Ok now, TEN days to go.
Time to sum up some things I guess.

Today on the flight home from Paris I had quite a lot of time to think about this project, what I've achieved, what I did wrong and what I have yet to achieve.

The initial purpose of the project was to familiarize more with strobist theory, technique and to acquire control over my lights.
And that's something I feel I acquired. I'm now MUCH more confident with my lights out of the bag, I can predict how things are gonna look like before shooting, I can organize things better to the point where I don't need to bring all the modifiers / lights I have to photoshoot cause I can foresee what's gonna be used and what's not.

Something that was important for me was also to acquire the necessary skill and confidence to have people allow me to take portraits of them on short notice and in any kind of environment. Even though a lot of pictures turned out to be self portraits (mostly because i'm terrible at organizing beforehand with people) I feel and put my thumb down on that one too.

I'll talk about this in a deeper way on the last day of the project, but for now all you have to know is that today I don't feel like i'm bringing a load of unknown toys around with me, I consider them like my own personal suns and it feels damn good.

Forty done, JUST 10 to go!
