What Are You Going To Shoot Today?

Get out from behind the computer and shoot something you’ve been dying to shoot today. It’s easier that you’ve lead yourself to believe, it costs less than you think, and is more fun than you remember.

In fact, tell us all in the comments below what you’re going to shoot today or tomorrow or this weekend. Don’t be worried that someone’s gonna copy you, because it won’t happen. If you’re doing it right nobody CAN copy you.

I’ll tell you right now, in 10 minutes I’m going to begin shooting a music video and some stills today for Head Like A Kite.

But what are you going to do? Who’s got the huevos to tell us all? (Trust me this is for you, not somebody else. Just engaging your brain and writing the words is half the battle.)

    It's snowing in Houston so I'm getting off work at noon and going to head out to shoot some video with the 7D. Not many chances to catch snow footage here so I'm going to take the opportunity while it's here.

  2. Sean Hagwell December 4, 2009 at 9:47 am #

    Chase, this weekend I'm shooting a personal work concept that blends parkour with high fashion. Putting a twist on a sport that is dominated by hoodies, tees, jeans, and sneakers.

  3. Robin December 4, 2009 at 9:48 am #

    I'm going to buy a Lastolite Ezy-box this weekend so I'll shoot beautiful photos of my wife and dog. =)



  4. Cat Johnson December 4, 2009 at 9:48 am #

    I've been meaning to get over to the skatepark and see what my new camera can do with moving/jumping people.

  5. Paul December 4, 2009 at 9:50 am #

    I'll be shooting a Santa Claus in shrimp boots, and a couple dozen screaming kids. Not exactly what I've been dying to shoot, but I do love catching some great expressions.

  6. jr cline December 4, 2009 at 9:50 am #

    So far today I've taken shots inside a restaurant and inside the grocery store. In a bit I'm going to photograph a baby and his parents. Tomorrow I'm going to town for a little shopping and if it isn't raining, some random photography.

  7. Ryan December 4, 2009 at 9:51 am #

    Shooting a local barber tomorrow. Part of my old-time barbershop project.

  8. A.G. December 4, 2009 at 9:51 am #

    Central Park at night!

  9. OliverPoburski December 4, 2009 at 9:52 am #

    It's going to be Light, in B&W; with my camera on Manual, using my 50 f1.8.

  10. Batdorff Photography December 4, 2009 at 9:52 am #

    I'm planning on shooting some video in Chicago near the Lakeshore

  11. Greg Shields December 4, 2009 at 9:52 am #

    This weekend I'm plan to find some random small stream in the Cascade Mountain Range and shoot some low to the ground extended exposure running water shots.

  12. Jason December 4, 2009 at 9:52 am #

    Alright, I have a few military functions to shoot this weekend, but the fun stuff I am going to do is a hip hop rap group here in Atlanta! Can't wait!

  13. benoftroy December 4, 2009 at 9:53 am #

    I'm documenting my family's annual Christmas Tree selection. When we settle on a tree, my mom hugs it to make the decision final. I've got a picture of her hugging every Christmas tree we've had for the last several years.

  14. Simon Hucko December 4, 2009 at 9:53 am #

    the town that I live in has its "light up" festival tomorrow night. I'm going to try my hand at some street shooting (still have a fear of strangers), as well as capturing some of the lights and store fronts around town.

  15. Pat December 4, 2009 at 9:54 am #

    I'm shooting some of my dishes… cheezy still-life project for my dining room and it should be fun!

  16. Bekah December 4, 2009 at 9:54 am #

    I'm still figuring out how to shoot on the slopes, so on Sat I'm going to Stevens Pass with my little Cannon and will try to start working it out.

  17. Marty December 4, 2009 at 9:54 am #

    I've got a plan to shoot the snowberries outside my front door this evening, and maybe also visit the lake in the park at dawn/dusk (haven't decided which yet!) now that the endless rain in the UK appears to have stopped!

  18. bill December 4, 2009 at 9:55 am #

    I'm going to shoot portraits of my friends with 35mm film in my holga.

  19. RyanG December 4, 2009 at 9:56 am #

    It's a toss-up between asking the neighbors to turn on their x-mas lights early so I can catch some sundown shots, or my "dessert ninja" concept my wife accidentally inspired me with.

    Maybe I'll do both!

  20. Imagination Included Photography December 4, 2009 at 9:56 am #

    I am going to shoot the art opening at Chroma Gallery in Albuquerque where I show. I use a Eye-Fi card and have the photos display on my computer as a live slideshow. It is great fun and I always get some interesting shots!

