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.

Day 1- Happy 2011!

My daughter and I had fun trying to use a flashlight to make "2011" with a slow shutter speed. Two things learned here: #1- next time use a smaller flashlight that turns on and off dependably, and #2- this is harder than it looks!


  1. Love this picture and love the idea! Thanks so much for the inspiration. Looks like a must try. Happy 2011 to you too.

  2. I see you are starting the year with a challenge. Looking forward to your upcoming photos.

  3. Very creative. I love it. Now I'm thinking of a laser pointer version......

  4. How fun and clever! Happy New Year to you and your family and congrats on your meeting the challenge and jumping in again.

  5. Cool shot! My daughter and I tried the flashlight thing for Earth Hour back in the spring. SO much fun!

  6. Great photo, but I can imagine the effort in getting it right! Happy New Year, and nice to see that you are going on for the second year, too.

  7. This is a great image! I will have to try it out one day! I have just started my own 'project 365' for the first time....I hope I make it all the way through!
