Just a short one today, as I should be doing uni work, blah x.x
So, go for it! Birds, fish, reptiles, pets; anything that's an animal, hunt it down with your lens.
- Current Mood: rushed
Now's the time to start putting up your Still Life photos that you've taken this week. Did anyone have any random cornucopias lying around their house, conveniently next to a vase of flowers? :P
Also, if all community members (and watchers) could vote in this poll it would be much appreciated so I can see how this is working out for everyone.
How would you prefer to see photos posted to the community?
We only got a few picture up from last week so if you took some, get cracking and upload them. If not, this week is just for you: find anything around your house that isn't alive and photograph it!
Remember, you've got until the next Photo Call in a week's time to post them up here so don't give up if you haven't taken any yet.
For those that might be wondering why I opted for submissions to be posted as comments, rather than individual community entries, is that I didn't want people to be overwhelmed with a flood of posts every week (especially if the community membership gets bigger at some point). Also, I feel that it keeps each week's submissions together and able to be commented on.
rosequoll brought up the point that posting your pictures as comments limits discussion in some way. My personal opinion is that you can have the same level of discussion within comments which is why I recommend tracking comments to the Photo Call entries if you like to know what others are saying. I also know that some people would rather just come and check out the weekly_photo entries a couple of times a week to see what's going on.
This is a new community venture, and I do encourage your input. If more people do want to post their submissions as new community entries instead, we could look at changing the format. I might post a poll or something sometime next week to gauge people's opinions.
To keep things neat, if you want to share your opinion of how you'd like to see photos posted, please comment on the entry here and save this one for photos.

If you haven't posted a photo for last week's theme yet, you can still do so up until this weekend coming. See you then!
Reiterating the value of tracking comments to be notified when others post their pictures. There were a couple of delayed submissions last week so go and check them out if you haven't already.
Most people don't like having a camera shoved in their face, and here's your permission to do just that! This week's theme is People. One person, two or more, posed or candid it doesn't matter.
Go out and take the perfect shot and capture a people moment. See you on Sunday!
P.S. If you still have submissions for last week's theme, you can still post them (as I know that some of you still have some Sunday left and/or are out of town at the moment) up until I do the next call for photos this weekend coming.
So, over the rest of the weekend (wherever you happen to be) post your pictures as a comment to this entry. This community's all about encouraging others to help us all improve and stay motivated so comment on other people's photos. The only thing I ask is don't be nasty, it's fine to be critical just don't attack anyone.
As for the content of your submission comments, to be nice to people using different browsers and maybe even slow internets, keep the maximum dimension under 600 pixels. But yes, feel free to link to a larger sized image too. I'm thinking it might be a nice idea to write a little bit about why you chose that photo as well, just for some background for people.
I'd recommend tracking comments if you want to be notified of when other people add photos as we're all kind of spread out across the world. And, it's easier than coming back to check this post all the time!
So, ladies and gentleman, your submissions on the theme of Water please.
That's it. Take photos. Have fun.
