I'm going to do a photo project this year of the nearby vernal marsh
, which is a preserve roughly 1/4 mi across. I plan to go once a month for the whole year. There are plenty of photography subjects, but I'm hoping to start with some ideas for specific shots and studies to continue throughout the year. This is a just-for-fun, so anything goes...it doesn't even have to be a photo, I am thinking I'd like to make a little multi-media presentation at the end of the year. Maybe the Nature Center will let me donate it...
Things I've thought of so far:
--Take a panoramic photo from the same spot every month to show the overall changing seasons
--Take a shot of the same tree every time down by the water to show the changing water level (disappears entirely late summer)
--Record the bird sounds or a little video
--Some type of catalog of the local fauna? Although I don't know how comprehensive it would be in a couple hours a month...
Any other suggestions or resources? Thanks!
