MISSION 24 photo challenge

The goal of this group/blog is to really challenge yourself to think outside the box and get creative with your photography! Here is your mission, if you choose to accept it. Approximately once a week, an assignment will be given. Say, “patterns” or “purple” or “minutia” or “signage” or "action", etc. Group members will then have 24 hours from the time of the assignment to take new pictures that interpret that assignment and post their picture for us all to see. Again, this is YOUR interpretation of the word...be creative!

How to get the most out of this group:
1) Move past the literal. Take risks and don't be afraid to do something wacky.
2) Under your submitted photo, tell us why that picture made the cut. Why did you take it? What inspired you?
3) LEAVE COMMENTS!! It is fun to join in and let others know what we love about a picture.

On each post, title your picture (even just by using the category name for the week) but please be sure to put a LABEL ON IT with the category name so we can keep track over the year. If you aren't sure how to put a label, please contact me!! :)

Also, if you would like to be added to this group, leave a comment with your email address and I will add you!

I think I'd like to get involved as well. I could use some motivation to take pictures of more than just the foods I make!

I was just thinking... it might be good if we we encouraged to try to add more to the title than just the word. (Like the title I put on mine... resolution in self-portrait). That makes it easier if there was a certain photo we wanted to look back on, and also if it comes up in google reader we know it's not the same one we just looked at. The label should take care of keeping them grouped together. Just a thought. :)

Oh my... we we. I meant we were. Heehehe.
