AgreedHmmmm.... Not sure I like the no chatter idea. No gear talk maybe, but feedback is good. It brings the thread to life, rather than making it feel like a dusty museum, and leaves you wondering if anyone is looking, or if we are all just posting and not looking at each others work.
Agreed. That whole "Canon [insert model] does the Flea Market" thing or a "Camera, Lens, Film/Software" tag just takes away from the magic that was actually performed by the photographer. We should be enjoying that photos, not glorifying the gear. And positive feedback definitely encourages the photographer to keep on going.No-one suggested "no talk" ... simply no mention of the camera, lens, film, whatever involbed.
I have none, film posts will end up dominating one day or another because film users have to process so many at once. Don't you use digital at all?I do have a reservation about a daily post regime as I'm using so much film these days.
On the other hand I could simply get a LF camera and a £30000 drum scanner
Or we could be really radical and run from, say, the 20th of September to the 20th of October.I think this is definitely best to push it back to October and have it run for the month.
So I'll start pushing you in defining what challenge you want by starting a poll tomorrow. It seems like the main ideas are (1) a prompt per day like May (but only with 30 prompts) (2) a simple photo per day with no restrictions....relax and shoot (3) a single camera/single lens challenge like Jan (4) something else.
suggest any other ideas anyone has in a loose brainstorming fashion and I'll check in 12-18 hours and start an "official" poll.
