This story caught my eye and really inspired me, so I thought I’d pass it along…
In Wisconsin, there is a lonely, old oak tree, that Mark Hirsch passed by daily without noticing. Until he bought an iPhone 5 and decided to see what it could do.
He proceeded to shoot a photo a day of that tree, with his iPhone, for an entire year. And no two of those photos look alike.
Now Mark is no newcomer to photography, in fact, he’s an accomplished professional. But imagine the challenge it must have been to look at the same subject everyday, and take away 365 different, and well-crafted, images. The words “discipline”, “creativity”, and “talent” come to mind.
Earlier this week, Rey shared his concept of the “12 Project” project… I think Mark’s efforts fit right in. You can see the fruits of Mark’s labor at his site dedicated to this project: ThatTree.net, and at his Facebook site.
What do you think? Could you photograph the same subject for a year? How about a month? What would your subject be? Are you game??
