100 portraits 2017: lydia

pick

As a follow-up to a project I did in 2011 called ‘100 portraits in 20 weeks‘, in which I painted or drew 100 small portraits from profile pictures of fellow bloggers who commented on my blog, (I was successful in meeting my goal and connected with many amazing people), I am commencing a second project in kind. This time I’m following my love of photography and making 100 portraits using my old Nikon FA and good old black and white film. No filters, no touch-ups, no jazzing up. I wish I could go analog all the way but I’m scanning the film to share with the world digitally. My goal is again to finish in 20 weeks, as 5 photoshoots and scanning sessions a week is enough for me. Follow along and feel free to give me some feedback!!

Portrait #1. This is my girl. Of all the photos I took of her I chose this one because she has always been my laughing girl and I feel that this shot embodies her joy of life perfectly. Keep laughing Lyds! Love you
