26 Things: November 2011!

26 Things: November 2011!

It’s time to play 26 Things again!

If you haven’t played before, this photographic project is simple – take 1 photo for each of the 26 items in the list that I’ll post below. Upload all of your 26 photos to your blog or other photo sharing site, and come back December 1st to share your completed 26 Things entry.

Check out some great completed entries from the last 26 Things project

For 26 Things November 2011 there is a little twist – there’s 13 items on the list, but you have to take 2 different photos of each item/theme.

So for example, for ‘Weather’ you could take a photo of the rain and then another photo of the sunshine!

Here is the list of 13 items – remember to take 2 photos of each:

1. Dark
2. Glow
3. Smile
4. Weather
5. New
6. Round
7. Tangle
8. Up in the air
9. Patterns
10. Tomorrow
11. Eyes
12. A sign
13. A Self Portrait

Ready to get started? Let’s go! And I’ll see you back here 1st December 2011 to share your completed entry :)

Remember – there is no membership or sign up :) you post the photos to your own blog or image sharing site (like flickr) and then share the link once you’re done!

Feel free to ask any questions in the comments box below or let me know if you’re working on the list!

me and my camera – share your story

me and my camera – share your story

The love affair continues…

Me and My Camera is a series of mini stories about our relationship with our favourite cameras. As photographers or budding photographers, we all have a favourite camera. Old faithful, the one that takes great pictures for you every time. It can be digital, or it could be film – whatever the case, let me know about your favourite camera!

Why do you love this camera so much? How did you meet? When did you start using it? Where have you taken it? Tell me the best about your camera!

Here are some of the past Me and My Camera stories we’ve seen –

Previously, I’ve posted the stories here as it’s own blog entry, but I’d love for you to share your story on your blog and then come back and add your link below.

Can’t wait to hear your stories :)

Woopsie Doodle & a new project date announcement!

Woopsie Doodle & a new project date announcement!

Doesn’t life sometimes run away from you? In my last post, I said it would be 1 week, but it’s been 5! So sorry about that x

But I miss playing photography projects with you all and would like to announce that the next one is A Day In The Life on Saturday 22nd October 2011. That’s next weekend!

Feel free to use the banner below on your blog –

A Day In The Life is about improving your photography skills through story telling throughout a 24 hour period – hopefully making you see your surrounds a bit differently and to just have some fun with your camera throughout your day.

For this game, take 1 photo an hour on the Saturday 22nd October. Try to take at least take 6 photos so you can tell us how your day went – a maximum of 24 photos.

Once you’ve taken your photographs, upload them to the net (I love flickr!) and then come back Sunday 23rd October 2011 to share the link.

Here is the link to the results from the last Day In The Life project – http://sh1ft.org/projects/index.php/2011/01/a-day-in-the-life-new-years-20102011-entries/. Everyone did such a great job and I can’t wait to see what we all get up to this time :)
