Congratulations Judi FitzPatrick Studio!

Congratulations to Judi, another member who completed her 365 on December 31! Judi's photostream offers a beautiful visual diary of her life and creativity. Her wonderful photostream is full of color and light, and I love her TTV shots. Below is Judi's finisher interview with some of her favorite photos, images she choose because they are mostly unprocessed - basically nothing done in post but maybe a crop.

What inspired you to begin your 365 Project?
I began once before and had quit at about 18 days when I started a new day-time job that at first took up a lot of my time each day. I began a second round on 1/1/10 to prove to myself that I could finish such a project.

How would you describe your photography in just a few words?
Mostly I'd describe my photography as peaceful or tranquil.

Not Venice - 298:365

What surprised you the most about doing the 365 project?
Two things surprised me - 1. my skills didn't improved as much as I had planned and 2. that I was feeling rather saddened as it came to an end.

Tools - 24:365

What did you learn during the course of your project?

I learned that I have so much more to learn, that the Flickr community is chock full of wonderful and supportive people, and that as time went on I could more quickly choose and process a photo for the day.

Do you have an interesting story about taking one of your 365 photos that you would like to share?
The only interesting thing is why I took the Shrug photo on day 165 - I found the pattern at my late mother's house 3 days earlier, came home, and started making it, took the photo after several rows had been knitted. There are 2-3 more as this knitting project progressed and was finished.

What are your future photography plans?
I'm not going to do a 365 in 2011; I need a break. My plan is twofold - 1. to pick a subject I wish I had learned more about and spend some concentrated time on doing just that and 2. reach back into my archives, film and digital, and process some good old stuff.

Congratulations again to Judi! Here is a link to her project slideshow!


  1. Thanks, Michelle, for this wonderful feature and all of the support from the 365 Community members!

    Peace and happiness to all in 2011, and beyond.

  2. Judi, I look forward to seeing your other images and hope you will continue to post in 2011 without the pressure of doing an actual Project 365.
