Suggestions in this thread ( http://www.rangefinderforum.com/forums/showthread.php?goto=newpost&threadid=29497 ) made me think.

I like the idea of having a "shoot all day" day on the equinox, March 24, and turning it into something substantial like an exhibition and an accompanying book. Heck, we could even make it a traveling exhibition and come up with a Magnum-in-Motion-esque slide show.

I'm trying to generate some buzz on my blog ( http://shardsofphotography.blogspot.com/2006/10/shoot-all-day-day-on-equinox.html ).

Who is interested?
Who can arrange or help arrange an exhibtion?
Who wants to help and/or participate?

Yes, I realise there are many pitfalls on the way. Let's hope we can swerve around them. :)

Please add me to the list. Let's hope it's a beautiful day that day.

Will we go with the "traditional" 21st of March, or the astronomically-correct 20th of March?

BTW, I just checked, it looks like next year, Spring Equinox will fall on the 21st of March, shortly after 12am (midnight) GMT.

Yes, that's right the equinoxes (and solstices) move around a bit. But Spring Equinox 2007 is 21 March.

I Googled it last week to be certain myself. I haven't got the URL for the charts right now. But they are at the National Maritime Museum (London) website.

I posted on the other link but to make sure I'm on the list I'm posting here. It's already on my calendar and I look forward to participating.

A great idea...any restrictions on what is shot? Cos I'll probably be working in the field and so most of my shots will be associated with what I'm working on at the time...

And a month's warning/reminder would be useful... :)

Count me in.

Does anyone have hosting to allow for individual galleries of this special day? I have a site and can set up dedicated galleries with multiple users but if it becomes really popular the traffic may blow my limit...

OK. Equinox is on March 21, 2007. That's a Wednesday. That's cool by me. A long day ahead that day. :)

DavidH, no restrictions if I can help it. Shoot whatever you want. IMO the only limitation is that your photos should be taken on the equinox. If you want to go for a theme yourself, be my guest. Like I said before, I'm thinking of doing a kind of time laps series. Don't know where, don't know when (to speak with Vera Lynn) but I've got time to come up with a plan. :)

Gregg, I think we can set up a blog. It's easy, it's free, people can be made contributors... seems quite perfect to me. Maybe someone can set one up like the "unofficial RFF blog"?

Gid, and anyone else, we need some ideas, hints, tips and information on how to get an exhibition organised, set up and actually out there. I have no idea how to tackle an exhibition but I really like the idea of doing one with the lot of you. :)

I'm happy to see so many enthusiastic reactions to the idea of this "Shoot all day" initiative. I guess it's really pulling off now.

RML: do you think we could persuade Foam at the Keizersgracht to host the exhibit? Wouldn't that be great?

If these count for the "Shoot all day Equinox" then we might just as well allow pictures taken during the previous weekend?

RML
10-13-2006, 11:28
I would prefer to make it really about photos taken on that 21st March but I'm willing to be persuaded.

IMO the "trouble" we have to put in on that wednesday will force us to really think about our shooting. We won't have time much so we have to make choices, tough choices: getting up early to catch the first rays, bringing the camera to work to shoot a shot during lunch break, thinking about what we will shoot in advance and plan for it, etc.

For me that would be half the challenge of that day.

There's an opportunity to produce RFF book three out of this if you think its a good idea - plenty of know how available from the guys who put the other two together.

Regarding exhibitions et al, I've got a couple of ideas, but I'll hold back until I've thought them through. However, it may be worth thinking about personal and overall sponsorship for this project with a goal of donating proceeds to charity (charities).

The previous weekend is St Patrick's Day, and I think that would affect the output of photographers in places where that day is celebrated.

It makes no difference to me, but it may do for some people.

Also, the idea of photographing on the equinox stemmed from wanting to give photographers all over the world twelve hours of light and twelve hours of dark. Not to necessarily photograph sunrises and sunsets.

I think we're learning as we go along here and I, for one, wish the event was sooner.

jonasv
10-13-2006, 12:28
IMHO if we're going to include any other day than the 21st (equinox) the whole point is lost.

Yes, some people won't be able to shoot the 21st... so what!

you can shoot any day you want for your personal joy... if you want to participate in a "shoot all day on equinox"-event it is not THAT unreasonable to exspect you have some time to shoot on equinox... otherwise why participate?

RML
10-13-2006, 12:31
OK, we'll settle this now: participants can only submit photos actually shot on the equinox, March 21, 2007.

