The #365photos Challenge

I have trouble committing to things. I must have said “I’ll do this one thing, this many times, for this duration of time” at least 20 times in the last few years and very rarely have I managed to follow through. Life, laziness, health, circumstance and money problems have played a part, but you know the old saying – where there’s a will, there’s a way and I never really found the way, so no excuses really.

Recently I have rekindled my love of photography. I also have gained significant amounts of confidence as a photographer, so I’ve decided that the 365 photos challenge would be a good way to combine my love of taking photos and my need to prove to myself that I can commit to something and follow through.

Additionally, VSCO was kind enough to give me just about all of their filters and presets in late 2016 for me to make a YouTube tutorial video series with. I haven’t gotten around to it yet because I’m trying to familiarise myself with the insane amount of filters and presets they offer, but this idea was sort of a no-brainer when I thought about what I wanted to do.

Most of, if not all of the photos will be taken with my Canon EOS M, Canon EOS 70D and iPhone 6s+ and will have filters/presets/film emulations applied. I will also be shooting with my Canon TLb, Canonet 28, Olympus Trip 35 and Polaroid film cameras, which I will use a variety of real films with.

I initially planned for the first photo to be something New Years-y. Unfortunately, like the fickle bugger that it is, fate had different plans and I ended up spending the first day of 2017 in hospital, which is the picture below, I think it actually came out alright, considering I shot it left-handed while barely being able to keep my eyes open.

I will be adding to this article every day as well as making it a featured post, so that it stays up the top. I’ll also be posting the photos to my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages sporadically.

Welcome to day one.
