New Camera and Project

You know how it is at the end of one year and beginning of a new one? You get that want to make changes and improve my life thing. Or maybe that's just me. Naturally, there's plenty of outside influence since everyone is making resolutions, brainstorming their one word, setting goals, and generally evaluating their lives.

There are myriad photography projects - 365 (one image per day, although it would have to be a 366 project in 2012), 52 (one image per week), and others.

Sarah over at My Four Hens Photography is hosting a Project 52 and I'm joining in. I hope that a picture a week will be a little more manageable than one per day. She's including a theme each week, and participants are free to follow the theme...or not.

In the time between weekly posts, hopefully I can get back in the habit of posting some random pictures. I don't think I've mentioned it here, but I was able to get a new camera last month. I'm now the proud owner of a Canon 60D. I'm also planning to move from being a hobbyist photographer to being a part-time professional photographer. Scary, but I'm going for it.

New camera & no card - what a dork!

So I'm looking forward to an exciting photographic 2012. What about you? What plans do you have?

Congratulations on your new camera! I'm jealous (Canon user too). I'm swiching to 52 as well but hadn't thought of joining a project. I'm going to head over now to the link you provided. Thanks!

Love the Lego self portrait! Haven't decided on photos in 2012 - I love the daily posting. But... We'll see what develops I think.

Cools camera too :-)

Congrats taking the steps to go from hobbyist to part-timer pro. That's my dream and it scares the heck out of me, so it's wonderful to see someone else who has the guts to take the next steps. Wishing you lots of good experiences!
