Congratulations to Micah who completed his 365 on December 31st! His final photo was this one
Micah's project was full of amazing portraits and vibrant colours and here are his answers to our finishers questions....
What inspired you to begin your 365 Project?
2 things: The desire to be a better photographer and to be involved in a community. Anyone can take and post 365 photos but if you don't encourage others and get encouraged by others then a huge opportunity is lost.
How would you describe your photography in just a few words?
Photos that aspire to tell stories.
What surprised you the most about doing the 365 project?
That I could actually be disciplined and that I never lost the love of doing it. It became part of my day, life, and identity and rarely just a check mark on a To-do list,
What did you learn during the course of your project?
That creating art is an art unto itself. We all have the same 24 hours and, for the most part, the same tools and yet the options for creation are limitless.
Do you have an interesting story about taking one of your 365 photos that you would like to share?
Stories, at times, were almost as important as the image itself. One of the best stories came when engorged ticks were falling off our dog and we were finding them around the house. I knew right away what a great photo this would make -
But the best part was the reaction to it. People were totally disgusted but almost equally as enthralled by the image. This solidified the fact that, for me, great images inspire conflict.
What are your future photography plans?
I’m sure I’ll wake up on Jan 1, 2011 and take a picture. But my future photog plans are to solidify my style and to create more orchestrated images that tell greater stories.
Some great shots from Micah's 365
