Daily Dozen – Fun Faced Fellows

I was out today and ran really late in terms of putting today’s set together. A lot of people offered to help come up with the theme for the day but almost everything they suggested was something I’ve done in the past. It’s tough. I decided to look at men with fun faces and to limit myself to the more recent set of 1000faces. I hope you’ll enjoy these 12 men who look like they’re having fun.

Daily Dozen – Enjoy Bill Joy!

Over the years – by a path I can’t explain – I’ve had the opportunity to become involved with MIT. It’s one of my favorite places for a whole lot of reasons. One aspect of my involvement is as a photographer for various events. The Communications Forum, the Futures of Entertainment, Media in Transition, Unbound and emTech are some of them and they’ve all be awesome. Bill Joy, one of the co-founders of Sun Microsystems and now a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, was one of the speakers at emTech 11. He’s heavily into energy now and had a great on-stage chat with Jason Pontin of the Technology Review. Here are some of my photos from that session. enJoy them. hahahahahahaha!

Daily Dozen – A Few Favorite Female Faces #1

Most days I try to be totally objective with the Daily Dozen: women wearing red or men outdoors in the daylight or people singing. Today I had another totally objective set in mind. It was going to feature men wearing really worn hats. I couldn’t find 12 though so had to shelve the idea. While I was looking I decided to throw objectivity to the wind and select photographs to 12 women that I liked. I don’t know any of the women in these pictures, I decided that if they were of people I knew it might influence how I felt about them. I also decided to limit my pool to the first 1000faces. Frankly, the early photographs in the project aren’t that good in some respects. I love them but I was just getting started.

One of the things that always amazes me about this project is how often I misjudge what people will like. What I mean is this: Often I’ll take and process a photo and think to myself, “wow, this one is great, people are going to love it” but then when I post it will get very few views. Other times I’ll take a photo and not really give it much thought and it will turn out to be super popular. Today, you can see some of the photos that I like. I don’t know what I like about any of these pictures but I do. Maybe you will too.

Daily Dozen – Men I’ve Worked with Over the Years

The other day I did a set of women I worked with, today I decided to turn things around and look at some of the men I’ve worked with over the years. As I mentioned in the other set, my work has meant most of my colleagues have been men and my interest in photographing faces is a fairly new phenomenon so the pool of images available to me is limited. That said, I was easily able to find 12 photographs. As I think about it, I do have a history of photography faces that predates this project. Digging up and scanning some of those photos might be a project for some weekend this summer. In any case, here are 12 men I’ve worked with over the years.

Daily Dozen – Women with their hair to one side

Today I was looking at photos and the first one my eyes fell upon was of a woman with her hair pulled to one side. That became today’s theme. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped to find a dozen photos to fill the theme. With some hard work I was able to come up with 12 faces and I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Daily Dozen – Women I’ve Worked With

Two days without Daily Dozen sets. That’s not good. Yesterday I considered taking a hiatus but I like doing this too much to stop. What I need to do is prep sets so that when I am slammed I can still post. Some time I’ll try to do that. The thing is this is a pretty organic project. I like sitting down in the mornings to think about what I should include and so doing a batch at once feels unnatural.

When I started thinking about what to do today I was going to do men I’ve worked with; but then I realize that the last set was also of men and decided to go with women I’ve worked with. Being in PR means most of my colleagues over the years have been women so there were plenty of faces to choose from. I’ve been working for more than 20 years now but only photographing faces since 2008 so this is a pretty incomplete set. Of course even if I had taken one per year I’d have too many for a set so I suppose it all works out. There are a few photos from before 2008. It’s not as though I never took pictures, just not so many and few of faces. I hope you enjoy today’s faces. I liked (and in some cases currently like) working with these people.

Daily Dozen – Men with round heads/faces

For whatever reason, when I sat down this morning to put together the Daily Dozen, men with round head/faces popped into my head. I hadn’t even opened my laptop or given it any thought. Sometimes it happens. I’ve done two sets based on round – men with round chins and people wearing round glasses. One of the tricky parts in doing round heads/faces is not simply using every bald face I have. While it’s true bald heads do make ones head/face look rounder it isn’t the only thing that can convey that impression. Sometimes it is the cheeks and chin together, sometimes the hairline. Sure, today’s set has plenty of bald fellows but it has plenty of other kinds of faces too. Hope you enjoy them all.