  21. Joe Horvath December 4, 2009 at 9:57 am #

    This weekend we are shooting a montage/web ad for a ski resort. should be bunches of fun

  23. Jeffrey December 4, 2009 at 9:57 am #

    Took some snow shots this morning. About to shoot my poor middle finger, which I sliced with a bread knife. Will see if I can portray pain in the shot. Will then upload to The Best Camera.

  24. Jürgen December 4, 2009 at 10:00 am #

    Good question, so, I will get up early do some early morning light shots from Ou Kaapse Weg in Cape Town.

  25. Pri December 4, 2009 at 10:00 am #

  26. Don J December 4, 2009 at 10:01 am #

    I will try to find a creative angle while covering a charity football game between the local fire department and police department.

  27. Emon December 4, 2009 at 10:02 am #

    Well, I've recently started a shoot-everyday-no-matter-what project and restricted myself to the nifty fifty lens (Canon 50mm f/1.8).

    The idea is to shoot and post 1 image, at least, per day. I'm calling it NYfty50.


  28. @Denisr December 4, 2009 at 10:04 am #

    bank holiday in italy so.. I might try some HDR in Rome at dawn… if I will wake up!

  29. Brian Matiash December 4, 2009 at 10:04 am #

    I am off to Old Orchard Beach, in Maine, to do a sunrise shoot on Sunday morning. Then, mosey around Portland for some indoor brewery shooting and top it off with a sunset shoot wherever my and my two buddies find ourselves… ideally on the coast.

  30. Chiky December 4, 2009 at 10:05 am #

    This night I will shoot a engage proposal like a ‘personal paparazzi’

  31. lightwriter December 4, 2009 at 10:06 am #

    The fact that it's about to snow in Louisiana provides gobs of photo opportunities. We don't get snow down here often so I'm really looking forward to it! I'll also be shooting some portraits at a lock-in tonight.

  32. KAST December 4, 2009 at 10:07 am #

    I already spent some time shooting the low fog over downtown Seattle with the sun steaming through in spots this morning. At midnight last night I shot down on the Smith Cove tide-flats where a couple scrounging raccoons scared the hell out of me. Great times though.

  33. Kurtis December 4, 2009 at 10:07 am #

    I'm putting together a half-day shoot in the studio with a model and make-up artist to get some new stuff for my portfolio. A little boudoir style, a little pin-up style, some fun conceptual beauty stuff…

    Just a fun shoot for me to experiment with different looks and lighting, which I will definitely be using to market myself for similar work.

    It's nothing earth-shattering, by any means, but it's for me, and that's the important thing, as you know all too well. Personal work really is the most rewarding.

  34. DantePasquale December 4, 2009 at 10:07 am #

    My wife, Joanie, is meeting up with me in Murry Hill (Little Italy in Cleveland) for some Pizza at Mama Santa's. I just texted here to bring my camera. Hope she remembers! Chase, Thanks for the kick in butt motivation.

    Ciao, Danté

  35. Lester December 4, 2009 at 10:11 am #

    It's not snowing in San Antonio, but I get to shoot for our campus January 2010 Alumni Magazine. Sounds boring, but I'm excited. Hope to use my new Lastolite Ez-box.

  36. C.C. Chapman December 4, 2009 at 10:13 am #

    I'm headed up to the coast of Maine tomorrow for a little off the grid time and plenty of picture taking.

    There are rumors of snow which would make for some fun ocean shooting.

    Happy shooting everyone.

  37. Aaron December 4, 2009 at 10:13 am #

    Going to use my lunch like I do most days to shoot the urban scene. Thinking of getting my lensbaby's take on the graffiti at a local skate park. Pretty spectacular stuff there.

  38. Shirlita December 4, 2009 at 10:16 am #

    I'm going to shoot something during my workout routine. Not sure exactly what yet…so we'll see.

  39. Ryan December 4, 2009 at 10:16 am #

    Usually I read and fly, but today (and the last month) I have been on the road shooting a documentry…video and stills of human trafficking along the west coast. Tijauana, Vegas, LA, San Fran, Sacramento, PDX today and Seattle, Vancouver in the next few days…kind of a mixed project…Anyways, Gots to go! Maybe I'll stop by the studio Chase!

  40. Tyler December 4, 2009 at 10:16 am #

    Northwest winter light, trains, and inversion weather landscapes.

