    I just started a long term portrait project to photograph 1001 people. My plan is to use my Fuji X series cameras for the entirety of the project. Here's one of the first few I shot this weekend.

    Seriously -- nice shot, and I hope you might share some more.

    That is a seriously long term project. I wonder if you might get bored. Do you think you'll try any new techniques? Do you hope to learn anything or do you just enjoy shooting people? I look forward to seeing more.

    Hey Luke, Yea it is a very long term project I admit but go big or go home right. :). I love shooting people especially portraits and I hope to increase my portrait / people skills along the way.

    I'm wondering if I should be posting in the Portrait section?

    Lovely, soft light, nice pose, and the hair is placed well to add shape. Well done and best of luck on your project!

    Wow that is a serious project.. but with an amazing start.

    I'm interested to see how you get on, as I have been considering a 365 project, but wonder if that may prove to be a big ask.

    Just a thought. it would be interesting if there was something, one thing, that was consistent throughout the whole series. For example pose, the side quarter pose of the first model, or maybe a location or age. It would add a degree of difficulty to the shots, wouldn't make them as easy as a click, but that's what would separate your series from any other.........maybe.

    I am planning to shoot all of then with the white background and process to black and white. Maybe I should consider other things as well. Thanks for the comments.
