View Full Version : Photography Scavenger Hunt

This isn't really a contest, but something fun for all of us to do, especially since we're coming closer to the slower part of the year for us photographers. So this is how it works...

We start with something to take a photograph of... to start it off I'll do something simple, how about a Red Flower.
Then everyone goes out and tries to find a red flower and of course takes a photo of it, whoever gets it posted first gets to choose the next object.
It can be as simple or hard as you want, but the photo has to be taken for the scavenger hunt, not something you have lying around.

I hope someone can find a red flower :D Good luck!!!




(Of course this is a work in progress so any ideas are more then welcome)

Sounds like fun. I think one rule should be that it can't be something that you know if one of a kind and nobody else has or is so ridiculously hard that nobody gets is - i.e. - 1960 Roger Maris MVP Baseball card.

LOL yeah I think that's a good idea! I could only imagine the things people around here would put up to drive us all nuts :)

There was something similar to this on POTN, not sure if any of you saw it but it's kind of fun and fairly easy.
Not that I'm stealing ideas or anything.

An old drinking game I remember.....

A person would name a celebrity and the next person had to name another celebrity using the first letter of the last name.

Can't we do this with pictures?? Come on, let's try it.

ferris wheel
W
white swan
S
satin cloth
C
Corvette Stingray

GOT IT!!!

Oh..... I was wondering what a Hair Loom was.... lol,lol.. you should hear me say it Here-Loom.. Now why would I have any of those? my family never had anything to hand down and if they did it was Hocked loooong before it got to me..lol

JayVig
09-28-2007, 12:21 PM
Too bad I can't take a picture of my short fuse and temper. Apparently that's an heirloom. Every generation had it and loved it so much that they keep on passing it down.

Maybe I can make an angry face and take a pic of it. Will that be close enough? LOL

KDN
09-28-2007, 02:13 PM
Hey he said creatively shot that pretty much means anything goes :D

Here is a ring I got from my great great grandmother, great grandmother, grandmother, mother and now me..........so i would guess this qualifies as an heirloom......
http://www.northeastfoto.com/gallery/files/4/2/8/ring1resize.jpg

KDN
09-30-2007, 07:57 PM
Oh I'm out of this one for sure!

Nice ring, I like how you set it up, might have to give that a try. Can't wait to see what the next challenge will be! Someone hurry up and find their name :D

l you can make your name out of anything you find (ie: pencils, rocks, just be creative when spelling your name, no hand writing then taking a picture of it.)
