- Keep your flip book (or photo checklist) handy for photo ideas and for checking off things you have already photographed.
- Delete as many photos in camera as possible, keeping only the best. This will save uploading and editing time later.
- Let go of perfectionist tendencies - if you miss a day, or even a week of photos, don't sweat it, just catch up as necessary. I am viewing this project with a 'big picture' perspective. I see this project as simply documenting the intimate details of our lives in a way that my normal photography and scrapbooking doesn't do. With this in mind, it won't matter if each of my photos was taken on a unique day, or if I take seven photos in one day! In ten years...no one will care!
- Start when you can! Today felt like a great day for me to start, but if you can't get going until later, no worries! Just jump in when you can! If you are using the PSD files from the Tool Kit, simply start with the pages that correspond to your start date. The other pages from the beginning of the year will simply be used at the end of your project!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
