Structuring Your 365 Photography Project

4

The 365 project is one of the best photographic projects to undertake, but it is far from easy as it requires dedication and lots of planning!

Simply put, Project 365 is all about documenting a year of your life one day at a time. It is a project that many photographers try to do, especially during the start of a new year. Not all are able to finish, though. Somewhere down the line, shooters get bored, run out of ideas, or simply don’t want the responsibility of shooting a photo day in and day out anymore.

Due to its immense popularity, there are plenty of Project 365 resources available out there to help guide you in making yours a resounding success!

Capture Your 365

This website dedicates photo challenges for each month, so that you can plan ahead and not get lost as the hours go by. From seasonal challenges, to simple color exercises, this will make sure that you never run out of ideas.

Blip Foto

For the smartphone toting Lomographer, Blip Foto might be a good app to try out, as it can track multiple 365 Projects for you. Everyday, you’ll see thousands of photos from thousands of users, each one fueling ideas for the next day’s potential photo opportunities.

Granted it may be a bit hard for Lomographers to do a 365 Project because of the whole issue with film and development, but that hasn’t stopped others before! Just remember to note which days go with which frames and you’l be right as rain. Good luck! We’d be honored to see you with a whole 365 album next year!

    The European Dream - Selfies from Oranienplatz: Exhibition in Berlin

    In more ways than one, Lomography is an art form as much as it is an effective tool to communicate. This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin.

    Photographers on Why They Still Shoot Film (Part 2)

    It is Film Photography Day, and we are counting the ways the activity fuels the imagination. One photographer likens it to the soulful sound of an LP. Another chases its risk or does it with a leap of faith. But the consensus is clear: Film photography keeps people on their toes for the best possible shot!

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
