Details of swap:
(plagiarised heavily in parts from the blurb from the previous rounds)

Please note: I'm not some hardcore control freak, so please excuse the demanding tone in this description!  Grin

Take 36 photographs over the period of a week. That is an average of 5 shots per day. Both film and digital are ok - as long as you get digital ones printed. The pictures should represent your life that week, whether it is extremely interesting or quite dull. Feel free to be artistic, touristy or to take family snapshots - it's your choice. You will need to make 2 copies of the prints to send to 2 partners (plus an extra if you want to keep them or possibly angel). Please take the pictures yourself (or have someone else take them if you're in them etc) rather than printing other people's images or using postcards. It is a photography swap!

Here are your options for swapping the pictures.
1.Send just the pictures with captions on the back (or numbered pictures with captions on slips of paper so they can be put in an album)
2.Send the pictures in a thin album with captions
3.Scrapbook your pictures. If you choose this option keep in mind that I might have to ask you to re-select if you are the only one.


You will be paired people who have chosen the same option.  

For example, I live in China and am therefore an international send to pretty much everyone. Also, I have to take all my stuff home to Australia when I go back early next year to do some study. Therefore, it's not practical for me to receive albums.

Please think seriously about making yourself available for international swapping. In this case just the photos can be sent out, so it wouldn't necessarily be that pricy. It would also be interesting to share your life with someone from a different culture and place, so ideally I would partner you with people from different countries. If you absolutely cannot send an international letter with 36 pictures in it I do understand, but I may have to put you in limbo acceptance to see if I can pair you. International sending will get priority!

You are free to share whatever elements of your life you feel comfortable with, but please adhere to Craftster guidelines about nudity/drugs/questionable things.

Also, since someone is choosing to share their life with you, it might not be appropriate to post the pictures in a gallery. Your partner may send pictures of themselves, their home or their family and may not want the world to see this. Therefore, please PM both me and your partner when you receive and the SENDER will post some pictures in the gallery. I will set up a gallery, encourage everyone to reserve a spot for their pictures and once your partners have received you can post some of your images. Also, if you want to share your pictures using an online album like flickr or photobucket I'm sure we would all like to see. If you really don't want to post any of your pictures on here that is ok, just please let me know.

Chatty swaps are happy swaps, so please make some contact with your partners and try to check in to the swap thread. Please PM me at the beginning and end of your photo weeks so I know you are on top of it. Also, please PM me when you send and receive. This communication is important.

I'm not going to enforce any posting once per week rule, but posting is appreciated. It is great to share in the process and helps things run smoothly.

IMPORTANT
Your partners have chosen to share their images with you, but remember that you keep the intellectual property rights for your own images. If you want to use the pictures sent to you for anything else you must get permission from the sender.  

OK, serious stuff over. Let the fun begin!



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address INCLUDING COUNTRY EVEN IF IT IS USA
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)

Which option would you like (1, 2 or 3) for sending pictures/album/scrapbook?
Do you agree to reserve a spot in the gallery when requested (even if you don't want to use it)?
Do you agree to treat the photographs with confidentiality if this is requested of you by your partner?
Do you understand that you maintain intellectual property rights over your own images, and if you want to use your partners images for any other project you must obtain their permission?
Do you agree to PM schnerby at the beginning and end of your photo taking week?
If I need a co-organiser would you like to be involved?
You pretty much have free reign photographing your week, but is there anything you would absolutely object to receiving? Remember, Craftster rules prevent anything too questionable.
Is there anything else you would like your partners to know?




IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Okie dokie, let's roll. I figure it's the 17th somewhere, and nearly the 17th here, so. And since I'm going to bed soon and I'm not sure how my tomorrow will be, I'm posting partners in my group RIGHT NOW.
I'll be sending you all the important information within the next hour or so. I'm new at this, so if I miss something or you don't get a PM from me by tomorrow evening (whatever your timezone is) let me know, and I'll get right on it. Also, please tell me when you've finished taking photos and when you send out your package, so I can update statuses.

Also, if I don't make sense or you see something wrong, it's because I'm tired. And if you're confused about something or have an issue, PM me and I'll get back to you ASAP.

PARTNERS
remember, you have two. that means you're sending to two people, and receiving from two people.

I was wanting to put my photos in a little book and send it that way, which option would I choose? I'm unsure if it's number 2 or number 3. I wasn't planning on a full blown scrapbook.

Also how will the feedback work for this swap? Do my partners have to receive my photos before I get feedback?

A little book would count as an album. If you handmake the book I would count that as scrapbooking.

Your both you and your partners should receive before you get feedback. Just the standard procedure.

Hope that helps. Any more questions, just fire away.

I was thinking, could I make an album about a week in the life of Mika, Mika being my 1 1/2 years old (see profile picture to the left)? It would be kind of fun having a partner that is also of somewhat the same age then, and we could see how a kid of that age lead their life in Sweden (where we are) and in the U.S. (or wherever my partner would be from). Just a thought, but I don't know if there are any more mothers/fathers here and if it would be o.k. to match us up like that...

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.

yaaaay I just send in my questionnaire. This is such a great idea! Why haven't I seen the earlier swaps?? Maybe I was too occupied with studying for my exams...

@gavagai hihi I just spend 15 minutes thinking about the "what would you not like to recieve" question and that was exactly what I not wanted. A week in a life of a toddler.... however I came to the conclusion that if this is what a week in your life is about and what is important to you, its just fine Smiley

I guess that is one of the reasons that I came up with my suggestion. Mika leads a wonderfully exciting life (climbing mountains (hills), fighting (toy) leopards, meeting giant people...), but you might have to be another toddler (or toddler's parent) to fully appreciate it.  Smiley
