I am planning on doing a 30 day SPSC (self portrait side challenge) starting in May. Who wants to join me?

The catch is it is 30 days of different lighting styles with the setup in the note. Studio and natural light and a mix, whatever you can find. I'd start in April but with vacation and whatnot I figure May is a better option and that will give everyone plenty of notice if they are interested.

Who's in:

lol. Yeah well I think the voters are getting tired of seeing me in the challenges so I will be taking a break from entering self portraits for challenges for awhile but I enjoy doing them and I enjoy trying out different lighting. I was going to just do this on my own and post on facebook but thought I'd see if anyone here wanted to do it as a sc.

I'll give it a shot. I've been working through the strobist website so this will give me a chance force me to work on what I have been trying to learn
03/27/2012 10:11:43 AM · #11
I'll try! Not sure I'll be able to do all the days though.

For $5, you could just get a one month membership to take advantage of a portfolio to receive comments.

...on the other hand, it might be worth the entertainment value for me to buy you a month. ;-)

All are welcome here :) Like Art said you can get a 1 month membership and will likely receive more feedback/comments that way but no reason you can't link to a public facebook album, flikr page or 500px. If you do choose to link it would be best to do it so that others can easily view and don't have to sign in to anything.

I'd play if I had any lights. Maybe natural light outdoors, south facing window light, north facing window, east, west, then what? Fluorescent, incandescent, led flashlight, candle, ummmm.... car headlights, bang.

I am going to be doing a mix of lights, try something different each time. Light is light :)

Okay, but I might get lazy.
03/29/2012 07:40:27 PM · #21
I gotta think of a theme...

Anything you want, but there better be at least one "cartwheel in the mall" shot. ;-)

Only one? Almost got sent to jail at JFK Airport for a cartwheel urge. Haha! I decided I won't do one because they where glaring at us for smiling. :D This will be like the time I stood next to the road on a bar chair taking a picture of a traffic light for an E (alphabet in nature..) People's reactions just killed me!
