Like a torrid love affair, I have always had an on/off relationship with photography. Sometimes the inspiration just isn’t there.

I get a few monthly photomags and the publishers send me emailed news letters. The one that arrived this week had a fantastic article on 32 inspirational photo projects.

I plan to do all of these projects over the year of 2011, hopefully it will help to keep me inspired and encourage me to be creative. After all, doing something really creative is right up there with some of the most rewarding things in life.

I plan to to a blog post with pictures on each of the 32 projects set by photoradar. Project 1 will in itself have a weekly update of 7 pictures every week.

“Project 1: 365 / one photo a day It doesn’t matter when you start, but there’s no better way to force yourself to think about composition, location and the limitations of your camera by taking a photo every day. Be creative with themed weeks, or months.”

This teaches you to really see. Somedays it’s going to be really hard to find something photoworthy but I’m going to try!  I have started this project on the 17 th January 2011 and plan to finish it on 16 January 2012. Each week will have a theme and at the end of each week, I will post the 7 pictures of that week.  The 5 week days i will use a compact digital and the weekends a DSLR. The “theme” applies to weekdays and the weekends it’s open subject.