  41. Kurtis December 4, 2009 at 10:17 am #

    Lester: You're in San Antonio too, eh? Talk about inaccurate forecast, lol. What campus are you shooting?

  42. Juan Leonel December 4, 2009 at 10:17 am #

    So far i been taking a lot of pictures in privates partys and a few conferences!

  43. James Atkinson December 4, 2009 at 10:18 am #

    Shoot some low light in Nashville with only a 50mm prime.

  44. Edward December 4, 2009 at 10:19 am #

    Thanks for the motivation Chase! I shot some pictures of my watch dropped in water, I tried to do a motion freeze type picture, got lots of interesting bubbles too! Here's the final best shot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/45060207@N07/4158325028/ (I've taken less than 200 shots since starting photography last week!)

  45. bythewei December 4, 2009 at 10:19 am #

    Its 230 am in this part of the world.

    Currently at a vegetable wholesale market photographing the operations.

    How's that for craziness?

  46. kramon December 4, 2009 at 10:19 am #

    I'll be finishing my Nikon Festival submission. Look out!

  48. Anonymous December 4, 2009 at 10:21 am #

    I'm shooting all kinds of things in my head. All of the time. Even right now. I shoot the most amazing things when I THINK about creating images.

    When I get the spare time the only thing I'll create are excuses. Happens all of the time. Even right now.

  49. Anonymous December 4, 2009 at 10:22 am #

    Teaching a short off-camera flash seminar at work today, does that count?

  50. Jeremy December 4, 2009 at 10:22 am #

    We've got a blizzard rolling in right now. That'll give inspiration to shoot!!! Also have a high key kids shoot this afternoon.

    Kudos to spreadin the word. Just get your camera out and things will fall into place!


  51. ErinK December 4, 2009 at 10:22 am #

    I will work on some assignments and challenges: "shoes", "paper or plastic" "3 shot storyboard"

  52. Arena Creative December 4, 2009 at 10:22 am #

    Today I'm not shooting, I wish I could but I have too much other work. Tomorrow I'm going to play around in my "all new" home studio in the basement with my B800 :)

  53. Michael J Metts December 4, 2009 at 10:23 am #

    I'm going to shoot some surfaces. I love shooting two-dimensional photos of walls, doors, dumpsters, floors, etc.

    I usually get some weird looks when I do it though.

  54. Freddy December 4, 2009 at 10:23 am #

    I have a song writer friend, that's in town, and wants to do new pictures, I told her I have to cool locations here in L.A, and she loved the idea of shooting in both, so we're doing one on Saturday, and one on Sunday.
    Sunset time, with some portable power and lights, at the beach, and over looking Los Angeles.
    I'm in the process of building my portfolio, so this will be great practice and material.

  58. Willis December 4, 2009 at 10:27 am #

    I'll be shooting a portrait for Holiday cards and hopefully something for my long term photo project.

    If the photo pass comes through for certain, I am shooting Soul Asylum at First Avenue in Minneapolis. Cross your fingers for me!

  62. John B. Mueller Photography December 4, 2009 at 10:31 am #

    I was asked to photography a charity boxing match between local firemen & policemen. Something I've never done before, so time to experiment with some angles & lighting, and rapid fire shooting.

  63. Kevin December 4, 2009 at 10:31 am #

    Snow here tomorrow so get some pre snow shots tonight and then hit the same places tomorrow.

  68. Dirk Jensen December 4, 2009 at 10:34 am #

    I'm shooting some tech/security images in a data center. It's not the most inspiring location, but sometimes shooting macro can change basic product shots into interesting shape/texture/shadow compositions.

  76. Josh Webb December 4, 2009 at 10:46 am #

    More self portraits, scout locations for upcoming portrait session, maybe a long exposure of a can spinning under steam power or a timelapse of peeling an apple on an antique mechanical apple peeler.

  77. snickell December 4, 2009 at 10:48 am #

    I'm gonna head out and shot some old farm buildings and the old Port Blakely Mill site with my LensBaby Composer and then traditional lenses. This weekend I'm gonna shoot some portraits of my grandkids.

