Photo Scav Hunt 3!!
Swap Coordinator:user4899 (contact)
Swap categories: Challenges  Miscellaneous  Art 
Number of people in swap:46
Last day to signup/drop:March 16, 2007
Date items must be sent by:April 6, 2007
Number of swap partners:1

If youve already joined in on this in past rounds -- you know how fun it is -- if NOT and your a shutter bug like I am (loves photography) -- then sign up and try this challenge.

It begins w/ a MASTER LIST of 15 random/common items -- things that you wouldnt normally take a photo of. You choose (at least) TEN and photograph them. Then send those actual prints/photos to ONE partner. Yes, this swap is open to everyone, worldwide.

We ALL start w/ the same list BUT... the angle and creativity of the end result is totally up to whos behind the lens!!

If your really into photography and have other photos that YOUVE taken within the last 12 mos -- that fit the list -- you may use those. Please send out good quality photos that your proud of and would like to recv. back -- if someone were sending them to you!

Please no offensive, suggestive or vulgar photos. Lets keep things G rated so we dont offend those -- that might get offended (religion, race, ethnic... etc etc wise).

Having the list up front you can start taking the pics as soon as you sign up... that way they are ready to go when partners are generated.

MASTER LIST: (choose at least 10) * something black and white * money * something wrinkled * something off-center (not centered in the middle/center of the photo.) * brick/s * a store you could max out your credit cards in * something sweet * something that tells time * the marquee (sign) outside of your local movie theatre that shows whats playing * a sign that shows how much people are paying for gasoline in your area * something that makes you happy * something BRAND NEW (recent purchase, still in packaging? w/price tag?... etc) * a lawn decoration/ornament * something that you use in the kitchen * a picture that YOU take of YOURSELF

There it is -- HAVE FUN!! BE CREATIVE!! Let the next HUNT begin!

Please have a good rating and a complete profile. I WILL CHECK UP -- if you have no rating... to make sure your a reliable swapper. Ive had probs the last 2 rounds w/ this -- so Im gonna HAVE to be a lil more strict. It happens.

When it becomes time to send please make sure to package your photos in sturdy and moisture proof packaging!

Any other ?s -- ASK!!

ooh way kewl, i would be in this swap if i had photo printing capabilities, i did a similar one for sending digital images via e mail, i saw some wonderful images,

i am posting to the forum because i wanted to point anyone interested in the direction of a new group i created on flickr called "god/dess is in the details"

its for those moments in life that sneak up on us in our seemingly mundane world that really help it all make sense, if you know what i mean then please goto flicrk and search groups for GOD7/DESS IS IN THE DETAILS, CLICK JOIN AND I WILL BE MOST HAPPY TO APPROVE YOU, PLEASE MENTION WHERE YOU FOUND THIS INVITE:)

most thankful, noel

user1011 03/13/2007 #

Hey! I was planning on sending 4x6 prints. Is that generally what's expected?

user5199 03/15/2007 #

I'm looking forward to this swap again, I just hope I get things in return!

user6855 03/16/2007 #

Can we use polaroids?

ladydy5 03/17/2007 #

Holly, coming to ya tomorrow. Interesting to find out how long it takes to reach you from Tennessee to Canada. Enjoyed your blog too. Like to know who I am sending things to.

user4899 03/24/2007 #

This swap is for 4x6 printed photos...ONLY!! Sorry I wasnt able to get online much this week to answer earlier -- other rounds have been done in the past for POLOROIDS only but not many signed up --

Hi Diane (I think you're Ladydy5) from TN. Pictures arrived yesterday. Thanks so much. I like the lawn ornaments and the movie theatre sign with all the big clouds behind it, very nice. Glad you liked my blog too.

cnvingltlbtch - your photos are on their way! Let me know when you get them...

girlonaglide 04/ 5/2007 #

Deb Brown -- Yours will be mailed out tomorrow! Talk about pushing the deadline! :( -Juli

ChristineMM 04/ 6/2007 #

Margaret W. in England your photos are going out today from me in USA.

Nerk76 thanks for hosting this swap. I had never done this type of swap before. It was a lot of fun, not just taking the photos but getting ideas for where I thought I could get interesting shots as well as being on the lookout for the items while out and about.

AngelFaeryKathleen 04/ 6/2007 #

Hi Nicole, Your photos are winging their way to you from New Zealand, not far to go, but with the great Easter shut down thay are more than likely to be sitting in the post box still!

bren 04/ 6/2007 #

graphics_cactus, your book of photos were mailed this afternoon.

HappyCactus 04/ 9/2007 #

I'll let you know when I get them...

Jess, your pics arrived today. Thank you, I really enjoy looking through them. What kind of paper did you print your self-portrait on? I really like the look of it. Thanks againg! :D

user5889 04/ 9/2007 #

Oh, Hi DD, just sent you a message, didn't see this before. Glad you liked the photos!! Wasn't it cool the way that picture came out on non-photo paper? I was just playing around with a piece of scrap paper (as you can see from the stamps on the back!). The paper is The Paper Source's Luxe cardstock in blush.

lottebees 04/11/2007 #

Marylen, you're pictures where send out tuesday. It could take a little while for them to get there...

ladydy5 04/11/2007 #

To Sleeping traveler: Today I received your album with the pictures you chose. That was very, very nice of you to do that and quite interesting choices too. Thank you so much with rate you with a plus.

HappyCactus 04/12/2007 #

Bren - I received your photos last night!! I love them, especially "wrinkled"! Thank you so much!

bren 04/12/2007 #

graphics_cactus You're welcome! I would have had double the wrinkles, but her brother smooths his face when he sees the camera. Glad you liked the pics!

AngelFaeryKathleen 04/20/2007 #

It rather looks as if I'm not getting anything for this swap. My partner marked as sent but is not longer a member of swap-bot.

girlonaglide 05/ 6/2007 #
