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.

Container & Contents

5/22/10 - Day 155
Today's Daily Shoot assignment #188: "Baskets, bags, and boxes: containers often go unnoticed.  Make a photo focused on the container rather than the contents." was perfect because I was able to shoot the container with the contents.

My Olympus point & shoot is good, but I was getting frustrated with the lack of control on exposure, shutter speed, depth of field, etc.  Read about this new camera just out with a fast f1.8 lens, good zoom and ability to shoot in multiple modes.  It was the same price as the lens I've been thinking about so am giving it a try.  Since I don't carry the dslr everyday, this looks to be a great alternative.