  83. stephan December 4, 2009 at 11:00 am #

    Tomorrow is the first ever installment of "food & foto", a personal project of inviting friends over and taking portrait photos in a relaxed environment. I'm honestly nervous, because I seem to be far more critical of my work when shooting people I'm close to than when working with strangers…

    Its already late evening in Helsinki (Finland), so instead of telling what I am going to shoot, I am going to tell, what I was shooting …
    Hour before sunrise, I was taking monthly photograph about local market square (one photograph each month) and in the evening (one hour after sunset) self portrait about myself doing taiji gong, which is yet another 12 month project with one photograph each month.

    I have been told that there are goats at a farm we will be visiting on Sunday. I have wanted to get in the pen with my camera and a few goats for a long time. Hopefully Sunday will be the day. If not, I'm going to find another way to get goat pics soon.

  101. Isaac Lane Koval December 4, 2009 at 11:22 am #

  109. marcusneto December 4, 2009 at 11:47 am #

    I shot a friend that stopped by. A few weeks ago I started a series called friends that stopped by and so anyone that comes to the office (we don't get many visitors) gets their picture taken.


    And my family is coming in tomorrow for portraits too…

  110. Darcey de los Reyes Photography December 4, 2009 at 11:48 am #

    Have an opening of a community show at my gallery this evening in Denver, so will shoot some pics of that event.

    Did do a project in Nov once again shooting everyday and posting on my blog in which people can not vote for the top three images. So it is possible to take a pic every day.

    I'm currently cooking up a personal photo project I want to get going, but in the meantime, I'm getting the feel of my new weapon of choice for it – Nikon D90 w/50mm 1.8!

    P.S. Thanks, Chase, for the review/campaign you (and your crew) did last year on the D90! Played the biggest part in helping me decide to make the purchase.

  117. Bits of Evidence December 4, 2009 at 11:55 am #

    Part of the fun is living in front of time… I will be shooting a simple family supper – bread and soup – for a Lent theme cover.

    Hoping this evening to get some decent night shots of a recently finished commercial development I pass on my way to and from work. Hopefully the photo I see in my head will match what's actually possible!

    Tomorrow morning the local Christmas parade.

    All with a recently-gifted-to-me Canon F-1, and my Oly C4000Z used as a spot meter for the night shots.

  123. jason December 4, 2009 at 12:09 pm #

    Probably not going to shoot anything *else* today, but earlier, I shot pictures of people who had moustaches. People who had moustaches competatively.

  126. trace December 4, 2009 at 12:16 pm #

    Yesterday I went into the woods and photographed myself jumping for a great cause to help fight Cancer, and in particular children with the illness. It felt great to contribute:


    They are looking for pictures of people simply "jumping for a cure". I love the one that was posted from Mumbai, India… so exuberant! Anyone is welcome to submit pictures and join the cause. It really feels wonderful to jump + click!

  127. adammclardy December 4, 2009 at 12:16 pm #

    Finally found my Cannon Eos disk so now I can tether to my laptop not my desktop. So I'm thinking time for some long exposure timelaps.

  151. Scott MacKenzie December 4, 2009 at 12:46 pm #

    I might shoot the Sheriff, but I do not think I will shoot the Deputy.
    Instead, I think I'll concentrate on the nasty weather we're going to have and do a "Warm-in-here, Cold-out-there" kind of thing.

  152. M December 4, 2009 at 12:48 pm #

    I'm shooting an assembly at my daughter's school. She's 'student of the month' and will be going on stage to get her award. It will be a challenge with the lighting, but I'm also to get video w/ my 7D. Do I get a 'my child is….' bumper sticker now?

  153. Joshua Tucker December 4, 2009 at 12:48 pm #

    I am embracing the chilling weather we are having over this side of the Atlantic (London) and am shooting High School field-hockey and rugby.

    Hi Chase, it's finals time at the Art Institute of Seattle, so I've got a photoshop project due next week. My idea is to select a renaissance painting to recreate, it's going to be awesome! Thanks for the inspiration, as usual!

    Hey, Chase. You're a great instigator!

    This weekend I'll be shooting my fried's brother and his girl friend, along with their new puppy. I might also be filming a campaign video for a project for the girl friend's class. It's going to fun to get out and take pictures with a purpose in mind, instead of just trying to get what I usually get. I enjoy the change

  189. domenko December 4, 2009 at 2:11 pm #

    I'm going to shoot an entry for a competition entitled "The power of light". Should be loads of fun, because I was looking forward to this shoot for a while now. ;)

  207. James Stoneley December 4, 2009 at 3:28 pm #

    On Sunday I am going to start filming my entry for the Nikon "A Day Through Your Lens" competition. It's going to be so much fun! I've managed to borrow some cool new toys to use with my 5D MKII. This self-confessed techno geek is getting very excited!

