Last week I started a new photography project – taking an image a day, for 100 days.
Other photographers that I have known who have done this project, some more than once, have noted its frustration and its value, and I have already experienced both over the course of the week. In fact, one led to the other. Being too busy to break out the camera before sunset has forced me to explore tripod-assisted low light photography, in a city scape, a night light, and a constellation in the sky. I have always hated the hassle and bulk of carrying a tripod around, but I have found compromise in a very small and sturdy unit that is easy to carry. With the fewer daylight hours of winter and a busy schedule, I expect that these 3 months will see a lot more low light exploration.
I also look forward to this project taking me to new places in search of daily subjects. I have already discovered interesting things in my own back yard, and I started the 100days in the Potrero Hill Recreation Center.
