I’m so excited to tell you about my new project for this year! 18 other photographers and I are doing our project together to not only share with all of our blog readers, but to keep the project on track. We have a list of 52 “ideas or themes” that we will shoot each week of the year. And since we’re getting started a week late, the project will roll over into the first week of 2012. I will take a picture of our theme for the week — the way I interpret it and I will post it on my site. Then under my post, I will link to another photographer from the project so you can check out her interpretation of the theme. After you see hers, you will notice a different link under her picture that will then take you to the next photographer’s website. If you continue to click on the link under each picture, in the end you should see 18 other pictures and eventually make it back to my site. When I say there is some AMAZING talent in this group, I am not lying, you will definitely want to check out everyone’s pictures.
This week’s theme was “I love faces.” When I was thinking of what or who I was going to photograph, I kept thinking of faces that I love. There are some really important faces in my life that I love very much. This face would be one of them. This is my husband. Almost seven years older than when I first met him. I was a little bit surprised that he willingly let me photograph him for this project. He’s not the type of guy who would want to be the subject of photos… model for them, etc. Maybe he agreed because I explained what I was planning on doing — the dramatic light, etc. I also promised not to edit out any scars (he told me he earned those)… and keep his “ruggedness” intact 🙂
This week, travel to Chicago’s North Shore to visit the talented Angie Papalas. Her work is absolutely beautiful!
