I like to wander along my own photography path, going where I feel and photographing subjects and stories that I'm curious about or offer some sort of inspiration. But when I saw the link shared by the super-talented B.A. Lampman, something about it resonated with me. Discipline. Something I'm lacking when it comes to my art.
Taking a great photograph and sharing it gets a bit of instant gratification, but it's superseded in short order by the next great photograph, then the next one and so on. But with a head chock full of ideas, the only way I'm going to get them out and see if any are worth bringing to fruition, is by having discipline.
So begins #the100dayproject.
An opportunity to work on my art with regularity and have someone to answer to: me. By publicly sharing my participation, I'm in... if I bail, I'll be forever shamed (in my own mind).
I had to come up with a theme to focus on, so when I finally decided on it, I thought "great, this is totally different for me". This theme will be a departure from what I usually photograph. But then as I ruminated on it I realized it's not so far off. But I'm going to stick with it. Because keeping with something I'm familiar with will lessen the stress and pressure of the discipline.
So, DISCARDED it is.
From April 6th to July 14.
I've created a page on my site HERE to keep all the photographs together, but in the meantime, I will share them on my blog and/or instagram and/or facebook as well... all will have the hashtags #the100dayproject & #100daysofdiscarded
Let's see where it goes.
