense. The goal for me here is quality and not quantity, so Project 52 seems like a good fit.

Project 52, in a nutshell – For the next 52 weeks (all of 2013) I will post one really great picture that I took, once per week for 1 year. I will take every picture on my SLR camera. No iPhone pictures and definitely no Instagram reposts. My goals are to go outside and see more of my world, to use my SLR more because it really is an amazing piece of equipment, and to consciously bring my SLR with me even though it seems like a pain. I’m not going to set a specific day to post Project 52 photos like I do with The Monday Mix. Most likely they will be posted on Sundays but my plan is to post the shot when I know I’ve gotten The One for the week.

Here I go!

  1. How exciting!

    This will be my third year of doing 365. I started mid-February in 2011 and haven’t looked back. I gave myself a break this December, but feel invigorated and excited about the challenge.

    Love that you are doing 52 weeks, that will be perfect! I agree about inphone/instagram, too. I want to challenge myself and I’d relied too heavily on instagram the past few months.

    Good luck!

  2. I’m planning something similar! I wanted to do a 365 again, but knew I didn’t really want to commit to that. So I’m going to do sort of a weekly round-up. Excited for my first one. Not sure where ill be posting, yet. But probably on tumblr.
