I had the honor in participating in one of the coolest events a group could put on, the Raleigh Challenge: Portraits event. We had 19 people in 8 different teams go out and take portraits of people we didn't know. Which was very difficult but has opened up a new avenue of photography for me. Something that I enjoy immensely now. The photos were judged last night (8/1/06) by the group with the top 20 or so going into a show at April & George Art Bar & Wine Gallery in Raleigh, NC. I believe the winners will be announced some time today (8/2/06). All of the photos, regardless if the made the show or not are going to be published in a book as well.
Check out the Raleigh Challenge: Portrait group for all the photos from this event.
