Weekly Photo Project, Week 1

A Fuji X Weekly reader shared with me his Photo-A-Day project, which is a personal challenge to capture at least one picture each day. This is a great way to photographically exercise. Athletes practice daily. Musicians practice daily. If you want to be great at something and stay great at it, you need to regularly challenge yourself. This is just as true with your camera as it is with everything else.

I’ve wanted to do a photo-a-day project for many years, but life has a way of getting in the way of such things. I did start one once and made it about three months into it before missing a day. There are times when capturing just one picture is impractical. That’s why I haven’t even attempted this kind of project for several years.

What I’m doing different this time is taking things one week at a time, which is perfect for this blog because of the name, Fuji X Weekly. My goal is to capture at least one picture each day for seven days. Then, the next week, begin again. I hope to string 52 consecutive weeks together, but, if I can’t do that and I miss a day during the week, I will try again the following week. So it might take longer than one year to complete this 52 week series. How long it ends up taking depends on how much life gets in the way between now and then. Still, I’m challenging myself to not miss any days and capture at least one photography every day for a year.

I hope that you enjoy the pictures and that this series inspires you to try your own photo-a-day project.

        Thanks! Your simulations have been a real game changer for my photography. I hope you’ll like the “Gritty Acros”, it reminds me a bit of pushed Tri-X.

        I can see the pushed Tri-X comparison looking at your images. Can’t wait to give it a try!
