A Personal Project & Challenge 50 Portraits in Fifty Days

The only way to get really good at anything is to practise right! Photography is something that a photographer should always be trying to improve and develop and as portrait photography will be a big part of what I aim to be doing, I thought I would set my self a real challenge and see if i can photograph 50 people in fifty days starting from Sunday the 12th of January 2014 and ending on Sunday March the 2nd 2014. If the people who I ask donít take me up on my offer, I will have to go into town and ask complete strangers. They will no doubt think that I am either mad, or trying to con them. I hope that people will at least talk to me, even if they donít want a portrait taken

You can read about my 50 Portraits In Fifty Days, The Starting Point and see some of the images i have taken

Now that is a challenge! I'm pretty sure I could never pull off something like that.

Good luck!

("Welcomes and introductions" might be a strange place to post this, though?)

I must be stupid, I did not realise this would be posted to the welcome and introductions area though, not really sure how this happened? Still the idea was to let people know about the project and challenge.. Sunday the 12th of Jan 2014 was the first day, but i really got a lot out of it and am looking forward to the next session later on this week.

Is that not cheating... by building up a reserve stock? it's supposed to be one a day.
