I know there's a lot of Bloopers around and about that are really in to photography. I know quite a few have participated in Project 365 etc, and some are.

Just wondering if anyone would be interested in doing a photography theme of the week/month?
Ie - a forum topic is started with a theme, then everyone can post their pic and then other readers/posters can give their feedback/constructive criticism/etc.
I participate in this on another (mothers) forum I am on but it's all based around our kids, and whilst thats fine... a) my kid is getting sick of me, b) I want to be taking photos of more than just her.
It's been a fabulous learning curve for me, I've learned a lot about my camera and developed a lot in my technique. So I am sure it's something a lot of us here who are interested in photography can benefit from.

So yeah, any one interested? Could be a bit of fun?

I think it would be fun :)

But it'd be neat to have on the main page, and do entries about it as well! ;D

I'm doing my first 365 project this year so that'd be something I'm interested in :)

I'll be in it too, of course. I'm having the same problem on the other forum seeing as Oliver won't co operate and Isla is starting to become difficult too. I think I'm going to have a bit of an internet break for the next couple of weeks because everything sucks at the moment. Definitely when I come back though.

What would you prefer - a weekly or a monthly theme?

And does anyone have any theme ideas that they'd like to see prop up?

And when would we like to start doing something!?

I like this idea! I'm always wanting to take photos but never do, so this would motivate me to use the camera a lot more!

I think this is awesome! I did the 365 project last year and really enjoyed it (although by the end, I was sick of my camera!). This would be super neat to participate in!

I love taking pictures but I gave up on the 365 project when things got too hectic :( I'd like to give this a try though. Good idea! :) So what kind of themes were you thinking, things like photograph something cold and blue? Or your favorite piece of artwork in your home? Or have everyone take a picture of the sunset? What kind of themes do they use on your mother's forum?

Any theme could apply.

The way it is done on the mothers forum is we choose a theme of the month and then each week there is a sub-theme.

This month the theme is SOOC (straight off of camera... so no editing AT ALL, be it cropping, straightening, enhancing etc).
Then the sub themes have been simple like "around the house" or "portrait" etc. They're very basic themes, I particularly like ones where you can think right outside the square.

Not to say it needs to be done like that.

I like that though with the main theme and then the sub theme. Monthly I think would be good so we don't run out of themes haha Let me know when it starts!

I'd totally get involved. If I had challenges. I think that was my problem with 365 - I just...didn't have any direction. I'd love to get more use out of my camera. I think I've only used it twice since I bought it. I need to learn how to use the darn thing properly and maybe using it more would help!!!

I found these two sites...they give you promps, but only one word that could be useful - I mean it gives some direction but its also open to interpretation.

Ok... so a decent amount of interest! :) This should be fun.

I am thinking a trial month - see how we go ay? For the month of March, I will start a thread on the 1st of March, and I will give a theme. And then I will break that month up in to 4 sub-themes. So just over 1 week for each sub theme. Sound good?

And in the mean time, seeing as it's still 2 weeks away, I think I might make another thread as a 'starter challenge', just to get started and maybe use it as a way to introduce ourselves & what kind of cameras we have etc... what we wanna get out of it, etc. Be a good way to gage how much interested there really is!
