Daily Dozen – Ladies in Red

I was kind of surprised to see I hadn’t already done a set of women in red but it doesn’t seem like I have. It gets tough over time to remember all of the Daily Dozen sets. Pintrist has been really helpful. I can see all of the sets and figure out which ones I either haven’t done or haven’t done in a while. At some point I know I will repeat themes but I’m trying to make sure I don’t reuse the same photos too often. It gets tricky. I do have an evolving system that’s working pretty well. Going back and doing it retroactively is pretty time-consuming though. Such is life.

As I was saying, it was a bit odd that I hadn’t done a set of women in red. There are sets of women with red lipstick, men in red shirts, men with red hair and women with red hair. It’s a good color and I’m glad I’ve finally posted it. Enjoy.

Daily Dozen – Red-Headed Men

A few weeks ago I did a set of red-haired women. I also did a set of men wearing red. Today I sent these two ideas racing toward each other and have a set of men with red hair. Red comes in so many tones. A few of these fellows have really bright reds and oranges while others have hair that’s almost blonde. I’m pretty flexible though and included them all. I hope you enjoy them!

Daily Dozen – Red, She Said

Asking for themes is hit or miss. Every now and then someone will make a suggestion but most of the time I come up with them myself. Often when someone sends a suggestion it’s something I’ve done recently. When my colleague Sam suggested red hair I was pretty sure I’d already done a set but looking back I see that isn’t the case. Sam’s a redhead herself but somehow I’ve not posted a photo of her to the 1000faces project.

Today’s set includes 12 women with red hair. I’ve included three kinds of red hair. There are women with naturally red hair, women with dyed red hair (or at least enhanced) and women who’s hair appears red through some trick of lighting. When I started looking through my photos I was amazed by how many women have red hair. This was a tough set to put together. Without even trying I quickly had a batch of 20 and cutting eight was not easy.

Let me know if you have a theme you’d like to see and I’ll try to put it together. Themes don’t need to be physical characteristics, they have be about locations, moods, ideas, whatever.

Daily Dozen – My Pal Karyn

One of the best things about 1000faces is that I’ve met a TON of people. Most of the time I see someone, ask for their photo, explain the project and go on my merry way. Some of the time I end up hearing from the people I photograph. And once in a while someone I photograph goes on to become a friend. That’s what happened with Karyn. The first time I took her photograph was more than three years ago. Over time we became friends. For a few years we went to the Bone every Wednesday and always had fun. Then in August Karyn moved to Omaha to work on her PhD. Good for her but sad. She’s coming back to Boston for a visit tomorrow so I thought it was a good time to do a Daily Dozen of her photographs.
