It always seems like the photography bloggers are unintentionally on the same project roll-out schedule. We just ended our film camera project here on Epic Edits, but in its wake three others have popped up within a few days of each other.
So if you're looking to get involved with a project to keep you busy, here are 3 good ones worth checking out:
BUYING PRINTS FROM YOUR FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPHERS
JMG-Galleries — Deadline: November 2, 2008
“The goal of this project is to introduce fine art photography, photography books, print exchanges, and other photography related products to photography fans of all walks of life. It is also to spur photography fans to think in terms of financially supporting talented photographers so they can continue to do what they love.”
This is such a cool thing! We love selling our own photos, but it pains most of us to think of buying one from another photographer. Jim offers several methods for acquiring prints or other items from your favorite photographers: alternate products, books, print exchanges, etc. I've been meaning to do some print exchanges for a while now, so this is the perfect excuse for me to get going with it.
POLLUTION/ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS PROJECT
ADIDAP — Deadline: October 18, 2008
“The world we are living in is getting more polluted every minute. The project aim is to document the pollution you are experiencing in your area in a picture. What we are looking for is a documentary kind of photos that would raise environmental awareness in the viewer.”
I've long held the belief that the camera is the mightiest of all weapons. Photos can change the world, and they will continue to make an impact on our history-in-the-making. Antoine has a great concept going with this project — pollution is everywhere, and we're often so used to it that we can't see it. Capturing this in a photo can bring it back to the attention of everybody. The winner of the project will receive a one year Flickr Pro account.
SHARE A PHOTOGRAPHY TIP
Beyond Megapixels — Deadline: September 26, 2008
“We're all about sharing our photography tips and tricks here at Beyond Megapixels because we like making information accessible for all. Now we're asking you, dear readers, to share some of yours.”
Jeff and Lisa bring us some awesome photography tips and articles each week. So now they're turning the tables and asking us for tips. Specifically, they're asking you to post a photo (on your blog, Flickr, or wherever) and give a few paragraphs on how the photo was created and/or processed. Oh yeah… and they're giving away a $50 Amazon gift card to one random participant.
