366 – A Photo a Day 2012

366 Project completed (2012 was a leap year so one extra day to shoot).

I’m not quite sure exactly what I wanted to achieve with this project – I never had one main aim.

It was never about getting a whole year of perfect shots – I have lots that aren’t and a fair few taken on my phone camera, but I also have some shot’s I love.  Some of my best or favourite images I’ve taken didn’t even make my 366 wall.

 It’s turned out to be a great diary and I am amazed how I can remember every day of 2012 – even tho the photo representing that day was only a split second of it!

I now feel comfortable carrying my camera wherever I am, having my camera at my side all the time gave me opportunities for pics I may not have had if I hadn’t been doing this.  I have met new people, made new friends, gained experience and most of the time enjoyed it.  I have a record of Ideas within these photo’s – and I made mistakes I know how to correct.  Some may seem quite random but have a meaning to me – others were completely lazy snaps – others I really worked at and some are planned and some are spur of the moment.

Will I ever do it again – Hmmm Probably not – but who knows.

It’s been a bit of a struggle on and off – nearly quit 366!   I do have some photo’s this month I love – and a lot that well are really complete and utter —-!!

The worst disaster for me this month was scratching the sensor on the D700 🙁  So gutted!!  I new a new sensor was going to be expensive but did not expect £740 just for the sensor – add labour and shipping to send it away and it comes to nearly a thousand pounds!!

June a month in Summer Time – not that you’d have know it this year!!  No where near as many summery pictures as I’d of expected to get.

My favourite picture this month is my brother Gary with his fish on the last day of June.  Gary never lets me take his photo so I was pleased when he asked.  If I normally try and take his pic he gives me the middle finger!!  Actually looking at the photo I have a feeling that’s his middle finger in the fishes mouth holding it up :-0

Another month has flown by!!  We have had some beautiful sunsets this month – lot’s I have missed 🙁  I do like my pic of the sunset at La Longue Rocque , Le Route de Paysans tho.  It’s been quite a hectic month and i’ve also been enjoying talks and photo’s from the Guernsey Photography Festival events.

Well I’ve realised doing this 366 how hectic my life can be.  I new most days would be quick snaps but I had hoped that I’d have spent a bit more time on some photo shoots or projects.

In saying that I do love a few of my ‘Snaps’ especially the one of my Isaac & Emmie sharing a milkshake.

I loved the fog we had in March and getting out with the camera.  First time I’ve attempted photo’s in the fog and I now look forward to foggy days 🙂

February ended with a beautiful day and it was so warm for this time of year.  My favourite pic this month is my last one “the leap year” photo of Isaac with Betsy Bear and my favourite flowers Daffodils.

January’s Photograph a day is done and was not too hard most days.  Although my time for taking pics has been very limited I took more photo’s I like than I expected!   My favourite this month is the Cow – Just makes me smile as I asked it to pose and it put it’s foot forward and head up as if it new what I had said. 🙂
