Photo Scavenger Hunt w/Image Review

Explore, Experiment, Expand!

One of the things I LOVE to do is get out with my camera, a short random list of 'to-dos' and see what I come up with.

So I've come up with a fun idea that will get us all out and shooting and social, but also allow for some real collaborative education.

Here's how it works:

We will meet at a designated area to be determined, and team up into groups of two or three depending on attendance. Then we'll hit the streets in teams with a short list of things to find and snap. Examples being: Triangle, Duo, Love, etc. Really broad things that will bring out the creative thought in us all.

Then we will re-meet, chat a bit, and head home. We will then all upload one image each under each item that we were to find, with the caption:

"_________" (associated word.)

AND:
1) I think the strongest element of this photo is:
2) I think the most distracting element of this photo is:

so that all can easily copy and paste, and leave their remarks on EACH image. This allows us all to learn how others see and interpret our art, which in time strengthens our creative voice and learn to hear our audience.

We had a blast at the last one- check out the photos and reviews in the meetup album!

      Franz, thanks for the tip! I happened to be downtown on the mall yesterday afternoon, and popped in to see it. WOW! Amazing examples of artistry and technique. We take our software for granted!

      After seeing all these great pics, looks like I'll be making a trip to the Nat'l Gallery and the Botanical Gardens this weekend to get caught up! Btw, when I missed the meetup for the gardens, I took my niece to the Orchids of Latin America Exhibit at the Museum of Natural History, and we got some fun shots. Looks like there's another exhibit on wildlife photography opening there on March 30. Good stuff!

    My wonderful PhotoHunters! I apologize for my tardiness! I will be uploading and commenting beginning tomorrow evening! I had a last minute deadline (less than a week!) land in my lap that has sucked away all my funtime attention! :/ :D

      Ooops, sorry. I didn't read since I saw other members uploading their images (and didn't know we were limited in number)... Use to upload whatever from other meetups and did the same thing here. But will know it for the next time! Thanks for the heads up!

    Carly, and everyone else, thanks for another great afternoon. And now we get to learn from each other, too! Just like the last hunt, I am amazed at what others see that I don't. Great group of people I got to meet and talk with; wish I could have stayed a little longer to meet and talk with more of you.

    Spending a gray day at the Botanic Gardens with other photogs was a perfect wayto spend Ground Hog's Day. I only wish we could've had time together at Starbuck's, but the one was not set up for groups. Oh well, I hope to make to Annapolis.

    Not going to make it after all. At home with a cold. Is there any way I can get the list and do a scavenger hunt on my own this week? It's such a fun idea.

    Weather Update for Feb 2, 2013- GroundHog Hunt Day!
    Partly cloudy skies during the morning hours will become overcast in the afternoon. High 37F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph. Bundle up- and be careful going inside-to-outside with your camera. Find a way to help her change temps slowly- will avoid condensation problems that way.... keep her in a bag, or stand in the foyer a few seconds longer going in/out, etc. :) Going to be fun!
