OCOLOY: A One Camera, One Lens, One Year Project

With 2016 just around the corner, many photographers will be dusting off the cameras they've been neglecting and making New Year's resolutions in an attempt to rekindle their creativity. If you're looking for ideas and inspiration, here's a good one: do a OCOLOY project. It requires using just One Camera and One Lens for One Year.

Give It 100 Helps You Keep Your Resolution Makes You Donate $1 for Every Missed Day

You're probably already familiar with Karen Cheng (better known as "that one girl who learned to dance in a year and made an awesome video of it") and her motivational startup Give it 100 that is all about helping you achieve your goals by having you upload a video of your progress every day for 100 days and beyond.

It's already a phenomenal way to set a goal and stick to it -- if you miss a day it's obvious to everyone following you -- but Cheng and partner Finbarr Taylor have come up with something special for New Year's. They've set up a win-win challenge that lets you put your money where your mouth is when it comes to your New Year's resolutions.
