One of my New Years Resolutions is to use my camera more.  When I say use my camera, I don’t mean snap things with my phone. 

I love having for my phone for those quick moment shots, but because of it, I feel like I don’t use my big girl camera as much as I would like to or should.

As I was making my list of resolutions, I tried to make a plan to carry out each goal.

I can’t believe that I am going to say this, but in order to carry out my camera resolution; I am going to take a picture a day for 365 days.

This is easy to do when your doing it with your iphone; but I’m going to do it with my big camera.  Your iphone is typically always in your back pocket.  I want to get back in the habit of taking pictures of the everyday moments and great events.  I used to take my camera everywhere. 

My purpose:

1) to sharpen my camera skills

2) to capture more of the little moments with the camera that I love

I did this once before.  I will admit that it was one of the harder goals I completed; but I did it.

I even devoted a whole blog to it.  I started the project in April of 2010 and finished in April of 2011.

Check out my previous project 365 blog if you like.

This time around I am so excited to start this at the beginning of a new year.

Instead of making it a big deal and devoting a blog to it, I’m going to share the photos here every now and again.  I’m hoping once a week to every 10 days.

Last time, I spent a lot of time editing and putting a frame and date around each picture.  This time I’m keeping it simple; in order to keep up with this goal.

So without further ado, here is the beginning to my Project 365-2015:

January 1, 2015: Happy New Year with Bed Head and all.

I love this idea! Your blog is one that I look forward to the most but I am not always good at leaving comments. I want to be better at that.

Beautiful photos. One day I will own a nice camera. It will be on my Christmas wish list or maybe I will come into money! Lol. I can't wait to see more of your year!

I love this. I tried last year to capture a moment everyday (on my iphone), I lasted 2 weeks (i think). Kudos to you!!
