I love Flickr. Everyday on Flickr, I see photographs that truly blow my face off. I am literally blown away by the quality and quantity of inspiring photos on Flickr. I love the fact that I can share my photos and get feed back and meet cool people who are also sharing their photos.
Lately, I’ve wanted to push myself to take more creative shots and explore new lenses and formats including, lomography. I’ve been thinking of joining the 365 challenge on flickr for a while, but when i went and looked at the lengthy “group rules” for 365 days, I was like “uh, it has to be a self portrait”, then “if I miss a bunch of days they’ll boot me! Uh the pressure”, then “only one photo a day”, then I was like “lame, I should do my own thing”.
I don’t think expressing yourself should have rules or limits. Plus, if I had to take a self-portrait everyday, I’d go mental. Seriously, there are enough pictures of me on teh internets.
I guess I’m more interested in exploring my photography and creativity than the sides of my face with varying degrees of expression. Now, that doesn’t mean I won’t post mirror self-portraits of me and my camera or introspective shots of my feet with and without brightly coloured animal socks… It would be a crime to not share my favourite duck socks with the world. That’s why I’m calling it “Mostly 365”. See by adding mostly, you can get away with a lot.
If anyone is currently a 365er on flickr, add your set link to my comments. I’d love to see your photos!
Even Especially the ones of your feet =P Also 365ers, what has your experience been like?
I’d love to see others take up my Mostly 365 challenge. If the 365 thing is a bit too much for you, then just try to take a shot every couple of days. Seek to create more cool stuff and share it with us!
