Photo Project 365
One photo a day for a year (2012). Now that I have a phone with a data plan, I feel that I can commit to it. Jaynee’s Instagram yesterday morning inspired me to give it a try. You don’t have to start on January 1st, but I’d love to have more people join us. (I’ll keep this page updated with any changes to the project; zepfanman.com/365 redirects here.)
The Boring Details
I don’t know if the Android has an app similar to this, but I plan on using the free iPhone Project 365 app (or Instagram) to tweet my daily photo. You can search Twitter for “zepfanman Project 365“. The app automatically uploads a reduced-size photo 640 pixels long to twitpic.com; I’ll mainly be using the app to post screenshots of the monthly calendar view. I’m sure the details of my method will change, but if I don’t get a chance to tweet the daily photo, I will make sure to upload each full resolution photo to Flickr every few days or so with the proper metadata to keep it all organized:
I’ve heard that it’s a good idea to pick a token object to photograph first thing each morning just in case you don’t get around to taking a picture of anything else that day. This may be a bad idea, but I’m going to make the token my sleepy face.
Let me know if you’re interested in joining me for the ride with your own Project 365. Happy 2012!
