Get Pushed Week 338 - Monday Jan 14 to Sunday Jan 20

January 12th, 2019
for newcomers to "get pushed", i've posted a separate thread with some FAQs about the get pushed challenge... you can find it here:



if you do not get a challenge by end of day Monday, please let me know and i will do my best to get things sorted...

If you do not get in touch with your partner by Monday, I will take your name off the list until you let me know that you are back and WILL be playing... this is not meant to be punitive - it is just intended to minimize disappointment for those who are playing consistently :)



-- if i left your name ON by mistake, left your name OFF by mistake, or made a MISTAKE in spelling your name, please let me know by responding to this thread and i'll fix things up...

-- if you are interested in joining this challenge, respond in this thread and i will add you to the list... if it's not too late in the week, you'll likely be able to play this week...

-- if you find you must bow out of the game after i've posted the list, please let me know ASAP in this thread, and please tag your partner... i will do my best to find a them a new partner...

-- if you don't get a challenge by late afternoon Monday, let me know in this thread... PLEASE do not suffer in silence! even if you're ok with not playing this week, the person paired with your partner next week may be very disappointed... letting me know about inactive players is the only way i can keep the list up-to-date...


One of the key aspects of "get pushed" is that we get "pushed" out of our photographic comfort zones... this means that you need to find something that is a CHALLENGE for your partner...

Look thru the recent months of their project and come up with something they don't seem to have done, or have indicated struggling with... it could be a type of subject, a compositional technique, a particular camera setting, use of light, anything... as long as it is something they don't seem to have done, or done much of...

If you're paired with someone who appears very experienced and accomplished, give them a concept challenge - eg.: interpret a word (something a bit intangible like "silence", or "ambiguous"... not a thing like "animal" or "toy")...

Looking thru your partner's albums needn't take a lot of time... but it is very much appreciated when this effort is invested...



Explain what your challenge was when posting your shot. This helps the previous week's winner when they are choosing the week's finalists. And if someone is cruising the photos with a "get pushed" tag, they like to see what the challenge was when looking at your photo.


Week 338 Dates

-- Find your partner and issue a challenge
-- Monday Jan 14 thru Sunday Jan 20 - take a picture (or pictures) in response to the challenge issued to you, and post it with the tag: Get-Pushed-338 and comment on the photos taken in response to your challenge
-- Monday, Jan 21 - the winner of week 337 will pick 5 finalists for a vote


How to play:


1. Find your partner from the list below and click on their name to get to their profile

2. Browse through the last couple of months of photos to get a feel for what they shoot and don't shoot etc.

3. Post an introduction on their last photo, and also issue the challenge you are setting.


4. You have until midnight next Sunday, to take and post your shot or shots.

5. When posting your shot WRITE A SHORT DESCRIPTION about
-- who challenged you,
-- what the challenge was,
-- what you found hard about it etc.

6. Make sure to tag your shot for the challenge.... Get-Pushed-338

7. Tag your challenger in a COMMENT (not just your write-up). You MUST tag your partner in a separate comment... tagging them in your write-up of your photo is not sufficient as it will not result in them getting a notification...


8. it is nice to visit the photo that was made in response to your challenge and offer some comments and maybe even some constructive criticism...

9. On the Monday after the challenge is over, the winner of the previous week will pick 5 finalists for a vote, this can be based purely on their fav photos, who they felt best met the challenge etc, etc.

Happy trails!!!!

January 12th, 2019

@30pics4jackiesdiamond @shannejw Tx... I’m on my phone and can see it now... but can’t see it on laptop or iPad... so odd!!

@northy I see it! That’s what happened to me when I was looking up the tag challenge again! I was on desktop when I couldn’t see it!
January 15th, 2019
@northy Hey Northy would you be so kind to remove me from the list starting next week. I’m finding myself short on time to get stuff done
January 16th, 2019
Please skip me next time. I love this game, but I don't think I will be able to rise to the challenge for week 339. I'm back in for 340.
January 16th, 2019
@jakes certainly...
@tdaug80 ok - just let me know when you're ready to be added back...
January 16th, 2019
@northy I just need to skip one week. Put me back in for week 340.

@la_photographic @northy - Just wanted to make a quick note that I'm running behind this week, but things have settled now and I should be able to pick up my camera again soon! Had a kitty that ended up needing surgery, so been dealing with that and now she's all taken care of and in recovery. :)
