    Photo Challenge: The town I live in.

    Apologies if this has been posted in the incorrect forum. I cannot see forum descriptions using Tapatalk.

    Anyone want to join me on a bit of a photography journey?

    I'm starting a new photography project to showcase the town I live in.

    Sort of like taking photos for a pretend travel brochure.

    My photography has mainly been my rugrats, so I thought of doing this to challenge myself.

    Anyone interested in joining me? Or is this a boring idea?

    If this gets up, please use the 'member challenges' forum for placing the photos.

    The other issue for consideration, is that if you get this happening, you have to consider that a lot of AP members do not live in large cities, so any themes to the challenges may not apply to a heap of members. Things like 'graffiti week', when graffiti tends to be something that small towns do not deal with. So any themes would need to be fairly general to ensure members are not only willing to, but able to, join in on them.

    I'm more thinking of not having any type of theme, the theme itself being to pretend you are photographing your town for a travel brochure...

    But it might not be a popular idea...

    My goodness, where would I start? Somewhere as photogenic as Canberra would be a big job, and could end up being a whole string of cliched shots of all the "usual" places, so it would be a fascinating challenge to do Canberra WITHOUT doing any of the over-photographed cliched places. You have me tempted.

    this is a good idea.. i think this will get me out shooting a lot more and let me explore landscape photography as well..

    but i think it leaves a lot of questions.. like, how many photos do we need? or is it one photo a week?

    One photo a week, I think would be a good start. Enough time to get a person thinking / planning / shoot / editing.

    Maybe posting the photo on a Friday? Gives the weekend to shoot, the week to edit and plan next shot?

    This is my reasoning. I shoot my kids or other peoples kids and hardly ever shoot landscape or scenery. I need to broaden my scope.

    You'll need to start a thread in the Member's Challenges area I would think - http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...BER-CHALLENGES
    And then we'd probably have to either have our own threads for our own photos to just keep adding to our own thread each week, or have to come in and all add them under the thread you start. Ricktas or Kym would be the ones to ask how they'd like it to be done, but I'm pretty sure that's at least the right area to be putting the initial thread to start it off.

    I think one thread per week for people to post in is better. Saves having to reload photos we've already seen, and there may be a lot of photos over time.
