Are you ready to be challenged? I am…
I am looking for someone to commit to a “Photo a week”.
Back when I was in elementary school, we used to do this “thing” called “writing” and we used to write to a Pen Pal somewhere in the word. Well I want to kind of take the same concept, but apply it to photography.

I would like to set a goal of shooting one “photograph with a purpose” a week; it can be of anything you choose, but must be shot during that week. With my (our) busy lives, I sometimes forget that I even have a camera. We would pick a day of the week (Like Thursday by Midnight) and that would be the deadline for exchanging photos via email. There is to be only positive reinforcement in the critique (only say what we like about it) unless otherwise solicited. Camera data and a description of why we took the photo is to accompany it in the email. That’s it!

I think this idea will:
Get us to think about everything as a photograph.
Challenge us to seek out new and exciting subjects.
Give is the opportunity to meet new people.
See new places, culture and lifestyles.
Push us to develop better habits.
See and attempt different shooting styles.
Etc.

Anybody game?
