TORC 365 Photo Project -- MODS please lock

Postby GwenElf » Sat Dec 04, 2010 2:54 pm

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. :P )

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!

I'm in, too. I was useless at the project 365, so this would probably suit me more! :D

Yay, interested parties! :)

Vana-- I figured we'd start on January 1st--I'm going to talk to my cousin and see what web host he used and how easy it is to deal with (and whether or not it was free); otherwise we can always just get a Livejournal account or something like that and give everyone the password so that each person can upload his/her photos.

If I get a camera for Christmas which I have requested I am in. Otherwise it is my cell phone and I messed up my whole email account the last time I tried to use it for uploading piccies.

Great idea, Sil. :hug:

Sounds good Gwenny dear!! :D

Oh the more the merrier!!! I think this will be a terrific thing for us to all get to see our areas in a new light and at the same time as we see everyone elses. So when it is Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere we get to see what it is like for those in the Southern Hemisphere at the same time. But at least we can see what it is like in our friends countries no matter what!! :D

Last call for interested people!

Assuming rwhen and Alassë get cameras, we're at 10 right now--maybe one photo per day M-Th and then two per day F-Sun? I'm thinking that might be easier than asking people to remember to do something every ten days, rather than once a week on the same day. Or maybe I'm the only one with a terrible memory? :P

Or you could create a Livejournal community and everyone could post to that? I'm not sure even if people need to have a Livejournal account to post on an LJ community? (As some people may not have Livejournal accounts - if we would be going down the LJ route.)

As for when to take a photo, I know I wouldn't remember to take a photo every ten days. :D

I think it would be easier to post a picture say every Monday, or whatever than to remember every ten days.
Yes, assign a day to a person and let it go at that.
Also an LJ community sounds good to me. (if you can do it that way.)

Can't wait to start this.
Sounds like a blast.

Livejournal would be fine for me. I still don't know if I'll have the camera, when would you need confirmation? So you'd know before assigning the days :)

I just need to know before January 1st, but since we've got enough people to do at least one photo per day, I'll make sure every day is covered and then if you get a camera we can add you to a day.

I'm fine with the LJ community, too, so as long as that works for everyone, I'll work on setting one up. :thumbsup: I've been messing around in the communities and it looks like you don't have to be a member to reply to stuff, but I think you might have to be a member to create new posts? Still investigating...

What if we send a copy of the pic to whom ever wants to post it to an account and then we can all just use the link to view them as they get posted?

I mean I would gladly send my pics through email to someone who wants to be responsible to post them somewhere we can all view!

Me mememememe meeeee! I do 365 anyway, this will be my fifth year.

But let's not do it on Facebook, please. Two reasons: Facebook has a nasty policy regarding photos you publish there- as long as they are on the site Facebook can use them however they please, wherever they please without asking your permission, and the photos are resized upon upload which causes drastic quality loss. Facebook is not a good place for photo sharing.

Alternatives:

LJ is a pretty cool place, though your photos will still need to be hosted somewhere else, and I don't think you can make posts (not comments, actual posts) to a community without having an account. It's great for discussion, though, which is probably the main point here besides the photos.

Flickr is super good for photo sharing and getting exposure, and it has cool tools like geotagging, but it's only free for 200 photos. Afterwards you can still upload photos and links to all of them will be active if you post them on another site, but only the newest 200 photos will be visible on flickr's site. You can't comment without a flickr account, though(or yahoo, since flickr belongs to them), but even if it's not the place we host the actual group I recommend it to everyone for their photo storage needs.

Picasa is another photo storage and photo album site, I've heard good things about, but haven't played with so someone else might have to speak up about that.

Tumblr is very trendy right now, it seems to have developed into a more complex blogging platform than it used to be. I haven't used it, though, so I have no idea how it would work with multiple users.

Blogspot is a good place to blog, and you can have multiple people 'moderating' the same blog so they can post to it. I know you don't need an account to comment, but you would need one to post- but Blogspot is Google and many people have gmail which sorts that out. It would tie in to picasa as well since that belongs to Google too.

I guess it all depends on whether there will be one, two people moderating and managing the whole thing and taking care of uploading the photos, or if we want everyone to upload their own stuff.

In any case, count me in.
