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 19- Chrome Branch

Believe it or not, this is a branch outside my allergist's office! I went for my allergy shot this morning on the lookout for a pic of the day. Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed with the shot once I got it downloaded this evening. So... what a great opportunity to start experimenting with Photoshop Elements. (Figured I couldn't make it any worse!) This is an effect called "chrome", and I thought it made it look pretty funky!


  1. Funky. Way to make the best of your shots (both of them).

  2. Cool effect. Makes an interesting abstract image.

  3. Wow, really interesting. Sure looks like liquid metal, or I can see a lizard shape there, too. Should venture into experimenting with some effects myself - thank you for the inspiration!

  4. A cool abstract. Even the amazing Bert Monroy says the best way to learn Photoshop is to play! I guess you know that being a teacher.
