    So as a part of my 2010 goals, I wanted to make use of my dSLR that i bought in 2008. I rarely use it. I have asked a few friends about some photoshoot ideas.

    My goal is to do a photoshoot a month of any particular topic that might interst me. Any suggestions?

    So far, i'm thinking of doing black and white photography of all my family members for xmas presents.

    Some people have mentioned, time lapse of traffic at an intersection or freeway, pictures of friends and their mothers, others have suggested friends and their pets...

    I would be intersted at trying my hand at nude photography, i used to take nude sketching classes and those were always fun.

    Depending on where you live, there should be plenty of nature subjects available. Try doing macro stuff on seedpods, flower heads, insects, etc.

    Take whatever pics that interest you. I have an LX3 that I carry around with me and snap random pictures. Basically, I snap whatever catches my eye, whether it's for the visual appeal or for the context of the scene. Alternatively, you can just dedicate one day a week for a photo walk. Just walk around your city and take pics.

    Also, you can try this idea I got from another site. Try to do an "A to Z" theme. One week, take pictures of things that start with an "A" like apples, airplanes, anchors. Next week, take pictures of a bee, bicycles, a guy wearing a nametag that says "Bob", and so on.

    Do a photomosaic or 360 vista of landmarks or favorite areas in your town.

    If you have a park, or natural area, take a picture at the same spot once every month. Capture the changes.

    I'm here. You've been ordering too much online and keeping me too busy. lol There's no more holidays this month, so did everyone get a lot of money for Christmas that they decided to go on another spending frenzy? What's up with this? Or is the economy getting better?

    We also could use a major global warming spell to melt all this snow because we were just hit hard again and the whole state is digging out again. I sure would like to know where this global warming is. There hasn't been a day of any global warming here for several years.

    I second that...

    I carry my DSLR with me practically everywhere, when I see sometime interesting...I bust my camera out.

    I like walking around cities, Chicago for instance. There are always cool things to photograph.

    OP of this thread....why would you even begin this thread without consulting our resident "professional" male model and "professional" photographer G-f "A"rce. Below is a picture of his that captures both of his obvious skills:

    NB- Sorry....couldn't help myself. It is really like a motorcar accident. Even though it's gross to see, you can't help but stare at the bloody wreckage. icon_eek.gif
