2010 - technique a week
 
Hello all
I wanted to take a picture a day this year so i have my own gallery of images by next New Year's eve. However, its not me - it was destined to fail. I find it hard to get inspired so it was never going to work.

I have a new plan though and its very exciting - a technique a week.

So I try something new each week and this will expand my knowledge and should be fun (and require only 52 bits of inspiration rather than 365!!) So any suggestions for thing I could try would be really appreciated. I've got landscape, abstract, travel, macro, portrait, wildlife, night and sport so far as a starter so I'm good for a couple of months. I realise I might have to split these down further to get 52. I'm planning to pick up ideas from magazines too but anything you can add would be good...

Anyone want to join me?

Good idea. Many have started down the 'photo a day' route, but none have kept it going.

How about rear curtain flash, HDR, Multiple exposure, fill flash, white balance shifting with gels on the flash, and hand holding at low shutter speeds and no stabilisation?

Brilliant. I have just learnt how to set my Speedlight up to work 'off camera' so good to have some flash things in there. Thanks.

On your pick about wildlife, 4 years ago I started to mess around with the hummingbirds in and around my yard. Seems like easy pickin's. Since then along with the other birds that fly by, I have taken about 30,000 no less pictures, sounds like a lot. Believe it or not most of it was about exposure and controlling shutter speed. Then you have ISO and aperture lighting flickers and most of all,,,,,,"processing". Processing is where the photo a day people fail in my view. Reading about techniques should count for photo a day. Anyway. add "being ready to not miss a shot" is a good one to work on when you think about how different everything out there is. :D
