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.

Spider Web- Remix

In mid-August I shot an orb weaver spider. Curious that I should find an almost perfect web in the drizzle this afternoon just feet from where that shot happened! My first spider web shot was back in early June, and I wasn't satisfied with it. These shots are much more gratifying!


  1. I never come across webs and you are doing a remix - probably these old eyes that can't spot them. These are gorgeous webs - so lacy and intact! The tiny water drops make it, like little jewels along the whole pattern. I really like your off-centre composition in the first one, followed by the close-up to show off the pattern and the drops. B&W was a good idea; can you lighten them up just a bit without blowing the highlites? Really well done, Kristy!

  2. Amazing web shots! I agree that B&W was the way to go. Bravo!

  3. Aren't they amazing so close? You do seem to have captured jewels, hope they are printed large!

  4. Fantastic - what great focus and lighting! :)

  5. These are great. I especially like the composition of the second one. I love seeing dewy webs but I've given up trying to shoot them.
