365 projects are hard so I'm doing Project 52

Last January, I kicked off my first 365 projects. I decided that I could learn more about my camera and photography by forcing myself to take a photo every day for the year. I succeeded — I'm choosing to focus on the positive — on taking about 277 pictures during the year; just 88 photos short of 365.

I'm not a fan of cold and wet, so the Winter and early Spring months were my least productive months. I say the project was a success because I learn how to use my camera better, and I did learn a bit about composition and lighting. But I don't think I have the discipline or time to pick the camera up every day.

So starting this week, I'll be kicking off my new project - Project 52. I'll have a whole week to plan my shoot, and I hopefully will have an interesting photograph to share each week.
