Project52 2018 Week 21: Ooh, Shiny
Week 21: Ooh, Shiny - Like a dog that sees a squirrel and jerks the leash out of its owner’s hand to chase it, I just can't help but get excited, and sidetracked, by butterflies delicately flapping in the breeze or a spraying fountain in the park. I photograph them at every opportunity. What about you: what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny!”? (Upload by May 26) This is our weekly challenge project: to post a new and different image each week. RSVPing to the Meetup event is NOT necessary. To participate please GO TO THE FACEBOOK ALBUM. Each week there will be an assignment (starting on Sundays) that is intended to get everyone out shooting. Assignment themes may be interpreted however you wish (that's part of the fun) but the images should be new work that you have created during 2018. This project gives us a chance to step out of our comfort zone and be creative. All images should be shared in the Facebook group so that we can discuss what is good and can be improved, but we would encourage you to also post to the Flickr group and Instagram to the group hashtag #madisonphotographymeetup. Everyone who wants to participate in our year-long project is expected to share images and give feedback. WHAT TO DO? - Upload 1 to 3 images each week to the week’s Facebook album - Make sure to TITLE AND CAPTION your work. Tell us about your thoughts, technique, inspiration, etc. - Make sure to tag the images with #52in2018mpmg and any other hashtags that fit… how about #photographylife ? - Images should be uploaded by the Sunday a week after the challenges are announced. Don’t think too hard about these challenges, they should only take you a week at most to accomplish. - Participate in the discussion and give constructive feedback on the images posted by others. -for those who want an additional challenge, why don’t you try to “get it right in camera #straightoutofcamera, or take your photos only with a cellphone #cellphoneography, or step back in time and make it your last shot on the role of film #lastshot WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Take some time to review all the images in the album, like the ones you like, and offer some constructive feedback in the comments. Have fun!
