To spark creativity, to hone my photography skills and to learn new ones, in 2014 I will be tackling a 52 week personal project called "Keefer 52". Each week, I am planning to photograph my favorite (but often reluctant) subject-Keefer. Keefer is our 5, almost 6 year old energy filled all All-American boy. Over the course of the next year, I will force myself to come up with weekly photographic "assignments" using all kinds of concepts and techniques. Keefer is tough to get in front of the camera, however, he does take payment in the form of Legos. This will be a huge test of my patience, discipline, and ability to dig deep for creative ideas.
The photo above is a a gift Keefer and I created as a Mother's Day gift this past year. It's based on the 80's movie Say Anything. To help announce Keefer 52, here is a little video clip of how the photo came together.
