I'm overwhelmed at the response to this project, both here and on instagram. Thanks so much for joining in with such enthusiasm; it's good to know that you're inspired and motivated.
I noticed a few people mentioned that they started strong in 2014 and, sometime throughout the year, life got in the way and they left the project by the wayside. I think the key to seeing this project through to 52/52 is to pick up the camera and take a photo. We can get so caught up in the busyness of life and the perfection of the portrait that often, these two things only become hindrances. Treat Sunday as your deadline and, even if you aren't entirely happy with the photo you have captured (sometimes life only gives us time for five shots in a week), post it anyway. I promise that in retrospect, you will value that photo just as much as the next.
My favourite portraits of the week: Anya deep in thought / a little girl from Iceland, rugged up and absolutely joyful / ringlets and a smirk; I love a good b+w portrait.
And for those of you who asked for a button to use on the sidebar, here are some simple yet beautiful options created by the very talented, Oana Befort (make sure you check out her blog, her world is a beautiful one). To add them onto your sidebar, simply save images as and paste onto your blog - you can either link back to me or link to your 52 photos.
Pop back this afternoon for my first photography post. I'll be answering some of the questions that were asked last week and addressing the first (perhaps most important) step to shooting manual on your DSLR.
If you want to link to a photo on your instagram account, follow these steps. Otherwise, simply add your blog details:
