This side challenge is inspired by Rebecca's 50 day personal and then DPC community photo-a-day project. The original picture thread can be found here.

The idea is to take and post one picture each day for each day in October. The goal is to record something that happens each day and post with why you took the picture or what it means to you.

1. Step a bit out of your comfort zone - new photographic technique, pp technique, share something important, do a self portrait, take a candid, etc.

2. Keep up on posting and commenting.

3. Record in your comments why you took picture, what it is, how you felt, etc. Even comments such as, "I was tired and bored so here's my boot" tell us a lot.

4. This isn't about creating a great picture every time but more about exploring yourself and others in the DPC community.

5. When you really, really don't feel like taking a picture: take lenscap off, click, lenscap on. See rule 4.

6. Your spouse and kids make great subjects. If they're not used to it by now, they will be by the end of October!

7. Post processing steps if you think others may not know the technique.

8. Boring, mundane, and posting several days at once are allowed.

1. Have fun.

The above suggestions can be revised as necessary, just post here.

It was a lot of hard work to do the 50 days so the group decided to shorten it and will do this every other month. It was a great chance to learn about ourselves, others, and try new things.

For those who want to play, post here and I'll update the list. I'll create the picture thread at the end of the month.

Confirmed players so far:

I'd like to try. It's been difficult for me to shoot and post much, so I may post two or three days at a time.

I'm in. I've just gotten back into shooting after a wee break during a big move so I think I can do this. As long as boring and mundane are acceptable at times. :)

I want to be boring and mundane if I can do it next to jenesis.

I would love to be involved, so put my name in please..... Thanks and looking forward to this one..... I am going to try and make it a candid or street image if possible, most of ther time, or about me and our struggles and joys of each day.

Count me in.

I am thinking that I might give this a go. I am at a very quiet time for my work so this might be a good chance so pleased to see boring mundane images allowed :)

Count me in please! I enjoyed the 50 day challenge, it did start to get a bit much after 30 (even just for the fact that you had to think about what day in the challenge to label it! lol).

btw, I love rule 3, sometimes when you're looking at someone elses shot you like to know what was going on when they took it.

I'm currently in the sept bw side challenge and having some fun. Dunno if I can keep it up but would like to reserve a place for the very last minute if thats ok?

Awesome side challenge BTW.

This looks a lot like the "Show us where you live" 30 day challenge, and I see some of the same friends have already signed on for this one. That was a fine adventure, and this one will be also.
I would love to do this one, but I will be staying in my camper on a job a lot at that time, so may not have my net service with me.
If it looks like I will have time to do the commenting, I may take a shot at this challenge, otherwise, I will have to sit it out.

I'm gaining enough infamy to be mentioned in three threads I didn't start and hadn't previously commented in and now to inspire side-challenges, too? Sweet!

I'm going to try this. I hope I can keep up!
Add me please.

I'm going to take a photo of my right foot every day...

Oh, maybe I won't be able to participate this time around. ;-)
09/19/2007 02:21:11 AM · #17
Sign me up, but please be aware that I may have stretches of time with no internet access. Or days like today when I type in a response, hit post, and it says "No connection" so I type it all in again. Argh. But it sounds therapeutic. I could use therapeutic about now. I will try to keep up and work around non-access times. And I hope you all like beige!

I added you to the possibles, let me know if you're in for sure.

I'd like to play, count me in.

I already do a photo-a-day blog so if you don't mind that I may enter a lot of shots that I will be putting on my blog, I'd love to join.
09/19/2007 08:17:30 AM · #21
I would love to join as well. Ok, I've "joined" other forums before but because of time constraints and rules (and sometimes feelings of photographic inadequacy LOL), I wouldn't actually participate. Since I'm on a 6 week hiatus in Argentina from work, I know that I have time & need a project anyway. Plus this will also help me to keep up with my daily blog.

Please count me in. Yay.

I would like to join.

Sign me up. I'll be traveling for a few days, and I don't have a laptop (poor, deprived me!), but I'll do my best to catch up when I get home.
09/19/2007 09:03:40 AM · #24
I'm in. Thanks for getting this going!
09/19/2007 09:04:44 AM · #25
i'm in. i've been wanting to join in a side challenge for a while now. :)
