What is a photography project?
A photography project is a long-term commitment and requires a great deal of time, effort and dedication. Many photographers choose to pursue this type of work in order to expand their skill set and creativity.
The best photography projects are challenging and wildly interesting. They speak to you, encourage you to explore your creative limits and motivate you to get out there and shoot!
Creating an idea for a photo project is a process that can take some time. However, it’s always worth trying to find something that interests you and will help you grow as a photographer.
Some of the best photography projects have a theme or story behind them. For example, a photo project inspired by a movie can create a powerful series of photos that tell a story. Another great photography theme is music.
Think of a song you enjoy and create a series of photos that illustrate the lyrics or feel of that particular track. You might also want to photograph the subjects that begin with each letter of the alphabet, or go on a spontaneous photo journey and try to capture a random collection of items beginning with each of the letters in the alphabet.
Once you have a theme for your photography project, set yourself a brief that describes what you want to achieve and how the images will be used. This will help you create a coherent, consistent style that’s aligned with the goal of your project.
