April 23rd's 365.  

So on November 1st of last year Jess and I set out to take a photo a day of ourselves for a whole year.  Lately we've been really stinking at it...
My mom, my grandma, and one of my sisters have all joined in on the 365 project.  We've all kind of fallen off the bandwagon.  So here as an attempt of reviving this... 

Below is a list of photos for the month of MAY.  So number 1 will start on May 1st.  

All photos MUST be taken BY YOU and be OF YOU.  Meaning... you have to set the shot up, no one else can be holding the camera.  The point of 365's is to learn how to use your camera better.  So for some of these you've got to bust out your tripod, or set your camera away from you on something sturdy, and use your timer for some of these shots.  You also might have to read through your manual to figure out how to adjust your shutter speeds and apertures.  GOOGLE is also your friend :)  If you don't know what something means, you can type it into google or you can ask me.  That's why I'm posting this list a few days before May 1st.  Ask questions in the comments and check back for answers.  Each photo MUST be posted online the day it's taken.  (That last rule is for me because I slack and take some photos then post like 3 weeks worth 3 weeks later.)  

Anyone can join in!  In fact, it'd be super fun if you did join in.  We've been posting them on flickr.  But you can post them on facebook if you want.  

Print this list out and put it somewhere where you're going to see it and be reminded!  Here we go :)
