How Completing A Project 365 Will Improve Your Photography

In the last video I spoke about the Project 365 that I was just about to complete. Well, I finished it up yesterday, December 31st. It was actually a project 366 for me since I started the project on January 1st, 2012 This video is about how you can improve your photography by completing your own project 365:

I have become a better photographer over this last year and I owe a lot of it to the Project 365. Here's a couple of benefits I've realized as a result of completing the Project 365:

1. I have improved my ability to see things as a photographer-Over the course of the year I noticed that I was starting to see the world through the eyes of a photographer more and more. This allowed me to focus on the important parts of what I was seeing and take better photographs.

2. My composition skills have improved-Compared to last year I am better at placing images in the viewfinder of the camera, resulting in better photographs. This is entirely due to taking more photographs.

3. I am becoming my own best critic-Over the last year my skill at critiquing the photographs I make has improved, This means that I spend less time staring at the computer wondering which photographs are best. I have developed a taste for what I like and what I don't like and that makes me a better photographer in the end.

Bottom line, if you are looking to become a better photographer I would heartily suggest that you embark on your own version of a Project 365. The benefits you will get are many and you will have fun doing it!

At the end of the video I have added about 35 images from my Project 365 showing some of the different pieces of life that I captured during the year. If you want to see the entire 366 images you can check out my Project 365 set on Flickr
