Hello Shutter Me Up Group, Since this is such a fun and sharing group of friends at Shutter Me Up, I thought a fun end of the year swap would be...... My Year In Photographs. For this swap we will be going through all the photos we have taken for the year and picking at least 1 for each month to share with our partners. We will be giving our partners a little look in to our life. We hope each of you join and share your theme/ year with each of us.

For This Swap

  • The theme is "My Year In Photos" .

  • Please remember the theme is open to your partners interpretation.

  • Don't pick just any photographs for this swap but pick one that was taken during that month (if possible) that shares with your partner the highlight in your life for that particular month. Did you buy a new home or car, did you take a trip to somewhere you had never visited, did you make a new friend, did someone special in your life celebrate a birthday, did you learn something new, for examples. Not every month will be filled with super great moments, the photo could be something as simple as photographs you found beautiful while taking a walk in your neighborhood. This swap is all about sharing your life.

  • When sending your photograph to your partner list each photograph for example as: May: Planted new flowers for my garden. This way your partner will know what month the photo was taken in and what the highlight of the month was for you.

  • You will have three swap partners that you will email 1 photo for each month of the year (total of 12) to in .jpg format. Please be sure to attach your photograph to your email. Sometimes if the photograph is just insert into the body of the email, not everyone will be able to view it in this manner.

  • You are free to email more than 1 photograph subject per month if you wish but only 1 is required.

  • Please send a narrative to your partner about each photo sent.

  • All photographs sent must be photographed by you.

  • You may alter your photo if you wish. (i.e., photoshop, PSP, etc.)

  • Your photo may be in black and white or in color. It is sender's choice.

  • Please do not send links to online albums or blogs for your partners to view your photograph. Your photo MUST be attached in your email.

  • If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or ask in the comments below. I will come back and check often!

  • This is a GROUP swap only. Please join us at: Shutter Me Up to participate in this swap if you are not already a member. We'd love to have you!

  • If you wish to upload your photos to our Flickr Group, you must request to become a member on Flickr. Only members of the group can upload photos there. You are able to upload two (2) photos per week at the Flickr Group so you will have to pick your 2 favorites of all the photos sent for this swap.

  • Please remember to rate your partner upon receiving the swap.

  • This swap will be angeled if need be but I am hoping that will not be the case.

  • More time has been given for this email swap due to the number of photos.

Most of all, have fun! :)

Great idea! I need to look through my photos first to make sure I have something from each month. I seemed to have clusters of some months with more interesting happenings than others.

It's ok that not all months are full of interesting things....I had a couple months that nothing really happened after I got looking so I figure for one of the months I will add a photo of a craft I made and the other month I will have to think about. If someones life was interesting all year around I am jealous ;-).

Love this idea and can't wait to see what other people send~ :)

I was looking through photos today and it's hard to narrow some of my months down! I want to send tons of pictures, but have narrowed some months down to 2 or 3 photos max. :x

I agree @girl0in0aki it is hard to narrow them down. Thanks for joining.
