    For this challenge, post a new portrait photo each day from a different category. State the primary category you’re putting your portrait in. Try to shoot a different type of portrait for each post. Choose from any of these types of portraits or add your own if I’ve missed a style that you like!

    Traditional
    Lifestyle
    Environmental
    Natural Light
    Child
    Abstract
    Studio
    Candid
    Street
    Fashion
    Black and White
    Formal
    High Key
    Framed
    Action/Sports
    Self
    Shadow
    Sidelight
    And of course...Pet

    Remember, try to post only new photos that you’ve taken for this challenge. Posting old photos from your catalogue is strongly discouraged. The point is to get people out shooting and trying new things. Get out of your comfort zone. I know finding “models” can be difficult for a lot of us but that’s part of the challenge. Be creative. Bribe your kids or your spouse/SO, sneak a shot of a stranger, offer a free headshot to a friend, take that portrait of your parents that you’ve been meaning to take, offer a TFP shoot, bring your camera to that Halloween party or dinner with friends, try out that portrait mode on your new iPhone...

    Who’s in? Post the photos in this thread.

    I've got some new lighting modifiers coming in today, so I think I'm game for this one!

    I'll probably have to sit this one out unless you want to send Princess south for a bit.

    edit: I think I know what I can do; we'll see how the first one goes.

    I found a model and her name is Marshmallow.
    I guess this one would be traditional. Possibly studio, but I don't have one. I really need to iron that backdrop.

    Nice creativity. I might have to break out the Big Papi bobble head.
