Thread: 30 days of photos

  1. Ya'll have inspired me to go on an outing I wouldn't have done today. I'm getting ready to take the girls to lunch and ice cream at Amy's Ice Cream. Payton is all fancied up in a "wedding" dress (a dress she wore to a wedding) and a piece of tulle pinned on her hair to look like a fancy hat. She is fan-cy. Anyway, I'm off to do it - can't wait to take the pictures! Thanks for the inspiration! Much better than being in my cluttered and messy house with piles of laundry giving me guilty feelings!

  2. Wow, I was just checking out the flickr gallery and those photos are fabulous! I am a complete novice at this. I tend to take photos of my children (on automatic), that's it. The photo I posted yesterday (a scenery shot) was a stretch for me. But you ladies have totally inspired me with your subject matter. Today I'm going to try to find something that I never would have dreamed of photographing (in other words, something other than my children!). Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    And Heidi, I can't wait to see the shot of your little fairy princess! After all, those shots are my favorite!

  3. Count me in! I have seriously neglecting my blog and this gave me the kick in the pants that I needed! I'm sure my inlaws and long distance relatives thank you for this idea (one can never post enough pictures of grandkids, apparently!) haha!

    Thanks...I am loving all of your photos!
    Dawn... I couldn't figure it out either! And, I finally uploaded and I can't even remember exactly how I did it! LOL I think I had to go to my account and upload and then there was somewhere on that page to add it to the group. I'm sure there's a quick and easy way... Katrina!!! Can you help us, please???

  5. Chris, I'm still blogging mine. I just like the format - gives me more room for commentary (since I never shut up!)

    I'll try to remember to post to flickr too. I'm just having trouble adjusting to the flickr system for some reason? dunno.. old lady moment, I guess

    So cool that so many wonderful DDers are joining us! I am loving seeing everyone's photos! Such talent here... I am just blown away every day by the inspiration you all give us!

    I think I've added all of the bloggers to the list of links on my blog and my Google reader. Let me know if I've left you off, so I can add you and comment on your photos

  6. I'm posting to both places but I put more pictures on my blog - just one on flikr so I don't drown everyone else's photos.

    So excited to see everyone doing this! Thanks for the great idea Heidi!! I'm just getting back to my computer after a weekend away so let me regroup and regather and I'll help out with the upload to the group on Flickr.

    Just a note too -- you can upload to your blog directly from Flickr. It makes it super simple to do both things at once

    Be back soon!

    Ok...I'm going to assume those of you who were asking can get your photos uploaded to your own account.

    You will then need to:

    1. Join the 30DD group here http://www.flickr.com/groups/30dd/ (you can just join, there isn't a password or invite needed)

    2. Upload your photo to your account

    3. After it is uploaded you can see just your photo, across the top of the photo there is a list of actions you can take

    4. Select "send to group" and that should do it!

    5. For those of you bloggers out there you will notice a "blog this" option too, it takes a few steps to set it up the first time, but after that it is simple and speedy!

    Let me know if you have more questions

    Off to upload my own!

    Thanks Katrina for the "blog this" feature! That will make it easier, I am off to figure out the uploading to flickr next....and to catch up blogging this weekends photos!

  10. As a member of the flickr group (everyone is welcome BTW), I'm really enjoying the randomness of the photos. I like this 30 day commitment too. Just a note to people who are thinking of joining, this is for fun. Don't get hung up on taking a perfect photo. I read somewhere that the best way to become a better photographer is to take lots of pictures.
    So, here's your opportunity. I hope you'll join us!

    Thanks Katrina for your step by step instructions! I just figured that out last night-you'd think I would have seen this earlier!

    That's EXACTLY what I've been told to! I once read that many "pro's" consider themselves pros because they take about 300 photos per day! (and sometimes don't use any of them!)

    Loving the randomness too! Here's a sneak peak of a little of what our group has done!

    That was a really wonderful grouping you put together Katrina! I've been awed at the the postings, and it's so much fun seeing the everyday bits of everyone's lives!

    I'm going to check out your blog Sarah, and I'm glad you kept the links together!

    I am a terrible blogger, I only use it to place layouts for my family to see, and neglect the rest. You all have inspired me to do something more - at this moment Iím not sure what though.

  14. #74
    Wow, what wonderful photos. I know I'm a late but add me to the list of people joining the fun. Last week was a very emotional week for me, as a dear friend passed away and to top it off the day of his funeral it pounded the snow down and was freezing, so now I'm sick . I'm going to try and keep up.

  15. YAY just managed to get into Flickr!!!

    Katrina, fantastic pic of photos to show the fun randomness of our groups photos. I am really enjoying this challenge, thanks for setting up the group on flikr.

    Connie, I am so sorry for you loss. How terrible. I am glad you joined us in the challenge.

    Island Girl, show us some of your beautiful pictures of Bermuda

    Oh the pressure is on! I am going to try and make more of an effort to photograph something other than my kids! I am a novice with a point an shoot... just trying to understand the whole world of photography! Hopefully one day I can be as talented as you ladies!

    Love seeing the collage you put together Katrina. This has been so much fun for me, too. Learning is a wonderful thing.

    A few people had ask what lens I used to capture my finch photo. I just have a higher end point and shot camera, Olympus 510 UZ, 10x zoom. I purchased the 1.7x Tele conversion lens available for it and have been using it to get the close ups of the birds. My bird feeder is very close to my house, maybe 15 feet from my bedroom window and 5 from the bathroom. I have a stool I seat on and use the window seal to steady the camera, open the window and shoot tons of pictures. Out of 100, I may have 2 or 3 keeper, if I am lucky. Connie

    I loved your post, Connie... for two reasons!

    1. I loved hearing you use an Olympus point-n-shoot... I just replaced my Olympus 740Z w/10x zoom w/a Canon Digi Rebel XTi. While I LOVE my new camera, I managed to take some pretty dang good photos w/my point-n-shoot--even clear across a soccer field! I like people to understand that you don't HAVE to buy an expensive camera to get good shots... just a bit of understanding how the camera works and a bit of effort (you getting the extra lens and using that stool!) and you can take good photos!

    2. I also loved hearing that you took 100 photos and only got a couple of "keepers"! That's what it took for me to get my hummingbird photos (I did a layout w/them a few weeks ago)... I just kept going outside and trying different settings on the camera until I got it right! And, managed to get some decent shots!

    Congratulations Pattie! Don't feel so bad, more than a few of us didn't know what was where over at Flickr! I only found the download button after someone else asked in another group. I made sure to bookmark it.

    Pattie... that's a GREAT photo of Izzy! I wish I could get that "brightness" in my Kyna pics. I'm sure I've got the wrong setting somewhere! Oh, well... I'll just keep pluggin' along and someday will take great pics! P.S. LOVE the "graffiti" on your RED (not murky brown!) wall!

    I'm in ... This will be fun and a great incentive to keep me taking photos daily. I started posting to flickr last week so I'm all set up. My flickr account is ordinaryeverydayme.

  29. Hi all!
    I've been trying to keep up with my project 365 as well... and have been posting to flickr... so I'm going to join the group for sure.
    Thanks for the push!
