Thumbs up The Official Photo-a-Day for July 2008 thread - Week Three!



Welcome to July and that time of year for the annual monthly long snap-a-thon now in it's fourth year.

The idea is simply to take and post a single photo a day, every day for the whole month of July, no exceptions*. Don't try and agonise over the small details, try and have some fun again with your camera, whether it's film, digital, point & shoot or DSLR. Try some stuff you haven't done before, street photography, shoot from the hip, macro, wildlife, night shots, architecture, flash, infrared, it's all allowed.

*though if you miss a day, don't worry, just carry on the next day.

Shooting digital will give you an instant result for posting online, whereas with film you have to finish the whole roll, get the film processed, printed or scanned... This could take days or a couple of weeks before you get to put something online. Again don't agonise over post processing, that's not what this event is for. Try and get the composition and exposure right in the camera.

It might be advisable to map out some idea for photographs in advance as inspiration may not present itself every day, or time / work / family constraints may prevent you from long treks out. Practically everyone had a few days towards the end of the month that were short on ideas. July is a long month, you'll probably realise this by the 21st (or maybe the 2nd!).

To keep a chronological log of photos I have an account with flickr.com (the basic account is free), if you keep the uploaded photos to 800 pixels on the largest side then you'll easily get all 31 photos in with the free account. Create a new set and call it "Photo-a-Day July 2008" or "PAD 2008" or something and I'll link it to your name below. Other people use an online blog such as www.photoblogs.org to host their photos with accompanying comments. Otherwise you can set up a free account with photobucket or even just post individual photos here using imageshack.

The first year we had eight people up for the challenge and 2006 this went up to 36 taking part (and 25 on flickr) and roughly the same amount for 2007. Each year has produced some stunning photography (and possibly giving participants a better insight into their camera gear & photography). So, anyone else up for this... again again again again? Just sign up below.
