This will be a serial swap consisting of 24 rounds (at least to start). Here's the idea:
To start, you'll purchase a disposable camera with at least 24 exposures and take ONE interesting photo on it. Then stick it in a padded envelope and send it off to your partner. When you receive a new camera you'll do the same thing again- take a single photo and send it off. Be sure to write your name and address somewhere on the camera. Since most disposable cameras have some text or design on the back, it might be best to write your address on a small piece of paper and tape it onto the camera- Just make sure it's readable.
The photo can be of anything you want- an interesting-looking building, your next door neighbor, flowers in your garden, what you ate for breakfast, or anything else. Just in case you hit a mental block, I'll set a general theme for each round. This rounds theme is change . I thought this would be fun with new years resolutions in full effect, but you can capture anything related to change.
I'm sure this goes without saying, but I'll say it anyways: PLEASE don't take photos of anything inappropriate or potentially disturbing. There are plenty of 'safe' photo subjects out there. With that said, feel free to get creative and think outside the box. Set up objects in a unique way, play with lighting and backdrops, get a friend to model for you, have fun, and EXPERIMENT!
By the end of 24 rounds of this swap your original camera will be returned to you. Once you get it developed you'll have a whole set of unique photographs from 24 different photographers. Since this is more time-intensive that some swaps, no one with any recent unexplained low ratings or new swappers with fewer than 5 type 3 swaps will be allowed to participate.
Please feel free to message me or comment here with any questions or concerns or if you're having difficulty with the theme. Have fun :)
