Daily selfies and the 365 project

What would happen if you took a photo everyday for the next wee, month, year?
This is what many people do to track a person's life, a child growing or just for fun!
Ensure you have the face in the same place each time for consistency.

Lots of people have tried this - search for more on youtube and think how you might do yours.

365 project

The Power of Photography

National Geographic has some of the best photographers capturing the world for us all to engage with.
This video celebrates the Power of Photography and you will most likely recognise the work of Steve McCurry who photographed the Afghan girl, now one of the most famous iconic photographs.

Steve McCurry is an exceptional photographer and when you visit his website gallery you see that this image is only one of many images and there are multiple other striking photographs.

By searching google images for further National Geographic portraits you will start to get a feel for what makes a great photograph: focus, composition, lighting, colour, personality, location and depth of field. Many are quite simply taken, but with powerful results.
