NEW...Team-Up Thursday

It's a brand new year, and I've got a new project to spice up your Thursdays. To give credit, this idea belongs to the lovely Melody over at Hip Momma's Journal. Since Theme Thursday had run its course, I'd been thinking about trying something new, and Melody had the brilliant idea of pairing up. Every week, we'll decide on a theme or idea, each take a photograph, and then put them together in a diptych.

This week, we tried "shoes":

diptych1shoes


I love that we both ended up with fabulous red in our photos. Completely different perspectives, though, and that's what will make Team-Up Thursday so creative.

Since I am in Oregon and Melody is in Texas, this reminded me of the 3191 year of mornings blog, in which two friends, separated by 3191 miles, each take a photograph every morning and post them before 10am. Their project was actually published in 2008, and they are currently at work on a similar project, 3191 Miles Apart.

How does this work for the rest of you? Simple, if you have someone in mind, grab her and make her participate with you. If you don't, leave a comment here, and we'll hook you up with a partner. You might decide that once a week is too much. That's OK, we'll be here, so drop by and participate when you can. We are going to leave the themes up to you. Melody and I will choose one for us to use each week, but you and your partner are free to photograph whatever you'd like to do together.

I am excited about the creative possibilities of this new venture, so Team Up, and show us what you've got.

Stacy said...

This should be fun! I need something to give me a reason to pick up the camera - been in a slump lately.

I'm like Stacey, in a slump. I've been sick FOREVER and we're getting ready to move, so motivation for 365 died about a week ago. But I've always loved diptychs...and 3191! I'm in. I don't know about coming up with a theme each week on my own,though - hmm.

Christina said...

This is gonna be fun! Count me in for next week. Waiting on confirmation from the partner I chose...

Amy Jo said...

I found a partner, but she doesn't have a blog. Can I just post our shots on mine? And to be clear, we're shooting shoes for next week, right?
