    Project 365!

    Hi all, i decided to give the 365 project a go that flikr people been doing and thought i will post it here aswell. No for those who dosnt know, Project 365 is where i take a photo everyday for a year, and there are two different types, one is where it is selfies, and one with whatever. I am thinking about doing the selfies, but who knows so this is what ever goes!! And unsure if i will stick with this or not, but we will see.

    Anyways here is Day 1 of the project:

    1/365: Shave and a haircut...

    Project 365!
    1/365: Shave and a hair cut... by AllenLennon, on Flickr

    The idea behind this photo is because i purchased a hair grooming kit to try it myself(the hair shaver thingy), i didnt do to bad i must admit, but the back was the hardest. My original idea was to just shave back the middle, but it didnt work because of a few reasons, 1) hair wasnt long enough to stand out and 2) i was a bit in experience. So instead of going through setting up the lights before i went to cut my hair, i decided to take a photo anyways.

    Cheers

    Good luck with Project 365 Allen, I'm sure once you get your hands on your new 6D you won't want to put it down so a photo a day might not be that hard and if anyone on this forum can manage 365 selfies it's you
    Cheers, Greg

    Hi Allen,

    I have always admired your creativity with your 'selfies', this one is no exception - it made me smile. although don't mistake that for not my not appreciating the effort that went into focus, exposure, lighting and crop.

    That is a tough challenge you have set yourself though, but I wish you well with it.

    Cheers,

    Okay Allen! This is absolutely hilarious! I darn near fell out of my chair!

    Very well done! Good lighting, excellent concept! Most mornings I don’t know whether to go ahead and shave my ugly face or just slit my throat and have done with it!

    Very cool man! Looking forward to more of your creative genious!

    Thanks for making my day!

    If you are going to keep shooting these Allen, I'm thinking a parachute would be in order!

    Yes you're grasping at straws there Allen
    Sorry couldn't resist that one. I have tried that with beer in my younger days, didn't end well
    Sent you a pm that might help.
    Cheers, Greg
