Project 365: January, The First Half • RI Children's Photographer

Two years ago, I did a project 365.  I took one photo each day for the whole year.  Sometimes more than one.  Especially if the photos were of my cat.  

Anyhow, last year I took a break.  I still took photos most days, but I didn't have to pick up the camera every single day.  Of course as a RI children's photographer, there were lots of days when I happily took many photos, but a little breather was good.

This year I decided to do it again.  One photo each day.  So far, I've kept it up.  Not following any lists or prompts or themes; just taking a photo of one thing each day that interests me.  This project was really fun the first time around because it helped me to become a lot more creative in my shooting.  That's something I'm looking forward to again:  being creative, shooting in totally different ways, and learning new things.  

When I did this project in 2015, I added lens information and settings with each photo at the request of a number of other photographers.  I'm doing that again this time, at least for now; I polled photographers in a few different places and the vast majority said they wanted at least camera and lens info, with a little over half looking for settings.  So they're there, and if you aren't interested, just check out the photos.

So take a look below for the first half of January.  Cats, new family members, the ocean, and more.  My own little view of the world.
