    Has anyone tried taking one photo a day for a whole year?
    How has it been for you? Were you able to keep it going all year?

    Check out youtube if you havn't already. So many people have done it.

    Most of them are for comedy effect but I had a lecture from an artist who basically took a photo a day for a year, but then displayed the pictures in a gallery on a very slow time frame. So you could be looking at the pictures and might think it was just a still, but then come back later and its had changed.

    It's been fun so far and I do hope my photos will improve as the year progresses. :eek:)

    Knew this thread was around somewhere but didn't have time to look for it yesterday. There are some links in there you may find interesting.

    Actually, while I was looking for this one I saw quite a few, too many to link! Search for '365 project' in MR and you'll soon come up with them.

    Most of them were quite short! :)

    There are tons of community groups on FlickR that do it. It's really hard to do though. Most people don't make it 12 months

    Thank you. I've made it 3 months so far. I hope to make it the full year!

    I'd love to do this, but I travel way to much for work to have my DSLR with me all the time.

    There's a guy in Australia who's photographed the sunrise every day for 8 years or so.

    He must live somewhere a bit more sunny than the way it's been here for the last few months!

    There's the free Project 365 app for the iPhone. You can take a photo or select one from your library. I've been doing it, partly because I like taking photos and trying out photography apps, and partly as a photo diary with a short note of what transpired that day.

    At times, I've taken photos from my library or even screenshots if applicable.

    I wonder if there is an app which could send you a push notification at a certain time of day, say 4pm, telling you that you haven't taken a picture yet. Good way to remember the plan.

    Just use your iCal feature, if youve taken the shot already simply ignore the alert. If not, start lookin'