Donating to charities would be a fine thing. I don't think we'll need the hassle of having to divide any proceeds (if any) among participants from across the world. The more exhibitions the more different charities can be donated to. But let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. :) First, let's get a group together and make it to March.

I was hoping for the weekend date as initially mentioned, which fostered some ideas that pretty much required having an entire day available. I'll either have to come up with other ideas or take a day off work.

Can we get an updatd list of participants? I think it should be for the 21st and 21st only. Kind of a day in the life sort of thing. If people can't get the day off Im sure they can fit in shooting throughout the day somehow.

The date is settled at March 21, 2007. That makes it clear for everyone, and it's a theme that we can "sell", instead of "the week before and after the equinox". :)

For cameras, media and formats, I'm gonna leave everyone free to choose. RF, SLR, P&S, TLRs, you name it. 35mm, MF, LF, whathaveyou. Film, digital, colour, B&W. I'm open to everything. I rather have people actually shoot on that day than forcing people to use a certain type of camera/medium/format and ending up with few people actually shooting and submitting.

You are free to choose a theme if you need one. No restrictions as long as it's legal.

Wow folks, when I posted my idea of a "Shoot all day" -only 4 days ago- I really didn't expect that this would receive so many enthusiastic reactions. Now it's really starting to look like it's getting somewhere, thanks to people like RML who picked it up and spread the word.

Let me recap where we stand now:

"Shoot all day on equinox" participants can only submit photos actually shot on the equinox, March 21, 2007, from midnight to midnight. And yes, this means that some people (like me) WILL have to take a day off to participate.

The point is NOT just taking pictures of sunrises and sunsets. The idea is to take pictures ON March 21, 2007, no matter what subject you choose.

ALL types of cameras and techniques are allowed: p&s, rf, tlr, slr, mf, lf, b&w, color, analog, digital, plasticfantastic, wristcam, what the heck. This is all about the image, and the photographer, not about what technique was used in order to create it. Van Gogh painted on jute remember?

The "Shoot all day on equinox" images will eventually be shown at exhibitions all over the world. As soon as the project has matured enough to do so (I expect in a month or two), we'll have to work on a multilingual press release, sponsors will have to be contacted, and exhibitions (at least one per participating country) will have to be arranged.

Apart from the exhibitions, there will be books and web galleries. What about a calendar to start with? (to be published after the exhibitions.)

Profits (if any) from this project could go to charity. I suggest we decide on that (like what charity) in a poll.

There is no numerus fixus, nor will there be any. We are happy to see the list of participants grow day by day. This has to be a worldwide event.

We now have 26 participants already.

If you guys actually decide to print out a book, http://www.lulu.com is an option. Altough I wouldn't recommend it unless you are counting on selling really few copies. A real publisher is really the ideal thing, but it can sometimes be hard to get them to fall for the idea.

This could work, but probably in the form of a "limited edition" of some kind. Baryte prints in a linen box? It's indeed something to consider.

RML
10-14-2006, 11:57
A print set is nice buuuuut... not everyone shoots B&W film, remember? Colour, digital, every medium and format is allowed. So, a limited edition set would be nice but I see some hurdles along that way. Plus, what numbers are we talking? Think of a limited edition of 100 sets. That means everyone will have to cough up money to make 100 good (preferably archival) prints. Can we all afford that? I reckon no. Than we would need a wealthy sponsor. Anyone know where to get one?

I am in but...is this shots taken "sometime" on that day, or shots _throughout_ the day?

The guy who started the other thread on this (too long a name for me to remember :-), implied in this thread that it's 24 hours of shooting, a la the one I'm arranging for the folks in the San Francisco Bay Area sometime next month. The goal is to have photos that cover 24 hours, all 24 hours.

Now, even my project likely won't turn out that way - we'll take shifts. Actually, what I did was say that _I'm_ shooting for 24 hours, and asked if folks wanted to hang around.

I have no problem if this isn't that organized. But I'm confused as to whether the goal is to be organized or not.

But, if it's not too late, count me in. I'll have recovered by March to do another 24 hours if that's the idea :-).

Oh, yeah - I am willing to create a blog for this, (I host the RFF one, but it's just a bunch of pointers to other blogs) but I do not think I can handle all the actual images on my site. I have 5GB of space currently (though I can buy more), and I've used up 1GB of it so far. But maybe we can work something out. I'm more than happy to host it in general, and I can get a WordPress blog set up very quickly with quite a few features.

