When it comes to your photography, there is nothing more satisfying and frustrating as running a photography project. These projects can be big, small, span years or months. You can publish them in a book, hold a gallery show, or just stick them online. Thankfully you can easily run your photo project without having any formal project management training (although even a little bit of reading on the matter is helpful). Completing such a project will improve not only your photography skills but also your organisation skills. In this article, I will walk you through how I approach a photography project.

Well, looks who’s back! It’s the FP4Party! This time around I have no outstanding projects so unlike in the final FP4Party I can actually work hard on this one, unlike the last time I gave a rather lack-lustre performance. I sat down early and planned out my week, collecting five ideas of where to shoot and what I wanted to shoot with. The film, of course, a favourite of mine, Ilford FP4+. I came up with one roll of 35mm, three rolls of 120 and a box of 4×5. Now in the past, I’ve usually stuck to one day of shooting for these parties. ButRead More →

Keeping it nice and simple for this week, a simple white clapboard church along my way too and from work. The Church of Christ in Omagh, Ontario is one of the oldest churches in the area, and has always caught my eye, mostly for it’s simplicity.

Remember the Tree from all the way back from Week 5? Well I said it would be back, and here it is! It’s actually not as dead as I first thought. While I originally planned on shooting it later that evening to get the same shot as I did before, but as I drove past it in the morning the sun was just casting through the branches, having the camera with me, I pulled over and got the shot made up just right. Sure many would frown upon shooting with the sun infront, but it gave me what I was looking for. Modified Anniversary SpeedRead More →

For anyone who is a fan of the Film Photography Podcast is probably aware of a fantastic photographer by the name of Jim Austin, or Jimages. Well week 5 is probably because of Jim, and his philosophy of slow photography. See, I took this photo before I lugged out the camera. I came across this scene the day prior, stopped the car got out an admired it, but didn’t take the photo then. I waited, a good 24 hours before actually dragged the camera out. It took me that long to build the final picture in my head. And while that is taking a riskRead More →
