share, reblog, DON CHARISMA

Photography Reblog Day

One of my new year’s resolutions was/is to get not just writers involved in co-promoting, but I also like to see visual artists involved too … so an experiment …


Today I will reblog a limited number of photography posts. To enter you need to post a link here in comments and you’re justification for me reblogging. eg :

“Don, I took this photo of an apple recently, I really like it and the way it turned out. Here’s my link – ######” … in your own words obviously, doh !

How it will go down :

a) It MUST be your own work, I won’t reblog some crap you downloaded from here or there.

b) Comments will remain open until I have 5 links or 2 hours have passed (current time 11:30am GMT). After that time comments will be closed and I will accept no further submissions. I HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME AND RESOURCES, please don’t take advantage of that. If you didn’t get in this time, there may well be opportunities later, so be patient, and don’t take things personally.

c) Reblogs are at my discretion, if I feel for any reason ANY submission is not suitable or not in the spirit of helping each other, I won’t reblog, without giving notice or explanation. This is collaborative co-promoting, for fun and mutual benefit, not a slot for you to blatantly promote yourself for free.

d) Priority will be given for authenticity and originality, over Photoshop skills. Within that do use your digital darkroom to bring the best out of your photos, and allowances are made for “art”, but not “spam”.

e) You agree to answer ANY and ALL comments left on your blog by my readers and interact with them in a charismatic way.

f) You agree to approve my reblog link, or retrieve it from the spam folder if it should end up there because of the WordPress fairies. Not doing so will result in the reblog being removed from our blog, and I simply will make a mental note to ignore you in future.

g) No gratuitous nudity, porn or what otherwise might be offensive to me or my readers.

h) Don’t submit anything that’s outside the spirit of my blog or isn’t congruent with who I (we) am (are).

i) You agree to permanent permission for us to use of your photo on our blog in the context of a reblog. We agree to use it for no other purpose, and respect your rights as the copyright owner. WordPress usually copies the photo as a result of the reblog process, so why we need to make this clear.

j) Where you make a profit as a result of the reblog, you agree to make a generous donation to our blog. Helping each other, not being a selfish C**T, basically.

If you don’t agree to any of the above, then don’t ask questions and don’t enter your submission. There are no exceptions. The only caveat is that donors and sponsors are always welcomed, and we do what we can to help in return, provided it’s ethical and within the T&Cs.

So get posting your favorite or latest photography here. I hope to be impressed and overwhelmed emotionally by what you’ve shot recently.

Open to pros and amateurs alike 🙂

LASTLY – Additional credit and priority will be given to submissions which have the words “Don Charisma” in the title of their post. Shows us that you’re thoughtful and posted specifically rather than generally.

LASTLY LASTLY – I have the flu today, so do cut me some slack and don’t take yourself too seriously … then I promise I wont either 😀

    1. Made me laugh mostly for the shock factor … and props for having such a great sense of humour, and balls bigger than the average … slot number 5

      1. Like it, the angle is cool and like the silhouetted horizon … also I don’t think you’ve editted it much, which I like …

        can you put it in it’s own post like the others have done please 🙂 … easier for me to reblog like that …

    1. Stunning Steve, you’re slot number 2 … like the inclusion of the full pano uncropped and that you did it without tripod, props for that !

      The non-pano shot is awesome too 🙂

      1. Fantastic 🙂 I have over 100 photos from that day, it was so hard to just select a few for my blog!! I have over 500 from my five weeks volunteering as well… saved for another blog entry soon!!

      2. LOL … know the feeling, I have 50000 still to pick in lightroom … my best is find a process that works for you and keep refining it … maybe I’ll do a post on my process sometime !