An online, free-form version of this project might be a nice companion to the more formal versions out there.

Just spend the whole day shooting. Be productive. Be inspired. And use your best shots for submission.

(Yes, my nick is too long to remember; forget that and just call me Rene!)

10-14-2006, 12:35
Rene (phew, thanks),
So - start at like noon and shoot for 24 hours? Or just shoot when you can during those 24 hours? What if you only shoot 1 hour that day? What if you shoot only 30 minutes during lunch?

You can be as loose or as strict as you want. My 24 hour project is loose _EXCEPT_ for the need to get coverage all 24 hours eventually, either through one person or multiple groups. Obviously, with this many people in the project you'll likely get all 24 hours anyway, but is it _planned_ or just _hoped_for_? That's al I"m asking. I'm agnositic for the purposes of this project (as compared to my own project).

Allan, what I had in mind when I started this thread was more like shooting what you can during those 24 hours, the more you can do the better. But if you can shoot only 30 minutes during lunch, that's okay too. However that would limit your chances of producing the keepers you'd like to submit.

kaiyen
10-14-2006, 12:52
Rene,
Okay - I was just asking for clarification, which I think you understood. It dawned on me that some might think I was advocating one way or the other.

So totally free. Just shoot for some part or all of that day. Roger that.

10-14-2006, 22:56
Kaiyen, if you could help set up a blog, that would be real swell. :p But no need to host it on your own account. Wordpress, Blogger et al provide plenty of space so we can just host it on the blog site.

IMO, as Rene already made clear, we can just shoot that day whatever we can. If that means you can do the whole 24 hours, that's fine. If it means you can only do a few shots, that's fine too.

I love the idea of a book. There is a very good POD worth checking out. Yes, it is substantially more expensive than lulu.com, BUT I think that you'll all agree that the quality is substanially much better. They also offer the services that a major publisher would offer, for additional cost of course, but in the end the published product will be that much better.

Hope this helps,

I love the idea of a book. There is a very good POD worth checking out. Yes, it is substantially more expensive than lulu.com, BUT I think that you'll all agree that the quality is substanially much better. They also offer the services that a major publisher would offer, for additional cost of course, but in the end the published product will be that much better.

http://www.fastbackbooks.com/services.htm

Hope this helps,

Kevin

Thanks! This might be a great alternative to lulu. Especially for a photo book, print quality is very important. The additional cost will be a non-issue provided that we find the right sponsor(s).

Let's put this one (fastbackbooks.com) on our list of lulu-alternatives. Later on, ManGo might add some more options to this list.

Even though March is still several months away, can I just say I'm excited about doing this?! And I'm impressed with the level of discourse on the subject too. On some other sites, the thread would have dissolved into a list of why this can't happen. Here there's just healthy debate. Very nice alternative!!

Ah well, I have never done this sort of thing before - but that is all the more reason to start now. Please add me to the list of prospective 'toggies, even though I haven't even got anything in the gallery (yet).

Am I being completely daft if I say that this shoot will be for 36 hours ? It may be 24 hours at any one point - but the new day, and those 24 hours, depends on where you are doesn't it..... ?

"EQUINOX photo project - thirty-six hours changed by the world" or something like that.

WHAT: a "Shoot all day" event

WHEN: Wednesday, March 21, 2007, a.k.a. "Autumn" (or "Spring" depending where you are) Equinox

WHERE: anywhere on this planet

WHO: anyone who is able and willing to spend some time (the more the better) on March 21, 2007, to shoot pictures for this worldwide event

WHAT CAMERA / SUBJECTS / TECHNIQUE: this is all up to you. Anything goes (well I mean, as long as it is legal, it will be alright ;-)

WHAT DO I DO NOW: just post to this thread, telling us "you're in" - or something like that

WHAT DO I DO AFTER THAT: just wait for the day to come (3/21, 2007) then shoot as many pictures as you can that day, and submit your best ones. In the meantime, watch this thread from time to time, to learn about the details and/or to participate in the preparations phase

WHY: to be shown in galleries in as many places as possible, to be published in a photo book, to be part of a worldwide event and to benefit charity (on which we will decide later on, in a poll)

Martin: keep those slogans coming. We need osme catchy slogan to whip the galleries with into action and letting us host a show. :)

Frank: I guess everyone just has to be really critical of his/her shooting and select 1-2-3 photos for inclusion in the show, book, slide show, whathaveyou. If the submitter can also give them a gold, silver or bronze medal than we know which photo should go in before all the others, just in case we have too many photos. Right now we're at 40 participants. That times 3 photos each and we already have 120 photos. More than in RFF book 2.

