September 18th, 2014 … The One Shot Photo Project Begins … Come One, Come All

09-14-0163-Edit

I’m making a challenge to myself and youse all shooters. The one shot photo project is just what it sounds like. One photo per shoot. Not one a day, a week, a month or a year. Simply put, one shot for every shoot you do. It’s up to you to decide how many photos you make CasinoinUS on a shoot but only one can be submitted per shoot. You don’t have to do this, you know it and I know it. This is something I learned from Ding McNulty and it has proved to make me focus on my work with a clear and clean vision. The thing is, it helps me to really commit to my images because I can only choose 1. I slowed down a lot back in the 70’s thru all my film decades. Now with digital, it’s like overabundance is par for the course.

So, if your interested, submit a photo under the One Per Shoot Project, send it to me by email (streetshooter.us@gmail.com) along with a statement about the photo and the experience of making it. A paragraph or so is cool. You can do this more than once soooo be awake and alert and find that ONE SHOT.

09-14-0162-EditIf  your up to doing this, then here’s what will happen. You will be put on the Inspired Eye Blog and have a chance of getting into the Inspired Eye Magazine.

The idea behind this is to create energy to work but not to have to make it a burden. This will actually tune your vision and help to eliminate boredom and loss of direction. If you make a good effort doing this, you will find a new strength in your work and vision.

I hope that youse will partake in this project as I am committed to doing it again, and again.. and again……

  1. Sounds like a great idea Don and hopefully will provide inspiration to myself and others to get out there and put some real thought into what we are shooting. Thanks for inviting us to join you on this adventure!

    1. Dave, of course. We like to do what we can for the community and this is the start of an interesting series. Seeya out there pal….don

    1. Dave, yes, a mess but I am getting thru the BS. Lost SS card, bank card, iPhone etc…….
      a mess but I’m still standing……

      1. Hi Don,
        I think you are right. I remember when I did press work in the early sixties everyone used a Rollie then, no problems with only twelve exposures. Not many jobs required a film change. I wonder how many shots the press photographers take now, their flash units seem to be running continually, hundreds surely.
        All good stuff

        1. John, absolutely right. When I shot for papers here in Philly, we didn’t use much film but what we did use was all good. The real job back then was editing. Funny, that’s the real job now too….
