I'm still on day 23 of the look back challenge.... should I finish that before I start this? And please keep reminding me to keep up ... maybe my theme should be remember this?

Ummm, OK, so I signed up last year and didn't get very far.

This year I signed up for the league and now I want to do this too??? What am I thinking? ...

I can't help myself :-) - so here I go again.

My theme is actually going to be "Trying this, trying that". I am still exploringm, exploring exploring and love to try new stuff with my camera.

I did this the day before yesterday (does that count for this week? :-)). I wanted to return yesterday to take some better macro shots and catch the 2 interacting more. To my horror I found that the whole nest has disapeared :-(. I assume a bird came to have them for dinner :-(.
I know it would have been nicer to stack more extension tubes on the lens, but I was just too chicken to get closer to the nest. The 2 were really quite tolerant.

Let me know which one you prefer if you have a moment.

I'm in again.

I'm in...see if I can break my 2 week record!

If you don't mind...I might do better if I

1) I'll post a new photo if I've taken one
2) I'll post a newly edited (not yet published) photo if I haven't taken any

Any objections? I am pretty sure I won't be taking a photo every week, but it would give me an incentive to go back and "finish" one I have yet to do!

Count me in for a try. Maybe I'll make it further than my last attempt....

I really wanted to do well but failed miserably last year. Iím not sure why I stopped as I continued to take plenty of bird shots.

I want to play again this year. I guess for a theme I would like to try and get 52 interesting shots from my home (ie things/kids/animals from my house or backyard). I do a bit of travel for work so if Iím away for more than a week it will be a shot from my hotel. At least this way I wonít have an excuse due to the weather or of lack of time to enter a shot.

I will also try and comment on every entry this time as well.

I will try to post a couple images a month as I will be attempting to prepare photos suitable for a calendar for 2014

This sounds like something I can handle this year. I did not sign up for the TPL because of too many work hours the first part of this year. But I think I can get out and get one photo a week. Haven't decided on a final theme, but I think it may be something like "life in the city" or a loose street/architecture theme. I want to start using my M9 on a more regular basis. Please sign me up.
01/01/2013 09:01:03 PM · #34
I'll sign up. My theme will be Macro.
01/01/2013 09:26:25 PM · #35
I'll try this again...no theme yet, maybe no theme at all.
01/01/2013 10:56:12 PM · #36
I'll give it a go! I think I'm going to go with getting to know my 105 and nature.
01/01/2013 11:02:39 PM · #37
I'd like to give it a go .. my theme will be fashion as I am trying to learn how to do better job of lighting and posing the models. If not fashion can I reserve the right to choose Mountain Life as I have just moved up into the mountains and there is a lot to record? Thanks

Thanks.
Brochure printing
01/01/2013 11:46:00 PM · #39
Yes Ben, I'll continue, hopefully with more discipline.
I got only 28 images last year, just 2 over 50% !
Will try hard to do better, shooting and commenting.
01/02/2013 09:58:35 PM · #40
Bumping. Image thread will be up at the end of the week.

No objections. In fact, I was considering the same thing with my trials of film use.

Count me in again and I'll try to do better this year. Had some health issues during the last few months that really slowed me down!

Question...a week is what day to what day?

Some calendars start the week on Sunday.
Others start the week on Monday.
Some people count pay day as the start of the week
Others count it as the last day of the week.
But generally speaking, the week usually starts on a day ending in 'day' and ends on a day ending in 'day'....

For this side challenge, you get to decide and keep your own rules...just as long as you decide to keep those rules or throw them out as you see fit.

I am in, and I think my theme would be "wide angle with noise".

Well, that's pretty clear. Thanks.
