Congratulations Jaime Carter!

Congratulations and Happy Birthday to Jaime Carter! Jamie recently completed her 365 project, taking a photo a day with a 50mm lens. The resulting photos are full of beauty, bokeh and color and her photostream is well worth a visit. Jaime provided answers to our interview questions and some of her favorite photos below:

What inspired you to begin your 365 Project?
I was inspired by someone else's 50mm 365 project [Al Ronberg] - who's also a member of the 365 Community - and liked the idea of the challenge.

#355/365 - Fresh Strawberries

How would you describe your photography in just a few words?
My photography is about focusing on the details.. with a splash of colour.

#285/365 - Happiness

What surprised you the most about doing the 365 project?
I was surprised at how easy it was to get a photo each day that I was pleased with.

#226/365 - Custard Square at French Tart Cafe

What did you learn during the course of your project?
I learnt to not plan each day's shot.. that some of the best photos came about by accident. This doesn't mean you can't think of ideas in advance, but to approach each day as it comes.

#233/365 - Scott Kelby Photowalk 2010

Do you have an interesting story about taking one of your 365 photos that you would like to share?
This photo represents probably the most important day of the whole project.. my wedding day in Fiji

#107/365 - Wedding Bouquet & Buttonhole

What are your future photography plans?
Make blurb book of my 365 project, catch up on processing more than a year's worth of older images and will probably dream up a new project to challenge myself.

My final photo, taken on my birthday in Auckland:
#366/365 - La Couronne Cake Boutique

And here's our admin fave:

#14/365 - Summer is here
