->> All right, so a fellow SS student member and I had this thing where we went out and shot, and put up galleries and had people look at them, and it got me thinking...

We all come from different parts of the country, and see each other maybe once a year at the Luau, so what if we did something to bring together all the student members of SS for little random photo essays, where we could all look at each others work and offer feedback.

I figure we could pick a word at the beginning of the week, or concept, it's really wide open, and at the end of the week, all post our galleries with what we shot, limiting the number of pics to a reasonable amount.

Then we could post them on the message board, and we could all look at them, or look to the pros to give us feedback.

Let me know what everyone thinks.

Then we'll have a week to shoot, the gallery would need to be up with 3-5 pics next Friday at noon (Pacific).

So tommorrow at noon I'll put up the word. Tell everyone you want, the more the better.

->> Being as the 4th of July is right around the corner, why not do the first theme as "Patriotism"? This could be any one of a large selection of people celebrating the 4th or flag displays etc.

Just a thought, carry on.
