Let’s get those cameras ready to capture your 2015 Summer Memories!

Last year, we had a great time taking pictures for the Summer PhoTAYgraphy Club Project. 2014 saw TAY’ers at cons, camping trips, nighttime downtown excursions, enjoying food and sun and more.

This year, we’ll be asking for much of the same for 2015’s Summer Project. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Take your cameras—cellphone cameras, high-end cameras, point and shoots—and capture some of your adventures this Summer. You don’t need to have a super big trip planned to participate, though those are welcome too, of course. It could be a bbq in your backyard, even. If it’s Summer to you, it’s an adventure that we’d like to share in too.*Update: Minus your boudoir photos. No one wants to share in those, thanks.
  • All levels of photography knowledge are welcome (and that includes whatever camera you have). It’s not a competition for a best photo. It’s not a competition at all. We’d just love to share our pictures with each other, right? Right.
  • This Club theme will run throughout most of Summer. The deadline for submissions will be September 10, 2015
  • Submit your entries on your personal Kinja blogs. You’ll need two tags to submit them. “TAY Classic” and “Summer PhoTAYgraphy Club 2015”. You can have as many entries as you want. At the end of Summer, we’ll likely create another collage and link to everyone’s posts as we did last year.
  • As for themes for your Summer 2015 adventures... that’s up to you. Last year we did, for example, “As Zarnyx Zips” and “As Nach Navigates”. You don’t have make a fun name for your adventures if you don’t want to or you can be as creative as you’d like. It’s all good. Feel free to tell us about the adventures too in both words and pictures. Remember, ultimately it’s your Summer story. You can tell it however you like!
  • Have Fun!

We’re looking forward to all those entries. And unlike the header image, we hope your Summer is exciting and not recycled.
