Starting the 365 Project Challenge

starting the 365 photo project 2015 photo project themes

I’ve wanted to do a 365 Photo Project Challenge for a long time, but like many other times in my life, I feel like I have too much going on and not enough time.  But, as the year draws nearer to an end and I’m trying to start doing more of the things that are important to me and less of the things that are well, …not important.  Photography is one of the most important things in my life but one I still have a lot more to learn.  It’s also part of my 30 before 30 list – 30 things to accomplish before I turn 30 years old.

I like to have a mixture of guidelines and freedom.  For that reason, I wanted to have some form of a theme but not be tied down to just one.  That’s how I decided on doing a separate theme per week – so 53 themes over the course of a year.  The first and last theme are only half weeks.

For me, my week’s themes are running from Mondays – Sundays and here they are:

  • Week 1 – Newness (starts on Thursday 1st – Sunday 4th)
  • Week 2 – Cold
  • Week 3 – Power
  • Week 4 – Food
  • Week 5 – Tired/Sleep
  • Week 6 – Pets
  • Week 7 – Romance
  • Week 8 – Body Parts
  • Week 9 – Spirit
  • Week 10 – Vegetables 
  • Week 11 – Underneath
  • Week 12 – Spring
  • Week 13 – Planning
  • Week 14 – Fools
  • Week 15 – Excitement
  • Week 16 – Work
  • Week 17 – Growth
  • Week 18 – Trees
  • Week 19 – Mother
  • Week 20 – Up
  • Week 21 – Anger
  • Week 22 – Temptation
  • Week 23 – Looking In
  • Week 24 – Party
  • Week 25 – Father
  • Week 26 – Swing
  • Week 27 – Red, White & Blue
  • Week 28 – Lighting Experimentation
  • Week 29 – Family 
  • Week 30 -Summer
  • Week 31 – Time
  • Week 32 – Water
  • Week 33 – Shadows
  •  Week 34 – Peace
  • Week 35 – Defeat 
  • Week 36 – Sunset
  • Week 37 – Spice
  • Week 38 – The Kitchen
  • Week 39 – Autumn
  • Week 40- Tools
  • Week 41 – Colors
  • Week 42 – Explore
  • Week 43 – On the Shelf
  • Week 44 – Haunted/Halloween
  • Week 45 – Texture
  • Week 46 – Wind
  • Week 47 – Music
  • Week 48 – Gathering/Thanks
  • Week 49 – Beyond Reach
  • Week 50 – Smiles
  • Week 51 – Winter
  • Week 52 – Christmas/Holidays
  • Week 53 – Oldness (Monday 28th – Thursday 31st)

Want to follow along?  I’ll be posting weekly updates here on Mondays starting next Monday.  In addition, I’ll be posting to Instagram and Flickr daily using #365project2015 and #thedauntlessdreamer365.

    I love this! I love the idea of having a weekly theme rather than specific things you need to photograph each day. That makes it much more do-able for me. I’ll be following you on Insta for sure!

    I have been thinking about doing a challenge. where did you come up with your themes?

    Looks like a great challenge! I wish I could commit to a challenge everyday of the year. I can’t even do a monthly challenge! I can’t wait to see your photos!

    I just found a bunch of different past ones on the internet and picked and chose the ones I liked and made sure holiday/season related ones coincided with the dates 🙂

    Good for you!! I tried project 365 in 2013 and failed. I look forward to following your journey!

    what a wonderful idea! Can’t wait to see how your year unfolds.

    Do you just post one photo a week per theme or one photo a day per week for a theme/? you can email at rebeccabryant562@gmail if i’m not being clear

    Hey! You do one photo per day with a new theme for each week. So, for each week you’ll have 7 photos based on that theme (except the 1st and last week since they aren’t full weeks). For instance, Thursday – Sunday you’ll do one photo a day with the theme ‘Newness’ or ‘New’. Hope that helps! 🙂