I don't think we should limit the amount of photos per person. What about giving everyone say, a double-page and let them suggest a lay-out.

Many small pictures, one double-page spread, two vertical pics, ... And in the back of the book some info per page about the pictures and the photographer.

This would be a perfect excuse to work on my Kodachrome project.
Hmmm... that is a good idea. Maybe I could use it as a Kodachrome day, and involve current and former Kodak employees here in Rochester who have or had a direct connection with Kodachrome. As well as other Kodachrome shots, of course.

I agree with you. I was thinking of not putting a limit on the amount of pictures submitted by one person, and in order to come to a selection, setting up a well thought out selection process like (for example) a poll in which every participant votes for the three (of four, or five, whatever) best pictures of every participant (including his/her own ones - why not).

So we (all the participants together) will be our own "jury" then.

That way, we will end up with a selection of pictures "we" consider "the best we have to offer".

Any ideas on this?

popstar
10-17-2006, 18:51
Interesting idea Rene. I have no problem having others give input on the photos selected. Sometimes it's easy to get attached to a photo or two that others really don't get. It can be helpful to have that objetive criticism to make our work (or in this case, the 'book') stronger. If there is a way to pull off such a massive poll I think it might be helpful.

I don't really feel like voting on fifty polls and looking at, say, 500 images to select from... Sorry, just don't have time to do this well and I think not a lot of people have. And the eventual selection being made by people who just glimpsed over the picture for a second... No thanks.

I disagree that others should select the pictures. If you're unsure, sure, put up a poll and ask for input. But everyone who wants to should have the right to choose his own pictures...

And moreover I also disagree that the number of pictures should be limited. Not only in the uploading/selection process, but also in the final publication. I think people should get a maximum amount of SPACE, not PICTURES. Someone who shoots carefully composed medium format slides with brilliant tonality may want to publish just one photo in a double-page spread for everyone to admire it. Someone else, a believer in the snapshot-aesthetic may like to show say ten pictures, some small and some a bit bigger, on that same double-page space to show of his vision, the process of his picture-taking or his documentary style.

I don't think someone else can judge this.

Hi Doitashimash1te,

I see an issue with the poll selection process : very similar pictures of the same topic (e.g. sunrise) get high votes. Consequently we end up with a showcase of the RFF comunity that might very well be boring when put together as a book because so many of us love the same kind of pictures.
My suggestion to have some of our seasoned members (definately not newbies like myself) make a hard core session that means go actually to view ALL submissions and cut them down to let's say 150 just based on each individual picture. Followed by a final cut to the limit that will be published taking a look at all pictures and remove e.g. some of the sunrises when there are simply too many.
Just my 2 cts.

RML
10-18-2006, 10:47
Even us hardcore oldtimers don't always have wisdom, icebear, though I guess we should feel flattered. :) I think most of us are very well capable of making a selection from our own selections. For the previous RFF books we also never put photos to the vote but let people come up with what they considered their best/ most inspirational/ most interesting/ etc photos. No questions asked, no judgement passed. It turned out that the quality of the individual photos was quite high.

jonasv, RML and icebear, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the proposed selection process.

Yes, I see what you mean, and it made me reconsider the idea of a group-wise selection.

Some people will want to make their own selection, and are confident that they will be able to recognize their best ones, where others feel they lack the self-criticism necessary to select the right images.

So how about having people make their own selection, no questions asked, no judgement passed, and only when they are in doubt, they MAY ask the other rff'ers for input, in the form of a poll or otherwise.

Sounds fine, Rene.
People can always upload some photos in a thread or in their gallery and ask people to choose for them. I did in the past. :)

Keith: of course you're not too late!

Being new here what attracted me to this project was just the thought of getting out with a bunch of like minded people enjoying photography. The thought of a possible book or exhibition was icing on the cake. My thoughts are more aligned with the thinking we should submit our own photos for a designated amount of space. I have trusted people that will give me feedback on the images I believe I should submit. My guess is that members here have that as well and while I don't know anyone here personally, there are photographers that I hope to get to know and would value their feedback, but that will come over time.

