I'm not doing it for 2007 (I took a year off after the first one too) but I might pick it up for 2008. I'd really like to spend 2007 concentrating on honing my creative vision a bit more. More concentrated series. I'm making it a small goal to get into a gallery someday (nothing too fancy, but nonetheless). In my first P365 I was trying to learn the limits of my Kodak LS420, and upgraded to a Canon Rebel XT during 2005. This P365 let me spend time learning the limits and explore the features my fancy DSLR has. By having full manual control (I leave it on that 95% of the time) I learned how exposure time, aperture and ISO can affect my photos.

I'd really like to thank my friends, family, and most of all Kaela for helping me get through another Project 365. I couldn't have done it without your motivation (and being such good subjects).

If you are doing your own, I encourage you to check out My tips to do your own that I wrote for Photojojo as well as the Project 365 Flickr Group (with 363 members on last count!). You didn't have to start on January 1st either, people join the 365 group every day! So if you are interested, start right now. Flickr makes it a breeze.

If you have comments, you can leave them on the flickr photoset comment page.
