I'm itching for another 30-day challenge - I would like to shoot only portraits. They could be self-portraits, portraits of kids, pets, candids and posed,.... anything portrait related.

All you have to do is play along and have fun. Shoot a portrait every day, post it either here on DPC or in a blog if you like. If you want to use a blog, give me the address and I'll add it to the original post in this thread.
That's it.
Its all fun, nothing too serious. If you miss a day, catch up later. If you give up, nobody will laugh at you. If you find vast improvements in your portrait skills by the end of 30 days.... smile and be glad. :D

I propose we begin April 1st (April Fools Day). Who would like to join?

I am with you as long as we don't have to do self-portraits....you have too much of an advantage there!

Excellent! I'm rather tired of shooting me that's why I suggested the challenge to be ALL portraits. More variety that way too. :)

Could it be the "30 every-other-day Portrait Challenge" ;)

You could certainly participate as your schedule allows! :D
03/25/2007 11:01:13 AM · #6
Very cool... I'm trying to get back into my blog (did some clean up and trying to figure what to blog about) pawpad and this would give me something to do for 30 days. Still got that one IT Selfport to pull off.
03/25/2007 11:07:53 PM · #7
Who else is in? We have 5 days for sign-ups. I can't wait, been a while since I felt driven to shoot every day.
03/25/2007 11:31:19 PM · #8
DANGIT!!! I already promised Shanny I would participate in the 30 days of MaGic challenge....

I really love doing portraits too....

hmmmmmmmmm I think I have a decision to make :-/

I'll let you know....

You're good, you could do both! :D
03/26/2007 12:15:42 AM · #10
OKOK :)

I was wanting to take some time off from score-type challenges anyway ;)

I'm with you ;)
03/26/2007 12:34:44 AM · #11
Ok, I will regret it but I'm in. I bet I won't finish, maybe I am in a challenge called "30-Day incomplete challenges" or something like that. But hey I have to put that new battery grip to good use ;)
03/26/2007 08:33:56 AM · #12
Horray. Added you guys to the list. :)
03/26/2007 08:57:05 AM · #13
ugh. I wish i could...I need the practice. BUT, I was cast in a theatre production, and literally will be going nonstop everyday from 7am - 11pm. That leaves no time for photography for the next few weeks. :(
03/26/2007 09:39:42 AM · #14
Congrats on getting the role, Magen. If you get a chance to shoot at all, we'd love to have you join. :)
03/26/2007 09:41:06 AM · #15
Count me in - you'll be so sick of seeing my family by the end of April.

I've never done a 30-day challenge before though, someone's got to brief me on what I need to do.

Thanks TCGuru for pointing me in this direction.

I'll try to join in, my boyfriend starts racing April 1st, so my weekend's will be busy, but maybe it will result in some unique portraits....
Sign me up! :)
03/26/2007 10:48:17 AM · #19
I am very bad at keeping up with these 30 day/a year challenges, but I am in!! Will try my best!
03/26/2007 11:06:18 AM · #20
I am so tempted! I love doing portraits, even tho they would all have to be kind of candid, outside kinds of portraits. . . but. . .hmmmm. . . .okay. Count me in.

03/26/2007 11:44:00 AM · #21
