To call myself an amateur photographer is too much of a compliment. I know a little bit about apertures and shutter speeds. All I really know is that I like to take a lot of photos. So in an effort to improve my photo taking skills I started following Digital Photography School and PhotoJojo. I’ve gotten some really great inspiration from them over the past couple of years, and I would really recommend the budding photographer to check out their sites.
A while ago though, I was in a bit of a slump and wanting to take more photos so I started a group called Search and Snap with my friends. This is a way for us to keep in touch despite the miles that separate us, and it’s been really fun learning new techniques together. Search and Snap is a scavenger hunt for the digital age. A list of items is posted, and then participants have of a set amount of time to take and submit their photographs. My friends have even gotten their friends to play along, so we must be doing something right!
We’re nearing the end of our second year, and I thought that I would invite you to join us on this next assignment. It starts tonight and lasts through the weekend. This is probably the best assignment to start with because we’re putting our DSLRs aside, and we’re going to take photographs with nothing other than the camera found on our cell phones.
So please head over to http://searchandsnap.wordpress.com/ and I hope that you will join us this weekend!
