Photo Scavenger Hunt w/Image Review

Hi all! I'm one of the new organizers here, and 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.

****UPDATE DEC 4, 2012*******

I thought Gadsby's was a great place to meet outside and have our quick pair-up and move out meeting!

We will draw from a bag- both to meet our matches (unless you came with a special friend- I won't be mean and split you up!) and also draw our 5 words for the Hunt!

You'll be free to traverse the city wherever you like for 2.5 hours. (I added that extra half hour just for traffic and sunset golden hour!) 

Then we'll meet here:

Teaism
400 8th Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20004
Lexington Market Square
(202)[masked]
teaism.com
(closest stop: Archives) (also in the middle of stops:  Metro Center, Chinatown, Judiciary, Federal Triangle)

Why a different end spot? Because I want you to stretch those creative legs! (or wheels, if you are a driver!)

    This is totally last minute- but who wants to go shoot the Inauguration (weather depending- at least 40 degrees! LOL) Could meet at Carriage House, and walk in from there- she's only 2 blocks from the Mt. Vernon metro....and there's usually ok parking.

      Carly I got some awesome shots last year. I hope to go this year--I have a young cousin marching in the parade. The inauguration is so crowded, it is better to go solo, but maybe a meetup at Carriage House after the oath would be a great idea. I usually take the crowds, no hope of getting near POTUS and VP. You will have a ball since you love street shots--and street parties. Please post if you have a get-together at Carriage House. I'll try to get there.

      Hi Carly, I see that meetup requires upfront payment (which I can understand), but this being February, I will not commit until closer to the day - weather depending.

    I'm loving all the photos and interactions happening! Be brave, be bold! :) Don't forget to comment on everyone's photos, not just the ones you like. :) If you don't like something- tell us why! We're all here to learn.

    Sounds great, but I'll be elsewhere this coming Sunday -- but Sundays are usually the best days for me, so I'll keep checking in for upcoming events.

  • Mary

    I agree with Cathy. This sounds GREAT, but alas -- not during a Redskins home game. I will also be at FedEx Field. Let us know if you change the date and time or do this again please!

    Sounds great but I'll be at Fedex field

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
