Calling All Photographers

I've decided to host my first photo project. I have no idea if anyone will participate but I'm going to give it a try. I've had this idea stirring in my head for a while now. I'll give some details here and now, and then more will follow. The specific will be posted here Saturday, September 6.
  • The project will go on for one week. It will begin Sunday, September 7 and end Saturday, September 13.
  • There will be one main theme but each of the seven days will have a different focus.
  • You'll be asked to shoot specific objects or concepts in creative ways. (That's as detailed as I'll get for now! Maybe because I haven't actually picked them yet.)
I'd love for you to participate all 7 days but don't feel obligated. I won't have rigid rules for two reasons: 1) most of you would break them and 2) I want you to be creative. I'll ask you to try to shoot specifically for the project rather than looking for past images you've taken. But again, I'm not going to hunt you down if you don't do that. You may post one photo or a series; add comment (my preference) or be wordless.

If you know others that might enjoy this pass on the news. I want everyone to have fun with this and I'm really excited to see what everyone posts. Let me know if you think you'd like to participate.

Ooh, fun!

Will you give us a bit of a heads up re the topics or is this going to be a spring it on them at the last minute type of thing? (I'll participate either way, I'm just wondering :-).)

Anna said...

I will join in for sure on the days I can....I will be out of town for some photography work!

Ahhh! THIS sounds fascinating - but alas, I leave for vacation on the 6th and will be gone 3 weeks -- with NO computer!

*scratches head* ... wonder if I can convince hubby to buy me a lap top for my birthday real quick... LOL!

Sounds like fun! Even if I don't participate it will be interesting to watch from the sidelines.

Dillo said...

Sounds good...You said something like, "Each project will have a different focus." Is that like DOF vs. close up vs......

Also, do we get some kind of advance notice or something....cuz I don't have time for immediate response cuz by the time I'm home its homework for H, then dinner, etc....

It's not like we all have teachers hours ya know... :)

Good for you, Robert :). Looks like you've got tons of interest. Saturday are "yucky" blogging days for me but I'll do my best to get here for the 4-1-1; and I KNOW I'll participate at some point though probably not for seven days.

Unless I start a photo blog...which is always "right there" in the corner of my mind ;).
