Last year I wanted to start a portrait-a-week challenge for myself. Because of lazyness, this didn't really work.

But:

Since I'm working with models and for assignments more often now, I want to do this for 2008. Every week one portrait. No other rules.

Who feels like joining me?

I would, but I have already promised myself I would do the SP a month thing and in Feb, an SP a day (plus the great '08 motivational debate) LOL It's a good idea though and I hope you make it through the year!! I'll be interested to see what comes out of you :)

I was excited about the SP-challenge, but one photo each day is not gonna work for me... so I decided to give this PAW-challenge a try.

No problems though that you won't participate, have fun with the other challenges!!

I did a macro picture-a-week this year and am considering a portrait one for 2008. I don't know if I will have time though. Taking a macro every week is easier under time constraints because you can just dump something on your desk and take a photo of it, for portraits I will need to get hold of a person to photograph.

No worries.

If you want to join, join!
If not, then, well, I'll be on my own for now, haha!

Cool! Since Larus won't be shooting PAW for 08' I wouldn't have had a PAW gallery to look forward to each week. Hanneke, very much looking forward to your shots.

aaaw that's sweet! Not that I can compete with Larus's talent, but I'll try! ;)

I would love to join you. I had been thinking of doing this as well. That is 52 portraits....yikes. I think I can manage that. However, it may be the same model for some of the portraits. I look forward to this challenge with you. Thanks.

Ya know, its funny, you said you wanted to do a portrait-a-week thing, but ended up being too lazy.

It reminds me, that I wanted to do a image-of-the-week on one of my websites. More often then not for 3 years I missed the image, or had to go back through images to pick one and post it late or whatever. It was extremely difficult to keep yup with.

Then, I challenged myself, and 366 days later I had 366 self portraits.

Not sure what it means... but umm yeah.

If I do decide to do this I might impose two rules upon myself to make it even more challenging, a different person each week and to get a signed model release from each subject.
