A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
The Holidays are over: all the eggnog has been drunk and the presents opened.
Some of you have already had coffee, grabbed your new camera and are ready for a photo challenge for the coming year.
Or maybe some of you are still in your jammies whilst Instagramming your new Angry Bird slippers.
Well, we’ve got some amazing photo projects to inspire and motivate you all!
From daily year-long endeavors to self-portraits and solargraphs, there’s a project that’ll suit your photo personality.
1. Photo Ideas for the Self-Portraitist
Are your self-portrait photos a daily habit, scheduled between having coffee & combing your hair? Or are you looking to start the habit? Well, here are some awesome examples of folks who’ve experimented with photographic self-portraiture.
2. A Photo Project For the Family Guy or Gal
Take photos of each family member once a year as a unique way to capture your family’s “growth” like photographer Diego Goldberg did in “The Arrow of Time.”
Mr. Goldberg has been taking a picture of his whole family once every June 17th since 1976!
See the full photographic family timeline here.
3. Daily Photo Ideas for the Camera-Shy
Perhaps you’re a photographer whose personality is like that of an eager yet timid woodland squirrel—you’re nuts about photography, but you quickly scurry away to hide whenever anybody tries to snap a pic of you.
Well, here are projects within your natural comfort zone!
4. 365 for the iPhoneographer
Get Photo365—this app makes it super easy to keep track of your first (or third!) photo 365 project!
The Photo365 app lets you take photos directly from your camera or your camera roll, and you get the option of seeing all your daily pics in a handy monthly view!
5. A DIY Project for the Patient, Film Enthusiast
Well then, we challenge you with capturing your own solargraph this year!
A solargraph is basically the photo that results from a pinhole camera that’s designed for a six-month-long exposure!
Get the deets on how to make one yourself with Ilya’s handy tutorial here!
Solargraph featured was taken in Germany, a collaboration between Robert Fosbury & Tarja Trygg.
