Ideas on getting more action here

rcnaylorFebruary 26, 2009

When I first started coming here we used to have "projects" and everyone posted their pics on the "project".

Its been kind of quiet here recently.

Would that get a pick up in "business"?

Other ideas?

I remember several years ago when this forum was very busy. There were 'assignments' that people would respond to. I haven't been making many pictures for the past couple of years- physical problems. I still check this forum out and enjoy the pictures that are posted. Maybe if another 'assignment' was started, it would liven the forum up. Any ideas from anyone?

Suggestion: Pick a word...eg: "speed" "hot" "lonely"
and express it in a pic.
Don't use sunsets, animals or flowers.

"Don't use sunsets, animals or flowers."

Well, there goes my repertoire. Ha.

I have not posted here in a long while but keep popping in to soothe my soul with pictures. I am not a good photographer but would welcome a "project" to keep me busy. My suggestion for an easy start would be SMILE.

Assignments sound like fun, we could also do like a ABC's assignment too. Like the first would post an "A" photo, next person a "B" photo, etc....
I like the Smile one, Like post something that makes you smile or it is smiling, etc.

I'm not a good photographer either and it is mostly just for the fun of it. Digital makes it so easy.
So shall we start with lindajewell's suggestion and use 'smile' for the first assignment? How about it, people?

sounds good.....I will put the title 'smile' on a seperate post, and people can post whatever they like...its interpretive to the individual, if you can't get out for something new, post a photo from your archive...no time limit. After it gets a decent response,we can start another assignment.
