3 Tips For Completing A Project 365

Whether you have already started your own Project 365, or are contemplating starting it soon, here are a few tips to keep you motivated throughout  the entire process:

  1. Take your camera everywhere you go. Think about it this way: the more you pick up your camera and shoot, the more you are going to improve your photography skills. This will also challenge you to use your camera in less than ideal situations.
  2. Share your work. Sharing your work on social media will keep you accountable. How? Once you’ve shared your project publicly, people will want to see more and more. Knowing that there are people waiting to see your photos on a daily basis will push you to keep going. This can be a great source of motivation!
  3. Reward yourself. It’s much easier to finish a challenge if there is a prize at the end. Creating a photo book at the end of your Project 365 will serve as a reminder of all the little and big moments that happened in the last year and can be a great way to keep you motivated throughout the year.

  • I have already started my project 365 inspired by a blog post.These are some really great tips that I had been missing out.This post was like a sweet reminder.Thanks for sharing.

  • Great idea. I never heard about this before surely I am going to try this with my new iPhone.

  • Cookie says:

    These sound like great tips! Hmmm…I don’t think I’m ready to do this as an element for my blog, but I really like the idea of practicing daily. Maybe I could use my personal instagram or something for accountability as I take a year to study photography a little more in depth. Either way, great post, thank you!

  • Beth Anne says:

    I did this in 2014 and it was a lot of work but it was also a lot of fun. I mostly used my iphone to take all the pictures and I posted them to instagram with the #photo365 hashtag. I also ate created collages at the end of each month with all my photos.

    Love the idea of a 365 project, but have never done one because I think I would fail. Is it cheating if you take multiple pictures on one day but share them on other days?
