Recent participation in some photography forums has piqued an interest in doing a Project 365. Photography has been a hobby on and off for over 40 years and in the last 18 months my interest has intensified. So I've decided to jump in, give it a shot (no pun intended) and see if I can shoot every day for a year.

My expectations for this project are that it will provide motivation to expand my skills both behind the camera and in post-processing and provide a vehicle for experimentation. My photog pal Doug has been a great mentor, so I want to publicly say thanks; this is your fault (kidding of course).

It is going to be a learning experience, so any and all comments, critiques and encouraging words are welcome.

Thanks for viewing.

Yard Art

4/24/10 - Day 127
I've been experimenting with Lightroom presets and have started to create some of my own.  Therefore, today's Daily Shoot assignment was perfect: "Experiment in the digital darkroom today.  Make a photo and post-process it any way you like to unleash your creativity."  I went looking for a colorful subject upon which I could apply my new "Paint the Scene" preset.  For comparison, I've uploaded the original image to my Runner-ups gallery on Smugmug.
