Inspiring Photography Project

What is the "List of Seven"?  Much like project 365 (pic a day) or project 52 (pick a week), "List of Seven" is a pic-a-day project, but only seven days long.  In our busy lives, this is much more achievable than the 365 or 52 projects.  Plus, if you do this 5 to 10 times a year you will land somewhere close to project 52 for the number of photos.

I have written about the "List of Seven" in the past, but this time it is going to be linked to my photography club to follow.  I will do my best to share each day on this blog, so make sure to come back to see my photos.  This will be a live event starting 8/13/2019 to take one picture a day for seven days.  Don't worry if you missed the start time.  The best time to start is today.  Besides, my suggestion is that you do this many times throughout the year.

In the past, I have also created a theme for the "List of Seven".  However, this time it is all about you and what you want to photograph.  If you want to pick a single subject and photograph it every day, that is fine.  If you want to follow a theme for all seven photos, great, go for it.   Just don't make it too difficult. Get the idea?

Here is the challenge for you:

  1. Take at least one photo a day and share it by whatever means you have (social media, website, email, printing, etc.)
    If you don't use social media, choose a few friends to email them every day with the photo of the day.  Since it is only seven days, I am sure they won't mind.   In the first email, let them know what you are doing.  I bet they will enjoy them and may ask for more photos.
  2. Don't miss any days (no make-ups)
  3. Each photo has to be from that day (no pulling from your library)
  4. Any camera will do.  Use your smartphone, point-and-shoot, or high-end digital camera.

That's it.  Keep it simple.  The start date is the day you take the first photo.  That can be today, tomorrow, or the next.  But don't delay too long.

One last thing - let me know what you think about this assignment.  Love it?  I would enjoy seeing your photos, so feel free to email me your shots.  Comments are also welcome.
