100 photoshoot project

So Keith talked about how he did 5000 drawings of faces to learn how to get better. He never noticed himself improving, but when he looked at drawing #1 and drawing #4400, he could see a huge difference.

And he talked about how it takes 10000 hours to get good at anything, including improvising.

So I think I will start a 100 photoshoot project.  It will be of people.
So far I'm going to count 2, the Ivy Lynn shoot, and the recent engagement shoot.

Next up is a Vintage Pin-up shoot with models, and another pin-up shoot for a friend!

I guess there's some variation, but the basic idea is sound. To actually become a pro in something, you need to spend a lot of time doing it, experimenting with it, whatever. 10K hours sounds about right, that's equivalent to 5 years fulltime work.
