- Calling all photographers – who is up for One Photo Everyday 2010?
Well folks it has been one heck a year. This time last year I put out a message saying who is up for the One Photo A Day challenge. Take one photo every day in 2009 and put it on Flickr.
Well with days to go, it seems that 4 of us who started are on for achieving this!
So just thought I would put this thread out now to see if anyone fancies the challenge in 2010. It really is interesting seeing who is doing what each day. The group does not have that many regular posters so you get to know people through their wierd and wonderful pics, their highs and their lows too.
Go on, I bet some of you are up for this?Posted 8 years ago
Kit – excellent – would be great to have you on board! My year this year went Gibraltar – Scotlamd – Peru – Scotland – Devon – Scotland. It really is wierd seeing your whole year in thumbnails on a single Flickr page. Even if some of the photos are a tad duff on the off days, they totally change when seen as part of a whole year! My year didn't really get off to a good start and it shows, but yeah, it's good to see it picking up : )Posted 8 years ago
Yep – you load up one photo a day but you can post a few at a time if you can't get to a computer to load them up. This group is one of the most laid back in terms of rules and regs. I just ask people not to swear on photos or in the discussion and keep the content family friendly really. That's about it.Posted 8 years ago
Ah right – yes – the idea is that you take a photo for that day, yourself, someone else, self timer, and upload that. It isnt upload any photo from any day. Some people do and that is fine, but the challenge is to take one photo a day.
I am not a photographer, but the great thing is is that there are some very talented ones on there who can give you ideas about composition etc. It can be a good way to learn and be inspired.
This is my life in 2009 😀Posted 8 years agostuartie_cMember
I'm going to try to do this for 2010 Simon.
Starting a digital photography course for the S2 pupils at my school so this should give me a focus (sorry…).
My uploads will probably be sporadic rather than one upload each day, but I'll try to stick to taking one per day – you might get a weeks's worth at a time.Posted 8 years ago
When Simon posted up this time last year I joined up and it's been a great disraction for a work a day life, 4 of us who joined last year have managed to complete our One Photo A Day project some are just a bit short and some pop in from time to time. All are welcome.
Here's my set so far
A few of my favorites
I'm currently uploading my photos to a book which i'll order on Jan 1st from here
Simon did ask for Photographers, well don't worry if you're as crap as me or even worse it will be worth it. You have un-inspired days and days were you can take hundreds and it's difficult to choose which shot to up load.
There is also an monthly mini competition where no prizes are given out and I've never won it 🙁Posted 8 years ago
Ah well John, with a few more from STW plus me trying to fiddle it for you, all you need to do is post a pic of your bike and I am sure we will work something out.
I forgot to ssy the group has an icon. At the end of each month we vote for our favourite photo, and the best pic gets to be the icon of the month for the following month. Just for fun but it's good to celebrate all the great photos in the group.Posted 8 years agoCapt. KronosSubscriber
Joined up 🙂
No idea how I will get along, but I tend to work out and about in the Lakes and beyond and almost always have my camera with me. Just need to get my motivation levels up a bit, and try to slow down a bit during the day.
Look forward to getting started!Posted 8 years agoGravySubscriber
:-)I would really like to do this, but I have a couple of questions.Posted 8 years ago
1. This year I am 50 yoa and for my b/day me and the s/o are off to Colorado and Utah driving along the scenic byways and visiting interesting places. So while I will be able to take hundreds of pics I won't have anything with me to post them up (wee bit of a techno phobe).
2. So can I select 1 pic per day to post and do it when we get back (3 weeks later)? Or what is the alternative ?
I was in Peru in the rainforests for a month, with no electricity and no nothing! We have a 6 photos a day limit, so you can upload 6 pics a day to catch up. We have this sorted.
In 2010 I will be spending 3 months doing some very intensive training in the rainforests again, so yeah, I will have a 3 month gap to fill!Posted 8 years ago
Duid I forget to say the very wonderful JohnClimer is the other admin who will keep you all in shape while I am away.
And who knows, maybe this time I will bring back a Mrs Ralli from peru. Anything could happen next year for me and I have as yet no plans for the end of my MSc 😯Posted 8 years ago
Well don't forget to read my little pep talk here!Posted 8 years ago
Just joined, this is something I had planned on doing for 2010 so it would be good to have somewhere to post them. Most of them will be uploaded straight from my iPhone as I rarely carry my camera, and don't have proper internet access at the moment. I just like taking photos though 🙂 It's gonna be fun!Posted 8 years agodidmattSubscriber
Joined too, most of my shots will either be from my Blackberry or from my Canon DSLR, but sometimes i do let some of my older/toy cameras out to play in the light 😉
Looking forward to it, got a few interesting things planned for this year too.
If anything, hopefully will be interesting insight into peoples day to day thoughts/ideas/images.
Oh, my flickr name is msjharper, link is in the profile.Posted 8 years agobigGMember
Sign me up for this, was planning on doing something similar anyway so this should make sure I actually do it! assume it's a joint flicker account? Can someone let me have the details?
Mine will be a mix of iPhone and digi pics, will try to keep them as interesting as I can.., no promises though!Posted 8 years agoloraxSubscriber
I might give it another go but would do it very differently – it ended up taking up far too much time last year so I didn't get beyond August, after the kids mutinied. If I do it again it'll be with film rather than digital, so I'll submit in batches about two or three weeks out of sync. I'll see….
And thanks very much for keeping at it Simon – very much appreciated 🙂

Yep – it's a very friendly and positive group. I have barely needed to do any Moderating, and I look forward to seeing your pics.
Goan – yeah – get clicking on your mobile phone and get uploading. When you get into the flow of things it gets easy, but there have been a few hairy moments trying to remember to take a pic! The challenge I always feel is remembering to snap.Posted 8 years ago
