Tomorrow I start possibly the biggest undertaking I’ve ever attempted. I’ve tried in the past. I’ve failed. I’ve tried another method. I’ve failed. Tomorrow I begin my Capture Your 365 photo-a-day project. I am nervous.
I think, in the past, I have set my standards too high. I have expected perfection instead of just having fun and learning. This time I am hoping to approach it with a much more laid back attitude. Probably most images will be captured on my iPhone using Instagram for filters. Some will be using my trusty Nikon. I will try to not to be a camera snob on this project (like I was on all the others). I am forcing myself to realize that a camera phone takes very fine pictures, thank you very much! I won’t be the carpenter who blames his tools because, really, photography is about seeing the image. Any camera can capture that. The challenge is getting back to basics and remembering why I love photography.
I hope you will join me on my year long journey. At the end of it all, I hope to fall back in love with an art form I love so much.