I'm excited about this and was drawn to this forum by someone who had directed me to the LULU site and the forum books that have previously been published. It's quite the honor to be able to participate in something similar.

Just one man's opinion.

hi Trius,
Baldini is a typical surname of many people living in Lucca and villages around it.
It would be nice and interesting if you would ask them where do they exactly (which village) are caming from, but , first of all, if you go to that restaurant I hope you'll enjoy your meal!!

Steamer, Archie, welcome to the bunch!

I guess we do have to set a submit-before date.
With digital people can upload in seconds but I guess with film things will take a bit longer.

How about a week?
Is that too short? Too long? Just right?

Archie
10-27-2006, 06:50
I'd prefer 2 weeks, even if it'd be ok with one, but you never know what will happen. Then you don't have to forget some shipping time if we analogue guys use prints, depends what works better for the "collectors".

MartinP
10-27-2006, 07:24
This is a good point. In what format are the submissions initially best required ? Should everything be scanned ready for repro, or is some poor soul going to end up with a hundred 10"x 12"prints to scan ?!

It might be more practical for the photographers to look after the digitising of the results, for the first useage (selection?) at least - in which case the specifications for file size and output destination need to be agreed on somehow.

I am talking about the initial production of "whatever-it-is" of course. By the time anything might get to the stage of hanging on a wall it will be months later.

It is more complicated than I thought !

Archie
10-27-2006, 13:59
it will be indeed very complicated

I think it'd help those guys creating the book when we send the data digital. different layouts (when we stick with 2 pages / user) and sizes should be declared here.

ah and btw. I want to shoot this event with a rangefinder, so anybody willing to sell his/her oly 35rd? :D

Should digital images be in RGB or CMYK? what dpi? etc etc etc....

I could get mine in within days, unless I go to wet printing.

I think if we give people just over 2 weeks, that way the photo's can be taken, sent away for processing if needs be, and given time to get onto the pc, post-processed and emailed.

I'd say given people's lives outside the forum 3 weeks should be the deadline, but work should be submitted ASAP, that way you have work submitted over a period that should make a workload more easy to deal with??

How is it I don't see my name on the list? Ohhhh, now I get it. Because I haven't said, "Count me in!" yet. I'm always late for the good parties. :( Okay, so COUNT ME IN!

(And when the RFF 2007 Calendar gets up and going, we can arrange to have reminders emailed to us.)

Maybe round the first of the year, we might start a serparate thread, "Ideas for Equinox-Shoot-All-Day"

Update Saturday, Oct. 28, 2006

WHAT: a "Shoot all day" event

WHEN: Wednesday, March 21, 2007, a.k.a. "Autumn" (or "Spring" depending where you are) Equinox

WHERE: anywhere on this planet

WHO: anyone who is able and willing to spend some time (the more the better) on March 21, 2007, to shoot pictures for this worldwide event

WHAT CAMERA / SUBJECTS / TECHNIQUE: this is all up to you. Anything goes (well I mean, as long as it is legal, it will be alright ;-)

WHAT DO I DO NOW: just post to this thread, telling us "you're in" - or something like that

WHAT DO I DO AFTER THAT: just wait for the day to come (3/21, 2007) then shoot as many pictures as you can that day, and submit your best ones (you'll be your own judge here). In the meantime, watch this thread from time to time, to learn about the details and/or to participate in the preparations phase

WHY: to be shown in galleries in as many places as possible, to be published in a photo book, to be part of a worldwide event and to benefit charity (on which we will decide later on, in a poll)

I wonder, do we have all the time zones covered? I don't remember my long ago geography classes well enough, are there any time zones with out land? This is getting more interesting as we get more people involved!

Slowly but steadily the list is growing!

About any files for a book. Here on RFF we've been involved in 2 rff books already so the knowledge is present. However, since this is an "open to any camera" venture, I don't think we should consider this a _3rd_ RFF book as the 2 earlier books were open only to photos taken with rangefinders.

The more photos per photographer (and the more of them too) the bigger the book will become, and the more expensive as well. We could go for a 2-way approach: make a Lulu.com book for those who want to buy a hard copy, and a PDF file for those who want a digital version (and perhaps print it themselves). With the previous rff books we opted for no markup and thus no profit as dividing the proceeds would become incredilbly difficult, and we'd be talking about peanuts per photographer anyway.

