Photography Project Ideas

What photography project ideas would you work on if you had an entire week to devote to shooting? It’s rare for most of us to get a solid chunk of time to spend on our favorite pastime. Let’s indulge in some creative thinking, and share photography ideas!

Would you shoot doors and windows? A construction site, as the project progresses? Old cars? A "day in the life of…"? Would you take a trip to your favorite destination for some travel photography? Chase your children around? Shoot reflections?

I’ve always wanted to go to a park, and set up my camera to point at a busy park bench. I’d settle in for a few hours, and then take images at fixed time intervals, say every ten minutes. It’s really an exercise in time lapse photography. I think the resulting images could make a fun photo essay. The setting would stay the same, but the subjects would change at random.

Now, I’d love to hear your ideas!
