Having an ongoing photography project is a fantastic way to boost your skills as a photographer. The dedication, practice and perseverance can really pay massive dividends. One of the most popular photography projects - particularly as a new year dawns - is Photography 365, whereby you take at least one photo every day for an entire year. There’s lots of other names for this kind of project, including “Photo a Day Challenge”, “Daily Photo Project” and so on.

In essence, this is a straightforward type of photography project, giving you plenty of scope to invest as little or as much time as you’re prepared to give it. There’s also lots of angles (if you can forgive the pun) you can approach a Project 365 from to tailor it exactly to your own interests. There’s very few “rules” that you have to follow - and even those that do exist you should feel free to break if it suits you better.
