I officially started my SoFoBoMo project a wee bit early, on Saturday March 29th. More specifically around about 2pm (just in case I need some extra wiggle room at the end.) Things are going well so far. I took about 600 shots this weekend (though not all SoFoBoMo related!) and have winnowed those down to about 68 finished keepers, which will be 34 pages in the final book based on my current layout plans. Even if they all don't make it into the final book I feel I've got a bit of buffer room now. Some of the stress of finding enough participants has eased.
Everyone I've asked so far has been excited about the idea and happy to participate. I feel I've got some momentum going now and the shots are starting to come together. So far 17 people have been kind enough to pose, act up and out and generally have some fun in front of my camera. I think I'm off to a good start.
