Alright sounds good then. Now how are we gonna organize all of this? Dump the pics into a blog or ?
November 08, 2010 @ 17:34:53
let me be in the same group as halfbreded
November 08, 2010 @ 17:35:18
all the photographers should send their pics to one person's email. groups prolly won't matter. whoever gets the pics emailed will sort out the pics himself.
November 08, 2010 @ 17:49:39
so 4 pictures and no theme?
November 08, 2010 @ 18:52:12
what do you guys think about having each group pick their own theme?
November 08, 2010 @ 19:09:35
Word. Remember to let me know if someone drops out...

I say each person should send a finished portfolio to the organizers via email, usershare, megaupload, or whatever you see fit.

let me be in the same group as halfbreded

I guess you could if someone wanted to trade with you...

all the photographers should send their pics to one person's email. groups prolly won't matter. whoever gets the pics emailed will sort out the pics himself.
Basically this, either urbanite, sjem, or reluhtivity.

so 4 pictures and no theme?

No, each person gets 20 pages. One book is 80 pages, and there are 4 people in each group. So there will be a book for each group to make a 4 book volume series. You can do whatever you want within the members of your group (if you want a theme, you guys need to decide on one).

The series will be 4 separate books and each person gets 20 pagese in their groups book. Within those 20 pages, that person can do literally whatever they want aslong as it's dope. I know it seems extremely vague and i'm just repeating myself, but i can't make it any more simple lol. I'm positive everyone has had a time where they saw something and was just like "damn that's dope" or "damn that'll be a sweet picture", we want the book full of those moments. I think it'll be awesome to see the pictures everyone comes up with.
November 08, 2010 @ 22:45:35
I think the reason everyone is asking if its 4 pictures per person is because they think it's going to be one book with all 20 photographers. I also thought that's how it was originally and when a new volume have to be done we would just rinse and repeat, that way everyone participate in the very first project and future ones and if there's more photographer interested we would just make it bigger with more pages.

Also do you guys think a tumblr blog would work for the pictures?
November 08, 2010 @ 23:12:52
Oh okay, I think I was the one who was confused lol. Anyway, if we're going about it that way, then yea, 4 pages per person. As for uploading the pics, I think a blog could help sell the book.
November 08, 2010 @ 23:46:00
Yeah for sure. I/Vee can help spread it around tumblr and stuff. A blog could be a good idea then we all can see what pics we've taken =P
November 09, 2010 @ 00:10:59
yeah i agree one book is a lot better, in terms of being able to complete, and being able to sell it.
you guys should decide on the themes or if its goin to be freestyle. Also deadlines.. just to get moving
November 09, 2010 @ 00:21:36
I think one book would be better just have a cutoff date for people to get in on the project. This way all of the shots will be in one book. just my 2 cents.
November 09, 2010 @ 01:08:17
so no grouping if we are doing one book? pretty stoked for the project that im going to buy some new gears if this all go through. Been itching for long time now heres an excuse to buy stuff.
November 09, 2010 @ 02:19:47
i always thought it would be 4 photos by everyone partcipating. and to have somewhat of a structure every group would have themes. that means we would get one book with 80 pages by 5 groups with 16 photos. i definately think one book is the way to go no matter what we do with the themes and stuff ...
November 09, 2010 @ 06:44:21
So its,
20 members in total
1 book
4 groups
5 members each group
4 pictures per person
when is the deadline?
November 09, 2010 @ 09:34:03
^ if the set up is like that, maybe we could have a dead line for each picture or for the first 2 pictures and then the last 2. so when the deadlines are due everyone can email them to the organizers and they can start sorting out the book in advance. just throwing out ideas.

Yup. As for the deadline, what do you guys think is an adequate date? February 2nd was the first date to come to mind. We get a solid 3 months to get the shots and the cash.

I like this idea aswell, we all just need to decide on deadlines...What if we determine deadlines by groups??
November 09, 2010 @ 11:23:52
are we still going to do themes?
i like the idea of seeing how the different photographers interpret their group's theme
November 09, 2010 @ 12:30:28
+1 on themes... dont think of it as a restriction or a limitation like what ^jaco said i just want to see 'idea of seeing how the different photographers interpret their group's theme' blushing

plus on the book it wouldnt be clutter of random pictures..
November 09, 2010 @ 13:01:08
You need to decide also if you're gonna have it all colour or if b&w photos are allowed also. Same with film and digital because, depending on the themes, it could look as if the photos have just been thrown together with no thought if you have mixtures of all of the things i just mentioned.
November 09, 2010 @ 13:07:23
I'm not knocking themes, I just don't want EVERYONE to do one theme. It'd be more interesting if each group had their own theme rather than 20 people doing the same thing.
November 09, 2010 @ 13:28:49
^I think that's what everyone was thinking, but the themes could be somewhat linked like emotions or even something a bit more ambitious like stages in life (birth/new life, childhood etc.).

yeah i think a general direction divided into more individual themes would be a good idea
November 09, 2010 @ 14:24:12
I guess just discuss with your group what theme you guys want to do. As for my group, i'm down for whatever guys lol
November 09, 2010 @ 14:39:00
we should have group threads lol, that would be a better way to communicate rather htan pm's or crowded shit
November 09, 2010 @ 14:41:56
I can set up a gmail where the pictures can be send to and use it to make the tumblr page to dump the pictures. let me know
November 09, 2010 @ 14:51:14
Still in, what do you think the total price will be? Also, I'm kinda more of a freestyle guy, but we'll see how it plays out. This could be really fuckin dope.

Check the last page for prices &
Kinda off topic but Props for those OF shots last night.
