(An excerpt from my original FaceBook post on 1 January 2012)
In order for me to grow as a photographer and to develop my portrait skills, I've decided to commit to a 1 year long project. My "portrait project 365" will require a significant mental commitment on my part in that I need to diligently shoot at least one meaningful portrait a day...preferably without using the same subject more than once a month. Shooting a portrait a day is going to be pretty difficult once my leave ends and i start my day job again (leave home at 7am get home at 7pm), add to that the fact that the only two "willing" models I have at my disposal (before and after work) are my wife and daughter...I'm sure you can appreciate the daunting nature of this challenge I've set for myself.
"edit" 18 Jan 2012 - it has been brought to my attention that 2012 is in fact a leap year and therefore has 366 days, not 365... so my project has now been aptly renamed "Portrait Project 366" :)
