Just taking this idea from 'The Photo Forum'.

Photo challenges (http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=46)

wondering what everyone might think about weekly/monthly picture challenges?

If a few people agree, I'm into it and I'll play along too. Monthly might be best to start though.

Anyone else interested?

Thx for the idea!

i agree with the monthly too - weekly ones would come up too fast...

Should this idea take off, I would greatly appreciate a 'judge' of sorts. Seeing as these are challenges we are stepping up to, it can be an opportunity to improve our photography.

Also, possibly award the 'winner' with his/her picture being displayed on the main page?

hmmm - with this being such a small forum, i think id rather keep it neutral, without voting or placements. just taking the challenge and seeing what each photographer will bring back to the table will be interesting imo. then general comments and critique on the submissions would be nice.

I'm down with the not voting part too, and even if it's just a few of us to start that's all it takes anyway for some good ideas, suggestions or critiques going back and forth.

Thx!

I like those too tegan! - let's get another 2-3 people in this thread and agree on a subject.

I'm open to anything!

we could also have themes that have to do with thoughts, feelings, ect. see what people come back with. ie) love, torture, eternity, reflection, death, life, etc. just a suggestion... :)

Too difficult to do, within a minimum time period unless you have a huge collection or lots of time to work on it. I would suspect that most don't. :)

How about: "around the house"? That covers a considerable range from macros to textures, pets, kids, furniture, sculptures, art, renovating, cleaning, flowers, etc.

Ok then - I'll make the call then and choose tegan's suggestion.

"around the house" This covers a considerable range from macros to textures, pets, kids, furniture, sculptures, art, renovating, cleaning, flowers, etc.

I'm thinking that we should choose these assignments monthly to start and we can post as many different shots as we want. If we feel really ambitious and there is enough interest we can then make it bi-monthly and eventually weekly.

I'm thinking as mentioned in this thread that we should feel free to critique and provide general comments, but that for now there will be no voting on which shots are best...

I'm going to leave this thread open for another day or two for people to add comments but I'm going to start a new forum with the first assignment now. http://www.photography.ca/Forums/showthread.php?t=738

Thx everyone - I think this will be fun!
