50/50 Project: Week 1

Here are the results from the first week of shooting something every day. It has been a fun week and I am beginning to see how shooting daily and not repeating myself can get challenging very quickly. Some days I have trouble picking my favorite picture of the day because I shot 50+ frames, other days I just shoot three frames and call it quits. Whatever works!

Day 1-FDR drive (you've seen this one already)
Day 1

Day 2-view from the Great Lawn in Central Park at night
Day 2

Day 3-my try at the "Terry Richardson" style with a little help from my favorite model!
Day 3

Day 4-view of Roosevelt Island across the East River at dusk
Day 4

Day 5-amazing home-cooked goodness! mmmmmm...
Day 5

Day 6-bus stop on Upper West Side
Day 6

Day 7-a Vespa parked on the street on my walk home
Day 7

An unforeseen benefit of shooting every day like this is that it motivates me to want to shoot even more! I take a picture of some random thing and before I know it I am thinking of three different ways to do it better next time. So I guess I'm learning stuff...let's just hope I am this motivated after doing this for another 6 weeks!

That's it until next week...whatcha' think so far?

  1. That first photo looks like an abstract painting...interesting.
    Central Park at night could be a postcard! You should sell it to the post card makers - whoever they are
    I like this. Writing every day in a journal hones one's writing skills. This exercise is similar to keeping a journal. Great idea.
