Happy New Year

Okay, so I have a bunch of photos that I need to prepare for the last 2 months of 2009 and I'll try to get those up soon.

I had gotten a bit tired of the photo-a-day thing, so I decided I needed some new inspiration. This year, I have two projects. I know, I know ... you're wondering how I'll manage two projects when for the past year I couldn't even keep up with the one!

Well, I have a different focus this time and I'm hoping it helps keep me motivated. The two things I'll be working on are:

Self Portraits 365 - I've seen a lot of people doing this. It's a spin on the photo-a-day thing. I will do some form of self-portrait every day, even if it's just a photo of my hand or something. This way I have a specific subject in mind every day. Sometimes I can be lazy and just snap a quick shot before going to bed, but other days I can try and be more creative. I've already started a set over on flickr here.

52 Photowalks - I read about this project idea over here. The goal is to get out of the house once a week and walk around snapping photos. I'm hoping to do "themes" or "areas" for these walks and I have a list of ideas that I'm excited about - the difficulty will be finding time. My goal is to do almost all of these walks in the Philadelphia area so at the end of the year, I'll have covered a decent amount of the city and surrounding area. I've posted my first one over here although I haven't decided on a format for these yet. More to come later.

Thanks for reading everyone, and hopefully I'll stay motivated this year.
