Hello Shutter Me Up Friends, I thought I would add a postal theme for January to give everyone a head start. One of our newest members @Jjean wanted to revisit the "Photo Scavenger Hunt" since she missed out on the last one. This postal swap will take a little longer to put together, so the signup and send date will be a little longer. Feel free to start as soon as you sign up for the swap. For this swap you given 16 subjects to pick from and you are required to photograph 7 of the 16 subjects to send to your partner (See List Below)......... Each subject is open to your interpretation.

Some of the subjects was taken from our Shutter Me Up group forum and I would like to thank @Lauriez for many of her great ideas. If you have any ideas for upcoming swaps please feel free to post them in our forum.

Requirments / Information:

  • The prefered size for your photographs is 4"x6" (10x15 cm) if printed as a single but collages will be allowed as long as the photos are clear for your partner to view. Each photo MUST be printed on photo paper (not copy paper). The photograph may be printed at a photo lab or using a home printer.

  • Sign the back of the photo, give it a title.

  • Tell a little about each photo either on the back of the photo itself or in a letter to your partner.

  • Photographs must be taken by you.

  • 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!

Can this be a collage of the seven items in one picture with explanationof each picture either on back of 4 x 6 or in a letter form? or do you prefer separate photos. I just thought it would look artistic to do a collage for those who can do that and postage would be less if international.

@ladydy5 I think that is a great suggestion and I am editing the swap to include collages. I am all for saving on the postage. Thanks
