Every Day 2016Every Day 2016

Over more than a decade of publishing my photography on this site, I have presented hundreds of photos. Many hundreds more, however, remain unfinished, unprocessed, or even untaken. Is this a necessary side-effect of photography being a hobby instead of a paid gig? Perhaps, but my workflow and mindset are largely to blame.

A solution: I will take at least one photo every day in 2016, and upload the results to this page as quickly as possible.

The goals of this project are to cultivate a faster workflow, getting photos out of the camera and onto the site more quickly; to focus on getting photos closer to perfect in-camera, rather than relying on time-consuming and procrastination-ready computer processing; and to broaden my ideas about which photos are worth sharing, getting away from the idea that everything must be a masterpiece.

I'm not promising these will all be beautiful, meaningful, or even very good. But hopefully as the year goes on, more and more of them have all three of those qualities.
