13 years ago, Jeff Harris made a New Year's resolution - that is to take a picture of himself each day. And 13 years and 4,748 self-portraits later, has done an amazing and inspiring work. Let's check it out.
Jeff Harris started out from writing in a journal, a common new year’s resolution to many which he said ends up to dust after a month or two, he then switched to taking photos which takes less time to do and more creative in a sense. He started taking self-photos in 1999 armed with an Olympus Stylus 35mm film camera and currently has over 4,000 photos and counting.
Here’s a video produced by Time Magazine Lightbox where Jeff explains his project.
Time Magazine Lightbox recently featured his work. Jeff Harris’ story is truly amazing. A lot of his photos are powerful and moving. It got me in awe and deeply inspired me to document my everyday life in film. What about you, what do you think?

The Meopta Stereo 35 aka The View-Master Camera In my junior year of college, I had a crazy idea for a project for my directed study class. I wanted to create my own view-master reels, and to my surprise a view-master camera not only existed, but was available for purchase. Everything about this camera was a difficult trial and error challenge, but the end results are a one of a kind gem.
Use Two 110 Films on a 35mm Camera for Crazy Awesome Shots So there are a lot of tipsters and hacks on the web for using 35mm film on different format cameras, so I went and tried using 110 on a 35mm camera, and this is pretty much what I got on my first try. It’s a bit of a process, but it’s also lots of fun, then again, what in Lomography isn't?
Camera Modification: Turn your LC-A+ into a Rainbow Camera! Personally I am a huge fan of redscaling. It allows you to get some color in your photos, even on the grayest of days. But what if you just want to add the redscale effect to just some of your photos rather than shooting an entire roll this way? Easy enough: use a red filter! And while you're at it, why not throw in some other colors as well?! Read on to find out how you can turn your LC-A+ in to a rainbow camera!
