Project 1825, Day 1

Today marks the first day of my renewed Project 1825, my perhaps overly ambitious goal of making a single photograph or piece of art every day for 1,825 days, or approximately five years. I hope, during that time, to acquire enough experience and knowledge and practice to become a professional photographer/artist. With the launch of this project (for the second time) I have decided to do break up the entire project into smaller projects, typically lasting one week, or six days consisting of Monday through Saturday, giving me Sunday to take a break and recharge my imaginative batteries, as well as do things like chores around the house, etc. The very first mini-project, starting today, is self portraits, the first of which can be seen here:

Yes, my eyes are that blue. This simple portrait took me quite awhile to accomplish. Difficulties encountered included having limited light (as usual) and acquiring focus. I found it very difficult to try to estimate exactly where my eye was going to be to get it into focus. Invariably in every shot my face was at a slightly different point than before, so focus was always a bit off, considering I shot wide open at f2.8. This was the closest I managed to get after an hour or so of taking shot after shot. Eventually I probably would have managed to get it perfect but I ran out of patience. Tech info:

0.6 sec, 70mm f2.8 at ISO 100. Processed in Photoshop CS6, 3 layers, 1 b/w with low clarity, 1 b/w with high clarity, 1 color.
