Happy New year & don’t forget Project 12

Well it’s the last day of 2011, and it’s been quite a year for the world. Between earthquakes and tsunami’s, fallen dictators and economic crashes, it has been, as they say, interesting times. One of the biggest shocks in the photojournalism world was the death of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, a very sad loss.

But the world keeps turning, so here’s to 2012, and wishing you all the best and a very happy New Year.

A quick reminder of our December 21st blog post, Project 12: Something old, something new

We’d love if you took part. The rules are simple –

1. Shoot two photos at anytime between Dec 24th and Jan 1st. The photos should say something about the end of 2011, and the begining of 2012. Doesn’t have to be a world scale reflection and projection, can just be something personal too.

2. Use any camera, film, digital, phone, whatever’s easiest for you

3. Post the photos on CorkAP’s Facebook wall – https://www.facebook.com/corkap

I should add one more rule –

4. Rules are guidelines, be creative and break them …

If the camera has gotten dusty over the past week, but you have two photos that meet the spirit of the project, go ahead and post them. It’s just for fun!

Now, need to check the beer situation for tonights festivities …

** Adendum. Looks like we can’t create photo albums on the FB page. Therefore just upload the photos one at a time, or create a jpeg with both photos on it, if you are technically minded!!

Project 12: Something old, something new

An old photos of some old Cork Analogue Photographers. In a field.

We haven’t been blogging for a while, and there’s a reason why. Cork Analogue Photographers have become a little jaded lately. Motivation has been down, and we have trouble arranging to meet up. We want to be more inclusive, and interact with more people. Maybe people who don’t live in Cork. Maybe some who don’t even shoot film. So we’re coming up with a plan, and the plan is being planned (to use a Dr. Suessism!). I’ll tell you more in the New Year, but to mark the end of 2011, and looking forward to 2012, we have come up with a little project.

We’d love if you took part. The rules are simple –

1. Shoot two photos at anytime between Dec 24th and Jan 1st. The photos should say something about the end of 2011, and the begining of 2012. Doesn’t have to be a world scale reflection and projection, can just be something personal too.

2. Use any camera, film, digital, phone, whatever’s easiest for you

3. Post the photos on CorkAP’s Facebook wall – https://www.facebook.com/corkap (post both in the same post using Create an Album – many photos)

Enjoy it, have fun!
