This months theme and next months probably seems like a doozy since they're connected. Here's some ideas and encouragement for you.
Although we're doing two themes tied together you can do them in one sitting or split them up. There's no rules for this. As long as you have fun that's all that matters. It's not a competition and you're not bound by a contract. You don't have to have a fancy camera or editing software. You don't have to be skinny and zit-less (look at me ;)... If you like fun, there's no reason for you not to join in.
Septembers theme is "Pretty" which is totally open for interpretation. Part two is the same theme but Halloweened up. Pretty to Scary, if you will. Or Pretty to dark. Pretty to gruesome. It's up to you. It can be any number of things.
If you only want to do the Pretty part or the scary part, that's fine too. Like I said, there are no rules here.
Get your group together and decide on a pretty theme you want to do then think of ways to halloween it up. Say you start with a Disney Princess or Jane Austen theme, you can halloween that up by making them into zombies, vampires, ghosts, werewolves, witches... The irony of it all is the best part and the options are endless!
You could do a Seven Virtues theme and Halloween that sucker up by turning them into Seven Deadly Sins. On the Silly Girls Photography page on facebook you'll find some inspiration and new groups forming. Join in and have fun! It's a fun way to play with each side of the coin especially if you tend to do prettier or darker shoots.
Upload days are November 1st and 2nd. Each group will upload their pretties in an album and then create another album for their scaries.
If you have any questions at all post them on the facebook page - if you're wondering about something it's likely someone else is.
Thanks to everyone who's joined in so far. I love seeing what you all come up with and seeing how much fun you all have. As usual, spread the word. The more the merrier!
