DIY Beauty Dish

Out of a plastic flower pot, some gutter parts, a CD case spindle, a convex mirror, and some spary paint I made a do-it-yourself beauty dish. Not bad for less than $20!

About This Blog

This site is a 'one photo a day' photoblog. I take, edit, and post one new photo each day for as many days in a row as possible; hopefully reaching 365 consecutive days. The purpose is to improve my photography skills and to force myself to be more creative by coming up with something new every single day even when just staying around the house.

Thanks for visiting!

Your Own Photo Project

Here are some tips on how to get started with your own daily photography project.

Bring Your Camera Everywhere
You never know when a photography opportunity will present itself. Some great photos can be taken while going shopping or on your way to work so get in the habit of taking your camera with you whenever you can.

Make Posting Easy
Having an easy way to post and archive photos is very important. Flickr is good option or use blog software such as Wordpress or Blogger. Try to update your blog every day so that you do not get backlogged and start feeling overwhelmed.

The project is a great way to experiment and try something new. Never tried night photography? Never used off-camera flash? Do it now!

Mention a Few Words
Add a small description to your photos. It will help you remember down the road and it helps your project's followers as well.

Do not Stop
You will get tired of taking a photo every single day and you will feel like you ran out of ideas. Just stick to it. The end result will be worth it!
