I was recently reading through some photography material I purchased, and one of the instructors mentioned that shooting in the same situation over and over again is a great way to measure progress. As you grow, you approach the same things differently. You see them differently, you process them differently. If I were to look at a picture of a flower I took a year ago, and compare it to a picture of a family I shot last month, how would I know which was better? But if I compared a picture of a flower from a year ago with a picture of a flower from yesterday, it would be way easier to see any changes.
I’m in the beginning stages of a 365 project for 2014. One photo per day for a full year. I attempted this back in the Fall of 2012, and only got a few months in before giving up. This weekend, I went back to look at those photos. I also picked 10 photos that I’ve taken in the last couple weeks and found matching counterparts. Here’s what I came up with:
I’m excited to maybe do this again a couple years from now 🙂