About exhibitions I know nothing useful. I guess everyone could organise one in his/her area, get it all set up and finalised, and approach the participants to send prints ready for exhibition (matted or boarded and all). I'd go for a mat of 50x40cm with a print of up to 30x20, which is what the dutch amateur photography federation uses for its contests and such. Sending such a package shouldn't cost too much from anywhere to anywhere. Tom O'Meara just send me a similar print on board (Print Swap 8) and the shipping was $5 from the USA to Holland by USPS.

When we could find a worldwide organisation, maybe some photographers could portait this organisation in their country on equinox.

c.poulton
11-19-2006, 04:02
I would prefer to make it really about photos taken on that 21st March but I'm willing to be persuaded.

IMO the "trouble" we have to put in on that wednesday will force us to really think about our shooting. We won't have time much so we have to make choices, tough choices: getting up early to catch the first rays, bringing the camera to work to shoot a shot during lunch break, thinking about what we will shoot in advance and plan for it, etc.

For me that would be half the challenge of that day.

Yes, that will be the challenge for me too, however count me in - it sounds like a great idea.

With the undoubtedly large number of photographs submitted, is there going to be any 'judging' or spliting into themes, or is this asking too much?

RML
11-19-2006, 11:13
IMO no theme. And I think we should set a limit to the maximum number of photos submitted per person. But it's not yet March, so we have time. :)

DMG

Toby
11-19-2006, 13:08
I'd be more than happy to join in, but I'd really like some kind of theme to think about. I know most of us think the opposite but surely we should have something to unify the work then there is a possibilty of a book or exhibition. If it's eqinox then maybe equality? equilibrium? If we have months to think about it then collectively we should try and really push ourselves to do the best work we possibly can.

"I'd be more than happy to join in, but I'd really like some kind of theme to think about."I'm in no matter what, but the fact that people all over the planet are shooting on the same day to share their unique creativity with each other... is a pretty good theme. Sharing ideas, thoughts, brainstorming ahead of time concerning who/what/where/how individuals are planning to shoot that day would probably help others get ideas and promote that creativity. Just a thought.

I'm expecting a very w-i-d-e variety of styles, methods and subjects, as diverse as the membership of RFF. Should be great!

RML
11-19-2006, 22:13
67! Woohoo. :)

Toby, I know quite a few people would love to have a theme to focus on but as the pastor said, I think the fact we're all shooting on Spring Equinox is already a pretty goof theme. However, no-one is preventing you from choosing your own theme for that day.

Great idea. I'd love to participate.

I'll work my way to 20 pages of posts in this thread, if I have to, but it be easier if somebody could let me know whether the process for image submission has been determined yet.

Can the first post in the thread be edited to include the "rules" as they are determined? Date, # of photos per submission, deadline for submission, etc.

RML

About the rules... maybe my esteemed colleague can post an overview?

About the submission rules... I don't think that has been discussed and decided yet.

The most amazing "Equinox" photo I know is the attached by Dennis di Cicco, shot in the late 70's over a period of a year at 8:30AM in the morning. Yes, this is a single multiple exposure image, not doctored digitally. It shows the Analemma of the Sun's way in quite graphical form. Both Eqinoxes (autumnal and vernal) are at the center left where the loops come together. The soltices are at the extremes of the loops. Dennis di Cicco is an editor and photographer for Sky and Telescope Magazine, where you can also purchase large copies of this photo. I remember the first time I saw it it left me speechless.

Update Thursday, Dec. 28, 2006

WHAT: a "Shoot all day" event

WHEN: Wednesday, March 21, 2007, a.k.a. "Autumn" (or "Spring" depending where you are) Equinox

WHERE: anywhere on this planet

WHO: anyone who is able and willing to spend some time (the more the better) on March 21, 2007, to shoot pictures for this worldwide event

WHAT CAMERA / SUBJECTS / TECHNIQUE: this is all up to you. Anything goes (well I mean, as long as it is legal, it will be alright ;-)

WHAT DO I DO NOW: just post to this thread, telling us "you're in" - or something like that

WHAT DO I DO AFTER THAT: just wait for the day to come (3/21, 2007) then shoot as many pictures as you can that day, and submit your best ones (you'll be your own judge here). In the meantime, watch this thread from time to time, to learn about the details and/or to participate in the preparations phase

WHY: to be shown in galleries in as many places as possible, to be published in a photo book, to be part of a worldwide event and to benefit charity (on which we will decide later on, in a poll)
