Pay It Forward: Portraits of Other Photographers
family bed

We love hearing from our adoring faithful Photojojo fans. And what we’ve heard lately is that you kids love the photo projects, but you really love the short photo projects.

Good news, everyone! This project will only take you one day.

Here’s the plan:

  1. Find another photographer.
  2. Take a portrait of that person with whatever matters most to them, be it their family, their cat, or their first-edition copy of Molecular Quantum Mechanics.
  3. Give them a copy of their portrait, on one condition:
    they have to do the same for another photographer.

There you go: one day of shooting, and you’ve set the wheels in motion for an ongoing (possibly never-ending) project. Get everyone to post their photos online, and see how long you can keep the project rolling.

We’ve started a special forum thread just for all of you, so let’s see what you’ve got!
