A couple of days ago, I wrote about how writing a blog every day is making me read more blogs every day, too.
Today’s find was Kristin’s Notes. I found her 101 in 1001 list inspiring. And I admired her commitment to shoot at least one photo every day. But I was most intrigued by something called Project64.
Project64 (or just P64) is about six photographers and one box of 64 Crayola crayons. Every week they pick a different color, wander off to shoot, and then post the results on their blog.
It’s a simple idea, I know—but it’s brilliant as well. Looking for specific elements like colors or geometric shapes is a great way to sharpen your eye. And seeing how other photographers approach the same task is also a wonderful way of broadening your horizons.
If nothing else, P64 inspired me to pull out my box of crayons this morning and see them from a different perspective:
I’ll be back soon with my entries for “yellow green,” “carnation” and “chestnut.”
I’ve tried to blog everyday before and I usually run out of things to say. Good luck 🙂
I bet you could blog every day if you decided it was something you really wanted to do. You strike me as a pretty perseverant person. 🙂
Thanks for the note on my blog! I’ve really loved Project 64 – it’s amazing how much more of your surroundings you ‘really’ notice when you’re looking. Can’t wait to see your take on the colors!
