Default Not Just Another 365er

Hi all,

Well I guess it might be just another 365 day project, I hope it's worth viewing. I didn't go into this lightly, I have thought about doing it for years and have finally made the commitment. The problem is I'm not so good at following things through when it comes to long term things like this. In years past I have taken pictures on a near daily basis and want to get back to that. The biggest thing that swayed me to do this is I think it will help me be a better photographer.

Anyway, it should be a good year we have lots of trips planned.

New Years - 2 Days in Victoria BC
Jan - 2 weeks in Hawaii
May to July -Lots of camping around BC and one trip to WA.
Aug - 8 days Oregon coast
Sept - 5 days in Whistler
Nov - Cabo

I work in the marine industry on the South Coast of BC so I should have some shots that reflect that. Also I'll try and say what camera I used and any other info that might be worth sharing. I may not post them every day but I will try and take a shot every day and post them as soon and often as possible.

Thanks for looking.

Bill


Here is Day 1, not a great shot but shows my new toys to help with this. Shot with one of my Canon SD550's on a tripod in manual mode, over exposed +2/3's of a stop and the flash turned off.

Welcome aboard, Bill - from a fellow Canadian. Based on my own experience I have very much enjoyed this 365 thing and learned much from being on the Camel in general. Certainly looks like the travels you have listed will provide lots of photo opportunities. You are off to a great start here.

I see you also have a Canon G12 - Great little camera for those times when you want to travel light.

That's my favorite Hockey team on your new iPad.

Welcome aboard. Sounds like you will have many photo ops coming up. Can not wait to see them. That is the whole point of a 365 thread. It makes you get out and shoot thereby making you learn.

I have very little photo experience . I wanted to learn so, I jumped in feet first. I am having a blast so far.

Unhappy Re: Not Just Another 365er

Nice new toys! I'm rather jealous as I limp along with my older iPhone, my G9, and a complete absence of iPads.

(Not counting my dslr - I was just comparing apples to apples. )

That was the biggest surprise for me - the difference between the beginning of the year and the end is obvious. Although I was also surprised to enjoy the process. I expected to struggle after a few months.

I'm glad you've joined us!

Thanks for the welcome, Wolf, Pete, Rust, Tracy, and Krispyk. I have seen all your 365's but some are long. I'm working my way through though.

Welcome to the wacky world of the 365's, where anything and everything is fodder for the camera!

Look forward to seeing what you post.

That's ambitious! I (honestly) can't keep up with the volume in this forum, so I try to pop into people's threads when I can and I try to comment when I drop in, but I don't even begin to try to see everything. There's just too much.
