As one year draws to an end and another begins, everyone looks to set goals for the next year. For some the goal is to lose weight or get fit; for others it’s to start a new job or career. For many photographers, the way to get obsessed and stay obsessed about their craft is through challenging themselves to take a photo a day for an entire year.
Some will take the photos as a way to journal their life, and there are several apps out there that help organize your photos for each day of the 365 challenge, like Photo 365 Everyday Photo Calendar for Your Life (long names are a staple for this type of app).
But some want a challenge. They want their 365 project to lead them to new ideas, new ways of looking at the world. They want it to spark their creativity and want to use it as a learning experience. For these people mere journaling, while a worthy project that gets you to use your camera, just isn’t enough.
Noel Chenier has developed a series of apps called Learn Photo365, some free and some paid, that take on the daunting task of teaching you something new while challenging you. The version I am showing today is the paid iPhone version. This is purported to be for SLR users as well as smartphone photographers, even though the splash screen shown below clearly states “iPhotography”.
