Hi guys!

last year around this time I suggested to everyone to join me in the PAW ~ 2008.

A lot of people signed in, but lots of them also didn't make it through the whole year. Too bad!

But together with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' njsabs2323, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Darnok, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Mephisto (?), ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Focuspoint (?) and I made it (almost, couple of weeks to go ;))

Anyway, next year, 2009, I want to focus on still-lifes. Not just the regular still-lifes, but special ones. I can't really tell what it's gonna be, but I can tell it's gonna be a series of 52 bizarre, fascinating and surreal images.

It would be awesome if some of you want to join me again. There's no special limit (like in 2008 - portraits), but it would be cool if you focus on one side of photography (still life, portraits, landscapes, animals, macro etc.)

Wanna join the ride? Let me know!!!

"Rules"

~ You can sign up until january the 1st 2009.
~ One photo a week that fits your theme. I'll make an image-thread here on DPC where you can.
~ After week 1 it's not possible to enter the side challenge anymore. The goal is to really make 52 photo's in the theme, one each week.
~ If you couldn't make it in one week, no worries, but try to catch up. My experience is that sometimes it's pretty hard to hold on the one-a-week each time. But once you're behind for 6-7 weeks, it's hard to keep up.
~ Try and comment on the photo's of the other participants, if you have time to do so.
~ Have lots of fun!!!

Me ...me ...me **jumping up and down**

I'd like to stick with people :)

Waht's your specialty gonna be the coming year? :D

I think I might join you again. Don't think I will do people either. Not sure what though....i'll have to think about it. The PAW project was fun. Glad it is over soon though. I really enjoyed viewing the portraits that were posted.
12/13/2008 04:19:33 AM · #6
The portrait project this year was great fun, but it was extremely challenging to get a portrait of a different person each week for the whole year (well, almost done). I may do another photo-a-week next year, definitely not portraits again though, or macro (did macro in 2007). I still need to decide on a theme, have thought about doing landscapes - but I don't think I will have the time next year to go somewhere and photograph a landscape each week (I may do another little side project and photograph a landscape in a new place each month). I may just do a photo-a-week without a theme.
12/13/2008 05:37:59 AM · #7
Please count me in - as yet I haven't formulated a theme, will get back to you.
12/13/2008 05:43:12 AM · #8
Jennifer & Konrad, enough time to figure it out, right? ;)

Hey Lisa, sweet!

I'll make a list next week in the first post :)
12/13/2008 06:32:06 AM · #9
I'm up for that, sounds like fun!
12/13/2008 08:00:35 AM · #10
Thanks to Lisa, I'm going to give this a go. I need to try to come up with a theme. That will be the true challenge for me... One thing for an entire year. Hmmmm...

WOW - I didn't realise I was so persuasive - GRIN! Glad to see I'll have you as my conscience and motivation buddy.
12/13/2008 08:25:57 AM · #12

When you know what you're gonna do and allready have a link to a page where you'll post them through the year, let me know here or via PM!

Ok my theme will be ... A Year at Karkarook

Karkarook Park is an amazing park with a reclaimed area of land that was once mined for sand and has since been transformed into a stunning public space that includes a large man-made lake.

It's a fantastic place near my home where I walk my dog. I was there walking Retro last week with my daughter as the sun was setting and the light was totally SUBLIME. The next time I was there it was stormy and moody and I thought how amazing it was that one place had so many moods, nooks, curves, life and space and thought I'd like to document it over a long period of time - well now I will!

So now I'm VERY excited by what I can achieve there.

Meanwhile here are a couple of images I've already taken there.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/683/120/516685.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/683/120/516685.jpg', '/') + 1) .

I would like to participate. My project probably won't be very "artsy," but I want to take a picture of my two children together every week, or at least a picture of one of them. :)
12/13/2008 06:40:16 PM · #15
I will give it a go...after this years accomplishments...and sidetrackings...who knows what next year will bring.
12/14/2008 06:02:50 AM · #16
I've added a list in the first post with the people who've allready picked a theme.

When the rest of you post your theme and link, I'll add you too :)

For those looking for a place to host their 2009 photo-a-week, blogspot is worth considering - it's free, not tied to your DPC membership (ie, will still be up if your membership lapses) and I've found that the blog format works well for weekly updates.

Can I join my theme will be birds.

Why not DPC? I'm confused now. ;[

Hanneke, I'm interested and will let you know what my theme is in the coming week.

ETA. Since my love for macros has never declined ever since I first fell in love with it as a teen, that's what my theme will be. I will be using the classical definition of macro photography and not just be shooting closeups though. All my images will be 1:1 ratio; objects will be rendered as their actual real size on the sensor.

PoW 2009 Macros

DPC is a fine place to host. Just create a folder and voila! Everyone can find your "-a-week" entry and comment on it. If you do NOT have a DPC portfolio, then you may want to look at another site such as blogspot. I will suggest that you'll get more comments and probably more views from the DPC'ers if you have the shot posted here. Your mileage may vary.
12/14/2008 12:39:57 PM · #21
I added Jac and Sulamk on the list!
12/14/2008 01:39:47 PM · #22
Me, me, me!!!!

My theme will be urban nature, nature photos taken in my backyard and around San Diego, but I might add a shot or two from a couple of trips, just to keep things going when I'm traveling.

edit: Here's the portfolio the pics will go into: Urban Nature 2009

I'll be back for my 4th year running at POW! 2009

I've tried the theme thing, never works out for me. I travel to much for my work and I haven't figured out a theme to fit "Cooped up for 2 week in the Las Vegas Convention Center"!
12/14/2008 01:47:57 PM · #24
I'd like to join and try some macro... I will be receiving my reverse lens adapter and I can't wait to use it!

DPC is fine if you are a member and plan to be a member for the duration of the year. I personally like the blog approach for a project like this.
