Project 12

I never got around to starting a 365/366 project this year, but I still wanted to have some sort of photography project/challenge to do throughout the year. Which is why I'm introducing....

This is a monthly project (hence the 12) where each month my photography theme/goal will change.  For 25 days out of each month I have to take a photo or more that follows my theme.

Technically I didn't have a theme/goal for January, however I had lightroom 3 trial for the whole month and I played around with editing a lot so I'm saying that my January theme/goal was editing.

Two examples (roll over the image to see the SOOC shot)

But I do have a February theme.And it's food. I really want to get better at food photography and now that I have my 50mm lens I don't have my old excuse of bad kitchen lighting. :)

Here is what I have so far:

1/25 {2.1.12}
(I made these following this amazing recipe: Cookies and Cream Cupcakes)

2/25 {2.2.12}

And in the topic of food photography I have two photos from January to share:

I added a Project 12 button to my sidebar in case you want to join in on the fun. {And don't forget to grab my brand-new blog button also located on my sidebar}.

P.S. Thank you for all your sweet comments on my watercolor paintings.


  1. Gorgeous photos, Mary Kate! :D You're becoming a great photographer each passing day. Hope you do well in the Project 12 challenge! ;)

  2. Would you be horribly mad at me if I told you I like the sunset picture unedited better? :) It seems slightly more natural, plus, I'm just a sucker for gorgeous sunsets.


  3. yumm! you just made me hungry :)
    those beach photos are gorgeous! and I think you editd them both to perfection.
