365 Categories

I’m just about finished the 365 pictures/day challenge and it has been fun. At times, or like 11:59pm at night it may not be so fun, and a wack of my photos are forced and not that interesting (or so I think) so after talking to Duane and Matt up in Wawa, we’re going to try something different and this is open to all.

If you would like to join, here is the group:

We are going to do the 365 Categories in 365 days. This means you have 365 days, to take 365 pictures, and I’ll provide the 365 categories. Think of it like a scavenger hunt, or yahtzee. You know ahead of time what you need to take, and you could get most of them done in the first few days if you really wanted. Some are time sensitive, like holidays, and seasonal, but most are not.

Another thing, these are all up to interpretation, some are more specific then others, but it is ultimately up to the photographer what photo fits each idea.

Here is the list so far, it’s a draft, but I’m finally releasing so that others can proof it.
