First of all...my thanks to all of you for backing Detroit Portraits as well as sharing this project within your networks. Yesterday morning we were only 20% funded and to be honest I was beginning to doubt whether this thing could be pulled off...but just 36 hours later we now stand at 104% funded with 131 backers! I'm excited beyond words.
I've been getting 2 consistent questions since we became fully funded just 4 hours ago.
What will you do with the additional funds raised over your goal of $6500?
Kickstarter stops taking pledges at 4:15 Saturday afternoon, December 31. I'm not expecting anything too substantial but I've decided to set aside any additional funds I receive towards a potential future small book project consisting of the Detroit Portraits.
I say "potential" right now only because at the moment all I care to focus on is getting to work right away in Detroit and taking the best portraits I can for the next couple of months. If I do that well then other opportunities will arise and I'll deal with that much later in the year. I believe that first things need to come first.
When will you start shooting Detroit Portraits?
I've already scheduled a full day of shoots on Thursday, January 5 and will return as often as I can in January. I can't wait!
