Week Six Theme: #Commitment

#52weeks2012 #6of52weeks2012

This week we're announcing a completely voluntary theme for those who want a little extra for week six's submission.

The official definition for commitment is: The act of committing or the state of being committed.

But it is up to you to come up with your own interpretation of what it is. Remember, this can still be a self portrait, an abstract object, scene, or whatever you'd like. There are a few of you committed to certain subjects, such as everyday objects, self portraits, and more.

Examples

If a calendar you use helps you commit to your week's goals, maybe that could be your shot.

If you are really hitting the gym every day as your resolution, a self portrait of you working out or doing your thing that week could be your commitment themed submission.

Again, totally voluntary, you don't have to do it, but for those who are interested, let's try it out!

Fourth Week Submissions

Just a friendly reminder to everyone about the 4th week submissions deadline tonight. Keep them coming, you guys are doing a wonderful job.

Also great to see how everyone is leaving comments and engaging with each other within the circles!

I'm considering doing a theme for the first week of each month, just to give you guys a little more of a challenge. Thoughts?

+Arthur Change a little inspiration couldn't hurt, for some it might be that little extra push to get out and shoot for the week.

52weeks2012 Updates

After the first week of the 52 weeks challenge, I have gotten a lot of great feedback from everyone and have a few quick updates.

- Tag your photos with this page as if 52 Weeks Challenge 2012 is actually in the photo. This will allow all the photos to be seen in the Photos page.
- I will manually tag all photo submissions with that week's number when curating, for example #1-52weeks2012 for the first week. Therefore you can do a quick search for that tag and only see that week's submissions. If you're clever and want to help me out (hehe) you can tag your next submission with #2-52weeks2012
- Every week I'll randomly pick a photo to re-share out to everyone, rather than re-sharing every single photo.

Also, sorry for this week's delay. I actually had some real life emergencies to attend to, but now all is good and I'm back to my regular schedule.

52 Weeks Challenge 2012

This is the official thread for our 52 Weeks Challenge of 2012! I will keep this thread up to date with the details of the basic rules and how to join in.

What
Every year we have 52 weeks. For every week of the year, the challenge is to take one photo (self-portraits encouraged) that describes your week. For some, this will include a caption of your photo's story, and any other tidbits of what you learned from that week's self-portrait

When
Starting January 1st, 2012, your photo by every Monday night. Tuesday I will curate and post results. The first Monday to post by will be January 9th for the week of 1 - 9th. You are more than welcome to post before Monday, but that will be the deadline for getting included in the curation.

How
Most will be doing self-portraits, but I have heard a few that would rather do a different theme (which is totally cool! but I do encourage self portraits for this challenge). Some tips: use a tripod to set up, self-timers / remote triggers / and interval shooting would be good ways to do it. More on techniques later.

Who
I will be creating a circle soon with everyone involved. Look out for a post about that soon. Everyone is invited, but please join before January 1st, 2012! To join, simply leave a comment that you're in and I'll be sure to include you.

I've done it once before, and while boring if you do it alone, having others pushing you and giving you ideas is really the best part of it. I learned so much about it, and got a bit more comfortable being in front of the lens.

Let's get out of our comfort zones and push ourselves to do it. I'm hoping to get a tight group to work on this! We can give each other tips and suggestions, as well as motivation and raw peer pressure.

Guidelines
- Use hashtag #52weeks2012
- Follow this Google Plus Page (for official announcements and curation): https://plus.google.com/b/102367459153230350361/102367459153230350361/posts
- Post every Monday night for the previous week
- If you don't have the ability to post your shot, you can definitely back post (if you're out of town for example without internet)

Will there be another 52 week challenge for 2013 since I was unable to start at the very beginning or can I still join in since I see that we can back post?

Week Five

After a month, it's amazing to see all of you guys still going strong on this 52 week challenge. Keep it up! Remember our week 5 submission deadline is coming up tomorrow night =)

As we discussed earlier, we're going to be kicking a theme for you guys this coming week, in case you want to spice up your submission (week 6). I'll be posting the theme up shortly.

Week 1 - #52weeks2012

Congratulations to everyone who completed the first week of the 52 weeks challenge! Thanks for using the correct hash tags and tagging the 52 weeks google plus page in the photos as well.

I (+Arthur Chang) have done my best to tag everyone's first week's photos with the 1of52weeks2012 hash tag. You can now view all the photos here: #1of52weeks2012

Next week, try to post using #2of52weeks2012 along with our usual #52weeks2012 hash tag. It will help me find them to curate.

I have also updated the circle with everyone who has posted their first photo! Thanks everyone for joining in!

I will be removing those who have missed out and have not notified me that they will be continuing on with the project.

This week's submissions were so amazing! Keep them coming!

First week of 2012 is coming to an end! I hope you guys had a lot of fun getting your shots together.

I've seen a wide range of photos, from self portraits to flowers, plants, landscapes and more! Even combinations of all of the above.

I will be splitting the circles up into those who are doing self-portraits, and those who are not. Please keep posting what you like, but we will do some separation such that it will be clearer who's doing what.

Suggestions / Comments directed at self-portraits can be a lot different in most cases, which is why I am prompted to put in some organization there.

And unfortunately, and for the sake of keeping things clean, I will be dropping those who have not participated this first week. If you want / need to catchup, please let me know so we don't lose you!

I will begin curation of the photos starting tonight and ending it tomorrow. Please post and include the #52weeks2012 hash tag before midnight!

And huge props to everyone that has already posted, even those who posted early last week!

The format of the curation will be evolving as I find the best way to do it.

Cheers to a great first week!

Hey Guys! Sorry I lagged a bit, but had a few emergencies the last few days. Everything is OK though, so I should be getting back on track.

I will be sharing the photos using the google plus page account this afternoon =) So look out for them!

In the meantime, check out #52weeks2012 to see them unfiltered.
