So, here's what I'm thinking.

First I need a list of everyone who is interested- Please write your name here.

Second I need a list of possible ideas. Strobist, Nature, People, etc, etc, etc, that about 3 people can participate in and have a good time.

It will be up to the people that are participating to organize a time and place to shoot, and then they will present at a DPG meeting (on a computer or print) what they have done!

I'm seeing this as a monthly thing, such as the contest.

Suggestions, ideas welcome!

List-
1 Brian (hbrstudios)
2 Jake (jake.saari)
3 Aaron (Moeview is Aaron Molina)
4 Shawn (Shawn T.)
5 Laramie (lcarlson)
6 Randall (the randeeze)
7 Justin (sharksurfer)
8 Josh (manley.josh)
9 Brandon (brgthomas)
10 Amanda (pete (aka Amanda))
11 Anna (MistyPinePhotography)
12 Rich (duluthiscool)

Im in, ill come up with some ideas in a bit

Ideas. How about one photographer choose a very specific location and the other has to shoot at that location. They can shoot what they want but it has to be at that very location. Challenging is what I'm thinking. Shoot at an empty hallway at the U or the 3rd booth at the wendy's on London road?

I like the idea Aaron, but I think the interaction between members would be good instead of someone telling someone else what to shoot, end of story.
admin
Not telling them what to shoot but where. A challenge of sorts. They can shoot what they want.
admin
Go to Moe's house, drink his beer and take a picture of the empty bottles. I will take that assignment.

There are some pretty awesome ideas in this thread.

How does randomly picking 3 names, first one is the spot decider, and the other 2 have to go shoot it sound?

I would love to attend...providing work isn't in the way...

a suggestion...I belong to the Northern Lights Camera Club, out of Spooner. We have a monthly meeting and each meeting after photo sharing, we vote on our favorite picture...when the votes are counted, the winner gets their picture published in the Spooner Advocate...maybe the Duluth paper or another one might be interested in an artsy kind of monthly...??? Just a thought.

good thought Misty- would you be willing to investigate further into that?

I think we should talk about this before we call the DNT. I get the impression that they are in transition and lots of laid off folks and they do have some photographers on staff that might not take well to this idea? Just a guess but we should approach with a good plan.
Also this is Laramie's deal and his input would be important but we cold consider this with the monthly theme?
MOD

I could see this happening more with the monthly theme-
Also, we don't have to just check with the DNT... There's the transistor, the weekly reader and others I'm sure.

There would be a much better chance of getting it published in a smaller paper.
Anna Merritt 10 years ago
for the NLCC, it is really about showing the art of photography, publicity about the club, the happenings, the shows going on, information for the public that the club would like to get out. I am not really sure how DNT or any of them work, as I don't subscribe and seldom read the newspapers…they seldom have local for me (I live in the middle of nowhere).
It could be something that could help the paper as in filling as small spot...the pictures would have to be something that looks great in b/w...this could help lots of the members get notice...listings of current "active" members and listing their businesses if they have them, web sites...the options...limitless...
It is something that would have to be talked about, looked into and a plan made...probably before we contact any of the papers.
I can offer to help…not lead as I work very odd hours/times and sometimes long days…Anna

The Northland Reader might be more game for publishing a picture. They tend to try and support the arts.

I have been trying to think of a public place in town (I am from Gordon), and the things I was thinking...hole in the wall bar, the Deck, the beach...then I was thinking...there are a lot of those kinds of pictures...when I opened this thread to make my last and final thoughts known...you said public bathroom...I laughed so hard...then I thought...ya, why not?

public bathroom/rest room/rest area...that kind of place
