Ack! It’s January 1, 2013, and I didn’t tell you I was participating! Is it too late?
It’s not too late! Shoot! Share! Tag! However, January 2, 2013 will be too late to be officially aligned with this project.
I’m shy, can I still shoot along even if I don’t let you know I’m doing it?
Of course! The reason I’m collecting participant info on my nerdy spreadsheet is for “internal” communication purposes – interviews for the blog and stuff. And if we add a mid project twist on the theme. The more the merrier. If you use the suggested tags and hashtags, we’ll still be able to welcome you to the community.
Do I need to be a professional photographer?
Nope, not at all. This is your challenge to inject a little creativity every day into your 2013. You’re sharing your perspective of what’s underfoot when you look down.
Do I need to have a massive digital camera?
A wise man once said “the best camera you have is the one you have with you.” Be that pinhole, Droid, or MarkIII, you’re golden
Do I have to post to all of the social media/photo sharing channels you listed in the in the Guidelines?
No way, man, that would tortuous. Those are all options to make it easier for you to share in the way you’re already used to sharing. I do strongly recommend a Flickr account to upload and keep track of each day so you don’t lose count. You can share directly from Flickr, too. I do not work for Flickr, I’ve just been a user since diapers. Or at least since I was 22.
Do feet have to be in the photo?
The only thing that has to be in the photo is your perspective when you see what’s underfoot. If your feet make a cameo in all or some of the images, then so be it! I don’t want to limit creativity – the only necessity is that you look down. Depending on what you’re into at the time, down may even be up to someone else.
