I like taking photos. I started in high school when I learned my way around the dark room. My dad gave me my first camera, a Minolta single-lens reflex with a few different lenses. I still have it, it is a little worse for the wear, but I rarely use it because I don’t shoot with film very much anymore.
I have used pinhole cameras, digital cameras, even a digital pinhole camera. I used to turn my classroom into a camera obscura once a year when we were studying light and optics in grade 8 Science.
The Daily Photo Project
I take a photo a day, every day.
I started in 2012 while on a trip to Asia. The first year I only used my iPad, here are the daily iPhotos from 2012. I started taking daily photos when I was visiting my sister-in-law in Macau. Last year I moved from Innisfail to Edmonton; the photos are a great travel journal of the different places I have lived and visited.
In 2013, I loosened the rules on my daily photos. I still mostly use the iPad because I usually have it with me, but I also use my digital camera (my first Fuji.) I allow myself to edit some photos, mostly cropping. I also started exploring a different theme every month. That has added another dimension to the project for me. I love seeing how the collections evolve. The themes are related, but also stand alone as a collection. Here are my daily Photos for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
