1 millimeter a day.


Chris Hornbecker set himself a challenge: take a brand new photo every day. That may be easy given that he's a professional photographer, so naturally there's a catch:

Beginning with 14mm, each day I zoom the lens by 1 millimeter and force myself to use that focal length to shoot and post a photo before going to sleep that night. This will continue every day until I reach the end of the 1mm lens adjustments at 400mm.

1mm is an experiment in changing perspective. Looking at things in a restricted view, I find the light as it’s naturally falling, then use the exposure and craft to create visual intrigue out of objects we pass by every day. [...]

The rules:

1. Shoot a new photo every day.

2. Each day increase the focal length one millimeter.

3. Post this new image before going to sleep.

4. No cheating.

I'm the one that says "nay" ... there is a limit to the things you can "one photo a day..." and this one is beyond that.
It's from the same category with "take a photo of your hand each day for an year" or "take a photo of the same thing, while wearing different shoes"... or "take a photo of a leaking faucet each day, while turning the nob a mm each day"... why not just take a damn new photo each day, period.
