About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Finally! It took several hours to create and several more to burn. These 19 dvd's will be ready to give to my second graders tomorrow, filled with over 200 photos and video footage of the school year. It is the first time I've ever gotten ambitious enough to undertake an end-of-year project like this. I hope it is meaningful.


  1. Great pic. I love the pattern. Your Grade 2's are going to love their DVDs. I'm doing one for my guys too. I've been doing it for a few years and the kids love it. I use my mac. There's a program, iDVD, that makes the process super easy.

  2. That's what I used too.... once I figured out the in's and out's. However, now that I have a basic clue about it, I'd do one again in a heartbeat!

  3. A rainbow of memories for those students. It will be wonderful to look back on.

  4. What a swell thing to do, a treasure I bet.

  5. How fun for the kids and I'm betting much more 'keepable' than some other gifts might be.
