I always say that I am going to do my best to update AF more often but I always fail miserably at doing so. This has forced me to take drastic measures.

To kick-start more regular updates I am starting a new project in 2012. I don't have a name for it but I do have a plan. Every day, while on assignment, I am going to photograph something unrelated to assignment. I may shoot multiple photos each day if I have a lot of stories and I may just shoot one photo. Who knows what will happen? But I will shoot at least one every day. At the end of each week I will post my five favorite photos with a blurb.

Here's my example to start off:

Jan. 17: While photographing an interview with John Vanderheiden in Lockeford, this cowboy stood to my left staring out the window.

Hopefully having a goal will keep me on track and make AF a little more enjoyable. Now if life can just send me something interesting everyday.
