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.

Glitter Lamp

Trying to get caught up in posts from over the weekend. I received Photoshop Elements 9 for Christmas, however need to first install additional memory for my iMac. But I clearly messed something up in trying to install the RAM, and will soon be off to the Apple store. (I knew it wouldn't be as easy as I'd hoped!) Anyway, no Elements until the memory issue is rectified. At least the old memory still works! Meanwhile, my daughter got a glitter lamp for Christmas. Love the close-up view of the swirling glitter (processed in good old iPhoto). It almost takes my mind off my (or my computer's) memory issues!


  1. Sorry to hear about your memory or should I say your computer's memory. Unfortunately, these things always end up to be more complicated than they seem. However, a trip to the Apple store is always fun although expensive. I'm sure you'll have a great time with Photoshop. It's lots of fun. However you did just fine without it. Great shot. You captured the glitter and the movement.

  2. Hi Kristy! Sorry not to have been by your blog for a while. Just wanted to say if you need help with Photoshop Elements 9, come over to Elements Village forum. You'll find a great bunch of people who know just about everything about Elements.


  3. Very pretty with the colour and small shapes; good eye!

    Julie's suggestion is a good one - Elements Village is a great place.

  4. How festive! A party in a lamp it looks like. A ditto on going to the forum for help.
