In 2010, I did a 52 weeks blogging challenge, where I blogged about a particular prompt once a week for a year. I had so much fun with it, that when 2011 started, I was ready to do it again. I was ready for a new challenge, this time with color.
My personal 52 Colors Project is a mix of three of my favorite things – blogging, photography, and color. Having a task to focus on helps me blog, taking photos regularly helps me learn my camera, and finding a weekly color helps me document my life.
My guidelines are pretty simple: One photo taken by me per week for 52 weeks, with a color as the focus. Then I’ll go out (or stay in) and take photos of things in that color, arrangements that have the color, playing with textures, whatever strikes my fancy. At the end of the year, I’m going to have those photos printed and turned into a book to remember the challenge.
My goal is to document my life while exploring photography. I’m also curious what the daily colors I see and surround myself with are. Color is the first thing I notice, so finding 52 colors to blog about is a joy.
With that in mind, in July 2011 I created my 52 Colors Project Digital Kit, so that anyone who’s interested can do a similar color challenge! For more information on that, click here.
