EmmaPaperclip 04/ 5/2011 #

Hi....I'd like to request that more photo categories be added to the list. Like, how about something green or something blue? Perhaps a flower or an insect....maybe a large animal...what about a macro shot or a landscape or a panoramic wide angle? For example, I have a shot of a bus though it's not one of my better photos, and ditto the street sign. Thanks for your consideration.

Gofeen 04/ 5/2011 #

Do these photos have to be newly taken for the swap or can you send photos you have already taken that fit the theme?

Gofeen 04/ 5/2011 #

I adore that little puppy! Tell us more about him/her pleeease.

Mugsie 04/ 5/2011 #

I love this swap, it will be so much fun.....thank you!

PeNeLoPe 04/ 5/2011 #

ohhh i just had to sign up for this one too :) emma.. the point is that its like a scavenger hunt, the organiser gives us the themes, we pick some we like.. im sure therell be more in this series :) (hint hint at shells ;) )

shellsajerseygirl 04/ 6/2011 #

(Emma) Check out the first swap in this series.Four Photo's and A Note(swap#1) The list is a bit different from this swap. Here it is. A door,A photo with four legs,A body of water,A tree or trees,Something old,A flower or flowers,Something Nature,Feet,An old house or barn,Something that is the color red,Your family pet,A postal box. For each New Swap I will add different things we can photograph.As long as we have swappers signed on to swap.I would like to continue hosting them.

RonnieRose 04/10/2011 #

I think an idea would be to have a list like 4 differnt flowers all the same color. or a list of still life objects. or a whole list that all pictures be taken with the same color theme. Like a red house, a red door, a red flower... etc

shellsajerseygirl 04/10/2011 #

(RonnieRose)Good idea.Thanks. When I put together the next swap I will keep your ideas in mind.And most likely use one of them.I am lending towards Red.But it will have to be more then four pixs. and a note.

MonikaK 04/19/2011 #

I love this swap idea! I hope you will host #4, #5, etc.

paperlover 04/28/2011 #

I would like to add to the list: a child

shellsajerseygirl 04/28/2011 #

OK ,That's fine with me. I will add it above. I love photographing children.I Just know a lot of people do not like sharing their photos of children with total strangers.So this was why I did not list.I have shared my pixs of children.I just do not have any face shots. I respect my families privacy by doing my pixs that way.

shellsajerseygirl 05/10/2011 #

My blog needs to be updated.Have not be on their to do that recently.Promise as soon as I have free time.I have a few photos I would like to add.Have a great day swappers :)

Kessie 05/13/2011 #

Do people object to photographs being 'photoshopped', E.g. to remove something annoying from the background, or to add a special effect such as making it sepia coloured? Personally I think that sort of thing improves a photo, but I understand that some people are purists who beleive that the image should not be tampered with... Any thoughts or guidelines about this?

bevmac 05/15/2011 #

I'd like an answer to the photoshop question also

shellsajerseygirl 05/16/2011 #

Hello; (Kessie) (bevmac) Good Question.I did write in the description above. camera and imagination .

Sure why not. Now when rating partners, fellow swappers please keep in in mind... As long as the swap specs, are met.. Such explained in swap description above.That's all it takes to Rate a 5.

Swap Description ......Read On... (You'll need to take four photos.Chosen from the list. After you have taken your pictures.Please write a nice note what inspired you to take the photo's. And please write on the back of each photo, from which subject from the list it is. EXAMPLE:Lets say the picture is of a strawberry. Write on the back of photo.Something that is the "color red" - .

Hope I answered your questions. Happy Swapping :)

I am trying to cover all bases. So when its time for swappers to rate, their will not be any issues. Thanks, :)

shellsajerseygirl 05/16/2011 #

This should be a good swap.All about senders choice. Hope I cleared up the questions here. Thjs swap gives the swapper a lot of freedom, to be creative. And it is not based at all on the partners profile.

Moregan 05/18/2011 #

I was going to suggest adding pets. :) This is a pretty fun swap idea, btw! I find it a great photographer's scavenger hunt.

shellsajerseygirl 05/21/2011 #

Moregan I am now getting ready to assign partners for this swap. I will have to add pets to another swap in the series. Thank You :)

earthnk 05/30/2011 #

Is it okay to write on the FRONT of the photos? I hope so because I"m having fun with printed text on the front of the pics. Also should we send one of each picture as in 1 door pic 1 tree pic etc? not 3 of the same type pic? just wondering...

shellsajerseygirl 05/30/2011 #

Thanks for asking :) Sure write on them.That's a lot of fun.

...Four photos from the list.Meaning send four photos that are picked from the list. Sample: tree or trees count as 1, cow counts as 2, street sign would be your 3rd. & let say for your 4th, chose to photograph a horse.Now that is picking 4 things from the list as stated above.To take four photo's of 4 street signs or of 4 cows.Is not picking four things from the list to photograph.The requirements would have not met for this swap. Four photo of one of each from the list is whats required.Sure hope I helped to clear that up a bit for. Have a great day,

dardarbinx 06/ 1/2011 #

Hi fellow swappers....I have been holidng off on sending anything because I don't know how many of you are aware that Canada is up for a postal strike...they've submitted their 72 hour notice and tomorrow at midnight is the deadline it they don't come to an agreement, and so far its not lookin good. I heard something about a rotation but don't know any details on it because they are being sooo hush hush about it. Anyway, i just wanted to suggest that when it comes time to rate your partner, please check to see if your partner is in Canada, if they are and you have not recieved your mail yet, please consider that there may be a strike I will post another comment tomorrow, when I hear whats is happening with Canada Post.

shellsajerseygirl 06/ 1/2011 #

dardarbinx,,,,Thanks for this info.Cause a lot of my partners on swapbot are from Canada. I just sent 2 postcards and to envies to Canada, this week. Please keep us up dated.Again Thank You :)

Newfie 06/12/2011 #

I sent my envie yesterday, the 10th, but forgot to click SEND until now. I'm in the Vancouver area of Canada and so far the postal workers are not on strike in our area. They are rotating and are still not gone on strike yet on the West Coast. I hope my envie reaches my partner without any delay.

shellsajerseygirl 06/24/2011 #

ATT: Swappers,due to the Postal Strike in Canada. Please be aware of the possibly of swap delays.If you are sending or receiving from Canada that is.Please touch base with your partners. Thanks :)

shellsajerseygirl 07/ 1/2011 #

OK, I have heard we may have a few swappers who did not click sent. Sure hope they are not going to flake. I am well aware of the postal issue in Canada. But it seems the swappers are not all from Canada. I will send messages to these swappers over the long weekend. And if I do not hear back from them. I would advise partners TO rate this swap per. swap bot rules. Please refer to the rules . Also please shoot me an message on here to let me know if in fact you were flaked. I will add the flakers to the list.And also ban them from future swaps I host. Thank You all for your help. We need to stick to the rules and rate fairly.This is the only way to rid swaps of the poor swappers.Have a great weekend.

shellsajerseygirl 07/ 7/2011 #

ok,Seems a free swappers, have been flaked here :) I will angel .Send me a message.Be sure to leave the swap name.So I can locate,the correct swap. I did message all of the no senders,.Sad to say I have not heard all back.If you were flaked,please rate your partner per, swap bot rules. Thanks
