ONE WEEK ONLY

posted November 20th, 2017
Done all the competitions and challenges and waiting to see if your photo makes it for voting? Is your phojo doing a now-you-see-it-now-you-don't drama with you?

Well, then, let's try this new challenge; it's new in name at least. However, this is not a challenge where our peers choose the winner. The only competition is yourself, therefore, everyone is a winner. It is aimed at claiming back our absentee phojos as well as challenge ourselves with topics that we avoid doing because we just don't like doing it, or we're just not too motivated to put in the time and the effort.

The concept is simple: a prompt for each day of the week. Seven prompts, seven photographs. One week of bliss or one week of piss, depending on how you feel about the daily prompts. Interpret the prompts as you and your camera see them. Do the whole week or just pick the days you feel like doing. And if you're in hiatus at the moment, try playing along for the week, why don't you!

If you think that this is similar to the one night stand challenge, you think correctly. It is inspired by Jerry's One-Night Stand challenge, however, I can't use that title as there is an implied proprietary/ownership to Jerry. So we'll call this One Week Only. After the week's done and dusted, we move on with our photographic life.

So here are the daily prompts chosen randomly:

Monday - Motion (panning or ICM or whatever your notion of motion is)

Tuesday - High key still life

Wednesday - Food photography

Thursday - Long exposure (silky water, light trails, ghostly images)

Friday - Lots of bokeh (embrace the shallow dof)

Saturday - Close up architecture

Sunday - Panorama

Let's start tomorrow, Monday, November 20 until Sunday, November 26. You may interchange the prompts and days as you wish, or according to your schedule or mood. You may process or post SOOC, it's all your choice. Of course, you may also tag your photos for other challenges.

We will tag our photos owo-1

And while we're at it, let's give kudos to ourselves and give each other shoutouts if there is a particular photo or two you actually like (whether it's another photographer or yourself, why not?) and post them here.

Come play along!

Sounds like fun. But for us...holiday week...I'm thinking to switch "food" to Thursday? Well, I'll be baking pies Wednesday night, that may work out.

Sounds fun, and I like that we can interchange prompts/days. I need a poke with a sharp stick once in a while.
posted November 20th, 2017
@featherstone26 - haha! the sharp stick is no longer acceptable these days, so let this be your poke. looking forward to your photos.
posted November 20th, 2017
Oh this sounds fun - I'm in!
posted November 20th, 2017
@summerfield Okay, a dull stick works just as well. :-)

I'll try to give a go. With Thanksgiving on Thursday I may have to shoot a few on the same day and fill them in though.

sounds good...bad weather and the Thanksgiving holiday is making photography tough! will give it a try!!! Thanks!
posted November 20th, 2017
This sounds like fun, Vikki. I have missed seeing Jerry and his 'one night stand' challenge. Hopefully I can manage to fulfill the whole brief. Going to save the prompts on my calendar right now!
posted November 20th, 2017
I have been off of competitions and a bit of a stranger her on 365Project but I think I will give this one a try.
posted November 20th, 2017
Nice of @kali66 to tag me! This sound like fun and will be my first challenge. It’s Thanksgiving week so being able to interchange days & prompts is a huge help. It’ll be interesting to see what I can come up with! πŸ€”πŸ“·

Thanks Kali @kali66 for the tag. I will try to give it a go. As I'm away for business two days, I probably have to juggle the days & prompts a bit.
posted November 20th, 2017
Good initiative! And thanks to @kali66 for including me. I have a huge gap to fill but maybe this will be a pace maker challenge!
posted November 20th, 2017
hmmm maybe! kali told me - but i have never done a ICM shot - motion for today! lets'see - good idea tho as taking photos has slipped from my daily life
posted November 20th, 2017
@kali66 it was a one week challenge, publicised to me by Vikki, that openned my eyes to more than pointing and clicking and that photography has genres. Will share with my friends too!! Thasnks kali for nudge
posted November 20th, 2017
perfectly! let's play! Thanks Kali @kali66 for the tag.
posted November 20th, 2017
Yeah, Vicky! Thanks for rekindling this challenge. Count me in.
posted November 20th, 2017
This is a good idea and I think it is nice to get a challenge for inspiration. I hope I remember to make a shot every day.

OK here we go! I'll see what I can come up with.

Thanks for including me, Vikki. I will try this. I don't know about some of them, but part is better than none. After all ... I am the judge.
posted November 20th, 2017
Brilliant idea. My phojo has gone AWOL and needs rounding up. Thanks to @pistache for spreading the word.

Thanks,Vicky, for doing this! I'm in!

@paracosmia - whatever gets us through, lilia. thanjs.

@houser934 - aces, kathryn!

@granagringa - that's great, Madeline. thanks.
posted November 22nd, 2017
I'm fairly new to contests, so please bear with me.Does it have to be shot the day of the contest? Or can it be from another day? And can it be posted on a different day since it is now already the 22nd?
posted November 22nd, 2017
@mbrutus - yes, yes and yes. it is not really a contest but consider it more of a self-challenge. it shouldn't stress you out, the idea is to learn if one of the items is not what you normally do. so come, join in!

Sorry Summerfield - got my days a bit mixed up - blaming old age!! It's a beaut activity though - really enjoying it. Cheers Rob
posted November 24th, 2017
I'm really enjoying this challenge since most days are taking me out of my comfort zone. I'm also taking advantage of the Ok to mix up the days. We're expecting rain on Sunday so I thought that'd be a perfect day for me to play with the bokeh technique.
posted November 25th, 2017
@summerfield This has really perked my phojo up, thank you!
posted November 26th, 2017
@robz - it's okay, the idea is to enjoy it, and glad you are enjoying this challenge. thanks.

@teresamaro - that's the purpose of this challenge - to test our comfort zone and at the same time learn and enjoy what we learn. thanks.

@fbailey - happy for you and that's the idea, right? thanks.
