Speak up, sonnyboy!

So I've made it one month into the 365 project.


A few reflections:


I haven't gotten sick of doing it yet. It hasn't actually been a struggle yet to think of something creative to do. I have been lazier some days than other days, but so far, the creativity is flowing well. I'm glad, because that's one of the big reasons I started this project.


I have learned some stuff about lighting. I hope to learn a lot more. I want to learn *faster,* so it might be time to really dig in and start reading up.


I feel ambivalent about having a photostream full of *me*. I can only look at myself so much. Part of the weirdness in my photostream comes from being sick of looking at my own face and because of that, trying to do weird stuff with it so it doesn't look like the same ol' same ol' all the time. I wish I could bring the creativity I feel when doing self-portraits to other kinds of photography. I think that will be eased somewhat once the weather stops sucking and I can do more stuff outside.


I am pretty much overwhelmed by the amount of attention I'm getting on Flickr with this project. My inbox is out of control. It's a good feeling, but I feel bad for being unable to keep up with visiting everyone who comes to visit me. A HUGE THANKS!! to all of you for making me feel creatively validated. I'm feeding on it big time. It is great and I really appreciate it.


What else...oh yes. I think I'm going to start doing some sorta theme weeks, to start stepping out of my comfort zone. For instance, I do not do much black and white photography, so I think starting today, I will do a week of black and white.


All right, I think that's all I've got for now. Over 'n' out for the moment...
