The Future of Geographic Composition
As regular readers know, every other week a number of other photographers and I submit photos based around a common theme as part of the Geographic Composition photo project. We’ve had a total of 46 editions to date and have had contributions from all over the US and various countries around the world offering a unique collection of imagery that is both connected through the theme and yet diverse given the cultural and geographic locations in which the photographers find themselves.
Those following this series may have noticed that I have only listed the next few themes up to week #50. The reason for this is that I am thinking about what the future of the project should be. And I would like to solicit your input – both contributors and readers alike, regulars and newcomers.
To get the discussion started, let me pose a few questions:
- What do you like about Geographic Composition? What could be improved?
- Is twice a month too often for posting new editions of the project? Would once a month be better?
- If you haven’t been a contributor to Geographic Composition, what type of regular photo project would you be interested in?
- Should Geographic Composition come to completion and a new project begin in its place?
- Other thoughts or ideas?
Please share your thoughts. I am open to any suggestions you may have. I don’t want to skew your feedback, but it feels as though the project has run its course and maybe it’s time for a new project to be developed, perhaps continuing with the thematic nature of GC, perhaps not.
Everything with this project is on the table from format to frequency to presentation to whether to continue it at all. I welcome any and all input you may have so that this project or a new project will help foster creative growth and help us all get our photographic juices flowing with new challenges and opportunities to get out there and shoot.
I look forward to your comments!
