Description:

This is a "themed-photo" swap. I will be doing random swaps like these if there is an interest. I started a group on here called "Shutter Me Up" listed under "Common Interest", if you would like to join the group, too.

The idea is that I will be giving you a theme for a photograph to take. The theme could be anything from an object, item, person, animal, certain color, etc... You will then have a few days to take the photo and email it to your partners. There is no right or wrong type of photograph. It is up to your interpretation of the theme. This is a quick turn-around time for the swap, so please start thinking of the theme once you sign up and get your photograph ready.

** PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ATTACH A JPG PHOTO IN YOUR EMAIL!! DO NOT JUST SEND A LINK TO A BLOG OR FLICKR ALBUM FOR YOUR PARTNER TO VIEW UPLOADED PICTURES!!! THIS WILL NOT COUNT AS A COMPLETED SWAP!**

I also started a flickr abum to upload everyone's photo if you are willing to send me (cc) your photos in the swap. I think it would be fun to see what everyone came up with and that way everyone can see all the entries as well.

** FOR THIS SWAP **

Since it has been so hot this summer in the U.S. (at least), I will go with a summer theme. The theme will be called "SIZZLIN' SUMMER".

Since this is an International swap and it may not be summer where you live, you may use a previous photo you have already taken, if you wish. There will be lots of themes coming up in the future that you will be able to take new photos of! Hope this works for everyone!

New members are welcome to join this swap.

Have at it :)

Hi there,

I have a suggestion: If you create a group on Flickr, we can all add our own photos, so they remain part of our photostream.

If we email them to you to upload, they become part of your photostream, with no link/credit to us, the photographers :-(

Xx

Great suggestion!!! I am not too familiar with Flickr, so I had no idea you could do something like this. Can you send me a message and give me more info on how to create a group there? Thanks! I definitely would want each person to be credited with their own photos. Thanks!!!

I've PM'd you :-)
