I started Project 365 not knowing the challenge that was ahead of me. I was completely blindsided after the first week of photos. People were saying it was because I was setting the bar too high and doing photos that were too complicated for project 365. I've always had the saying "If you're not going to do your best, then why do it at all." I'm a perfectionist. I didn't like the feeling of forcing myself to have to come up with an idea every day, and even if I didn't like the idea, I still had to do it. Photography is my hobby, and I'd like to keep it that way. Project 365 was turning into a job that I didn't want to be at, and most important, I wasn't trying my hardest on every photo. Sometimes I would just run out of time, I had no ideas, so I would quickly take a photo just to satisfy the requirement of doing one each day. Personally, I don't want to clutter my portfolio with this type of work. This project certainly added a huge amount of amazing images to my portfolio that I am very proud of, and I would of never been able to do it without doing the Project. I don't know where this brings me. I know I'm not doing a photo every day anymore. I will try to do photos as often as possible, but I would love to have an idea I actually like before doing it. I also want to create more online tutorials and videos... maybe some videos with actual production value that isn't thrown together at midnight so I can get my photo done. I just want to thank everyone who follows my work. I have a lot more followers now than I did back in December before I started this project.
