What we're about

Meet other locals who are interested in photography. We will meet to discuss technique, critique our work, and explore and photograph interesting cityscapes, industrial sites, and landscapes throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Whether you are a novice or seasoned professional, your medium is film or digital capture; you shoot small, medium or large format in color or black & white, this is the meetup group for you if you are an active photographer truly passionate about your work!

Photo Challenge: Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)

Online event

Accepting submissions from now until Monday, June 28th. •••

This challenge's theme is "Intentional Camera Movement” (ICM).

We didn't have a photo challenge for some time, so let's get back to it now and do something unusual - Intentional Camera Movement.

The idea came after revisiting the following blog post by Roxanne Bouché Overton:

If you are unfamiliar with ICM - I highly recommend you to try it. You'll get an idea of how to do so from the blog and please visit the gallery to see what other photographers upload. It should be very interesting.

To participate, submit 1 to 5 images for this challenge’s theme by clicking the following link: https://slickpic.us/2262010NM4Y
••• JPEGs only, please! It’s always great to add titles to your photos.

You can review the uploaded photos here: https://meetupphoto.slickpic.com/albums/Weekly-Projects

Whether you've uploaded photos or not, please like and comment on other people's photos for the current and previous weeks. Authors will definitely appreciate that. Please check periodically as new photos are uploaded daily.

If you are new to the project, please read the description and submission instructions below:


To become better at anything, you need to do it consistently. How about posting a few photos once a week/month?

So, here is the challenge:
Upload 1 - 5 photos to a group album (see instructions below) for the week’s category. It’s an individual challenge for each of you to get your creative juices flowing, share photos in the group, comment and critique each other’s shots, and above all have fun.

You can upload photos any time while the project is open, but you’ll get the most feedback when more people check the album, so it's best to upload early. Please check periodically for other people's photos and like, rate (star) and/or comment on them. Hopefully, these photographers will reciprocate and comment on yours, so everyone wins. The albums will remain public and visible to everyone all the time.

You also don’t have to restrict yourself to photos taken during that week for the category — they could be from past shoots or the weekly prompt can be used to motivate you to shoot something new.

We are using SlickPic photo sharing site to upload, view and comment on photos.

To upload, click the following link: https://slickpic.us/2262010NM4Y ••• JPEGs only, please!

It’s always great to add titles to your photos. You can also add a longer description if you'd like. Your name will be displayed under the photo. It will be picked up from your registration during the submittal process. For security purposes, I turned on the right-click-save protection.

Note: please make sure you own the photos you upload. Please don’t upload any inappropriate images and keep all comments photography related.

Our image submission service is being provided by the photo-sharing service SlickPic.com. To avoid spam and orphaned images, participants will have to create a free account before uploading. No worries, it's totally free, no ads, no spam.

To view photos, please bookmark the following album: https://meetupphoto.slickpic.com/albums/Weekly-Projects
You’ll find all the weekly albums there.
