Initial planning

I've started thinking on how I'm going to follow the 365images plan. After my initial thoughts, at the end of my last post, I've decided to buy a P&S camera. I won't have nowhere as much control as I do with my DSLR, but the main goal at the beginning is to get into the habit of taking (at least) one photo every day. I'm sure it will be easier using a smaller camera.

I don't want to spend a lot of money so, I'm probably going for a cheap P&S camera, that allows manual controls, and has received reasonably positive reviews.

Right now the main candidate is the Canon Ixus 100 IS. I may consider others but right now this one seems to be both reasonably inexpensive, and offer reasonable quality. It also looks quite nice.

I've also started my search for professional photographers' sites, so that I can start visiting them. I've got some widely known ones, but I'm also looking to include some from my own country. If anyone reads this and wants to help my by suggesting a few names, I'll gladly include them in the list.

On second thought I might include some non-professional photographers too. After all, it's the quality of the images that should matter, and not how a person earns his living. This has already allowed me to include a few names…


I should probably start thinking on subjects to shoot. It might prove useful to have a list of subjects already prepared, so I don't have to worry about it daily. It will also help keep me on my toes :)
