Profile picture update Challenge

I thought it would be good for us to update our profile pictures. I would like to propose that everyone post a proper portrait not just a snapshot and that it not be a self portrait. Instead it should be a image taken by another member of the group. Perhaps they could all be on a black background with whatever lighting
chosen by the photographer. This will give us all an opportunity to be on both sides of the camera and the final images have a specific purpose. We could organise a meetup for this or we can work on this as challenge.

I would really like everyone in the group to participate in this one.

      The meetup that went with this was last week however it is still a challenge and you should try to do it if you can.

    I am all for this but how do we organize this? I will be on vacation from March 24 to April 6. How do we link up with another member? How do we organize or know what a suitable background is?

      To contact another member simply click on their name and then find the send email link. A black background, this can be achieved by hanging a black fabric or paper sheet behind subject or by controlling your flash and moving the subject away from any walls. You have 21 more days to do this before you leave on vacation. I will try to post a meetup before the end of the month.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
