Have fun and show us your best shot illustrating “Old Buildings.”
The object of this daily, month-long photography challenge, is to pick a one square block area and photograph it daily during the month of July 2011, posting your favorite picture from each day on the club’s Facebook page, and in the club’s Gallery if you want, for others to view and critique.
Some suggestions to get your creative juices flowing are: pick a theme for the month to center your one block photos around; shoot everything from ground level; do the whole month in black and white; photograph something you can move and place in each picture, ie, a chair; or shoot the whole month using your favorite iPhone or similar camera app.
You may also do what ever creative processing you like to your photos.
We look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with and we also encourage everyone to provide positive feedback to participants photos during the month. Everyone should have a nice set of pictures at months end that you could even make a photo book or calendar from that would make a great personal Christmas gift or something similar.
New Year Long Photo Project for 2011January 1 – December 31st, 2011 Participants in this West Kentucky Photography Club 2011 year long photo project will end up with a total of 12 pictures as their final product.Everyone who participates needs to pick a scene that you can return to monthly and photograph from the same basic or exact camera position and lens. You can pick the day you want to shoot or shoot on several different days, but must pick your best picture for the month of your scene and upload it to the club’s Facebook event page and/or gallery.The picture doesn’t have to be shot on the same day every month, unless that how you decide you want to approach this assignment.We encourage everyone to explore the scene you choose in different weather, seasons, events, ect. You may also include people as long as your camera position and lens selection stays the same during the year long photographic project. Be creative!After you shoot your first picture we suggest printing that picture and use it as a reference for your future photos. You could also take pictures, notes, ect on how your camera is setup so you can easily replicate your position monthly. If possible you could even mark your camera’s tripod leg positions with a spot of paint or put a small stick, stone, nail, ect. into the ground to mark your position.The idea is to have a collection of 12 photographs that could be made into your own calendar that shows a single scene with the changing elements, weather, ect. which could make a nice Christmas gift for family and friends next year.If you have any questions, comments, thoughts or suggestions please post them on the club’s Facebook event page or email Jim Pearson at firstname.lastname@example.orgClubs Facebook Event Site – Clubs Online Gallery