    Chase – your inspiration came just when I needed it. I was just having a convo with my girlfriend about not doing enough personal projects and shooting the stuff I'm passionate about and she said "just get out there and do it, the hardest thing is just starting and once you do it the energy will just snowball", then I wandered onto your blog and saw this – it was great timing!!

    Good luck with the music video, can't wait to see the results.

  208. -mk- December 4, 2009 at 3:28 pm #

    Colorado Cyclocross state championships in Arvada, CO tomorrow. Snow on the ground and mid-30's tomorrow will create sloppy, muddy conditions. Perfect for CX racing and photos. http://www.mitchkline.com

    I'm going to begin a new portrait project with my friends as subjects. It's gonna be REAL abstract.

  212. Phil December 4, 2009 at 3:47 pm #

    Just got the cheap and cheerful Canon 50mm f1.8 the other day, so I will be playing with that this weekend. It is raining AGAIN here in the UK though, so will probably be taking lots of photos of the kids running around harassing their mother. :-)

  213. Dave December 4, 2009 at 3:48 pm #

    The weekend I will be shooting the Installation of Officers ceremony at a nearby Masonic Lodge. Then shooting some bell ringers for the Salvation Army. I will also start researching for a Quinceañera a friend of mine asked me to shoot. Being your standard suburban cul-de-sac dwelling white guy, I have no idea what I just got myself into. I've got a few months to prepare.

  214. schauba December 4, 2009 at 3:53 pm #

    I think I will take some photos of my favorite cooking pan. The best Father's Day gift I've received.

  215. Jordan Demer December 4, 2009 at 3:56 pm #

    I'm going to somehow find a way to creatively combine a polaroid camera, the Best Camera Book, and the 20cm of snow we just got here in Edmonton, Alberta, to create an entry photo for the Best Camera photo contest.

  216. Dan Speicher December 4, 2009 at 3:57 pm #

    Nick, Thanks, that made my day. Good Luck with the PS post work.

    I played around with a Paul C. Buff Vagabond Battery and White Lightning x1600 today. Still prefer available light outside though. But it was interesting shooting with it.

    Tomorrow is just some fun personal work with film, and a few hours of downhill biking, maybe photos if i get sick of pushing my bike up the hill.

    Now if only we could get some snow in PA.

  217. otteypm December 4, 2009 at 3:57 pm #

    This weekend I will mostly be shooting rain! Some rain on the window, maybe some rain on the car bonnet. Hoping for an overcast sky with a bit of cloud detail so I can get some interesting reflections. Might also start using my 5d's video function at last…..

  218. Anonymous December 4, 2009 at 4:04 pm #

    not a dang thing. it's been a dry spell lately, but next weekend is the yearly portrait with the wife and k9. Thinking about staging it at the xmas tree farm.

    I am grateful to have the opportunity to shoot our friends Christmas Portrait. This season the theme is Holiday at the Wilson's where we will capture day in the life editorial style. No fancy set-up, just the family doing holiday activities. It's going to be great. Good luck this weekend.

  227. Villainous Vivi December 4, 2009 at 4:40 pm #

    I will be playing with the D40 this weekend, showing that even the low-end amateur cameras can do quite well with taking pictures.

    Hi Chase,
    This weekend, I'm finishing up shooting my video entry for the nikonfestival contest. I never knew shooting a video was this hectic cos you need all the actors and actresses to be on time and its very sad that the people i work with are not even half as motivated as me…Last weekend, I was forced to yell at some of my friends who were not serious about the video even tho they were Art majors in college and I am a chemistry major…Normally, I would expect them to be more interested but that was not the case…I just hope they get serious this weekend cos the video is almost done…I've put in a lot of work…its draining but I wish for the best in the end

    Thats what I'm shooting this weekend


  236. Alissa December 4, 2009 at 7:26 pm #

    I am gonna shoot trolls this weekend! Yes, trolls! Some product photog with fog, moonlight simulation, storm drains, the whole deal. They have glass eyes so I am looking forward to some crazy reflections!

    The family's Christmas portrait w/ DH inspired, starving-student light kit…the same kit that has been my favorite learning tool since 2006. One stand, one sb, one umbrella, two beautiful little girls, one remarkably stunning wife, one noble beast of a dog, and one guy who looks better when he's not in front of the lens. Happy Holidays!
