What I'm proposing, and looking for people to help out with, is an M&A photo group. This group would share, critique, learn and get excited about photography. Preferably I'd like to keep the group mostly photos, as that's what I deal mainly with and think I'd be easier to work with for turnaround time, accessibility, etc.
I know there are threads out there about best film photography, "critique these shots", etc., but I'd like to do something different.
Following guidance from Ted Forbes and his YouTube channel "The Art of Photography", I think it could be very beneficial to do "assignments" or "projects" every 2-4 weeks. I know the ski season is coming to a close for many of us, but these assignments don't have to be specific to ski photography.
I know there are lots of professionals on here, as well as many amateurs that both love to shoot photos. In my mind, it would be awesome to bridge this gap. Along with this, it would be very helpful for the pro's to help out with creating ideas for assignments, critiques, etc.
For reference this is the photo assignment series by Ted Forbes (who I'm basing this off of.)
Let me know what you all think. Any and all comments and suggestions are welcome. Excited to get this running!
