That's all we need - shots of pasty fat asses.

I dunno, though. The Challenges served the purpose that they were meant to serve, really. Interest was lost on them, bigtime, towards the last one. Not as if it took a whole lot of my time to run the things, but I'd just rather not visit that particular method of getting me off my ass to take pictures again. There's got to be something different we could all do that would take us all to the next incline in the learning curve rather than re-visiting previous plateaus.
Maybe we could all raid a random wedding simultaneously, ninja-style, with everyone taking pictures only as long as it takes for them to have someone remove us, and then donating our results to the bride and groom afterwards?
Or we could all go out together one Saturday night and be total paparazzi, trying to get pictures of celebrities around L.A. and trying to sell them to magazines. Any earnings we get are put into a communal pot to pay for any legal fees we might need to pay as a result of our actions.
Or maybe we could get a big list of participants together. The first one on the list could find an interesting and non-expensive item in their house and spend a day photographing it, keeping his images off the net. Then they could send that item to the next person who would spend a day photographing it, and so on and so on until we get to the end of the list. When the item has been to everyone, we all post our images simultaneously to see how similar and different they all are.
Stuff like that.
(p.s. I think the 'Ninja Photographers' thing would be frickin fun as hell.)
I just joined SmugMug so I can sell my **** like FBJ. It looks really cool and it totally customizable. They do all the printing etc and it's pretty cheap. I talked to another photog who recommended it and says the prints are great. Here is a link to a free trial. You can save $5 on a subscription by using the coupon eSCBLmEj9DYVk at signup.
