So I’ve tried a few 52 week projects. I’ve even tried a 365. And I’ve failed to complete them all. But what I have enjoyed is the photos I get out of them when I put the effort into it. So I’m going to be doing an unofficial 52 week project this year. I’ll be roughly using prompts from the “Creative 52″ book by Lindsay Adler as well as some “shot ideas” from Charlotte Reeves’ book “Dog Shots”. I hope to essentially plan a shot then go out and do it. I find if I don’t, I just do the same old, same old. Over and over and over and frankly it gets dull. It was OK when Summit was growing so quickly as I was basically just documenting the changes. But now that his growth has slowed down to a dull roar, I want to start capturing something a little different.
My last attempt at a 52 week project was two years ago. The prompt was Colour and I loved the shot of Coulee that I got and I wanted to try and get the same photo of Summit. It worked out perfectly.
Then seeing as we were out and about, we took some other colourful photos as well.
I’ve got a few more I still need to edit too. I’m already glad I’ve made the effort for the project. It’s nice to do something different every now and then.

I volunteer for a small non-profit animal shelter (no-kill) and while we are making it financially and taking care of the animals, we don't have adequate volunteers to do all the extras for the dogs and cats, such as regular walking and cuddling.
Animal lovers….PLEASE consider volunteering at your local shelters. There are many, many jobs that need doing, and posting a comment on a blog or on facebook is just not enough. A few hours a week can really help!

So a pet photography chat group I’m a member of is doing a photo a day project. It started late so it’s “just’ a 350 project. But I don’t want to say I’m doing it. Because then I might fail and not finish it. Let’s just say I’m using the prompts as inspiration for now. Nothing more. Nothing less. :)
The problem with photo a day projects is you often end up with photos that you aren’t all that proud of and that you wouldn’t normally share publicly. The great thing with a photo a day project is that you are forced to try things outside your comfort zone and some times magic happens and you are thrilled with the results.
I’m not sure this last one is technically dappled but close enough. ;)
