Photo Project - 52

I recently picked up a pack of Lightbox Photography Cards1 which are essentially a deck of 52 cards, each one featuring a photo challenge to have a go at with a description and an example image.

As there are 52 cards this naturally led me to the idea of a 52 photo project starting in January 2016 where the challenge for each week will be determined by randomly selecting one of the cards from the deck.

This is somewhat different to a regular 'photo-a-week' project as the theme each week is going to be set rather than being open. This could potentially be more challenging as the weekly photo has to fit a theme but at the same time will provide focus and inspiration.

I intend on uploading my weekly images to Flickr2 and have also created a public group to organise them and allow anyone else to join in. The group can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/52project2016/

Each week on a Sunday I will randomly draw a card from the deck and post the drawn challenge theme to the group discussion board. A photo fulfilling the criteria of the theme will then need to be uploaded before the following Sunday when the next card will be drawn.

Apart from that the rules are pretty much open as any type and model of camera is allowed (I expect to post photos taken on a Pentax K3II, Panasonic LX100 and LG G3) with the only stipulation that one photo is posted per person per week.

If you'd like to join in then please come an join the group!
