So, I have lately been feeling stagnant in my photography. I am not pursuing it like I used to. Yes, I am going on trips and taking pictures of beautiful landscapes and that is a blast, but there has been nothing consistent or new for a long while now.
After brainstorming on this for the past few weeks, I have come to a conclusion....
Starting January 1st, 2017, I am going to schedule one ''model" per week for 52 weeks straight. This means that, by the end of 2017, I am going to have a new portfolio of portraits that are going to show my best and most current work.
I am not going to limit myself to any other constraints than simply the fact that I am going to make a new portfolio quality portrait every week with a new "model".
Why do I keep putting quotations around the work "model"? That is because the subject of my picture does not need to identify themselves AS a model. They may be an aspiring or established model, or they may be a coworker, a random person on the street, a dog, my son....the list goes on. The only stipulation I am making here is the fact that the subject must know that they are being photographed. I don't really want voyeuristic photos of people on the street to be a part of this. (although I am sure I will still take and post those photos on my social media accounts)
Whew, that is a bunch of text. Let's break it up a little bit with this beautiful portrait I took of Nola.
