Drag to set position!

D_Snapper ADMIN September 23, 2016
This group has a wide variaty of members, but they all like the idea of being pushed out of their comfort zone (a little).
It is simple, Sign up, get coupled, get pushed, shoot (and edit), publish your work, get comments, re-start.
Invite friends! It's not fair holding out on them with all the fun! :)Don't forget to comment on photos! You wouldn't believe how encouraging that can be.

Group Description

Get Pushed!! - View this group's most interesting photos on Flickriver

This group presents a little twist to the "challenge" groups out there where a weekly or daily theme or challenge is announced to an entire group. This will be a bit more personal.

Here's the idea. You sign up. Others sign up. The group's admins pair you up. You then challenge your partner to shoot something different than he or she ordinarily shoots. And your partner also challenges you! You then have till the deadline to complete the challenge and post the picture to the group pool. With your picture you describe the challenge and how you met it! People comment on your picture and may even fave it. ;-)

The goal of this group is to (i) meet people you don't know, peruse their stream, and issue a challenge; and (ii) have people peruse your stream and "push" you to shoot outside of your comfort zone. Hence the group name "get pushed."

Challenges can be anything within reasonable limits. If someone shoots only flowers, challenge them to shoot a stranger. If someone shoots only selfies, challenge them to look outside themselves. If someone never shoots selfies, challenge them to look within... the possibilities are endless! However, keep in mind that everyone has the right to draw their own limits somewhere, so keep the challenges friendly and try to be accommodating.

When submitting your image, please give a description outlining what Push you were given.

Here's our basic schedule for each month:

1) Sign up any time you want!
2) Names are publlished (and sign up for the next round starts) when there are decent set of couples or after about 30 days.
3) Round Begins & Challenges are Issued
4) Start publishing your results
5) Header picture is selected from previous month's results and title will include reference to sign up process.

So, join, sign up in the sign up thread, and GET PUSHED!!

Group Rules

There are not too many rules, this is a relaxed group, however...

Challenges are not supposed to be embarrassing to the person being challenged. This group is meant to push boundaries, but not in a hurtful way. Please keep that in mind.
Refer to the home page for how the plan generally works.

For any photo in the group, a description of the challenge you received is required, preferably with a link to your push-partner and the group.

The admins/mods will kindly invite you to add a description of the challenge to your picture if this is missing (and a kind invite to join the next round) we will take the pictur out of the group after 1 or 2 days but allow reposting if it includes the push.

Spammers will be Banned. End of discussion.

But most of all, because this is an awesome group; have fun... and enjoy the awesomeness.
