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.

    Playing Detective: An Interview with Derek Woods, the Man Behind the Controversial True Detective Photo (NSFW)

    Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.
