I don't know if anyone else has debated or tried a 365 or even a 52 project, but from previous experience I know that these can quickly become very demanding projects due to the amount of time and creativity they demand. I managed to do a good few months of a 365 last year but found that I was running out of ideas for what to shoot, and when I did I was beginning to lose interest in the shots themselves. So I decided to kill the project off as to not damage my enjoyment of photography as a whole. Another problem I found was that because I was consistently shooting new subjects there was no real way to monitor the progression I was making through developing new skills. This year though I have decided to try something different and work on a monthly project shooting the same subject; myself. Over the course of the year I intend to take a self portrait each month using the skills I hope to develop, and at the end of the year I can use the shots as a record of my progress. I was debating a whole host of subjects to shoot but opted for self portraiture as I am the only subject I can 100% guarantee I will have with me every time I shoot. I thought I would post the idea as a challenge for the users of pixelated to try for themselves too. Obviously you don't need to do self portraits, just shoot the same subject each month. By going for the monthly intervals it gives us all plenty of time to get shots and play about with new ideas. I shall be posting my results in this tread each month so feel free to join in, or if you wish just give it a go as a personal project. So pick up that camera, start shooting and have a great and creative 2012.
