Hello newcomers! This is the home of the TORC 365 photo project, and we are looking to go another year, but with some new recruits!
Do you own a camera? Yes? Then you're in!
...no, really, that's all we want: people with cameras who are willing to take one photo per week (or to be an occasional guest poster) and share it on our blog.
You do not need to be a photographer. You don't need a fancy camera. All you need is a couple of minutes each week to take photo and upload it to the site. Photos can be of anything (TOSable) you like--aspects of your home, your workplace, your city, pretty landscapes, places you go on vacation, etc. The point of the blog is to share a little bit of yourself with the rest of TORC through pictures.
We've had a great time doing this in 2011 and plan on doing it again in 2012--if you're at all interested, either in being a regular poster or a guest poster, please post and let us know, and we'll get you set up on the blog before the new year!
Wow, Thread 2.0! This is so exciting!
For those just arriving, our blog can be found here: Shire and Shutter
Monday: Sil and Frelga and occasionally Gil
Tuesday: Tooks and Krawler
Wednesday: Calma and rwhen
Thursday: Rose and Hobby
Friday: PatriotBlade and rotating Guest Star
Saturday: heliona and Rodia
Sunday: Vana and Guru
So I've seen lots of people do the 365 photo project (in which you take one photo per day and post it on a blog or album) and always thought it was a great idea, but also always tended to forget or feel like I wouldn't have enough time.
This past year, my cousin and a friend of his decided to do a joint project--each of them submits one photo per day to their site, but what makes it really cool is that they live in different towns, and he especially does a lot of travelling, so the pictures are from everywhere. (Their site is called South and Wool if you want to see it--I can't post the link because the current first photo has some profanity in it.
This got me thinking about how cool it would be to do a TORC 365 project, where TORCers from all around the world would submit photos of their lives, hometowns, places they visit, etc.
I certainly don't expect people to post especially personal photos or anything like that -- people are welcome to photograph what they feel comfortable sharing on the internet, and anything from nature shots, for instance, to the interior of your new apartment would be welcome. The idea is basically a 360 photo project in which a big group of us from TORC is involved, which would not only vary the photo type and location, but also spread out the responsibility. What I figure is that even if 7 people are interested, that'd mean one photo per week from each of us, which we could upload to a joint website for everyone to see. If lots of people are interested, we can spread out the work further, or do what my cousin did and post two photos per day. Etc.
So.. anyone interested? Let me know here and we can start planning!
