So I think it would be really cool for everyone to take pictures throughout their day. What they do, what they eat, who they see, etc. We all do it on the same day and then post up our photos. It would be cool to see what each person does in just 24 hours.
We should plan it during the week of voting on the photo contest, so we're not all out trying to shoot for that and for this.
that would be immensely cool. I'd participate based on when the day would be. To be honest, none of my days when I'm still at school are particularly interesting or photo-worthy. A summer day when i work however could be cool
Why doesn't everyone make a thread in the cult as their own "diary" and then can update it whenever they want. that way if you have an interesting day you want to photo document you can do it, and then we'll also have mandatory diary days too.
The date for NS Photo Diary Day will be Wednesday, March 16th
So I've gotten a few questions about this, and my intent behind this project is as follows..
Don't necessarily try and make cool shit happen that day. Not saying if you get the chance to go skiing or meet the Pope to not do it. Rather, go along with your day as if it were a normal day, but document it. From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to bed, and everything in between. Go to school? Bring your camera. Doctors appointment? Bring your camera. Sitting on your ass on ns bored out of your mind? Take pictures! Get the idea? No matter what you do, even if it seems so boring and mundane, document it. I picked this Wednesday because I know some of us will be in school, some will be on spring break, and some will be just going on with their everyday life. (Next one will be a Saturday or something cool)
Now, if you would like, you can make these pictures as interesting as you want. You can 'stage' a shot if you want (like self portraits and such), and also have people pose for photos. Do whatever you want! Make school interesting if you want, or make it seem as boring as it really is. This can either take a very editorial or very photojournalistic turn depending on what you want to do with it. It's your day, it's your photography, make it what you want.
Photos will then get posted up to this thread. If you are shooting digital and want to post them up the next day, go right ahead. If you are shooting film and need a little extra time, that's cool too!
I'll bump up this thread in a week if it doesn't stay at the top to remind everyone. Also, if you're a part of the cult then you will get a message.
You say don't go out of our way to make our day interesting, just shoot our day as mundane as it is, but then you go on to say jk if you want you can stage a whole bunch of stuff and shoot portraits and anything you want.
Maybe I'm unfamiliar with the ritual of a diary, but I thought you were supposed to tell it how it is. Not make shit up.
"any one have a brazzers account i can use for like 20 mins?"
I have a question...I didn't thoroughly read everything yet. But...the day you want everyone to do their diary is on the 16th? Cause that's midweek, and I have work, so I wouldn't be able to do anything but a picture leaving in the am. I can't take a camera into my job, and it would be super boring for the viewers, haha.
If so, can I do it on a weekend, where I have a more interesting life? haha
16th is good with me. To all the people saying it should be on a different day or spread over a couple day, I think you're missing the point. We want to see every everyone's photos from one day only, even if it's a boring day we still want to see what you come up with!
Yeah, my point was that I can't do it on a Wednesday because I work in an office where it wouldn't be allowed. Not that it would be boring, I just can't do it. I think maybe giving the week before to catch your day, and all post on the same day is good. I dunno, its cool whatever way. If I can't do it then I can't. I'm sure there will be more.
Yeah that's cool too! I mean people can really shoot it whenever they want and post it up here. Just thought it would be cool for all of us to do the same day and see what we all do on the exact same day
