Hey everyone,

I love documentary photography and am truly inspired by those who go out in the field and grab those stunning and emotion-evoking shots.

I'm thinking of starting a documentary project on my own just for my own personal use... but not too sure where to start. I was thinking of maybe doing something along the lines of "Places I like to eat" and showcase certain stores/restaurants that I've really liked and make it into a personal photobook.

Of course, then I'm thinking that I'd have to have people sign releases for being photographed (especially the photobook part... possible commercial use?), etc.

The point of all this is to just release myself into my passion and actually go and "shoot something".

Anyways, just wanted to know if anyone else here has done something similar or can recommend and/or provide some inspiration?
