M4H Photography Project 52 | Join me in a Photo a Week!!

    This year I am embarking on something entirely different then the norm. I am making photography goals and I intend to stick to them. I want to grow. I want to be inspired. I want to flourish. I am ready. I need more photos of my own family. My kids. Myself even.

    Starting January 1st, 2012 I will be hosting a VERY special Project. I invite you all to follow a long and grow and be inspired with me! The Project will run from 1/1/2012 and will be completed 1/1/2013. What is this project?! Simple. A photo a week for every week of the year. 52 weeks. You will come out of this project hopefully feeling fulfilled, with a memento of every week of the year. Something special for you. Whether you are a hobbyist or a seasoned professional this is something that you want to do to! Why?! Because it isn’t about your clients, it isn’t about perfection. Its about you. Its about your family, your life. So lets begin this journey together. I know that as a team, as a group we can do this. We can hold each other accountable. We can make this happen.

    So now you are probably wondering how this works? That is simple enough too! I have created a Flickr group. If you are not familiar with Flickr it is an amazing online photo sharing community. I will post a theme. One word for the week. You can either choose to follow the theme or create your own. Once your photo is ready to be shared just upload it to the flickr group. If you aren’t into Flickr thats totally okay too. Every week at the completion of the week I will be be posting the new theme to give you time to think it over or take your photo right here on my blog. You can simply upload your image to a photo sharing site such as photo bucket and link it in the comments section of that post. You can find the Flickr group I created HERE. I will also be choosing a couple photos from the Flickr pool to feature along with the new theme so a bit of incentive to sign up! And if you choose not to use the theme I provide, great but please be sure to add a little something something about what your photo represents for that week in the description box of your photo (or posted along with the photo if you don’t use flickr.) You are also welcome to blog your photos on your blog and share them on Facebook!! And spread the word with your friends, the more then merrier!! I am even hoping to get some prizes on  board for every week for one special photo. Be warned though. I said this project was simple. Not easy.

    It isn’t a rigid project with a ton of rules. You do not need to use my Photoshop resources. This again is about you and YOUR photos. I just hope you choose to participate and share with me!

    So in the spirit of our very first week coming up January 1st-January 7th 2012 I am revealing our first theme. The word will be:


    It should help convey your goal. It can be subjective or literal. Its all in how you want to interpret it!

    And you are also welcome to share your images on my Fan page. You can find my fan page HERE or at http://www.facebook.com/myfourhens.

    Happy New Years!!!! I can’t wait to get started!!

      So excited…thanks for doing this!

    2. Sounds like fun! I’ve done a 365 Project, but it’s very challenging to stay on top of it. I like that there will be a theme, too.

    3. Amy Dunn says:

      Best of luck! This project seems way easier than Project 365, so I might have to join you on this one or do something similar. 🙂

      Great idea! Definitely do it, and enjoy! I did this in 2009 (52 Faces). Really good fun and stretched my skills! I’m currently taking a photo per day of our baby son, so that on his 1st birthday, I have 365 memories to look back at. One day I may do a 52 project again.

    15. I’m definetly in. I really need to challenge myself and pick up that camera again and this is calling me! Thanks Sarah for hosting this…even without a prize, I will still do this. Photography is just such an outlet for me. Squee!!!

    21. […] How in the world is Christmas over already?! I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and is ready for the new year!  I’m going to once again try to attempt my project 52.  I think I quit around week 11 last year.  It sounded like a good idea at first but I’m going to try to stick to it in 2012 and do a project 52 following another photographers’ theme each week.  Check it out if you’d like to join me! click here.
